THE DELUSION OF WRONG WORSHIP 1

 
Devotional/YBP Audio: http://bit.ly/1YTHkPh

Romans 1:28
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient [KJV]

Many Christians think Worship is slowing down a song in a solemn way when singing to God. Others think you worship God when you bow your head or kneel or lay prostrate in prayer. Some people even think worship is tied to a particular place or structure. But worship is far deeper than any act that can be seen. Jesus told the woman by the well that true worship is done in spirit and truth (John 4:23-24). It is a spiritual reality taking place far inside the heart of a man.

Worship is from a root word which means 'worth-ship'. When you worship God you are affirming His worth- you are neither flattering Him nor boosting His self-esteem. Since no man knows God's full worth, it takes a transport into a rare spiritual reality to attain true worship. This is not difficult at all. In fact it is so simple that so many believers miss it.

Worship is a journey that takes place in a heart that is totally yielded to God (See Isa 66:1-4). When a man's heart leans even slightly on anything other than God, such a man's delusion begins till he is lost and may eventually become a vagabond in the vast field of the spirit realm.

Next time, we shall see how people may stray in worship due to the conditions of their hearts. Till then, examine the state of your heart.

Prayer: Lord, hold me closely. Let Your Spirit guide me in true worship. Let me not stray into idols. In Jesus' name. Amen. Not born again? Click: http://bit.ly/1iTOmol
