Worship: A Cherished Moment of Sacrifice

Hallelujah, one word from God can change things for you!

Let’s Read Ephesians 2:19-22:
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
22 In whom ye also are builded together for a habitation of God through the Spirit.

Watch this praise song called “Praise in the Highest” by Hillsongs

Did it stir your spirit? I hope so because you have 5 seconds to get your praise on…5…4…3…2…1
Thanks you Lord God!
Come on now, praise the Lord!
You did not come here for anything – this is a praise and worship blog site. Praise and Worship is what we do here. So, get your praise on…

God is looking for you to praise and worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:23). Amen. Don’t let Him down. Be obedient to the spirit of God! Praise is comely for the Upright (Psalm 33:1) – that’s you!

Give God Your Best Praise and not watch a video of someone else Praising The Lord. He called you to praise Him! Here is some help for those who still cannot trust in their own praise, but their emotions:

Watch this song called “Sacrifice” by Bob Fitts

This movie excerpt from the Passion of the Christ, where Abraham is asked to sacrifice his son, Isaac. Can we give up something that we cherish,when God is requiring it as an offering? Selah (pause and think about it)!

As I thought about this question, I remember a book called Exploring the Mysteries of Worship by LaMar Boschman. He said that “Some Christians call singing worship. But worship has little to do with music or volume. Worship is not the act of playing a guitar or singing a song. It is not giving an offering or following a liturgy. Though these things can be expression of worship they are not of themselves worship,” and then He gives us an explanation of this cherish moment:

The Sacrifices

We gather together to celebrate Christ. We don’t bring live animals to sacrifice in worship as God required under the old covenant. Under the new covenant of grace, we offer up spiritual sacrifices.

Each of us “…as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 2:5).

It is the heart attitude that makes our external acts of worship spiritual. Just as the sacrifice of praise – the fruit of our lips – is spiritual when the heart is engaged, so is all of our singing, praying, preaching, and lifting of hands.

Paul instructed the early believers: “I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent service and spiritual worship (Romans 12:1 AMP).

What spiritual sacrifices do you offer to God? Which sacrifices would you like to try to offer in public worship?

Until next time, continue to be blessed and Praise the Lord!
