A Lifestyle of Worship

Hebrews 13:15
    Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name.

    What does it mean to worship God?  Is it just something we do on Sundays? The definition of worship is to show reverence and adoration.  With that being said, shouldn't we be doing this more than just one day a week?? Worship should be a lifestyle!

In John 4:24, Jesus tells us exactly what true worship looks like.  He said, "the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.  God is a spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth!"

So, how do we worship in spirit and truth? So often we go into our worship services and just go through the motions: singing the songs and lifting our hands just because we think that is what we are supposed to be doing.  We haven't even began to scratch the surface of worship when we fall into this routine! God desires for I'd to go deeper in our worship! Our spirits should be making a connection with His! This happens when our hearts and minds are completely focused on Him and all He has done for us!! 

So, how do we apply this to our everyday so that we are living a lifestyle of worship?? 1 Corinthians 10:31 says to do everything you do unto the glory of God. Whether it be at home,work, church, or anywhere, do everything as if you are doing it for God!! Give him your very best!!

I try every morning when I pray to offer myself up to God as a living sacrifice of praise and worship. I pray that He will help me live my life so it is pleasing to Him! To be holy because He is holy! That is a lifestyle of worship! Pastor Bill Johnson from Bethel Church says, "there's no better trade off than me giving all I am to receive all that He is!" That is so true!!!! There is no better deal than surrendering my life to receive the fullness of His!!!
