Worship That Ministers to God
We know that God desires “true worshipers” and Lev. 3:41 captures a true combination when Jeremiah urges, “Let us lift up our hearts and our hands to God in heaven…” We truly want to worship God in a way that ministers to him and the Scriptures clearly show us numerous ways which are acceptable to him. As the loving spontaneity of children delights their earthly father, so our Heavenly Father delights in the spontaneous praising and worshipping of his children. A worshiping example is “Praise the Lord. Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise in the assembly of the saints. Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let the people of Zion be glad in their King. Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with tambourine and harp. FOR THE LORD TAKES DELIGHT IN HIS PEOPLE; he crowns the humble with salvation (Ps. 149:1-4).
