ATTITUDE OF WORSHIP: EVERYWHERE, ALL THE TIME
By A. W. Tozer
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all
in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, giving
thanks to God and the Father by him.
- - - Colossians 3:17
I have to be faithful to what I know to be true,
so I must tell you that if you will not worship God
seven days a week, you do not worship Him on one
day a week!
There is no such thing in heaven as Sunday worship,
unless it is accompanied by Monday worship and
Tuesday worship and right on through the rest of the
Too many of us try to discharge our obligations to
God Almighty in one day --- usually one trip to church.
Sometimes, nobly, we make it two trips to church, but
it is all on the same day when we have nothing else
to do --- and that is supposed to be worship!
I do not say that you must be at church all of the
time --- how could you be? I am saying that you can
worship God at your desk, on an elevated train, or
driving in traffic. You can worship God in school, on
the basketball court. You can worship God in whatever
is legitimate and right and good.
Surely, we can go to church and worship on one day,
but it is not true worship unless it is followed by
continuing worship in the days that follow. We cannot
pray toward the east and walk toward the west and hope
for harmony in our beings! You can name the name of
Jesus a thousand times, but if you will not follow the nature
of Jesus, the name of Jesus will not mean anything to you!
See to it that there is not an hour or a place or an act or a
location that is not consecrated and given over to God.
You will be worshipping Him --- and He will accept it!
Yours in Christ,
Paul N. F.
