One of the most unifying things for Christians is the fact that we gather to worship Jesus. We are to simply worship Christ in all things and in any situation, good or bad. That may sound simple, but please understand that there will be moments or seasons when praising Jesus will be somewhat difficult. However, we are still commanded to worship King Jesus because he is worthy to be praised.
At Shiloh Terrace we like to explain worship in three simple parts. These parts are Who we worship, How we worship, and how Often we are to worship.
WHO: God the Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, through the Holy Spirit. God is who we worship!
“And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” – Ephesians 5:20 NLT
“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort.” –2 Corinthians 1:3 NLT
HOW: Instruments, voices, and how we live our lives is how we are to worship Jesus.
“Let the godly sing for joy to the Lord; it is fitting for the pure to praise him. Praise the Lord with melodies on the lyre; make music for him on the ten-stringed harp. Sing a new song of praise to him; play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy.” –Psalms 33:1-3 NLT
OFTEN: Always, in all things we are to worship. All our thoughts, our actions, and lifestyle is to signify a life that belongs to Christ.
“And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” –Philippians 4:8 NLT
Take a few minutes to gather and silence yourself while fixing your mind on Christ.
First minute – Think about who He is and what He has done in your life.
Second minute – Read Psalm 150 and notice how many times the author says “praise Him.”
Third Minute – Write down what you want to praise God for.
