How Can We Worship God Throughout Our Week?
Slide 6 of 6
Worship is not a one-time act that is to be done in a certain religious location on a designated religious day. It is a matter of the heart. It is a way of life. Charles Spurgeon said it best when he said, “All places are places of worship to a Christian. Wherever he is, he ought to be in a worshiping frame of mind.”
We worship God all during the day for who He is, remembering His omnipotent, omniscient holiness. We have faith in His wisdom, His sovereign strength, power, and love. We walk out our worship with our thoughts, our words, and our actions.
We wake up thinking about the goodness of God in allowing us another day to live, bringing honor to Him. We get on our knees in prayer, offering our day and ourselves to Him alone to do as He pleases. We are quick to turn to Him because we are walking beside Him in everything we do and with unceasing prayer.
We give the only thing God wants: we give ourselves.
The Privilege of Worship
A.W. Tozer said, "The heart that knows God can find God anywhere ... a person filled with the Spirit of God, a person who has met God in a living encounter, can know the joy of worshipping Him, whether in the silences of life or in the storms of life."
To God our worship brings the honor that is due to His name but to the worshipper, it brings joy through total obedience and submission to Him. It is not only a mandate and an expectation but it is also an honor and privilege to know that an all-powerful God wants nothing more that our adoration.
