A brief bit about worship – Worship can’t be confined to a set of dos and don’ts. Worship is the act of praising God, in whatever manner you choose to. Jesus says the most important commandment is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind” (Luke 10:27, ESV). These four categories (heart, soul, strength, and mind) are the most basic things that make us up. Everything can fit into one of these categories. Does it not then make sense that we should worship God with all four of these categories?
Devote yourself to studies and sharpening your mind as long as it is with the goal to serve God. That is worship.
Evangelize to others. Stay up late and have good conversations with people. That is worship.
Go work out and keep yourself fit, not to impress others, but to honor the body God has given you. That is worship.
Worship is so much more than singing along with worship songs and maybe raising your hands. Allow yourself to experience God in every facet of your life. That is my challenge to myself for the week: praising God in the midst of my homework, in the midst of playing intramurals, in the midst of sitting in class. God deserves it.
