Worship Is The Very Core Of Our Being

Worship is the very core of our being. It is also one of the specifically mentioned reasons that we were created. But what is it to truly worship? It is so much more than just singing, or clapping, or crying. Before any of those things worship starts in our hearts, it is the core of our very soul. Worship isn't as much an action, as a life style. True worship is when we come to the realization that we aren't living for us, but for the One who created us. When we look at it this way, worship changes from a mere action, and actually becomes what we are. We are worship. In all of us there is something that stirs to praise and revere something. And when the something that we are worshiping is our Almighty Creator, there is nothing more pleasing to Him. Every little action and choice we make is in some way a form of worship, and because of this it becomes our choice whether or not we will live a life of worship. It should be that everything we do is governed by the standard of whether or not it shows worship to the One that gave us life. It is so much more then 30 minutes of crying while listening to music! Raising our hands or clapping is worshiping, but beyond that, the way we are actually living, that is true worship. We have to come to the point of living a life no longer dedicated to our own goals dreams and desires, but instead bowing down in complete surrender and adoration to the One who deserves all worship and praise. After doing this, our life becomes more beautiful to Him then any song. Worship comes when we are laying on our face, giving everything we have over to the most high. Worship comes when in the middle of trials and hardships we turn to sing in joy to Him that deserves our all. Worship comes when we choose to live a life of purity and righteousness, contrary to the path the rest of the world would have us take. Worship comes when we place our whole life in the hands of our Creator, to do with us what He wills. Our whole goal then must be to devote our all to an existence that brings glory to the Creator of the heavens and the earth. Don't just worship Him, live to be worship to Him. May we ever seek to be worship to you Lord. Our defining moment is when we have come to our physical end we still choose to praise the never failing King of Majesty.

This was written by my son, Jace.  I thought it was too awesome to not share.


  1. This so good! It speaks volumes about the condition of his heart. We serve an awesome creator. You my friend have done your "job" and have done it well. Exposing him to his savior. Your son is living out loud for Jesus and I think that is AWESOME!!

  2. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL, and even more so knowing that it comes from a young man who knows such a truth well before most Believers have figured it out (if they ever do).

    Isn't it WONDERFUL when our young adults have chosen to live their lives in love and service to Our Lord & Savior? My heart is so burdened for the young adults that spent their growing up years attending church, but that never really understood what it means to LIVE for Jesus! Why is it that it is so difficult for young adults that are passionate about Jesus, to find other like-minded young adults. I know many young adults that are so lonely (even in their churches) because others don't understand their passion for the Lord. Oh. So. Sad.

    Keep writing, Jace. Keep sharing, Shonni. And ... keep raising up these beautiful children to love and serve Our Lord.

  5. Wow- that is awesome! And from your son! Wow- again!

  6. Wow, incredible!!! Your young man has more wisdom than most older adults I know. You must be very proud of him.
