As a human being you were made to worship. You can’t NOT worship. Even though most of us get completely self-absorbed far too often, you as an individual human being are not big enough to worship. One day you won’t be here. There are too many things you don’t and can’t understand, know, or do.
And that’s the way it’s supposed to be. As incredibly valuable as you are to God, to others, and to the world, God has left Himself indispensable.
But showing God the worship He is worthy of does not happen in an hour or two each week in some church service, as important as that is. Worship is a lifestyle.
If you want to know who or what someone worships, look at their lifestyle.
Here are 10 ways you can truly worship God:
- Show up when people gather to worship Him. Yes, that usually means church. God has this amazing idea that church is about Him! When we gather with others for the express purpose of praising Him it “leaks out” into the rest of our lives.
- Take care of your physical body. God lives in your body through His Holy Spirit. (1 Cor. 6:19) That thought is almost too big to comprehend. Your physical lifestyle in such areas as diet, rest, refraining from addiction, and sexual integrity is caring for the temple where God lives. (Rom. 12:1)
