I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
How do you worship? Even though there are many ways to worship God, we all need to remember that worship is an action.
It’s not sitting and watching, it’s something you do. It is participation. It is not mere emotion. It is not a feeling, not a thought process, but rather the active response of your heart, your life, and even your body to God!
If you go to a worship service and watch everyone else worship, you haven’t worshipped… you have become a religious consumer rather than a spiritual communer. You’ve become a spectator rather than a true worshipper.
Perhaps you grew up in a church where you sang hymns and participated at some level. But, maybe… just maybe… you have never had a genuine experience of encountering the presence of God in true worship.
If not, I challenge you to take time even today to tell God you desire to be a genuine worshipper. He will honor your prayer because He has made you to worship Him! You were created that you might know Him and make Him known.
As a believer in Jesus Christ, worshipping Him intimately and intensely should be the driving force in your life. That’s why I want to call you to become a true worshipper of the Lord Jesus Christ today… whether in or out of church!
TAKE AN ACTIVE ROLE IN WORSHIP BY OFFERING GOD PRAISE THROUGHOUT YOUR DAY!
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
