Worship The Lord
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him…
Every time you have the opportunity to worship the Lord, do it wholeheartedly in love. As new creations, “we’re the true circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh” (Philippians 3:3). We’re the true worshippers that the Lord seeks. When you learn to worship the Lord passionately, at all times, irrespective and independent of circumstances, you enhance the ministry of the Holy Spirit in your life. You’d experience rich fellowship, His supernatural guidance, love and grace in a greater measure.
Besides the fact that worship is a blessing to you, in that it helps to tune your spiritual attention to God’s frequency, you give the Lord what He deserves when you worship Him. One of the ways you express yourself to the Lord in worship is through singing. The Holy Spirit loves singing. Ephesians 5:19 says, “…Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.” Matthew 26:30 tells us how Jesus and His disciples sang a hymn: “And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.” Learn to sing to the Lord in worship.
Worship isn’t for those with the best and most sonorous voices. We don’t sing to the Lord because we’re good singers; we sing to worship Him. So, it makes no difference what your voice sounds like: learn to worship the Lord with singing. The choristers and worship leaders in Church may inspire you to worship, or help you learn the songs, but their worship and their singing will never suffice for your personal worship of the Lord.
When the disciple said to the Master, “Teach us to pray,” Jesus gave them a format of prayer; He said to them, “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name” (Matthew 6:9). Observe that He started with worship. Worshipping the Lord is a most important aspect of our ministry to Him; so, learn to worship Him with singing.
I worship you today, for your love, kindness, grace and tender mercies! You’re so glorious and worthy to be praised: your name is glorified forever, in all the earth,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
