Verse of The Day : O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker. Psalms 95:6
Thought of The Day : Worship belongs to God and must not be directed to someone else.
LISTEN : The call for worship is a call to all. That is, everyone is to worship God. No one is exempted from the worship of God. We all owe our lives to him, hence, we should realise that, worship is a debt we owe to God. This debt could only be paid by being sincere in our worship to him. Our worship to him must be in tune with his will. Worship must be sincere, deep and spirit – filled. The Bible says,
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.“
Beloved, do you worship God in tune with his will? It would be difficult to worship God in truth and in spirit if you don’t acknowledge that, you’re his creature and the sheep of his pasture. Until you acknowledge what God has done in and for you, you will continue to take his goodness for granted. Worship is God’s exclusive right. As a matter of fact, if you’re not worshiping God you’re wasting your life. That’s why the Psalmist says,
“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker.“
God is our maker, therefore, we should worship, bow down and kneel before him. Like the Psalmist, I’m extending same invitation to you today. Come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker. What does it mean to worship? It means an expression of reverence and adoration to God. Beloved, rise let’s worship God. He is our maker and the sovereign God. Let’s declare his goodness and faithfulness to our world and generations. Be wise!
What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Acknowledge that God owns our worship, and should have it.
2. No one else deserves our worship more than God. Therefore, don’t hesitate to worship him.
3. Reflect on God’s good towards you, and offer to him a sincere worship.
4. Make it a point of duty to worship God always, as long as you live.
Prayer : Everlasting Father, I know that worship belongs to you. Therefore, I will not hesitate to offer my sincere worship to you. Today, I bow down and kneel before you my maker, in Jesus ’ name, amen.
A Word Of Blessing : Today, I speak on your life, receive strength and grace for worship. May heaven be opened to you now and forever, in Jesus ’ name, amen.
Reflection : Worship to God must be sincere, deep and spirit-filled.
