I want you to think about what is your definition of worship. How do you define worship? We as children of God and servants of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ must understand what this word means. I want to introduce you to a powerful definition of worship. Worship can be defined as Jesus Christ being the center of your life. This is a powerful definition and can change the way we walk our walk with Jesus Christ. Think about it, there are so many things that we do but are we doing the things that places Jesus Christ at the center of our life? When we are listening and singing praise and worship music at church, at home, in the car etc., Jesus Christ can be at the center of our life. When we are helping a brother or sister in Christ through difficult times we can put Jesus Christ at the center of our life. When we are reading and studying our Bible, and we shut the cares of the world out, and focus on Jesus Christ and what He is teaching us, we are placing Him at the center of our life; thus we are worshipping Jesus. When we listen to the preacher preach the Word and truly listen we are putting Jesus Christ at the center of our life; thus, we are worshipping Jesus Christ. We must worship Jesus Christ by loving Him with our entire being. Matthew 22:37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ God also tells us in His word that we are to worship Him in Spirit and Truth. You placing Jesus Christ at the center of your life is a spiritual thing that requires you to place Him first and abandon self. He says we have to worship Him in Spirit and Truth. We have to tap into Him spiritually and we cannot fool Him. We can’t truly worship when we a worried about the world. Worry is simply a symptom of us not putting Jesus Christ first, and not centering our lives on Him. He wants us to worship Him. He says so in His Word and He seeks us to worship Him. John 4:23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is seeking us to worship Him, but He wants us to worship Him the right way, or should I say the only way, with all our hearts, with the right heart attitude. Let us give Him everything and worship Him all day long, He wants that from us and we must give Him that if we want our relationship to be all it should be.
