Worship goes beyond songs, words, notes, chords and instruments. Worship means to pay homage, falling before someone feet, glorifying a deity, honor paid to dignity, kind of reverence ascribing worth. Genesis 22:5 that was the first mention of the word Worship in the Bible, it denoted sacrifice and obedience.
Worship in today’s ages and to some people means songs and music, that is 3 praise song and 3 worship songs if there are more than 6 songs at your church on Sunday then you are privileged. Some believe doing a bible study and fellowship for them that is the understanding that they have of worship.
Worship is a lifestyle and way of life and today I am talking about worship with our works and we look at what the words says about,
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven”, Matthew 5:16
“But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men” Matthew 9:8
“And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified”, Acts 19:17
“By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name”, Hebrews 13:15
What God is looking is for our lives is not just our hands, mouths and bodies worshipping Him, bowing down or crying before Him.
He is looking for our works outside the Church, can our works bring glory to God. You can lift up the name of God by allowing your works to minister to the nations. Psalms 51 says that God is more pleased by works of righteousness more than a sacrifices of bulls and goats….
These scriptures talk about fruit of our lips, the fruit shall stand on its own and lift up God above all things, your works shall be seen by all men and that will cause them to worship God, they glorified God because they saw the power that was issued from God into these men and the people were drawn to the early Christian because they saw the works they did.
As a worship leader, singer, drummer or just the cables guy can your works outside the church or the worship service, can your works outside your angelic voice bring Glory to God or can it cause man to stand to bless God and declare that He is good when they look at you and see the fruit of your lips.
Your works, worship the Lord, they sound as louder worship in the ears of the world and even in God’s ears. Worship is beyond words, songs, pitches and music it goes into your works, attitude and lifestyle. Also the fruits of your lips and life all will and can declare worship to God.
