So what is worship really? Well before we go there i just want you to read a few verses and really think about them for a moment:
Psalm 139:13
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.

Genesis 1:1
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Luke 12:7
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

God created us. He created the world and not only the world but the entire universe and everything in it. He know our hearts, he knows our every thought. He has seen every tear we have ever cried and he Loves us more then we could ever comprehend. So now back to worship, to worship means to attribute worth to something or someone. God doesn't really need us to tell him that he is worthy; he is whether we choose to attribute that worth to him or not, but when you think of the amazing things that our Lord has done, of his ultimate sacrafice, of how much he loves us and all the things that are in store for those that love him how could we not worship him? We are so unworthy of his love and he is more than worthy of our complete adoration. Worship isn't a style of music or an act you put on for the people around you. Music is a wonderful way to express to God how much you love him, but thats not all it is. Worship should be a lifestyle... everything we do should point to God and attribute worth to him. Every year i go to this conference called Acquire the Fire and every year it amazes me to see hundreds of kids lost in worship and i say lost in the sense of them being completely oblivious to the people around them, not caring what anyone thinks, getting down on their knees, raising their hands, closing their eyes, and literally crying out to God. Our generation is suffering, dragged into the church is on sunday mentality we're falling away from the truth and I can't help but wonder what would change if we simply lived a life of worship. If on sundays we sang along and truly meant it...and then didn't stop. If we listened to the Holy Spirits calling and reached out to those around us and loved them as Christ loves us. We can worship God in everything we do and thats how we should try to live... With a true heart of worship

  1. A model wearing the Burberry outlet collection at once — all nine of the burberry scarf silk caftans in a rainbow of armani sunglasses, one on top of another — circled round and round the gucci sunglasses outlet. Each time she came around, the Paul smith designer and an assistant, both in white nurses' Moncler jackets, peeled off a layer and put Moncler coats onto another model, right in the middle of the coats & jackets.The models wore a white chiffon over their Woolrich to protect the beautiful bias-cut dresses in ruby, North Sails, citrus, mint and buff silk from Paul smith outlet.At the end of the show, the Paul smith bag was covered in crimson kisses.
