God is seeking worshippers. These must worship Him in spirit and in truth, John 4:23.
Those are the kind of folks God is seeking. He wants them to be genuine, honest, and sincere in their worship of Him. Why? I think He wants worshippers like this for two reasons:
If you’re God, you wouldn’t want fake worshippers! Since God is truth, He doesn’t want just lip-service or insincere expressions. He desires folks who really mean it when it comes to honoring Him, loving Him and glorifying Him.
He is worthy of our worship because both in His character and in what He has accomplished for us, He is amazing!
So then, I think this is why Paul exhorts us to live as living sacrifices for God (Rom. 12:1-2), because as we genuinely seek to honor Jesus, we start to walk more in step with Him and be in tune with the desires of His heart, and we start to discern what’s pleasing to the Father.
Which brings me back full circle to Martha, Mary, and Lazarus. They threw a dinner party to celebrate Jesus and what He had done for them (John 12). Martha served, Lazarus was there at the table with Jesus, and Mary brought perfume with which she anointed His feet. And, then, she washed His feet with her hair. Her hair! Such a powerful moment. Possibly, it was also an uncomfortable moment for those around them. All three were ways of worshipping, and, none of them were singing! We can worship in a multitude of ways and it can vary, even with the season that we’re in or the time of day. Let us honor Jesus for what He has done for us and for who He is. Let us bring our worship. Let us be the ones the Father is seeking to worship Him!
