“Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.” (Psalm 111:1). Many of us attend church every Sunday. We go to Sunday School then proceed to the worship service and sing the hymns and praises to God. We also pray and listen to the message from the minister. But have we worshiped? Many come to worship God and expect to leave encouraged, lifted up, or happy and that is well and good. However, worshiping is not about what we receive but about giving ourselves to God. The psalmist wrote that we should praise God with our whole heart. Paul contributes to this about worship; “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” (Romans 12:1). You are to present your whole bodies to God in spiritual worship. Next time you come before God to worship, don’t expect anything, just sacrifice yourself to Him and you will be blessed.
Have a Blessed Day!
