Worship Is...

God created you for His pleasure. Pleasure means enjoyment, delight, and satisfaction. Say this out loud with me, "God created me for His enjoyment, for His delight, and for His satisfaction." Wow! That's awesome! One of our chief goals in life should be to bring pleasure to our Heavenly Father.


One way we can go about accomplishing this goal is through our worship of the Almighty God. What do you think of when you hear the word "worship"? Most people think of singing and of praise music. Dear friends, worship goes beyond singing and a melody.



Worship is a lifestyle of praise and service to the Lord. You can worship God on your way to work and you can worship God while sitting in carpool line. You can worship God while cleaning toilets and while folding laundry. You can worship God in the midst of puck and diarrhea. You can worship God alone or in a group. God desires that you worship Him with every part of your life.



"Therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God's mercy, to
offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God-
this is your spiritual act of worship.
Romans 12:1, NIV

How have you worshipped God today? What are some ways you can worship God tomorrow and the next day and the next? Remember, worship is a lifestyle, not just something you're a part of at 11:00 on Sunday mornings.





"The LORD is pleased only with those
who worship Him and trust His love."
Psalm 147:11, CEV
