Have you ever thought about how at church many services start with two songs and end with two, but sometimes it feels like you’re just going through the motions? Today our campers learned a little bit more about why we sing and what purpose it serves in our bible study.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. – Colossians 3:16

Before defining worship, let’s explore what it is not. Worship is not about you. It isn’t making sure you’re in pitch or sound the best in the room. It is not just singing the words or staring blankly at the screen.

Worship is solely about reflecting the glory back to God and praising Him for being our EVERYTHING, the one from whom ALL blessings flow. Because of the sacrifice of Christ, we are not required to worship God but we are empowered with such a joy that the light of the world is with us and we should desire to praise Him! Because of his actions, every single person on this earth has something to sing about. Regardless of the situations that you find yourself in, they don’t determine the love God has for you! One thing that proves God loves us is that He sent His only son as the perfect sacrifice to atone for our sins.

So I urge you to focus on how and why you are worshiping next time – remember its not about you or how good the band is playing, it about praising the King of all Kings! Rejoice for He gives us the breath of life and in return we get to worship Him!
