5. Worship Is How We Live for God in Every Moment
Slide 5 of 5
God created us for His pleasure. The Bible says that He delights over us with singing (Zephaniah 3:17). God created us to worship. He doesn’t need sacrifices. That is why He offered Himself as a sacrificial lamb once and for all.
In return, God wants us to be a living sacrifice. Our spiritual worship is demonstrated in how we live our lives. Worship helps us to see a clear picture of the world through God’s eyes. How will we live our lives for others? How do we use the resources in which God has blessed us?
The Bible tells us that faith without works is dead (James 2:26). If we don't do what we say we believe, we don't believe it. If we worship with our mouth, but our actions don't follow, it's a ritual, not worship.
The worship God wants is for us to live a holy life. Not a perfect life, but a separated life. Set aside to be used by God for His purposes. True worship is living a life of love. It’s staying true to a moral standard. Without this, we can't operate out of love, and where there is no love, there can be no worship.
Worship encompasses everything and is balanced on love for God and others. We worship when we forgive those who have offended us. It’s the way we respond to those who can do nothing for us. It's the appreciation we give for the smallest gestures.
It's honor and respect—appreciation for life, the world, our blessings, gratitude, and thankfulness for each day.
True worship is demonstrated in how we live each day when no one is looking.
