This is a Time to Worship Him.

Lately, I have been thinking about worship! Basically, what is worship?  May see it as praise, song, and maybe a little bit of dance.  Now, I'm not suggesting you break out into some sort of Soulja Boy dance.  Even though the word "soul" is in it, doesn't mean it will be a form of worship.

But think about it.  What is worship? It really isn't just the first 30 minutes of church where the guitarist comes up and you sing a couple of songs.  Of course that 30 minutes is a form of worship, but what I am talking about is going past that. {Psalms 150: 3-6 }I'm talking about going past that stage of singing Halleluiah to actually living it.
According to Romans 12:1-2, we are a living sacrifice to God:

{ "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God."}

Our lives need to be a form of worship.  When you are at the grocery store, spending time with your friends, going for lunch, heading to work, talking to a stranger, have it all be a form of worship.  This means your life reflects Christ in your life.

Usually when you follow Christ, others can see it.  So as a form of worship, have your speech, your actions, and your life be as though He was right before you, because He is! 
As you quickly realize that our lives are to be a living and holy sacrifice to Him, our tongues will speak sweeter and our lives will reflect of Him to the world.  
Remember, Christians aren't perfect.  According to the Bible, we have all sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God! Romans 3:23. We are not perfect.  Only Jesus was ever perfect! So, when you fall,when your life isn't a living sacrifice or a form of worship, realize that the Lord does forgive.  But just because He forgives, it doesn't mean we can continue to do so. John 8:3-11. Like a good daughter or son, we know that our parent knows best.  He does. Living for Him isn't just the only form of worship, but many ways we set ourselves before such an incredible God. When you do, you will fall more and more in love with Him!

Rejoice in the Lord, again I say rejoice! Rejoice with your voice, with your body, and with your life!  
Rejoice in Him, my friends,
L. J. Christian
