We are born of the Spirit of God.  Worship is not something we do.  It is what we are.

Romans 12:1 says: “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of Godʼs mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.”

Worship is not just singing songs. This is a part of how we express worship, but is not the goal.  The goal of worship is to glorify God. We are called to live lives of worship. When we set our heart, soul, mind and strength on Him and live our lives unto Him we enter into a life of worship, a life aware of His Presence. When we worship – give Him glory – we behold His Glory and what we behold, we become. We are transformed through worship, through agreement with His Spirit.

There are many aspects to worship – one of which being Praise. We are instructed to , sing, shout, bow, kneel and more before Him – this is active participation. These are times when the focus is solely on Him and we bring ourselves to him as a living sacrifice of praise. When we praise, our hearts are opened and the Father responds and moves among us intimately, revealing His heart to us. He loves to be with us this way! When His heart is revealed through His Spirit, we begin see ourselves for who He made us to be. These are times to be still and receive from Him, to hear what He has to say to us. In these places He ministers to the broken hearted, heals sickness, brings freedom from despair and hopelessness – His Spirit manifests Himself to us imparting Love, Freedom and Hope. Whatever the need, that is what He speaks to. We have already surrendered ourselves through Praise and now all there is for us to do in those moments is say Yes to the Father. Worship is a life line to the Father. We are changed in these moments of intimacy with Him and there is no end to the depths of His heart that He longs to reveal to us.

The more of Him we see, the more we desire Him. The more we desire, the more He pours out, transforming and maturing us in His Love.
