ADONAI by Elijah Oyelade
(Lyrics at bottom of post)

Beloved friends, what should be our proper response to God’s marvelous mercies? I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God to be his sacred, living sacrifices. And live in holiness, experiencing all that delights his heart. For this becomes your genuine expression of worship.

Romans 12:1 (TPT)

WHAT IS WORSHIP?

You’ve probably often wondered what worship truly is right? Oxford dictionary defines worship as a feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity. Brilliant definition isn’t it? Let’s take a walk through the word in Romans 12:1, so we can understand what it says in addition to the above definition, on how to worship

HOW TO WORSHIP

SURRENDER YOURSELF

This without inhibition is the first step in the art of worship. Total surrender of your being- your spirit, soul and body. Reserve nothing for yourself or any other. Hold nothing back. You can’t be committed to worship and have weights pulling you down and away from your altar. Drop the weight at the foot of Jesus and set yourself loose.

BE GOD’S SACRED TEMPLE

Be set apart for God alone. You must stand holy before His throne. There should be no other allegiance but to God. You can’t serve two masters. You must be God’s alone.

Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.

1 Corinthians 3:16-17

For us to worship we must plead the blood to stand spotless before His throne. Our God is holy and those who worship must worship in spirit and in truth.

BE THE LIVING SACRIFICE

when I hears the word ‘SACRIFICE’, the first picture that comes to mind is an illustration from the childhood– my book of bible stories that’s been etched in my spirit. The Israelites often had animals slaughtered on an altar with the smoke from its burning rising up to heaven. This smoke, the word made us understand, when accepted is a pleasing aroma, a sweet smelling savor. Praise God for Jesus, the lamb that was slain once and for all, offered unto God as a sweet fragrance and same Jesus now in us has transformed us into a living and walking sacrifice, consistently diffusing the fragrance of the knowledge of God.

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?

2 Corinthians 2:14-16

God wants us to diffuse the knowledge of God always. It an expression of worship. We need to have Jesus in our lives for us to be a walking incense, a living sacrifice.

LIVE IN HOLINESS

There is no doubt, God cannot behold iniquity. If you want to enter his presence in worship or connect to him as a living sacrifice, you must live a life of holiness. Worship ushers us into God presence when we lead holy lives. It is very possible with the help of the Holyspirit to live holy for God. There is no worship without holiness.

Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:

Hebrews 12:14

EXPERIENCE GOD’S HEART DELIGHT

Be like King David, a man after God’s heart. Seek to please the Lord in everything. Observe to do his bid at all time. Do not be like King Saul who sought to serve God the way he pleased and not in obedience.

Samuel said,
“Has the Lord as much delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices
As in obeying the voice of the Lord?
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
And to heed than the fat of rams.

1 Samuel 15:22

Finally, use your all in worship. Your voice, your intellect every power he has gifted you with. Sing graciously to the king always. He is ADONAI
