Live Out Your Worship

“Let the name of the Lord be praised both now and forever.  From the rising of the sun to its setting, let the name of the Lord be praised.” (Psalm 113:2-3)

            Worship is to be lived.  That is God’s intention.  He never intended that worship be confined to a building, or to a place, or to a time.  We gather for worship at a place, at a building, and at a time, but if there is where it ends, we are off target.  We gather for worship in order to then scatter for worship.  We take it with us into the world, so that daily we may live out our worship of the Almighty, allowing His light in us to shine onto and into the lives of others.
            Worship is walking with God in the awareness of His constant presence.  This is to be experienced at the personal level first and foremost, and then it is to be expressed, demonstrated, and lived out before the world, so that others may come to glorify God with us.

Lord, As we experience worship in this day, help us also to live it out for Your glory.  Amen.
