Worship

30 January 2020
‘Come, let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before the Lord our maker, for he is our God.’

When we speak words of praise and affirmation to those around us, we build our relationship with them. And the same is true about our relationship with God. Praise draws us closer to Him, and creates a sense of intimacy between God and us. When we adore God and thank Him for all that He has done for us, we focus our minds on Who He is and cultivate a grateful heart. Worship isn’t just singing songs in church. It’s also about how we live our lives. It’s about making decisions that honour Him and glorify Him. The Bible says: ‘Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering and come before him. Worship the Lord in the splendour of hisholiness’ (1 Chronicles 16:29 NIVUK). Sometimes our worship can become mundane. It can feel like we’re just going through the motions, saying all the right things, singing the right songs, but not really connecting with God or meaning what we’re saying. Not every style of worship is going to suit every person. But at the end of the day, we should be able to praise and glorify God no matter what we’re doing. If we can only connect with God when the music is loud and the song is one we know, then we may actually be enjoying the music rather than using it to connect with God. When we’re close to God, it won’t matter if it’s silent or there’s a full band, we’ll know we’re lifting our praise to Him alone. The Bible says: ‘Come, let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before the Lord our maker, for he is our God.’ Our worship should be done in humility, recognising how great our God is.
