Worship the Savior

What does worship mean to you? Is your worship one of rote behavior? Does your worship come from a humble heart? Do you bow before the Savior, whether figuratively or literally? Have you spent time considering what it means to worship God?

Worship can mean different things to different people. However, there is one specific thing that must be included no matter what the tradition, actions, or thoughts. Humility. Without a humble heart, worship is all but impossible. We must admit God is greater than we are, if we are to worship him.

To worship God fully, we must humble ourselves before him. The wise men humbled themselves before the infant Messiah. They recognized Him for who He was. Perhaps we need to recognize Him for who He is. No, we absolutely need to recognize Him for who He is.

If we truly see Jesus as our Lord and Savior, see Him as the “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” as stated in Isaiah 9:6, we will humble ourselves before Him, just as the wise men did more than two-thousand years ago.

Maybe we should ask God to open our eyes so that we will see him for who he is, our Creator. Maybe we should present our gifts to him on bended knee as the wise men did. Maybe we should shed tears of disbelief, awe, and wonder as they did. Perhaps we should recommit ourselves to God as we start a new year.

I pray we all humble ourselves before God. I pray we see God for who he truly is. I pray each one of us will recommit ourselves to Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Recognize Jesus for who He is. Admit God is greater. Humble yourself before the Almighty God. Be in awe.

Matthew 2:11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
