True Worship

“Do not forget the covenant I have made with you, and do not worship other gods. Rather, worship the Lord your God; it is he who will deliver you from the hand of all your enemies.”

2 Kings 17:38-39


What does worship look like? Is it raising our hands, singing loudly to the Lord, or making a beautiful noise? Certainly, worship has some of these components. I’ll be the first to tell you that I love to hear worship music in church. It fires in my heart and motivates me to shout a joyful noise to the Lord. But worship is not just an action limited to Sunday or Wednesday. Worship isn’t limited to the 3 songs we sing in each service. It’s not confined to the church walls or only conducted in the heart of the sanctuary. True worship lives in our hearts and spills out in the actions of our daily lives. True worship gives honor to God and defines us as followers of Him. Jesus tells the Samaritan woman in John 4:23, “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.” Our worship separates us from the world. It is found in our obedience, our sacrifice, and our priorities.


It is not glory, it is not honor, it is not riches that the Lord desires. It is a sacrifice. What are you willing to give up to follow Him? Surrender is the greatest act of worship that you can give to the Lord. Let your life reflect a heart of worship in all that you do.
