Worship Can’t be on Your Terms

Worship plays a vital role in the life of a Christian because true worship is the union of your Spirit with God’s Spirit and that close connection to God is essential in order to serve God.

However, it is one thing to worship God and another thing to worship God the right way. We see in the Old Testament in Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy that God had specific instructions for the Israelites for how they were to worship Him. Even though God had declared himself as their God, God still required them to worship Him in a certain way.

The same goes for us today, in the New Testament even though the means by which we worship God differs from the Old Testament, God still requires us to worship him the right way.

So, what is the right way of worshipping God?

John 4:23,24 describes the characteristics of true worshippers they worship the Father in spirit and in truth.

23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

JOHN 4 : 23-24

Therefore, true worshippers must be born again and filled with the Spirit and in truth which means in accordance to His Word.

When you worship it isn’t necessarily about how you feel, you shouldn’t rely on your feelings. It also isn’t necessarily about what songs you are singing or how you are singing or what you’re sacrificing or tithing.

Rend your heart

    and not your garments.

Joel 2:13

As Joel 2:13 says: “Rend your hearts, not your garments”, don’t focus on the acts of worshipping but focus on who you are worshipping. Let there be a union with your Spirit and God’s and with a sincere heart worship God.
