WORSHIP

ROSS BARNETT

Matthew 6:24

No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

“Everything we do is worship to something.

Take a moment and think about that statement. Do you agree or disagree? Why or why not? Sit with this thought for a moment. If this is true, what is it that you worship most?

Worship is not just worship music or the three songs you sing before the sermon at church. Worship can be defined as adoration and attention given to something or someone. But worship is more than the attention we direct toward God. In fact, there are a lot of ways we express our worship, and there are a lot of competing recipients of our attention and adoration.

In this passage in Matthew, Jesus makes it clear that we can only serve one master. However, He gives us the choice of whom we are going to serve and worship. This world has only so much to offer, but Christ wants so badly to give you more than you could ever imagine. In order to receive the gifts He has for you, you must be willing to let go of your pursuit of the things of this world. Worship is our way of expressing the choice we make when asked the question, “Whom will you serve?”

QUESTION 1. Make a list of how you spend both your time and your resources, what would appear to be your number one priority?
QUESTION 2. How can you show God your adoration for him today?
CHALLENGE: Based on your list you created in question 1. Figure out how you can adjust this list today to reflect your desire to worship God in all you do
