A Worshipful Heart

“The sacredness of times and places, a half-light necessary to the education of the race, passed away before the full sun of spiritual worship.”

Tozer, The Pursuit of God

We no longer have to observe holy days or years. We are not bound to worshiping at a temple. When Christ came, He replaced the old. Now we can worship God anywhere, when we worship in spirit and in truth (John 4:21-23).

The ordinary becomes significant and the commonplace purposeful. Though many try to separate the spiritual and the every day, they are intertwined. A worshipful heart transforms every day tasks into ministry. Waking up early, jotting down class notes, driving on back roads, and working long hours can all be offered as acts of worship.

“It is not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular; it is why he does it. The motive is everything. Let a man sanctify the Lord God in his heart and he can thereafter do no common act.”

Tozer, The Pursuit of God
