Day 11 Theme: Call to Worship

Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness - Psalm 29:2

God commands that we worship Him, giving Him the praise that is due His name. The law God gave through Moses forbids the people to worship any other god.  When Jesus replied to Satan as He was tempted in the wilderness He said, "For it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve." In His conversation at Jacob's well He said that the Father would have us to worship Him in spirit and in truth.

But from the beginning man has often come short of true worship.  He sometimes draws near with his words while his heart is far from God. He commits to rituals and traditions but fails to truly submit to the one living God.  True worship involves not only acknowledging the greatness of God but bowing before Him, submitting your mind and your will to Him.

The Apostle John wrote, "Little children, keep yourselves from idols."  May we today cast down any idol which we may have allowed into our heart, humble ourselves before our God Whose voice is powerful and full of majesty and give Him the glory due to His name.
