What Is True Worship?
True worship is not merely the singing of songs to God, but it is the living of our lives in a way that pleases God. In fact, our singing and prayers are but the outward manifestations of a life lived daily for the glory of God.
Hebrews 13:15–16 gives us a good overview of the kind of worship that God desires: “Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased”
True worship includes:
- The “sacrifice of praise to God” (or the fruit of our lips)
- Doing good and sharing
True worship is not just the singing of our songs, but also the sharing of our resources. It is not just the lifting of our hands in praise, but also the giving from our hands to others.
