An Expression of God's Love.
Creation is a Love letter addressed to us from God, when we take the time to enjoy it; in its entirety, it becomes a form of worship.
As with you, being one of Gods creations, are like a poem. At just a glance anyone can see that you are beautiful. It is only upon looking beyond the surface that one will experience the true depth of your beauty.
When one begins to appreciate this expression of Gods love towards man, something miraculous happens. The fact that each one of us has our own individual unique qualities that separates us from one another, but collectively as a whole we are a masterpiece of beauty. Enjoying one another as God intended, we enter into a greater form of worship.
John 4:23-24 says it like this "But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.".
As we begin to acknowledge the truth and declare praise to God for that which He has done, as well as that which He is going to do, we enter in to such worship described above "In spirit and truth".
It is so often over looked, but worship can be more than just singing a bunch of songs and playing music at church or on the radio. Worship can be in what one does, what one does for others as an act of kindness or love, carrying the right attitude in your daily activities. being consitant and following through on things that you have said and so much more can be considered as forms of worship. In your conduct along with faith, knowing that your Father above sees and knows all, that He is pleased with such worship. Romans 12:1-2 says it like this...
" 1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."
Loving Family and Friends
When we take care of our responsibilities as well as our daily duties, and treat them more than just obligations, in caring the right attitudes, this too becomes a form of worship. It these acts of Love and doing above and beyond what is required, one also enters into worship through what is done. You can do all thing whole heartily unto the Lord and it becomes an act of worship. When we are loving our family and friends, as well as those we do not know, this is an act of obedience in loving our neighbor as well. this act of obedience can also be considered worship.
Just a thought in how we are to carry ourselves through our daily activities, and put to question our every day attitudes, and rather if they are pleasing unto God, let alone our own self. It seems that when we carry the right attitude that it can affect all that surrounds us. Let create an atmosphere of praise in our conduct and watch the results on those around us and how it can affect them and their productivity... I think of the word to not only love in word but in deed as well.. This can be quite productive in the heart for worship toward the Lord.
