Happy Transformed Through Worship Sunday!
Worship is more than singing songs, it is a heart posture of yieldedness to God. It is a surrender in intimacy of all that we are to all that He is. Worship is not about us and what we like. It’s about loving a King! He is worthy of the worship that causes His heart to dance. Lord may we love you, who you really are, not a “god” made in our own image-created in our imagination to suit our needs and wants.
We become like the gods or God we worship.
We will imitate the God we know. It is quite simple to worship a “god” created in our own image instead of the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. Traditions of men, our own ideals, and things we have been taught can replace intimacy/abiding relationship with God. The gods we worship write their names on our faces, and our rhetoric will sound like the one or ones we worship. Our mouths speak what our hearts are full of and only unity with God’s heart produces agape (sacrificial, unselfish, compassionate love). We will smell like where we have been. The aroma of heaven invades true worship. Only the true worship of God for who He is will reproduce disciples who love, live, and behave like Jesus (John 15:4-5).
