15 Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. 1 Peter 3:15(a) NLT
Every single day you worship.
Maybe you aren’t worshipping God but you are worshipping something or someone.
Would you like proof?
At it’s core, worship is ascribing value or worth to someone or something. The old English word for worship is “worthship” which indicates that something has worth. I argue that everyday, whether it’s in the way you spend your money and/or your time, the way you talk up latest menu item at a restaurant, or the way you brag about yourself or someone else, you have just worshipped.
The verse above starts off by saying “instead”… instead of what?
14 But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats.
Worry and fear. These are two things of which we all are guilty.
Instead of worrying we MUST worship. We need to refocus our attention back to worship, giving value or worth to God, instead of sacrificing our time and hearts on the altar of worry.
You ARE a worshipper. So, as a worshipper I admonish you to quit giving your worship to that which doesn’t deserve it and return your worship to the only One WORTHY of your worship.
