Five Minute Friday :)

Worship isn't always a Sunday thing.

I get caught into the trap of believing that worship is only standing in the third row on the left,
singing the song projected onto the screen at the front of the room.
That it maybe is singing along to the playlist on my iPod;
but nothing more.

I couldn't be more wrong.

God and I- we're still working on my understanding of this mystery,
but we've come a long way.

I believe that every act of goodness, done out of a desire to be more like Christ, is worship to him.

For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice,
    the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.

Hosea 6:6

Even before Christ became the final offering, the prophet Hosea speaks the heart of God.
God worship isn't sacrificing on an alter-
it is the daily sacrifice of self,
death to self in honor of God.

Music is a beautiful part of worship, yes,
but the heart of God is so much bigger.

Our lives are our song.
We are the offering.
This is worship.

And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.  For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.
Luke 9:23-24



  1. Visiting from 5MF.

    LOVE that you said

    Our lives are our song.
    We are the offering.
    This is worship.

    This is it! Exactly! Love it.

    1. Thank you! It's not always an easy song, but it's good! :)

  2. Beautiful truth here. Hosea's story is one of my very favorite in the bible. Yes, He loves our lives lived in worship in spirit and in truth in the daily, the minute, the minuscule, the mundane!

    1. Thank you! Hosea is one of my favorites, too! It's one of the best pictures of love.
