Heart Worship

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to Him. For He [God] laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths. Psalms 24:1-2 (NLT).

Do you know what the primary reason God created humankind (male and female)?  TO WORSHIP GOD.  God made people (man and woman) in His own image and likeness for His glory to worship Him (Isaiah 43:7).  Worship is not something you “do” on Sunday.  Worship is love and a lifestyle of loving God with all our hearts and caring and serving others (Leviticus 19:18, Deuteronomy 6:4-6 and Matthew 22:34-40; Mark 12:30 and Luke 10:27).  Moreover, worship is also a commitment to holy living (Psalm 15, Psalm 29:1-2 and Matthew 5:48).  In all He does, God is holy, perfect, and blameless. Just as God is holy, so we are also to be holy (Leviticus 19:1; 1 Peter 1:15-16). Most important, worship is a humble, wholehearted surrender and trust in God. Matthew 6:33 states to seek the Kingdom of God above all else because God owns everything (Psalm 24:1-2).
