“But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way.” John 4:23 (p.812*)

  • I Am Made To Worship God.

Worship: Our personal and corporate response to God for who He is and what He has done, expressed in and by the things we say and the way we live. 

“And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength” Mark 12:30 (p.773*) 

  1. Passionately

“But as the Ark of the Lord entered the City of David, Michal, the daughter of Saul, looked down from her window. When she saw King David leaping and dancing before the Lord, she was filled with contempt for him… So Michal, the daughter of Saul, remained childless throughout her entire life.” 2 Samuel 6:16, 23 (p.239*)

  1. Thoughtfully

“Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.” Colossians 3:23 (p.904*) 

  1. Practically

“Listen to my prayer for mercy as I cry out to you for help, as I lift my hands toward your holy sanctuary.” Psalm 28:2 (p.425*)   

“Accept my prayer as incense offered to you, and my upraised hands as an evening offering.” Psalm 141:2 (p.477*)

“My eyes are blinded by my tears. Each day I beg for your help, O Lord; I lift my hands to you for mercy.” Psalm 88:9 (p.454*)

“In every place of worship, I want men to pray with holy hands lifted up to God, free from anger and controversy.” 1 Timothy 2:8 (p.910*)

Next Step:       This week I will pray daily: “Lord your search is through. I will worship you, with all my heart, soul, mind and strength.”
