What we’ve forgotten about worship

sacrifice

Everything we do is a part of our worship.  In fact, we worship from the minute we open our eyes in the morning to the moment we close them at night.  We do this by giving praise to someone or something in what we do, in what we think, and in what we say.  When we do this, we give this person or thing a position of high authority in our lives.  However, this understanding of worship has been forgotten in our current society.  Worship today has been minimized to a genre of music or a time in corporate worship when we sing songs to God.  Although music styles and singing are important tools we use in expressing ourselves to God, they fall far short of total submission to God.  Only through the giving of our entire lives can we rightly worship God in a way that is holy and pleasing to Him.

 Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship.  Romans 12:1

Lord, help us to daily present our bodies to You as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing in Your sight.  This is the best form of worship we can offer You.
