Worship

Posted 12/9/2015

Heb 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

The Greek interpreted as "have" is elsewhere translated as "hold", or "hold fast", or to "keep". The writer is saying since we are members of a kingdom that cannot be shaken or done away with; an eternal kingdom, we are to hold fast to Grace so we can serve (worship) God as we ought to.

Many have made Grace into an acronym, saying Grace stands for God's riches (or redemption) at Christ's expense. Others say it means "unmerited favor". These definitions lose something in the translation.

But the Biblical definition of Grace must not be lost by the one who believes, and who has been transferred from the kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of Light. Titus wonderfully defines Grace and its' purpose.

Tit 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 
12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

We are told n Hebrews 12:28, since we are now citizens of the Kingdom of Light, we are to hold on to our resolve to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts. As children of the Kingdom, we are to hold fast to the principles of sobriety, righteousness, and godliness so our lives will be a reflection of worship before God.

Worship is NOT the music portion of the service. Worship is an attitude of service to God. Worship is how you conduct yourself in your daily affairs, how you represent the Christian life to others. Worship is all about how you live your Christian life. Jesus said that those who worship God will worship Him in Spirit (yielding to the guidance of the Holy Spirit daily) and in Truth (without hypocrisy).

Those who are led by the Spirit are the sons of God. A true worshipper will be all about furthering the Kingdom of God here on this earth in obedience to the One Who said "Go ye".
