Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.
This chapter is honestly one of my favorite chapters in A Call to Die. It is so easy to confuse “worship” with just singing songs in church on Sunday. Worship is a lifestyle. Every single day we have the opportunity to draw closer to Jesus and radiate His love. Although worshipping Jesus through songs in church is definitely important, we often don’t truly “worship” Him. I have caught myself missing truly worshipping God because I am nervous that my voice doesn’t sound too good to those around me or that I will look silly. It makes me pretty sad to realize that even in church we compare ourselves to others and care about how we look to those around us when we are supposed to be there to worship Jesus! This Sunday I am going to sing with my entire heart (even if my voice isn’t that great) and I am going to love Jesus with my entire being. I am going to worship Him in the hallways of my school too. I arrive at school pretty early so I normally listen to praise and worship songs on my iPod. Then in class the songs are stuck in my head and I literally praise Jesus all day in my head! We also praise Jesus through our actions, how we treat people and point others to Him.
The point of true worship is to be authentic. Worship Jesus alone. Radiate His love today.
