Worship

… For it’s not where we worship that counts, but how we worship – is our worship spiritual and real?  Do we have the Holy Spirit’s help?  For God is Spirit, and we may have his help to worship as we should.  The Father wants this kind of worship from us…   John 4:21-24  (TLB)

For it’s not where we worship
That our Father in heaven does count
Be not concerned where you fellowship
For that’s not what is paramount.

But how we worship is important
Is our worship spiritual and real?
In our practice are we consistent?
To God’s heart do we appeal?

Does the Holy Spirit help you?
For God is Spirit, you know?
Tell me, what will you do
That by His wisdom you grow?

We must have His help now
To worship the way we should
As through life’s drudge we plow
May we always do what’s good.

The Father truly wants this kind
Of worship from Christians today
If you try it you will find
It is the only way to pray!

How do you worship and who?
Does it happen in a building?
What effort have you put into
Making your heart open and yielding?

I find nature’s the perfect place
Where Jesus and I can talk
I don’t measure time and space
When with the Lord I walk.

Have you learned to be still
That you may hear His voice?
For to do our Father’s will
You must make a conscious choice.

Who will you follow and obey
This material world or the Lord?
Don’t listen to what doubters say
That mistake you can ill afford!

When time comes to an end
And final judgment has been made
Where will your eternal soul He send
To hell’s fire or heaven’s shade?
