Day 46: Worship Thought – “Outside the Box”

Posted by undergroundchurch on April 15, 2011


Scriptural Nuggets Daily DevotionScriptural Nuggets Daily Devotion

If I say the word “worship”, usually the first thing to come to mind is singing and music. While singing and music can help one worship, they are only tools.

I once told someone that knew he sung off-key, “you sing like an angel”. I went on to point out that no place in scripture indicates angels sing. The are only ever recorded “Speaking”; even the angels around God’s throne only speak their worship.

Music, as many scholars point out, is a human method of worship, but it is not the only way to give worship to God.
Some other expressions can be found in scripture… Dancing, shouting, tearing garments, meditation, prophesying, gifts (offerings of sacrifice where you lose that which you give), dedication to the Lord (where you give something to the work of ministry) – neither of these last two include tithe.

Most methods of worship reflected the gift the worshiper had. So what gifts/talents did God give you?

Are you artistic, then paint a picture for the Lord – and don’t sell it for profit.

Is it writing, then write without seeking profit.

Whatever gift you have, find a way to use it for glorifying God without receiving anything in return, then look for new ways to worship the lord in everything and with every breath you have – Psalm 150
