If you are just popping over here, you can catch up in this series of 31 Days of Living with Purpose here. I am on a journey of living the next 31 Days with meaningful purpose behind each thought and action. I’m telling you, at Day 9 this. is. getting. hard.
The first 8 days we’ve looked at how to live our ordinary moments on purpose in every little thing we do through rest, entertaining, keeping balance, and celebrating. Today, we’ll look at worship.
Years ago when I began having a “who am I” and “what am I here for” crisis, God brought to new light a scripture that I’ve always loved. The new life was breathed into me through The Message version of the Bible.
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. (Romans 12:1)
To live purposefully as a living sacrifice is to take your everyday, ordinary life and give it to God as worship. I remember thinking WHOA . . . worship isn’t just about one hour on Sunday! When you sleep, eat, walk, play, work, change a diaper, confront a friend, sing a song, plan a meal, or even run carpool — it is worship to God. No mundane task or ordinary skill goes unnoticed by the Lord of Lords.
Now that we’ve laid the ground work that every day, moment, and minute have purpose, tomorrow we dig in a little deeper.
Are you having a “who am I” crisis?
Can you begin to see that everything – big and small – has purpose, meaning, and should be your everyday worship and offering to God?
