The third component of true worship is a commitment to learning the way of the Lord.True worshippers do this because they always want to please God. This is a crucial part of true worship. 

Read the Bible to know His ways and follow His precepts. Observe your God-ordained pastor who worships God actively and model after him or her. Always remember that God wants reverence; He hates iniquity and this knowledge prevents you from toying with holy things. Read the Bible to learn the ways of the Lord, not just because your pastor may ask you. Consistent Bible study shows that you honour God and what He says is important to you. God is a jealous God and He doesn’t joke with His honour. Learn what moves Him. When you are committed to finding out what pleases God, how He wants you to order your life and you align with His will, you are already a true worshipper. When such people sing or speak words in worship, their worship is acceptable. Indeed, the Holy Ghost takes over their lives and their worship.

God was committed to Aaron because he obeyed His instruction not to mourn or cry for his two sons that died before the Lord.  Are you as submitted to the law of God as that? When the Bible says “flee fornication”, do you obey or you tell yourself you are not fornicating when in fact you do other evils —deceiving yourself that you are not having sex? If the latter describes you, you are clearly not a worshipper.


PRAYER: Lord, search me and test my heart. Deliver me from secret sins and lead me in the way everlasting in Jesus’ name.
