Every human being was designed to worship, and does worship—something.
Just think about Super Bowl Sunday.
Fans gathered, cheered wildly, exchanged high fives, and jumped up-and-down releasing their inner-child.
Or how about a group of millennials at a Selena Gomez concert?!
They idolize her–wanting to look like her, sing like her–wanting to be her.
We place football and rockstars on an altar and bow down in adoration.
But worship doesn’t stop there.
We put our loved ones and less tangible idols such as our careers, reputation, appearance, and bank accounts on pedestals.
|But true worship is really a matter of the heart.
It must be felt and experienced, not a mere obligatory going-through-the-motions.
True worship is a heartfelt expression of love.
It’s adoration and admiration.
It’s fascination and wonder.
It’s something that happens in your heart and soul when you begin to praise God for who He is and thank Him for what He has done.
Take a minute. Consider what it is that you worship.
What’s on your altar, sunshine?
I invite you to listen to the song and come, arms open wide, to the only altar that matters.
|“Worship the Lord with gladness. Come before him, singing with joy”
Psalm 100:2 NLT
