3 Ingredients For Intentional Worship

myklove.nexisit.net/crowdhub_share_v2/2/154489

For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.”

(John 4:24, NLT)

If you’ve been a Christian for any length of time, you’ve likely come to understand that worship is far more than singing a pre-selected set of songs on Sunday morning. Worship is the very thing that fuels our days. Everything can be an act of worship. However, there are three key ingredients to living a life of intentional worship.

1. Adoration  

True worship begins with adoration, or praise and thanksgiving, from a heart that genuinely magnifies the Lord. Adoration is devotion out of love that is overwhelmed by His beauty, strength, and majesty. It is love in response to the One who first loved us (Romans 5:8). This can manifest itself in a variety of ways—through song, through speech, and prayer. And that leads us to our second ingredient…

2. Prayer

The Bible compares prayer to incense offered up in worship. When we pray, we pour our hearts out to Christ as a fragrant offering. We ask for forgiveness and intercede for others. We ask for direction and clarity, comfort, healing and peace. We also listen for His response. 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 reminds us, “Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”

3. Obedience

The final component for living a life of intentional worship can be challenging. In today’s society, obedience to God’s Word is often regarded as old-fashioned, uncool and unimportant. Regardless, God values our obedience and submission more than anything else we offer Him. It is so important, my dear friends, to not only read the Bible but to live out its truth in loving obedience every day. James 1:22 says, “But don’t just listen to God’s Word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.” Obedience to His voice is better than any sacrifice we can offer.

The Highest Law is 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

Understand the desire to obey Yeshua, comes first!

(it is my intention to relieve the negative thoughts/criticism that come with the word obedience)

There is a confusion of what Christ expects of us & what others (like a Pastor, etc) tells us, Yeshua expects of us!

This is why guidance from the Holy Spirit directly to you is vital!

The more time we spend personally, individually, just basking in His Presence (that closer-relationship stuff), we begin to trust the Holy Spirit’s guidance.

We are no longer obeying words in a book, we obey the Living God, through our established trust with the Holy Spirit.

Yeshua left so we could have this!

John 16:7

This very vital, modern day direction!

He is called The Guide

Ellicott’s Commentary for English Readers

(13) Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come.–Comp. Note on John 14:17.

He will guide you into all truth.–Better, . . . into all the truth. The words do not mean that the Holy Spirit will fully guide them into truth, but that He will be their guide into the fulness of truth. The word rendered “guide,” occurs again in Matthew 15:14; Luke 6:39; Revelation 7:17; and metaphorically, as here, in Acts 8:31. A comparison of these passages will show that its meaning is “to point out the way,” “to lead one on his way.” The fulness of truth is for the disciples an unknown territory. They are spiritually as blind men, feeling after the truth, but not able to see it. The Spirit of Truth will take them by the hand, and, step by step, as they have strength to follow, will guide them into the territory, and unfold to them the treasures it contains. The promise has a special meaning for the disciples to whom it was spoken; but it holds good for every disciple who seeks to know the truth. We may pray,–without doubt that the prayer is in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and without doubt that it will be answered–

a higher than human guidance Matthew 13:52

We must again be on our guard against drawing limits which Christ has not drawn.

(spelling mistakes in quotes above, direct copy/paste from site)

The Holy Spirit frees us from boundaries, laws, rules, regulation/tradition, we have made for ourselves! (humanity)

We become free of the law, the guilt & shame, law induces.

Through the Holy Spirit, total reliance on Him, that obedience becomes 2nd nature, done without thought, subconsciously! 😀

Programmed by the Holy Spirit! 😀

It is a step-by-step process, tailored for you personally by Elohim Himself, by The Father of Creation Himself! 😀

May you experience the very intimate guidance of the Holy Spirit, in Yeshua’s holy name, amen. 😀

That is one thing i MISS about Chicago!!!!! THE WORSHIP!

One good thing about having TOO MANY PEOPLE in the church, when worship comes in, it is TOTALLY AWESOME!

Miss you New Life Covenant of Chicago! Central Campus!

It’s easier to dance for the Lord in such a crowd! Its where i learned (on my own! because I DO NOT LIKE IT when others FORCE a person to demonstrate in the Lord! Let people do it in their own way and time! NEVER! EVER! PUT YOUR HANDS ON A PERSON DURING WORSHIP! (unless its for security reasons)

i apologize for this happened to me personally-during prayer! of all things! To put my hands up HIGHER?! People like this SERIOUSLY have control issues and can cause SERIOUS SPIRITUAL DAMAGE!)

Its where i learned to be as exuberant in my worship today! In my own time, in MY WAY!

I do feel sorry for those who have NEVER experienced the HIGH of praising the Lord! 😀

But there is NO WAY i would force someone to behave like me, or look down on them for not…

For i USE TO BE one of them!

Thought all Christians were crazy, fanatical…over time i envied them though-i ALWAYS thought why DON’T WE have joy, ease and happiness in the Lord LIKE THAT!

Some are faking it, for sure, i intensely watched the ones who didn’t.

TY YESHUA! For NOW! i am one of them! 😀

UNTIL IT HAPPENS TO YOU!

Having your life saved is NO LONGER just words…

My life is LITERALLY BETTER with Yeshua in it.

I first had to go into the darkest days of my life, somewhere i thought i would NEVER be!

and Yeshua came to me!

Just like many gospel songs say, “When NO ONE ELSE WAS AROUND!” Yeshua came to me and took away my blackest night.

Doesn’t mean darkness doesn’t descend today, in fact i’ve had worse than that day…except this time…! 😀

I had Yeshua with me…”through it all!” (another common thing heard in Gospel Music)

I also feel sorry for those who only feel the exuberance of the Lord at Church, only amongst others or only when they hear a song…

but i remember when…

I never felt it…

Like i do today…

Ty Yeshua for listening. 😀

 

time for the Lord tag 2017

I CANNOT BE SILENT! 😀 (another song true to my life today!)
