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?
