Priority of Worship

| | Comments (5)

Today's reading: Genesis 8:20-22

After many weeks and months cooped up in the ark, Noah, his family and all the living creatures with them are, once again, free to walk about on the dry ground of the earth. I can only imagine the hustle and bustle of activity as everyone and everything made their way out of the ark into the fresh air and sunlight. Noah, of course, was directing it all. And as the leader of the world, he could have allowed the circumstances and his responsibilities to consume him. But that's not what we see. Noah doesn't let the commotion taking place around him pull him away from God in the slightest way. Instead, once Noah's feet hit dry ground, he worships and gives thanks to God.

On a scale of 1-10 (1 being low and 10 being high), how much focus and importance do you place on worshipping God? How do you worship God? In other words, what does your worship look like? What benefits do you reap when you stop all activity to focus on and worship God? Tami

Worshiping God for me is ranked a 10. We are here on earth to worship him not only by attending at church and at bible studies and such but in all aspects of our lives his name must be lifted up and our behaviour consistent with his teaching. Our lives must reflect Godliness.

Our very lives are to be instruments of worship, and this begins with total surrender of all we are and will be to God, allowing Him to be not just our Savior, but also our Lord in the truest sense of the word.

I would like to think that worshiping God is a lifestyle thing. That what we do not just sing or attend church is worship, rather daily task such as work, parenting, marriage, and the way we treat others are acts of worship.

It varies from day to day so on a good day it it would be high and on a stressful day the lower end of the spectrum. I worship through praying and singing, at chruch and in my car when I am driving during the week. It lifts me up spiritually and I feel so balanced and grateful that I can worship anytime and anywhere.

Worship is the way, with all intensity, to put God first. We can for a time give all--body, mind, spirit--to God. Benefits? I'm sure there are many benefits to us, such as a healthy mind and heart, but first of all, we can be right with Him
