TODAY’S DEVOTION. CREATED FOR DEEPER WORSHIP
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE. “God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24 NIV)
Worship is anything that is done in service to honor another because the person is worthy of honor. Worship starts with God. This is the most important aspect of worship that is often missed. Worship originates with God showering us with His grace and mercy. We receive forgiveness , deliverance, healing , protection, etc. He sent Jesus to die for us. He loves us beyond measure. He gives us everything and does not hold anything back because we are worth it to Him. However, it is critically important that we must be present to receive it. Worship is as much (even more so) for us as much as it is for God.
We could never love Him back in the way that He loves us. Our worship is our response to His great love, but the worship we give is so deficient of what He deserves. We give Him as much as we can empowered by the Spirit, but with human limitations hence it must be deeper. All of our worship is a response. It is not a work performed for God to gain His favor. Our response is to render our service to honor Him because He is worth it and we recognize we have nothing without him.
The habit of deeper worship is about divine gratitude and appreciation. The habit of worship is a way of showing God (and ourselves) that He is our priority.
Father in the name of Jesus. Thank you for making me see the tenth month in our year of Divine Empowerment. Help me to worship you more deeply and sincerely henceforth. Amen.
