Back To The Heart Of Worship

An Advent to Remember:  Back To The Heart of Jesus

A new meaning of Worship has been bestowed upon me after learning to rest in Jesus for everyday life.  When you have practiced entering God’s rest and are seeing life through God’s perspective, you will be able to wholeheartedly worship our Heavenly Father the way He deserves.  Your heart, mind, and soul will be full of peace, gratitude, love, and your life will be full of praise that we will want to lay at the feet of Jesus to honor and bring Him glory.

When you have taken quality time to spend with Jesus, your desires, motives, and perspective begin to change.   Stepping into this new mindset will elevate you to another level of genuine worship that is not rushed or out of haste.  You will begin to experience intimacy with Jesus that will be fueled by a strong desire to learn from Him, talk to Him, walk with Him, and get closer to Him wholeheartedly.


The heart of worship begins with the acknowledgment of God’s love, sacrifice, and blessings.  By giving Him thanksgiving and praise in all things, your life will have a new meaning of living for the King.   In a world that is busy and constantly moving, especially during Christmas, take time to slow down this season. Begin practicing resting in Jesus and worshipping the Savior of the world.  You will begin to see the true meaning of Christmas that will leave a lasting impression on your mind, heart, and soul.

1 Chronicles 16:23-31 NIV
23 Sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day. 
24 Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. 
25 For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. 
26 For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens. 
27 Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his dwelling place. 
28 Ascribe to the LORD, all you families of nations, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. 
29 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering and come before him.
Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness. 
30 Tremble before him, all the earth! The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved. 
31 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, “The
LORD reigns!”

Personal Reflection

How can you apply today’s devotion to this Christmas season?
