Live a Life of Worship

You were made to worship God! Worship is not just something that happens in a church service. Your daily life is an act of worship, as you live in a way that brings pleasure to God.

 You bring pleasure to God when you:

  • Love Him primarily
  • Trust Him completely
  • Serve Him wholeheartedly
  • Praise Him continually

 Every aspect of your life can be an expression of worship when you live in the realization and recognition of who God is and what He has done. Pastor Rick Warren writes in The Purpose-Driven Life:

“Every activity can be transformed into an act of worship when you do it for the praise, glory and pleasure of God.… How then is it possible to do everything for the glory of God? By doing everything as if you were doing it for Jesus and by carrying on a continual conversation with Him while you do it.”

 Worship can happen anytime and anywhere. In fact, God calls us to a life of worship.

 So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for Him.

— Romans 12:1 (The Message)

You are a new creation on a new journey. I hope that you will take these Next Steps we’ve discussed to heart. As you become a Christ follower by faith, you should do all you can to seek and learn about the life that is now yours through Christ.

 I hope that this information has been and will continue to be helpful to you as you start walking your new path. It isn’t meant to answer every single one of your questions. No one could ever do that. The truth is that we can’t tell you every twist and turn that your journey with God is going to take, because we don’t know. That’s the beauty of a relationship. You jump in and see where it leads. Faith is meant to be lived with others, so we hope you will join us as together at The Ridge as we continue to “KNOW Christ and GROW to be like Him.”

 No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him. — 1 Corinthians 2:9-10
