God wants us to worship him. But how do we do that?
Sometimes we struggle to answer that question. We gather together on Sunday to worship. There we pray and reflect and come away with a sense of God's presence in our lives.
Then what? What about the other six days in the week? How do we worship God when we're changing diapers, negotiating a contract, or taking the kids to soccer practice?
We can worship in those situations by seeking to do everything for the glory of God. In other words, we worship God when we allow our thoughts and actions to be used to reveal who Jesus is. We might not be able to share the gospel in every situation, but
we can at least attempt to manifest the fruit of the Spirit and try to love our neighbor as ourselves.
If we see our whole lives as filled with opportunities to worship God, then we'll have a new sense of purpose. No longer will we think worship is only on Sunday or when we're having our quiet time. Worship will become an active thing, an integral part of our everyday lives in the world. Paul urges us in Romans 12, “to offer our bodies as living sacrifices.”
Because God is Spirit (John 4:24), our worship of him cannot be confined to a building. It must overflow into the entire world, impacting the lives of those around us with the life-changing message of God's love. Amen.
Grace and peace to you,
For Mercy Street Ministries, I’m Stan Baldwin.
