"In the end, worship can never be a performance, something you're pretending or putting on. It's got to be an overflow of your heart..... Worship is about getting personal with God, drawing close to God." Matt Redman
It's not about legalism, it's about having a life so full of gratitude for who God is and what He has done, that you must respond. I don't think God cares how long my list of thanks is, how high I raise my hands, or how loud I sing if I don't do my best to treat people the way He wants them to be treated, to get out of my comfort zone, to let go of selfishness, to do the difficult things that I don't want to do... that is a worshipFULL life.
I don't have it all together.
I snap at people when I shouldn't, I get impatient in grocery store lines, I roll my eyes at things I overhear. But I'm learning. I want to change.
And by His grace, as He fills me with more of Himself, the transformation begins.
