That is true worship.

Psalm 95:1-11

Reference: Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; (‭Psalm‬ ‭95‬:‭6‬ NIV)

Explore: I recently attended a camp for foster families that our agency put on. It was such a great week of meeting other foster carers as well as enjoying some time to ourselves.

In an introduction to some carers I made mention of my faith. After that a few other carers referred to their faith or came up to me to declare their belief in God too.

One carer was an elder in her church, another was a regular listener to the local Christian radio station and still others attended various denominations. My husband started to do a general poll and worked out that almost 3/4s of the camp were Christians.

The agency we foster through is one of the few foster agencies not founded by a faith group, but still the majority of foster carers are Christians. I was really proud of this fact.

Application: It was great to know that those who declared with their mouth that they loved Christ were willing to sacrifice His love for the least of these. That is true worship.

It is wonderful to sing songs of praise and worship through music, but worship is thankfully much more broad than that. True worship is replicating the thing you adore.

When it comes to giving our worship to God may it not be solely through song and music, but may our whole lives reflect the actions of Christ. God loves nothing more than disciples who follow His command of worship – to love Him and love others.

Prayer: Lord, thank You that we can show our worship to You in so many different ways. May we use the gifts and resources You have blessed us with to give You all our praise. Amen.

How are you living out your worship?
