Worship Without Words

“Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker”

Psalm 95:6

What if you couldn't use your lips to worship Jesus? How would you do it? Would it even be possible? It was Max Lucado penned the words, “Worship is the thank you that cannot be silenced.” There is nothing like getting together with other believers and worshipping Jesus, yet church shouldn’t be a place we go as much as it is a life we live. Worship after all isn’t an allotted time set aside for God, worship is a lifestyle, a way of life. Actually, worship is to be our life.

I appreciate what singer-song writer and best selling author Matt Redman said regarding worship when he wrote, “In the end, worship can never be a performance, something you’re pretending or putting on. It’s got to be an overflow of your heart. Worship is about getting personal with God, drawing close to God.” That is so well put, amen! Worship as a lifestyle is drawing close to God each living in constant and personal communion with Him. Living a life of worship is more than singing praise songs at church. Living a life of worship is listening to God through His Word and and following His leading each and every day of our lives in everything He calls us to do by the power His spirit provides. It’s an adventure!

Does your life feel like an adventure with Jesus? Do you take time each day to hear Him by studying His Word and praying to Him discussing with Jesus the desires He has for you that day. The reason I ask is because that is what worship really is. Did you know there are things God wants you to see today, loved one? Did you know there are places God wants you to go today? Are you aware there are people He wants you to speak and to listen too, to pray with and to share in the love of Christ? He does! So, by all means worship God with your lips today but don’t let it end there. Worship Him in everything you do knowing that when worship with more than just our lips, worship becomes the life the Lord has always wanted for us.

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.”

Deuteronomy 6:5


Michael Osthimer
