What is Worship? (with bonus playlist)
Worshipping God is the purpose for which we were created. God is worthy of all praise, and there is nothing of greater importance than having our hearts turned to him in worship.
“For when we cease to worship God, we do not worship nothing, we worship anything.” –Jonathan Edwards
Life is busy, and it’s easy to lose focus on what’s most important. When you start to feel pulled in many directions and when your spirit is not at rest, it’s helpful to do is a self-analysis of where you are placing your primary affections. If God is not first in your life, what is it that has become an idol? Even good things can become idols.
“Worship is pulling our affections off our idols and putting them on God.” -Timothy Keller
Worship is an attitude of the heart, and it can express itself in many ways. Music can be a powerful expression of worship. I can’t wait to hear the music in heaven. It’s going to be incredible! What a sweet joy it is to let go of everything else and to worship God through song. These are the times when heaven seems to come closest to earth when our hearts are set upon God and our love for him.
“The best, most beautiful, and most perfect way that we have of expressing a sweet concord of mind to each other is by music.” -Jonathan Edwards
Your Sabbath rest needs to include worship, time that’s set apart for God, as you soak in the goodness of who he is. Whether you are at church, singing along during the worship portion, or at home, listening to music that honors God, these are sacred times. Worship God, and he will bring renewal to your spirit.
Below, you will find a playlist of some beautiful worship songs.

I believe that God had a hand in bringing you here to read this, and I trust that he will continue the excellent work that he has started in all of us. God bless you.
“I appeal to you, therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” –Romans 12:1-2
