“Early the next morning Abraham got up and saddled his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about.”
Abraham had a very strong and deeply rooted love and fear for God. His devotion to God was personal; it was single-minded; it was absolute. Consequently, his response to God here was instant and total. ‘Early the next morning’ he got up and saddled his donkey, because his God, whom he loved and was devoted to, had told him to do something for Him. This is what genuine worship is all about.
Let me say this: Your worship is an accurate measure of your love and fear for God. It shows how devoted you really are to God; how much He means to you. I’d like you to take note of that. Through worship you show how devoted you are to God; how much you love Him; what He means to you.
Worship is a response that demonstrates love. It’s a means of showing love; of making a statement to God. Genuine worship is the totality of your being saying “I love You” to God. God reads it in unambiguous terms.
You know, in any relationship, there’s always something the other person will do and instantly you know that they love you. That’s the same way it is with worship: it shows how devoted you really are to God.
