Worship is our response to what we value most.…
As a result, worship fuels our actions, becoming the driving force of all we do.…
Some of us attend the church on the corner, professing to worship the living God above all.
Others, who rarely darken the church doors, would say worship isn’t a part of their lives because they aren’t “religious.”
But everybody has an altar. And every altar has a throne.
So how do you know where and what you worship?
It’s easy: You simply follow the trail of your time, your affection, your energy, your money, and your allegiance. At the end of that trail you’ll find a throne; and what ever, or whoever, is on that throne is what’s of highest value to you. On that throne is what you worship.
Sure, not too many of us walk around saying; “I worship my stuff. I worship my job. I worship this pleasure. I worship her. I worship my body. I worship me!”
But the trail never lies. We may say we value this thing or that thing more than any other, but the volume of our actions speaks louder than our words.
In the end, our worship is more about what we do than what we say.

I pray that more and more that trail would lead to Jesus.
