Worship; the practice of beholding His glory

Number 4 – Worship; the practice of beholding His glory

2 Corinthians 3:18 ‘We all, with unveiled faces, behold the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree to another.’ The Apostle here is describing a person being transformed into the image of God while they are brooding the glory of God.

The principle is simple but powerful; I become more like Him to the degree that I worship Him. Worship is more than attending a church service. It is the gaze of a soul on the greatness and glory of God. If you’re struggling with any kind of addiction or bad habit, ask yourself, ‘how did I get hooked on this?’ Here’s your answer; you made an idol of this thing! You set your affections on this thing. You worshipped your way into this idol. So, how do you get out? You get out the same way you got in, by worshipping your way out! Whatever or whomever you worship becomes your God. Worshipping God in spirit and in truth will purify your heart, and continuous worship will keep your heart pure. Isaiah saw the glory of God in a vision. Faith beholds the glory of God in worship, and as we behold the glory of God we are changed into His likeness. So let me encourage you to renew and rededicate yourself to God today through the anointed sphere of worship. Purity of heart comes from pursuing His presence.

God Bless
