Authentic Worship in the Christian Life

The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord,
    but the prayer of the upright is acceptable to him.

~ Proverbs 15:8, ESV ~

Wisdom begins with the fear of God (see, Proverbs 9:10). To understand this, we ought to concern ourselves with whom God truly is. It begins with our immersion into reading Holy Writ. For there, we learn of God’s character. His heart. His devotion. Those who find understanding will be able to recognize God’s imprint within every fabric of creation. One of which is God’s desire for true authentic worship. For, this is what Christ taught the Samaritan woman at the well – to worship in spirit and in truth.

There is a difference in the demonstration of worship and the essence of worship. Today, it seems many people preform more of a demonstration of their worship toward God and miss out on the essence of worship. And, what are we to do to come to a place of worshiping God in spirit and truth? We are to be living sacrifices. Transforming our thoughts and hearts toward His will and good pleasure. God does not entertain demonstrations of worship. He desires our complete and total devotion toward His will and desires. It is the difference between superficial and authenticity.

Today, I will allow myself to enter into the essence of worship and not mere demonstration of my devotion toward God. I long for God to enter into my life and heart. Recognizing His satisfaction in the communion between my soul and my heart.

One thought on “Authentic Worship in the Christian Life

  1. As God from that day forward seals thee to see.
    You are accepted, forgiven and sealed in his love and mercy of Son for you, and you and you and me too

    1 John 2:1-2, 12 Eph. 1:6-7-13, Phil 1:6 God just love us all, there is no turning back from that. This being God’s view God reveals to each of us that stand in belief

    Can we do that even as we see Job in the book of Job did?

    Even deeper as Jesus did, who went to his willing death for us all to get new life in his risen life once one beliefs one begins to see

    Amen to that from Father himself in his unfathomable love for us all
