When we worship God, we show our love for Him!

When I say the word worship what first comes to mind? For me, I first think singing. Back in Cove Kids we always ask the kids why do we sing? Why do we do praise and worship? When we worship God, we show our love for Him. God loves to see us dancing and praising Him. We not only worship God through singing and praying, but we worship Him through our actions. Romans 12:1 says to be a living sacrifice. That means that we put aside our own desires and plans and put energy into what God wants us to do. He wants us to follow and obey Him. We show our love for God in everything we have and everything we do. We need to have an attitude of worship by putting God first in our lives being that living sacrifice. Our bible story is from Exodus 35-40

One day the Israelites were camped at the bottom of Mount Sinai. God told Moses to build a tabernacle, which means, “tent”. It was to be a central place for the Israelites to pray and worship God. God gave Moses specific instructions for building the tabernacle. The tabernacle was surrounded by a curtain-like fence. When the Israelites walked through the door of the curtain fence, there was a large courtyard. Inside the court there was an altar, a basin and a tent containing two compartments. The two compartments of the tent were called the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place. The Holy Place included three items: a gold lamp stand that burned oil, a wood table with 12 loaves of bread, and a wood and gold altar. The Most Holy Place contained only the Ark of the Covenant. The tabernacle took an entire year to build. This was a place where people learned about God, and it was a place to worship Him. (Source: Exodus 35-40)

The Israelites needed a place to worship God and focus on Him. Today we have churches where we gather together to hear God’s word. Church is a great place to worship God but remember we can worship Him anywhere. Don't be like the people of this world, but let God change the way you think. Then you will know how to do everything that is good and pleasing to Him. Romans 12:2 CEV
We can worship God through our actions. We need to follow and obey Him. As you go about your day this week have an attitude of worship by putting God first.

Have a great week and see you in CKC!
