I thank God for you and pray that you are all blessed in everything that you do. I speak blessings of healing and peace in your families.
(Romans 12:1), Therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God, this is your spiritual act of worship.
Woman of God, I want to help you develop a closer relationship with the Lord through worship. When we think about worship, we think about being in a quiet place, lifting hands or kneeling in prayer. You might even think that you have to be in a church service to offer God worship. All of these are good but what if you aren't able to get into a quiet place or a church building?
Worshipping God can be done in a lot of different ways. We are to worship the Lord in every thing that we do and say. You can worship God by listening to gospel music while doing household chores. You can also worship God by praying with or for someone else. You can worship God by fasting, showing love towards others or by giving towards others. All of these are acts of worship. Worship is not just listening to soft music while lifting your hands in prayer. You can worship the Lord in every act of kindness that you do. Anything that you do that brings glory to the Lord is an act of worship. Music or church has nothing to do with your worship.
You offer your entire body as a living sacrifice to God by your everyday actions. The Lord does not want you to be limited to a church building or a quiet room to worship Him. If you don't put God in a box then you will find out that there is more to Him than you could ever imagine. We often put God in a box without even realizing it, by believing that He only moves in certain ways or situations. You are always going to come up short when you put God in a box. God moves in different ways according to the circumstances. You can give God praise and worship just by offering yourself to someone else. What I mean by this is, offer your talents, treasures or time to help someone other than yourself. When you do this, you are offering your whole body not just your hands, this is your spiritual act of worship.
God does not just want part of you. If you expect God to bless you abundantly, then why offer Him half of worship. Worship God in spirit and in truth simply means that you are truthful with Him and that your spirit is in sync with Him. Worship the Lord everyday just by offering yourself to Him and allowing Him to use you in any way that He chooses. Amen!
