We Were Made To Worship

Notice the title says “We Were Made to Worship.” Not “We Were Made To Worship God”. We were made to worship, period. The way you live feels in the blank. Each and every one of us were born with a desire inside of us to give something or someone praise.

Unfortunately, many of us fill this desire by worshiping things other than the One who created us. John 4:23-24 says “It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit… that’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship… those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves…”. It’s what you say, the way you act, and your love that reflects what’s in your heart – and your heart reflects who or what you live for.

If you’re a teenager, then you’ve probably caught yourself drooling over a guy/girl and craving to give in to peer pressure. Or maybe you’ve caught yourself raising your hands at a concert or a football game. We live for what we love. Are there any desires in your heart that you have subconsciously put before your Heavenly Father? If so, ask him to remove those and replace them with the desire to worship him only.

“The secret things in their hearts will be made known.
So they will bow down and worship God…”
~John 4:23-24

You were made by God. You were made for God. But are you living for him?
