Marcy Riley - Living for Jesus
Worship time
Worshipping God brings us closer to him. It is through worship that we are able to connect with him and feel his presence. It is through worship that we are able to say that we understand what God wants from us. It is through worship that we are able to fully understand that man is nothing but clay and that God is the Potter; molding us into who he wants us to be. It is through worship that we learn to live, laugh, love and stay in the presence of God.
To worship is to spend time adoring and honoring the Lord. Worshipping allows you one on one time with the creator where you feel his presence more than ever.
Think on these things:
1. Repentance
Where there is no repentance, there may be an emotional experience, but it’s not worship!  Worship does not become worship until it changes the way we live!
2. Intellectual
We are called to worship the Lord with our minds by renewing them and fixing them on him. (Colossians 3:1–2)
3. Intentional
No one accidentally follows Christ. If we are going to worship him, it will be done purposefully!

4. Relational
Worship affects every relationship we have. It is impossible to be a fully devoted worshiper of Christ while being a jerk to your wife or trying to take advantage of the opposite sex.
5. Financial
Until following Christ has affected our finances in a sacrificial way, chances are, we are not followers of Christ with our whole heart. Would you like to see the primary object of your worship? Look at how you spend your money, “for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21).
6. Unconditional
Worship is consistent, 24/7, not situational or just when I feel good or God is giving me all that I want. If we worship only when things are good then we do not worship God, we worship a genie!
7. Emotional
Worship is overwhelming when we realize that Jesus has rescued us while we were deeply entrenched in sin, when we realize how helpless we are and how incredible he is. (The reality of Romans 5:8 blows me away!)
