“Worship is one gift that he who has nothing can give to Him who owns everything.”
Someone wisely said -”Maturing in our relationship with Christ is dispensing with the wrong thinking we have about God.” This is true and one area the Holy Spirit changes our thinking is our misconceptions about worshiping God.
We were discussing this in our care group one week. After reading Scripture verses about worship, we realized that often our views of worship are not necessarily God’s views.
For example, is worship something we just do in church? What about the verse in Colossians that tells us to do everything as unto the Lord? This means changing dirty diapers and carrying out garbage, running a business and cleaning a house. It is also having our quiet time and singing praise songs in church. Those are all acts of worship if we do them for Him.
Let’s take a look at a few Bible verses you may not have read lately:
We Were Created for God’s Pleasure (not our own pleasure).
“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for Thou has created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created.” (Revelation 4:11).
