The Wrong Worship

I know this video is silly, but sadly I feel like our worship can easily be reflective of this.  How often do we show up on Sunday and go through the motions that are expected of us?  I know I am guilty at times of putting more work into how I sing, and worrying about what I need to do that afternoon.  We have all been there.  Last week I talked about how we’ve been given the privilege of worshiping our Father.  Shouldn’t we take this huge honor more seriously? 

One of my favorite verses is Hebrews 13:15 where it says,

“Through Jesus therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise, the fruit of lips that confess His name.” 

The words “continually” and “sacrifice” always stand out when I read this.  Our worship should be continual--not just Sunday mornings and not when it is convenient for us.  This verse is very clear that our worship is also a sacrifice.  Granted, there are going to be times where I have things I need to get done, but what I really need to be doing is offering my Father a sacrifice of praise every day.  Are you just going through the motions?  Who are you worshiping?

In Him,
