Topic: Be a True Worshiper [Wednesday November 29, 2017]
But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing. — James 1:4
Worship is so much more than just singing songs. It is a condition of the heart and a state of mind. We can even worship God passionately without singing a single note. Our worship for God is born in our hearts, it fills our thoughts, and it is expressed through the words we speak and the way we live.
The world often thinks of worship as “religion,” which could not be further from the biblical concept of worship. It’s about a personal relationship, spiritual intimacy and passionate expressions of devotion from people who love God with all their hearts. This is true worship.
The Bible says that God is seeking those who worship Him “in spirit and in truth.”
I find it interesting that He does not want just anybody to worship Him. He wants genuine people who sincerely live in His Truth. He does not want to be worshipped out of fear, obligation or religion.
True worship is a result of intimacy with God. Worship God today with your whole heart, and be a worshiper in spirit and in truth!
Prayer Starter: Lord, I don’t just want to offer You lip service. Instead, I give my life to You as a true worshiper, intimately connected with You. You are so good to me and I want to worship You “in spirit and in truth.”
