THE BEAUTY OF TRUE WORSHIP By Benjamin Anabaraonye
One thing I have desired of the Lord,that will I seek:that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,to behold the beauty of the Lord ,to inquire in His temple.Psalm 27:4(NKJV)
What a beautiful declaration by the Psalmist and great worshiper-King David.It was this lifestyle of worship that made King David to be called "a man after God's own heart".
True Worship causes us to focus on God beholding His Supremacy,Strength and Sovereignty.This demands taking our eyes off our trials,toils,travails or even triumphs to focus totally on God.
As we truly worship,we declare to God His worth in our lives and usually we express it through songs of praise,thanksgiving and adoration. However,it involves more than merely singing songs to God.A lifestyle of worship is what we, as Christians are called to.This is to be expressed in our every day lives as we learn to put God first in all we do and always acknowledge Him as our all in all.
True Worship is the one thing that is needful which Mary chose above her sister Martha.(LK.10:38-42)
Such attentiveness to the words of Christ and readiness to do His will.Mary was able to feel the heartbeat of Christ and thus did the right thing at the right time.
In expression of true worship,
"Mary took a very expensive bottle of perfume and poured it on Jesus' feet.She wiped them with her hair,and the sweet smell of the perfume filled the house".Lk.12:3(CEV)
