Let Us Worship

“Come, let us worship and bow down.  Let us kneel before the Lord our maker, for he is our God.  We are the people he watches over, the flock under his care…”
Psalm 95:6-7 (NLT)

There is built into us an inclination to worship.  No area of our lives is worship-free.  Worship is a disposition, a natural tendency.  However, “You must worship only the Lord your God.  He is the one who will rescue you from all your enemies.” (2 Kings 17:39)

Romans 6:13 tells us, “…use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God.”  One of the laws of life is that what you focus on, you become like, so the more we focus on God, the more we will be like Him.

Spending time with God inevitably results in a heart that desires to worship Him.  So let’s make it a daily habit to listen to God.  “…the Lord is in his holy Temple.  Let all the earth be silent before him” (Habakkuk 2:20).

Are we worshipping God in a way that means we know His mind about what we should pray for?  Can we say with Paul, “My life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.” (Acts 20:24)

We come to know God better through worshipping Him with others.  There is something special that results from the act of coming together to worship—united together in one body to learn about God and praise Him.  “Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship, for they will walk in the light of your presence, Lord.” (Psalm 89:15).

Worship is enhanced by music.  So let’s “Worship the Lord with gladness”, and “Come before him singing with joy.”  (Psalm 100:2).

Prayer
Thank you, Father, for your Word, which shows us the many ways to worship.  Please help us never to neglect the opportunities we have to worship together and we pray for the day when all people will come to worship you.  May we never cease to worship you.
Amen
