I urge you therefore brothers in view of God’s mercies that you present yourself and a living sacrifice holy and acceptable unto God which is your reasonable act of worship.” (Romans 12:1)
The modern church has a confusion over the truth of worship. For many, it’s an event that occurs once a week — typically, on Sunday. It’s a place you go to, not an action of the will. It’s a service of singing praise songs or hymns, but not giving or instructing.
Yet, Paul tells us worship is a result of contemplating the mercies of God that leads to a surrendering of ourselves to Him. Jesus told the Samaritan woman that a day was coming and had arrived when God would be worshipped in spirit and truth.
Before you can worship the God of all mercies, you must first contemplate such mercy. Then make the presentation of yourself to Him and it will lead to worship in spirit and truth. This isn’t a once-a-week vitamin, but a daily activity of contemplation and surrender.
Prayer: Father, when I consider your mercies towards me I can only present myself to you wholly and devoted. I bow in worship before you thanking you for such an opportunity. In Jesus name Amen!!
