“Worship”Categories: Minister's Corner
We are living in uniquely difficult times. Our current experience is unlike any other that we have faced before. There are many challenges that we have overcome during this pandemic individually and collectively. One of the many challenges we continue to face is to remain committed to sincerely and reverently worship our great God.
Worship is essential to our relationship with God. It should be stated that while our location for worship has changed, the intent and desire of our heart should not change.
Worshipping virtually has been a blessing in many ways. The challenge is with the fact that we cannot physically be together. We were/are made for fellowship with God and with His family. In worship we experience these two great opportunities, being together with God and with His people.
As we worship God together, we must keep in mind that it must be offered in spirit and truth (John 4:24). In worship we must engage our hearts in sincere faith (Hebrews 11:6). We must offer a sacrifice of praise with thanksgiving in our hearts and on our lips (Hebrews 13:15) when we come together.
God desires that we worship Him because He alone is worthy of our praise. We need to understand that our eternal destiny depends on our worship of the one true and living God. He demands, seeks, and requests our worship because He alone deserves it, and because it is in our nature as Christians to worship Him and our eternal destiny depends on it.
Let’s anticipate worshipping God this Sunday!!
“Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth! Worship the Lord with gladness. Come before him, singing with joy. Acknowledge that the Lord is God! He made us, and we are his. We are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.” — Psalms 100:1-5
