There was a time when I thought that worship was standing before people and singing for their appraisal or to perfect your voice and to gain acceptance. You have no idea how wrong I was.
As I was growing in Christ, I started reading a book on the dimensions of worship and it gave me the shock of my life! I had no idea what worship was. In fact all I had been doing was making noise in front of an audience. Dearly beloved, worship does not only manifest at church on Sunday or once a week when you stumble upon a gospel song in your playlist. So what is worship?
Worship isn’t just a way of life but it is who you are. The Bible says your body is the temple of God. This means the way you talk, walk, act and react is a representation of worship. Yes, singing is worship too but it is not all there is to it. I imagine no one wants the guy who was pants down and drunk out of his mind on Saturday to stand before them on Sunday and attempt to bring the congregation into the presence of God during praise and worship section.
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? 1 Corinthians 6:19
Worship is not only a tool used to enter the presence of the Lord but it is also a magnet that attracts blessings, favour, wisdom and understanding of supernatural things.
Worship ceases to be about your voice the moment your daily life speaks otherwise. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the LORD (Psalm 150:6). Your relationships speak worship. Your actions speak worship. And most importantly, your connection with God speaks worship. Feeding your spirit with the word of God and starving your flesh from sinful behavior is probably the greatest act of worship there is.
Obedience is worship. Get to a point in your life where you don’t need to speak or introduce yourself and your agenda; let your presence speak worship.
