We worship God not just because of how awesome He is, but also for what He has done. Worship is transformative as you let yourself feel the presence of God. It creates an atmosphere for us to listen out for God speaking to us.
If we think about the awe-inspiring world we live in and what it means to have the creator of the universe beside us every day, we will never run out of things to worship God for as we turn all our attention away from us, and onto Him.
It can be singing, praying, serving, giving, silence, an outpouring of love. Anything that fills our hearts with gratitude and is sometimes difficult to put into words. It’s an everyday practice, not just confined to Sundays. It’s pure and truthful and comes from knowing God better and realising what he has done for us, through his son Jesus. And it creates an atmosphere in which we can listen out for God speaking to us.
Let’s face it, we live in the most jaw-droppingly beautiful natural world and our worship springs from this sense of amazement. And nothing else competes. God doesn’t want our half-hearted worship, whilst our hearts are on other things: money, jobs, celebrities, material things. He wants us closer to Him. And focused on Jesus.
