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.
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.
