Q. My question concerns worshiping God. I understand that the angels worship and adore God above anything else they do and I believe we will do the same when we are with Him and I look forward to that time with all my being. But now I feel inadequate to give Him the worship He deserves. Do you have some teachings on worship that would teach me how to worship God with all my heart?
A. Worshiping God with all your heart means there’s nothing in your life that competes with God as the object of your worship. Nothing comes before Him; not your lifestyle, your possessions, your career, not even your loved ones. This does not mean you can’t have any of these things, it just means they can’t be more important to you than God is. As you can see, this is not a skill you acquire, its a love you express.
There is something you can do to accomplish this. By studying His word, you’ll learn more of the truth about Him. The more truth you learn, the more grateful you’ll become for everything He’s done for you. As you become more grateful, your spirit will align itself more with the Spirit of God. When that happens, no matter how you spend your time, the very process of living your life will be an act of worship.
Paul said, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving” (Colossians 3:23-24). “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship” (Romans 12:1).
