DCLM Daily Manna – Worship God Acceptably

Topic: Worship God Acceptably

Text: 1 Chronicles 9:20-34 (KJV)

Key Verse: “All these which were chosen to be porters
in the gates were two hundred and twelve. These were
reckoned by their genealogy in their villages, whom
David and Samuel the seer did ordain in their set
office” (1 Chronicles 9:22).

MESSAGE:

It is common these days for people to rush to church on
service days and even officiate there as a matter of
routine. Some people give very little thought to what it
means to worship God, and therefore, the services they
render not pleasing to Him. If only they knew that to
worship God is to solemnly, lovingly and thankfully
appreciate Him for who He is (His nature and Self-
worth), they would worship acceptably.
In Israel, the priests, porters and levites who served in
the temple took their duty seriously.

They were chosen
on the basis of their genealogy and family tree that was
traced to Abraham. The weight of their duty also made it
imperative that they be reliable and trustworthy to
officiate in various capacities in the worship of God.

Their responsibilities were to be discharged with the
utmost care for the glory of God and benefit of the
people. While some of them looked after the temple
treasures, chambers and vessels, others handled the
ointment, fine flour, wine, oil, frankincense ointments,
spices and showbread.

There were others whose work
was singing. In all these, they were dutiful and faithful.
It is important we have a flourishing relationship with
the Lord and approach worship of God with utmost
reverence. The new birth experience is indispensable
here. Also, dependability, faith and commitment to Him
are also required of true worshippers.

Personal and
congregational worship must be our primary purpose
around which all other activities of life revolve. And
each time we gather for congregational worship, it must
be with a prepared heart to appreciate Him, receive His
words and obey them. God’s worship must be devoid of
frivolities, carnality and sensuality. Virtues of joy,
peace, self-control, purity, modesty, love and faith must
characterize our lives during worship of God for His
blessings to flow into our lives.

Thought For The Day: “God is a Spirit: and they that
worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

Bible Reading in a Year: Leviticus 1-4.
