Worship is to be a way of life, one in which we honor and glorify God for who he is and what he has done.
In true worship, we stand in reverent awe before him, acknowledging him to be our God, submitting to his sovereign rule in our life, and giving him our very best. Our lives are offered to him as living sacrifices. All that we do is sacred, because every act is lifted up to him as an offering.
Worship Wherever and In Whatever
Of course, there is something unique and significant about believers coming together in corporate worship. But when they leave, they do not cease to worship but rather continue to honor and glorify God wherever they go and in whatever they do.
Question for Reflection
- Do you view worship as a way of life or just something you do on Sunday morning?
- How could viewing worship as a way of life all of life change the way you live throughout the week?
