Thoughts about worship / worship is beyond thoughts

To hear a talk about worship without expressing adoration to Jesus, misses the point. A Sunday program is a poor substitute for passionate, heart-driven adoration of God. Christian teaching “ascribes” glory to God but heart-felt worship actively adores Him.

Worship is to be lost in mind-blowing amazement at the love and reality of Jesus. I love to join with the heavenly hosts in adoration of the living, resurrected Jesus! Life looks different when you’re continually engaged with and in awe of Jesus.

Discipleship is to faithfully obey Jesus. Worship is to express adoration to Him and that fills me with awe and wonder! Expressing adoration directly to God is good for the heart. My heart is healed when the roads I take bring me closer to the living Jesus.

Worship is to allow yourself to be overcome and undone by the presence of Jesus. We can learn to live everyday with our attention and adoration focused on the living Jesus. We were created to worship God. To continually adore Jesus is to fulfil our purpose.

A formalized relationship has little intimacy. The same with formalized worship. Worship isn’t a “service” that’s done for you. It’s heart-felt adoration you give to God. Reading the Bible daily with an open heart, continually calls me to worship God. When we neglect to adore the risen Jesus, something else is on the throne in our life.

To openly and sincerely adore the living Jesus is to soar into unspeakable joy! A heart enraptured in worship understands Jesus much better than the mind can ever do. The more I spend time praising & thanking Jesus, the more His joy fills my heart!

When heart-felt love is expressed to God, worship has occurred. The highest form of worship is the open expression of sincere adoration to Jesus. Any praise that isn’t from the depths of the heart, falls short of genuine worship.

Heaven is about pure, continual, heart-felt worship. Will you be comfortable there?

My favorite Christmas phrase is: “O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.” Those who followed the Christmas Star expressed worship directly to the living Jesus.

Worship is a neglected form of prayer. It is to express adoration directly to God.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
