Worshiping God from a right place

January 5th, 2016

“And so the Lord says, “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.”‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭29:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Going through the motions in worship is not what God wants. It is easy to worship on the outside only or do what we normally do by habit.

In one church we used to call it the Pentecostal sway. People had their hands in the air and swayed backwards and forwards to the music, but you could not tell what was going on inside. Were their hearts close to God or were they thinking about work?

Worship is one of the only things that will stretch from this life to the next. We won’t need to evangelise, serve the poor or pray for the sick. So let’s get our hearts right with God and honour Him with both our lips and hearts too. Worshipping almighty God is too important to go through the motions.

Dear God, I pray my heart will always be right with You. When I worship You I pray it will always be from a loving heart that is grateful for all You have done and all You will do in the future. I pray I will just never go through the motions. I ask in Jesus name, Amen
