Worship Begins in the presence of God

“We do not worship God in order to get Him to give us something but we worship in a way that pleases Him when we see what He has already done”  

Luke 17:15-16 And one of them when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at His feet.


Sometimes we think that the road to our blessing runs through a place we call “worship”. But true worship never is concerned with visiting the place called religion. In fact in the story from Luke’s Gospel about ten lepers, the only one who came back to worship Jesus was the one who chose not to go to the priest.

We need to lose the idea entirely that we can produce something called worship. True worship always begins in heaven and comes down to us when we suddenly realize what God has already given. We may try to show everyone around us what seems to be worship, but Jesus knows the truth. He is waiting for us to finally see what He has done, turn back, give God the glory and worship at His feet!
