Worship Without Words or Music

And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: Joel 2:13 KJV

This is a scripture was spoken to Israel in a time when they had grown complacent, they had became familiar with God and they had allowed sin to fill their hearts. At a season where people where willing to show religion and not have a personal relationship with him, at a time when people would rather be seen religious (living the part) than be righteous. Israel would sin so that they would offer sacrifices everyday morning and evening with the focus of eating meet.

People would rent their clothes that is tear them apart as a sign to show their vindication and rejection over what was happening.

To ‘rend your heart’ means to tear apart your heart, living in a broken state, humbled state or a surrendered heart. We have to abase ourselves but not just that but have a reverence an awe for who He is.

May we have a reverence in our worship leading, in our service as an usher, cleaner, pastor, king or business man. May we live our lives in a broken state where God is the centre and all we desire to do is bless the Lord.

God is looking beyond the physical acts we do daily and in our service God is looking at the heart behind all that. Behind all we do may our lives be found broken, in awe and in reverence of who God is. May brokenness and surrendered hearts drive us to serve and bless God always and all times. Just like the story of the King in 2 Kings 6:30 (KJV)

“And it came to pass, when the king heard the words of the woman, that he rent his clothes; and he passed by upon the wall, and the people looked, and, behold, he had sackcloth within upon his flesh”.

When our clothes are rent may God see brokenness upon our lives. When the mask is removed may people see Christ, when our work is examined may people see the footprints that lead to the Christ. Behind the closed doors may reverence and awe for who God is grab ahold of our lives.

Let us Pray

“Father we Thank you that we are like this king that wore sackcloth underneath his majestic clothing… We thank u that our lives are a broken and humble enough for us to chase after you and live for you nothing to ourselves but to chase after you daily, in Jesus Name. Amen”

    I have a brother and he is determined that we are to Worship or rather set aside Saturday as the Sabbath. He says, it was changed by Constantine to Sun-day …a pagan day. I have always believed I set aside Sunday to come together as a body of believers to worship God. Everyday we are to worship him.

      Worship is a life style. We as believers should live each day as unto the Lord. Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath (Mark 2:27). Our daily lives should reflect our worship to Him, not just a specific day.
      Let us remember to worship Him in Spirit and Truth,

      So are Christmas and Easter pagan holidays. Look at easter it has paganism write all over it. Bunnies have more young than cats do. An eggs also represent birth. So it is a day the worshipped the fertility goddess. You will not find them in the Bible. You only see other Holy days to celebrate.

    Biblically and historically, your brother is correct.

    You’re right, worship is for everyday. But there is only one Sabbath day. It is a Moe’dim, one of God’s appointed times. Man cannot tamper with it.

    Yes we should worship the Lord our God everyday, but in reverence and obedience, let His holy day be Holy according to His words and commandment. For He blesses those who follow His commandments. It was also said the rest day was given for our own good, then let us trust Him for this. Trust and Obey, before sacrifices.

    God word say that we must worship Him in spirit n in truth. To be with God we must live in the spirit daily thats why Jesus say said He leave us a comforter that would lead us n keep us. Its a daily duty to live righteous n holy. God said be ye holy fir I AM Holy.
