“Learning to truly worship…”

“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

 

We are beginning our month-long series on what it means to be a true worshiper.  I don’t know if any of you have ever sat and thought about it much, because it is just something we do.  We get up and go to worship on Sundays.  I love it and it is truly my favorite day of the week.  

But during this month, I would invite us all to consider that worship is not only something we do on Sunday, but a lifestyle.  We don’t just “go to worship.”  We are “worshipers,” it is part of our identity in Christ.  Can you see the difference?  And to be true worshipers, it has to be a part of our everyday life.  

So, I would like to try an experiment this month.  Each morning I will share my prayer as always.  However, each evening, I will also be issuing a prayer reminder for us all to consider participating in the “Daily Examin.”  This is a prayer/worship time entered into each evening.  

For the last 10 minutes before going to bed, take a few minutes to think back over your day.  Ask yourself these questions:

  1. Where did I experience God today?
  2. Where was I blessed?
  3. What times did I need Him the most?

And then spend just a few minutes in worship to thank Him for what He has done for you in this day.  That is all.  Just a simple act of reflection and worship to acknowledge that sometimes we are so busy we don’t realize He is in our midst.

I believe that if we make this a daily habit, it will very quickly transform us all into “true worshipers.”

I am looking forward to hearing all of your wonderful stories as this month unfolds.  

Peace Brothers and Sisters.

 

Gracious God,

You are always with us.  You are always watching and working on our behalf.  As we enter into this season of growth together, please teach us all to fully worship You in spirit and in truth.  Make us deeply aware of Your presence in our daily lives, and create in us the desire to worship You at every turn.  For You are our Beginning and our Ending.

In the name of Jesus we pray,

Amen
