Pursuing a Life of Worship

Live a Life of Worship


“One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the all the days of my life to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.”

Psalm 27:4 (NIV)


To possess an authentic beauty, a woman must learn to live a life of worship. She must be first a true worshiper of God in spirit and in truth. One can worship God if she has known God personally and intimately. A woman can only be a true worshiper if she has the right knowledge of God or has established a deep and intimate relationship with HIM. In order for a woman to possess a true spiritual beauty, her life must be an exhibit of an authentic worship.

Worshiping God does not only involve worshiping God in the sanctuary or in His tabernacle, but true worship can be observed by the way we conduct our daily life, as it is written in Romans 12:1.

"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy to offer your bodies as living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God. This is your spiritual act of worship.”

Romans 12:`1 (NIV)


Maintaining purity and holiness in our daily walk is a true act of worship. A life of worship is not only a life consecrated to beholding the beauty and glory of the Lord but it is also a life committed for the works that will bring glory to God. A worshiping heart houses total adoration for the Lord. A woman who delights in worshiping God finds her greatest joy and fulfillment in God’s presence.

At the time when Jesus was presented at the temple, there was an old woman whose name is Anna, who was a prophetess, and she was eighty- four years old. Anna became a widow after seven years of marriage then she spent her time in the temple worshiping God, fasting and praying day and night. She had been a widow probably for about sixty years.

Anna did not find it necessary for her to find a new husband when she became a widow, instead, she dedicated her remaining years to God, delighting in His presence, worshiping and adoring Him. For Anna, her ultimate delight is not found in the loving arms of a man, but in the loving presence of the Great and Awesome God of the universe and she is complete in worshiping Him (Bible Text: Luke 2:36-38).

I admire another sister in Christ who has been a widow for more than twenty-five years. Sister Elsa lost her husband in a tragic earthquake in 1990. But after that unfavorable circumstance, she did not consider marrying again. She set her focus on raising her son and cultivating her relationship with the Lord.

Today after many years of being a widow and single mother, sister Elsa finds full satisfaction in the Lord. She spends a great deal of her time serving Christ. She gives much time for volunteer work which involves reaching out to urban poor and children. For her, serving the Lord alone completes her.


Let us be satisfied in beholding the beauty of our King.
