WORSHIP PART 2
True worship extends far beyond the realm of music; it’s a profound expression of a heart devoted to serving God.
In the book of Exodus, we witness a powerful depiction of God’s call to worship through service. When God led the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt, He didn’t merely free them from physical bondage; He also liberated their hearts and minds to serve Him in a way that would set them apart from the nations around them.
God’s instruction to Moses on Mount Sinai laid the foundation for this divine worship of service. This calling wasn’t just about singing hymns or offering sacrifices; it was a divine invitation to live as a community dedicated to serving God in every aspect of their lives.
Fast forward to the present day, we find ourselves in a similar calling. In Romans 12:1, the apostle Paul exhorts us, “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.” Like the Israelites, we are called to offer ourselves as living sacrifices, not confined to the realm of song but spanning our entire lives.
In a world captivated by external appearances and fleeting pleasures, let us not be swayed by the notion that worship is confined to our vocal cords. Remember that true worship involves embracing the call to serve God by serving others. May our lives be living testimonies of genuine worship, where every action and every endeavour becomes an offering of love to the One who first loved us.
