Everyone worships something and what we worship influences every area of our life.
Worship is living a life pleasing to God.
Romans 12:1, Therefore, I urge you brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God ~ this is your spiritual act of worship.
Lamar Boschman... Worship is first and foremost for His benefit, not ours, though it is marvelous to discover that in giving Him pleasure, we ourselves enter into what can become our richest and most wholesome experience in life.
Intimacy with God breeds a changed heart.
When our worship is not centered on God, our hearts will harden.
Jack Hayford said, God welcomes those into His presence who want Him. The quest may be one of desperation or of delight, of frantic need or of a loving hunger for fellowship, but the motivation is clear-and so is His pleasure with it.
When I am living a life pleasing to God (worship), it overflows into loving others.
