More Than A Song

When you think of worship, what comes to mind?

For many, including myself, the first thing is probably music or singing. It’s a common way to express our worship, and it is certainly something often featured in the Bible, but it’s not the full picture.

Scripture speaks of worship as a response to God that goes far beyond the words we sing. We are called to worship not only with our voices, but with our lives.

“Therefore, brothers and sisters, in view of the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your true worship.” (Romans 12:1)

One great example of living worship is Daniel…

I’d love it if you’d join me at Gracefully Truthful to explore Daniel’s story and to look at what it can teach us about worship. Click here to read the full post.

I also thought I’d share this song, which I think captures the heart of true worship.

  1. I lived a lot of happy sins
    until I finally got to where
    I found the spot where joy begins,
    and learned that life should be a prayer
    that every day is raised to God
    like rising smoke from my cigar;
    ok, yeah, the simile’s flawed,
    but the thought’s not maybe far
    from burnt offerings of old,
    the fragrance precious in His nose,
    so I will guess, and be so bold
    to say God likes (I do suppose)
    a life lived as prayerful example
    while puffing on a Hav-A-Tampa.

  2. Lesley, thanks for this gentle reminder that worship is more than 10 – 20 minutes at the beginning of a Sunday morning service!

    May our daily lives faithfully sing His praises.

    Merry Christmas, dear friend …
