We Need to Be a Worshiping Church

May 23, 2021 Save Article

PRAY OVER THIS:

But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.

(John 4:23)

PONDER THIS:

Have you ever been in a boring worship service? Never. You’ve been in some services that were not worship services, but you’ve never been in a worship service that was boring. It might have been called a worship service, but what could be more thrilling? What could be more glorious? What could be more energizing? What could be more wonderful than when we come to worship the great God of eternity and lift our hearts to God in praise?

God’s great heart desires worship. Is God some sort of an egotist that we have to praise Him? Does He need us to boost His morale by telling him how good and how great He is? That’s not it at all. When you worship God, you enjoy God and God enjoys you. We would be better if we worshiped better because we become like what we worship. The church needs to be a worshiping church.

  • How might a “boring” worship service reveal more about those who are seeking to worship than it does about the God we worship?
  • How have you experienced enjoyment of God through worship?

PRACTICE THIS:

Spend time today worshiping God. During this time, don’t ask anything of God; instead, only praise Him for who He is.
