Lifestyle Worship Intro

We all know at some basic level that worship should be a lifestyle thing. However most of the time our first thought is probably more along the lines of  the latest worship CD, songs, bands etc. What I would like to do is a series of blogs on how to make worship a lifestyle and I would welcome your comments on how you are attempting to make it a lifestyle

  1. Hi Justin; for me worship is pretty much a state of my heart – for eg: I get into my car to go somewhere and as I start-up the car, I dedicate the journey to God, that He may receive the glory from whatever happens on that trip – from the way I treat the people I encounter along the road as well as those at the destination. When I have a job to do, I ask Jesus to give me the ability to do it to the best of our (His and mine) ability – thru Jesus in me. I find this works for me – I cannot speak for others nor prescribe to others, but I find that this is, for me a clear and obvious way to make every aspect of my life a style of worshiping Jesus our Christ and Savior.

  2. Interestingly enough, worship for me is a moment. It is the moment I give him that moment. It could take shape in many forms. It could be a prayer, could be a melody that I sing, It could be a message that I preach, It could even be my silence. If I acknowledge who he is, give him glory, and exalt his name above everything else that is indeed worship!

    1. I really like the idea of being in the moment. SOmeone I heard speak recently talks about “being present to the Presence”. It really speaks about engaging our hearts and all we have in worship!

  3. I think you guys are all on the right track and would encourage us all who are reading these comments to feed off of each others ideas and understanding. Come on guys, let iron sharpen iron! I’m just so encouraged by your guys comments – I know God is sharpening me even as I read.

    Similar to what you guys have said, I believe that any action, thought, word spoken, song sung, prayer, gesture, body language of ours that brings glory to God, or in some way reflects something of his nature and character in us as opposed to our own, is an act of worship and a sweet smelling in his nostrils. For me its all about the state of the heart towards our Father that makes it worship, or just another act.

    Rom 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.
