God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. John 4:24
In the above scripture, God gives the core, foundation for worship. It must be in 1. spirit…. And it must be in 2. truth. Worship is an amazing thing. I’m sorry, I’m not able to use accurate words to express the beauty of worship. Worship is a place where God’s heart rubs with yours. Worship is a place where God’s pain become yours. Worship is a place where God is highly esteemed and feared and honored. Intense worship usually does not have much words….… and God is enjoying your presence with Him, and You….. simply don’t want to move from that place.
Man is made up of the body, the soul and the spirit. When the body dies, the soul continues to live. The spirit of man lies at the core of man. In other words, the spirit of man is deeper than the soul. And God says……. Those who worship Him must worship Him from the core of their being. It is wayyyyyyyyyyyyy beyond singing songs at church. It is way beyond lifting up our hands and saying Hallelujah….. it is a place where you and God are alone………
It is at this place where a divine transaction takes place. As I said, God’s heart rubs with yours….God’s passion becomes yours, and God’s character is rubbed on to you. Let me explain:
A couple of weeks back, Jeev was reading a book for Jaden. It was his favorite colours book. I was inside the room, coz we were getting ready to go out. As I heard Jeev from in there, I was surprised to hear Jeev read the book to Jaden exactly the same way I did. He had the same highs and lows that I did…. He used the same tones…. and the same style. It was really really interesting to see that!!! And the best part, I’m sure he did’nt have a clue that he was doing what I did!!!! It just came by naturally to him.
I’m sure you have heard many people say that whomever you associate with the most, you tend to have his or her style/ language/thinking style etc:- over a period of time. The same thing happens in WORSHIP. When we spend time with Jesus…. sooner or later we begin to explicitly show His nature! How awesome is that????!!!! I don’t have to slog to do what Jesus did…….. but it comes by naturally, and our heart is filled with compassion for people who matter to GOD!!!
Not that we are all perfect without flaws, but with every day we are moving higher up from glory to glory. IF you want to become more like Jesus, if you want to have the heart of Jesus, just get into your prayer closet……….. and simply WORSHIP.
“O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness:” Psalm 96:9
When we’ve been alone with Jesus,
There’s a difference others know,
And to them it’s like a fragrance,
That we leave where’er we go.
Let there be a REVOLUTION in your WORSHIP!
Have a fabulous month ahead!!!
