Positioned for Worship

September 9, 2013 9 Comments

“[True] worship… situates a person in a servitude and complete surrender of the will.”- John Spellman, Organic Worship

 Worship

It seems difficult to really comprehend a life lived completely for God. We seem to constantly chase after our own agendas and our own dreams. We can be the most faithful Christians but we constantly seek our own way.  Many even speak of the “freedom in Christ” as though it gives them the permission to set their own agenda. 

 However, God has called us to something totally different:

 “Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship.” – Romans 12:1

 Worship is not about getting what we want. It is not about seeking healing, direction or even deliverance. Deep worship happens when we position ourselves before God with a complete surrender of our own desires and agendas. It should be ALL about Him. Our sole focus is to bring him glory and honor. We become a living sacrifice that is fully submitted to wherever God will lead us. It is not a sacrifice unless you give all of yourself. A real sacrifice is never partial.  We have to go all in for Jesus.

 It is through this kind of Worship that we fully connect with God. The struggles of this world begin to grow pale and nothing else seems to matter. At this place we are fully alive. It seems so incredible yet natural at the same time. For it was this relationship that God created us for. This is our true DNA, to live as a worshiper of the Holy God. 

 

Your voice is important; I would love to hear from you.

 How do you position yourself for worship?
