Here are ten practical suggestions for a richer worship life. Some of these, no doubt, you already do. Some of these may not ring your bell at all. Remember, this is not a magical list of things you can do to worship God, but they will give you more of a continuous worship experience and, therefore, daily renewal. The list is by no means exhaustive.
3. The Bible
8. Public Worship (Church)
9. Family Worship
Being Overwhelmed by God’s Greatness
The bottom line is this: Worship is a personal expression of being overwhelmed by God’s goodness and greatness. Worship includes any activity that enhances or expresses your understanding of God’s supremacy and your submission to Him. Your communication of that concept is limited only by your creativity. You can do it any way you want. You can do it in public or in private.
Lord, when things are going really well, it’s easy to lose our focus on worshiping You, when that should be the very cause of worship. Lord, when we feel hollow and think life is pointless, the way out of that must certainly be to come into Your presence and commune with You. No matter what our circumstances, the way we satisfy the soul’s deepest hunger is always the same—we must learn to worship our Creator. Lord, I’m not sure what You want to do in our lives, but I know You want to do something. So I pray You’d help each of us respond to Your promptings. Help each of us to continue to grow as worshipers of You, the one true God. In Christ’s name. Amen.
For the glory of Christ and no other reason,
