The true worshiper- that human being that worships the father from the heart and not from the head; that being whose entire life is an offering of worship unto God! Are you a worshiper?
‘But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way.’ John 4:23 (NLT)
Worship goes beyond singing. It is a lifestyle, one that is made of various activities that can all be rolled into one huge act of worship to the Almighty God. Everything a true worshiper does is in the consciousness of the sovereignty of God. This reverence for God governs the way that he or she lives. A true worshipper is led by the spirit of God, thus endorsed as a child of God (Romans 8:14).
A true worshiper knows God,what pleases him, and does it. A true worshiper doesn’t follow God for material benefits. Even in times of utmost need, he or she follows and worships God for who God is. All material gains that others crown principal are simply add-ons for a worshiper! (Matthew 6:33) Are you a true worshiper?
A true worshiper worships from the heart- sincere, raw, honest, non-superficially. He or she doesn’t worship from the head, does not analyse what the song that will impress the crowd the most is. No! A true worshiper channels that one song to the one to whom all praise is due. A true worshiper is not ashamed to express joy and excitement, be it through dance or screams, in the presence of the great king. Clothes and jewelry don’t take first place on a true worshiper’s priority list, a sincere heart,clean hands and a holy life matters more!
A true worshiper worships in faith-he or she can’t see God,yet rejoices greatly in the fact that God sees and hears the worship being rendered. A true worshiper’s life is in God’s hands- whether good or bad, plenty or not, the worship goes on because God takes first place always!
Are you a true worshiper?
Paul has given this advice:
‘And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.’ Romans 12:1 (NLT)
Will you heed Paul’s advice? Please do.
God is looking for those worshipers who will worship him truly; who will worship him in spirit; those whose daily lives will be a continuous stream of honest and pure worship.
You can and should be a true worshipper!
Please encourage others to be true worshippers by sharing this with them.
