Worship ... and Serve
Then Jesus said to him, "Away with you, Satan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.'"
In his book Called to Worship, Vernon Whaley writes, "True worship embraces love for the people of God -- demonstrated through service .... Our worship of God cannot be isolated from the real world or trapped inside the walls of our 'secret place.' It must impact us to reach out to and at times confront the culture around us."
In the New Testament the Pharisees knew much about God and His Law, but they didn’t have compassion for the people around them. When the Lord Jesus healed someone on the Sabbath, the Pharisees were critical. But true worshippers exhibit a God-like behavior that touches the lives of others in service. When we truly worship God, we're transformed into His likeness and become people who reach out to others and serve them. When we enter into the needs of other people and begin to minister to them, we recapture the sense of the wonder of who God is.
Sing a song of praise to the Lord today. Find a way to serve God and touch the lives of those around you.
When God's people turn their hearts to biblical worship, there will be social change. And with that change comes ethical and moral accountability.
