Whenever you hear the word worship, what comes first in your mind? Is it singing church songs, saying “hallelujah!”, or going to church? You are right about these things—but worship is far more than singing or doing church activities. It’s more than being piously attending church every Sundays, fasting, or giving tithes. WORSHIP IS A LIFESTYLE.

True worship sets your heart right before God. That is, whatever you do—whether you are eating, walking, reading, cooking, writing, or playing some sports—you offer it all to God. The bible admonishes us to offer ourselves as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God. Yes you have heard it right: We must offer our bodies as a living sacrifice. That means we must submit our mind, heart and body to God—not 89% or 99.5% but 100%!

Being a living sacrifice is not easy—because we can easily crawl off the altar anytime we want! So how do we guard ourselves from being drawn away by the world’s lust and continually walk with God?

We cannot do it—of course, because we are only humans. But with God’s help, we can. We may be weak, but God can make us strong. We may be tempted, but God can keep us from sinning. If you are in a tempting situation, you can be sure that you can get out of it. The bible says so:

-No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.- (1 Corinthians 10:13)

-I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me-(Philippians 4:13)

See? There’s always a way out…:)

    We have this connotation that worship is service... But it is not... We are thought that worship is offering to God what we have 100 percent... But it is not... One reason is that, service is what we do not what we offers... and we can't give 100 percent of what is ours because we simply do not have any to offer... All that is here on Earth is His and none is ours... But worship is putting emphasis on God... Worship is putting God in the center of our lives no matter what... Regardless of what you do - because it does not matter to God... Worship is something but everything that a Christian must do all his life... Worship is our lives offered to him, though imperfect but sincere...
