Worship Is a Lifestyle

It is our response to God for who He is, and what He has done; expressed in and by the things we say and the way we live. Worship is incredibly powerful. It can physically change the neuro pathways in our brain. One moment we are stuck in our thoughts about a challenging situation, the next moment we hear the intro to our favorite hymn or worship song and our brains immediately light up in the memory center and send out a positive response throughout the brain and body. The challenging thoughts surrender to the higher thoughts of worshipping the Lord. As much as I love to sing as part of my worship, I get excited to see in the scriptures other ways we can worship.


1. We can worship while we WORK. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” Colossians 3:23-24


2. We can worship through our SPEECH and THOUGHTS. “May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14


3. We can worship with our SERVICE. “Therefor, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God- this is your true and proper worship.” Romans 12:1


One common element that runs throughout these acts of worship is SACRIFICE. This was demonstrated by Jesus throughout His life and ministry. His whole existence was to love and worship the Father. We can, “Through Jesus, continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise, the fruit of the lips [heart and body] that openly profess his name.” Hebrews 13:15 When we offer our daily work, speech, thoughts, and service as a sacrifice of praise it changes the whole outlook of our lives. So let us worship, wait on the Lord, be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart. -Psalm 27:14 (NKJV)
