What Is Worship?
I find myself constantly writing words…looking for the right thing to say – the perfect way to convey my points in my articles…
…sometimes I need to just realize that I don’t have the world’s best answer…and that the Bible is the only place I need to turn to speak those morsels of wisdom we all need.
Such is the case with the answer I began seeking a few years back when I started re-evaluating my worship ministry, how I do worship, and why I do worship. I knew it had to begin with one question…
“What IS ‘worship’?”
How beautiful and true are the Words to answer the question … Romans 12:1-2
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
