There are various life experiences that can compel a person to seek God. A feeling of being overwhelmed by life, an emptiness that nothing else can fill, or possibly arriving at the end of oneself are all examples. But whatever the reason you are seeking Him, there is a great promise to you. God said, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).
How do we seek him with all our heart? There are three ways to pursue God in worship. The first is in personal worship through prayer and Bible reading. Learning to pray, and allowing God to speak to us through His Holy Spirit, helps us develop a relationship with Him as we grow in understanding and wisdom.
Another way to worship God is in public worship. The word “church” means the assembly of people seeking God together. Jesus made a promise, “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them” (Matthew 18:20). When we meet together for Sunday gatherings, small group meetings, and to serve in ministry with others, we can trust God is present.
Worship is also a lifestyle we practice every day. It is not limited to just one special day of the week or to a time of meditation but rather refined through our daily routines, hobbies, and our responsibilities with family and work/school. “Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him” (Colossians 3:17).
Are you growing in your relationship with God through all three methods of worship? We encourage you to take a closer look and hope to see you each week as we seek God together.
