Humility Is Part of Worship

00:00

Description

So we must be a careful evaluator of our efforts so that we can worship with a reasonable humility. Pride does not become worship.

Only a wife can tell her husband what is meaningful to her; the husband cannot tell that to the wife. In the same way, only God can tell us what is a meaningful activity that he would consider an act of worship. It is not up to us, but to him to tell us. Paul the Apostle told us what God wanted in Romans 12. Offering our body in service by using a spiritual gift is a living sacrifice to God.

I urge you therefore, brethren, by the tender mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.

 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

 3 For through the grace given to me I say to every man among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.

 (Romans 12:1-3)

What is fascinating is that as we offer ourselves to God, verse three tells us that we have to be reasonable and humble about our service to him which is also our spiritual work of priestly ministry. So we must be a careful evaluator of our efforts so that we can worship with a reasonable humility. Pride does not become worship.
