Sunday Praise

Worship: "The Heart of Worship"

"I'll bring you more than a song, for a song in itself is not what you have required. You search much deeper within, through the way things appear; you're looking into my heart..." How many times have I gotten so excited to sing my favorite worship song during a church service that I don't focus on the words or the One I'm singing to? How many times have I gotten distracted by the people beside me; the odor from in front of me; the whispering behind me? Being able to sing words mean nothing if my heart is not worshipping, glorifying and magnifying the wonders of the Lord. "A song in itself is not what you have required..." when I can focus my thoughts and my heart on the blessings that I have been given through Christ's sacrifice for me, then I am truly worshipping. Whether I worship Him through music or through my spiritual gifts, God wants my actions to be worshipful rather than an afterthought. How convicting to dedicate all of my words, skills, actions and thoughts to worship the One who made me.
