Invisible Worship

I was asked once, "What worshipping God looks like in my life". It was a question that I welcomed as an opportunity to testify and share, but it also identified a perception that worshipping God is largely limited to being visible and in a group (gathering) setting. This perception is supported by the many claims by Christians of "falling away" if one is not in a physical church or group.

My worship of the Father is by the  fellowship of  His Son.

My worship is not limited to a day of the week, but minutely as I am His Temple in where He resides.

My worship of the Father is my love for Him and His truth.

My worship of the Father is in serving my husband.

My worship of the Father is in the ministry of my children.

My worship of the Father is in the hospitality of my home towards others.

My worship of the Father is listening to that gentle voice in my heart.

My worship of the Father manifests in being still in Him and waiting on Him.

My worship of the Father is my Faith, my trust that He will never leave me or forsake me.

I can continue  on in many ways that I worship my Father, the bottom line is I am ALWAYS in worship of Him unceasingly, spiritually. My worship is not traditionally visible, but is real and acceptable of Him. My worship of Him is not validated by what is seen, but by what is invisibly visible in HIS sight. In spirit and in truth, may I always be.

"But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly." -- Matthew 6:6

  2. BrotherMark,

    Thank you! How profound! Your sharing comes at the perfect time, for I was tiring of defending the integrity of Gospel to those who claim to have the same beliefs.

    I truly feel as though I have a brother in Christ in you....
    Hugs to you and your family...

  3. Amen,
    Couldn't have said it better myself. It's amazing, if you stop and think about it, just how many ways in which we do worship Him.
    Thanks Hannah and GB!!!

    There's a real good study on Worship - what it is and what it isn't. It's from netbiblestudy.net.

  6. Amen!!!!

    I especially hearken to what you said: "... the bottom line is I am ALWAYS in worship of Him unceasingly, spiritually".

    In all things we should seek to glorify God and not ourselves.

    The LORD bless and keep you.

    Shalom.
