    “Give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you.
    Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable.
    This is truly the way to worship him.” Romans 12:1-2 (NLT)

    I’ve talked to a lot of people who deliberately show up late to church just so they miss the worship. This is ironic considering God created you to worship. What we often miss is that true worship is far more than music and singing on Sunday morning. True worship is a lifestyle!

    Romans 12:1-2 says, “Give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.” (NLT)

    Do you know what that means? It means that worship is not about receiving it’s about giving. Giving your life to God.

    We miss the boat when we enter worship with a “what’s in it for me” mentality. It’s really about surrendering to God, his plan and purpose.

    Jesus said, “If people want to follow me, they must give up the things they want. They must be willing to give up their lives daily to follow me.” Luke 9:23 (NCV)

    This is what true worship looks like: if you’re in business, do business that honors God. If you’re a parent, be a parent that honors God. If you’re an employee, be an employee that honors God. It means we stop living life for ourselves and start living for God.

    When we choose to live this way we begin to discover who we really are. Our true selves are found in worship. It’s what we were created to do.

    If you want to get the most out of life you’re going to have to surrender to God. This is truly the way to worship him. It’s in surrendering that we find fulfillment and true happiness.

    Live on purpose,
