What does it look like to worship God? What does it really mean to praise Him with all your heart? Alistair Begg looks at several illustrations in the Bible attempting to understand how God wants us to revere Him in worship.
What Is True Worship?We live in a culture that is self-focused. Sadly, even our worship can become about how it makes us feel or what we get out of it. We may go to church because the songs and the routine give us warm feelings, or we choose to skip church because we don’t feel like going. But the Bible is clear that worship is not about us. It’s about God. His Word instructs us to worship because He deserves our praise. Teaching from Psalms, Ecclesiastes, Mark, John, and 1 Thessalonians, Alistair Begg draws our attention to what the Bible says about worship. Genuine worship in spirit and in truth is only possible when we are captured by an overwhelming sense of awe and reverence in the presence of God. As we approach worship, we should prepare properly, engage our minds, and keep our hearts focused on the object of our worship, the one true God. Then, and only then, can we expect visitors to our services to exclaim, "Surely God is in this place!"
