Read John 4:5-14. Where do you go to worship God? The Salvation Army Hall? A church? A cathedral? Have you ever thought about worshipping God in your home? At your place of work? In the supermarket queue? In the park?
As a Samaritan, the woman Jesus met at the well thought God could only be worshipped on Mount Gerizim. The Jews on the other hand thought God could only be worshipped in Jerusalem. Jesus revealed the truth: God is not confined to a particular building or a specific setting. He can be found anywhere! So, we can worship anywhere!
Our worship is not dependent on a place or time. It depends on our attitude. We can work with an attitude of worship – working for God, whatever we do. We can clean dishes with an attitude of worship – doing it whilst aware of God’s presence with us. Any activity – if it has God at the centre – can be an act of worship.
Think It Over
Think about the following:
- What are your plans today? What can you do to ensure God is at the centre of them all, and that you are worshipping him throughout your day?
