There is no such thing as “Worshiping God on Sundays!”
Let me explain…
Either you are worshiping Him during the week AND weekends or you are not worshipping God at all…
True Worship that results in worshipping God on Sundays comes from a life that lives for Him on Mondays.
Worshiping God when everything goes wrong only follows worshipping Him when everything is right.
You see Jesus talked about Vain Worship in Matthew 15:8-9 “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”
Jesus is not concerned if you sing your heart out on Sundays but then your heart doesn’t even seek Him on Mondays. Jesus said, ” It doesn’t matter if you have all the notes on key if you are singing for you instead of me.”
Worshiping God is not just about raising your hands up on Sundays but it’s about making the right choices on mondays.
you see, worshiping God is lifestyle not a live in the moment type of deal. worshipping God isn’t all about how you feel but rather a thankful heart type of deal.
if you are worshiping God just because the music puts you “in the mood” than you don’t have a clue about how good He truly is.
I’m no trying to be rude but I’m just trying to prove a point…
Worshiping God is praising Him for who He is and what he has done for you and me it’s not some religious show.
we gotta start adoring God during the week as He speaks to us though His Word and be in awe of Him as we kneel at His throne before we can ever lift a hand up on a Sunday.
Jesus tells us what true worship is in John 4:24 “God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.”
Worshiping God “in spirit” is not worshipping Him in some Pentecostal way but it is worshiping God when your heart is right with Him and praising Him for who He truly is! When you worship God “in spirit”, it doesn’t matter if you clap your hands or bow your head or even close your eyes with tears coming down.
the only thing that matters is that you are worshipping Him in truth.
just be honest!
that’s all that God wants when you worship Him.
He wants your heart when you worship Him!
He wants the only reason that you close your eyes and raise your hands is to be because you love Him.
maybe you don’t raise your hands- that’s okay as long as God has your heart.
But if he doesn’t have your heart and you are just not raising your hands to praise Him because you’re ashamed or embarrassed- that doesn’t roll with God…
Let me be honest, I used to be embarrassed to raise my hand or clap because of what others thought but if you are truly worshiping God it doesn’t matter what others think because you are praising HIM not them!
So, my challenge is worship God each and every day so you can honestly praise Him on a Sunday 🙂
