LIFE IN THE SPIRIT: A LIFE OF TRUE WORSHIP

KEY SCRIPTURE: Romans 12:1 ISV” I therefore urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercies, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices that are holy and pleasing to God, for this is the reasonable way for you to worship”.

LIFE IN the spirit is fundamentally a life of true worship. The Lord said the father seeks true worshippers, who shall worship the father in spirit and in truth. Worship as much as it involves singing is an act of giving off oneself in love to the one, he or she worships. This is the reason the normal posture in worship involves bowing down, casting oneself on the floor. It is an act of total submission. Psalms 95:6 KJV. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker”. True worship is always an attitude of total submission.

True worship is also conscious of the presence of God. It is conscious of the power, majesty, love and the might of God. True worship is consumed with love for God and is not concerned about himself or herself, that is the worshipper in any way. He or she is never concerned about what others think of him or her in the moment of worship. 2Sa 6:14 KJV” And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod”. David was careless of himself so much that his wife. Michal, Saul’s daughter felt he had disgraced himself before the young maidens. In verses 21 & 22 of 2 Samuels 6, David answered Michal that God chose him in place of his father, and he would play before the Lord. He added that he would be more VILE. This means he would make himself insignificant. In worshipping the Lord, we are insignificant

In conclusion, worshipping as a way of living in the Spirit is a life of sacrifice in everything we do. Prayer as worship is sacrificial. Studying the word of God is also a sacrificial act done to glorify the Lord. Everything we do as children of God is not for us, or to attract any attention unto us but solely to Jesus our Lord. This is what the Lord calls true worship. Our life as children of God is worship. It is doing everything to please the Lord.
