You are free to worship, because of the blood that was shed for you!

Hallelujah for the blood of Jesus!

It delivers us from sickness and diseases, drug and alcohol problems, self-centeredness, and pride. It covers ALL manner of situations and circumstances, if you believe that today?

Draw Close to The Lord!

God has pre-wired everyone to praise and worship Him in genuine spirit of true reality, and that is to worship Him freely. Let’s read John 4:23:

“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.”

“Isn’t that amazing?” said Dereck Prince in his article called “Free to Worship.” “Almighty God, who has the resources of the entire universe at His disposal, is seeking people to worship Him—people like you and me, drawn from a fallen race of sinners! What can be God’s motive? Does He have some deep need for affirmation and approval? Hardly! No—His Father’s heart yearns to reveal Himself in all His glory to those whom He has created. This is the highest blessing He has to bestow. The revelation of God comes first and foremost through His precious word—the Bible. “If anyone loves Me,” Jesus said, “he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him” (John 14:23). Through God’s Word, received and obeyed, both God the Father and God the Son come to indwell us.

This in turn draws us to worship the God whom we have received. The better we know God through His Word, the more we desire to worship Him. We may measure the place that God’s Word has in our lives by the degree in which we desire to worship Him.

First of all, we need to recognize that worship does not consist in singing hymns or choruses, or listening to a choir, or even in praying—though all these are legitimate activities. These can—or should—lead us into worship. More important still, worship is not a form of spiritual entertainment. In worship, we do not focus on ourselves, or our experiences, but on God. Worship is direct, intimate, personal communion with our Creator. It is the highest activity of which the human spirit is capable. But it goes beyond the spirit and involves the totality of human personality.

It is a mistake, too, to think of worship as something we only do in a congregation or in public. Worship should form the highest point of our private devotions. In fact, the original meaning of the word “devotion” is an act of worship. If we only worship God in public in a congregation, there will always be something artificial about it. It will be merely a religious “act” that we put on in the presence of others. On the other hand, united congregational worship can bring each individual into a higher and deeper awareness of God and His majesty than could ever be attained in solitary devotions.

Unfortunately, through the centuries, the Christian concept of worship has fallen far below the pattern presented in Scripture. I have researched all the main words the Bible uses for worship, and I have arrived at an exciting and revolutionary conclusion: every word used for worship—both in the Old Testament and in the New—describes a posture of the body.

By way of illustration we will begin at the head and work downwards.”

I’m sorry, but I have to go, please come back tomorrow for part two of this wonderful article by Dereck Prince. It will help your insight into why we are pre-wired to praise and worship the Father God, His Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. It’s very important so come back, OK!

Watch this praise song called “Free Worshipper” by Todd Dulaney, and I will see you tomorrow if the Lord is willing.

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