Worshiping the One True God

To worship is to attribute supreme worth, honor, and glory to someone or something.

Matthew 4:10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”

When Jesus was tempted to worship Satan in exchange for earthly power and glory, He responded by quoting Deuteronomy 6:13. This verse helps anchor our worship as well.

Worship Defined

To worship is to attribute supreme worth, honor, and glory to someone or something.

It signals our deepest allegiance and shapes our priorities. Worship is the human heart’s ultimate posture.

God Alone is Worthy

Because He alone is the infinite, perfect Creator deserving total allegiance, God commands that we worship and serve Him exclusively.

No idol compares to the true God.

Unfortunately, we easily grant “functional worship” status to things like wealth, success, relationships, or popularity by allowing them to rule our hearts and shape our desires.

Our Life’s Throne

Take an honest inventory – what occupies your thoughts and passions?

What do you esteem and rely on above all else?

Ask God to reveal anything commanding your heart’s worship other than Himself.

Re-centering Our Worship

By God’s grace, dethrone false gods and continually re-center your worship on the true God.

He created us for relationship with Himself. As our Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer, only He is worthy of life’s supreme worship.

Capture My Heart Afresh

Lord, reveal any area where my adoration has shifted from You to lesser things. Forgive me for functionally worshiping the temporal rather than eternal. Recapture my heart and realign my life so You alone are central. You created me to worship You.
