Worship is an attitude of the heart that expresses itself in a lifestyle wholly given to the lordship of Jesus Christ. Only a heart that is yielded to His will and purposes can truly worship Him.

Yet, worship is why we are here. For the Almighty, who created all things, finds pleasure and delight in us when we turn our hearts to Him and away from all that He has made for us to enjoy.

READ: 1 Chron. 7:1-3; Ps. 5:1-7; Ps. 95:1-6; Ps. 96:1-13; Matt. 14:22-33; Rev. 4:10-11.
HEART ISSUE: The act of worship reveals the true condition of our hearts. If something is shown to be awry, then repentance will make way for complete restoration to a place where pure worship is possible again.
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, remind us of the great privilege we have in being able to worship You without fear and shame. We find joy and strength in pouring out our love and gratitude to You. Draw us closer and closer. Amen.
