Testimony of Worshiping God
Topic: Testimony

For Solomon had made a brasen scaffold, of five cubits long, and five cubits broad, and three cubits high, and had set it in the midst of the court: and upon it he stood, and kneeled down upon his knees before all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven, (II Chronicles 6:13 KJV)

Jesus said in John 4:23, “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.” The word worship means “kneeling or prostration to do homage (to one) or make obeisance, whether in order to express respect or to make supplication (Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon).”

What is our testimony of worship God or serve Him? Many of us may have some kinds of worship in our lives. We do not need to have wooden idols, but we put things in our lives that pull away from God. When you’d get up on Monday morning, what kind of things you are thinking on your top priority? Even though many of us may have outside jobs, we need to pause ourselves to have open conversation with God. We don’t have to close our eyes to have quality time with Him. Tune your worship music CD on and reflect what He has done for you. Maybe you are serving your community. Whatever we do in His name, we are worshipping God. Apostle Paul said, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things (Philippians 4:8).”

We are living in this world that has everything in technology. We do not have to spend hours of cooking to have dinner anymore. Instead, we put the frozen food in a microwave to cook our meals for us within ten minute. Or we don’t answer the phone immediately. Instead, we let the caller put the message in an answering machine. As we are thinking on this, do people have time to serve God? The answer is NO.

As the technologies are getting popular, it doesn’t mean that everything is easy for us. We still need to get up from our beds and do our work for that day. When the computer would decide to take vacation, we would need to call the technician for the repair service. When the football game would come on Sunday morning, we would decide to debate ourselves to whether to watch the game or go to the church. I know this may make some of you nerve.

However, there is a day for us to stand before God to give our testimonies to Him on what we have done with the gift of salvation. It is a question for every believer should testify to God. Last week, I gave a brief testimony of my life and web ministry. You don’t have to give genius testimony for other people to worship you. Every media evangelist should already receive their rewards. We do not have to be world greatest preachers for God’s kingdom. That’s wrong method that most American preachers are doing for over three decades. We are not in some contests against other churches or religions, but our battlefield in the spiritual world, where Satan and demons are.

I love how David fought against Philistine. David said in I Samuel 17:45, “Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.”

We cannot enter into the war zone until we’d recognize God, because He is our Father and King. Not a single His enemy would able to receive the victory over Him.

Again, what is your testimony? If you’d like to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I’d like to encourage you to do two simple things. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now. Secondly, I’d like to encourage you to find a good solid biblical teaching church and Christian friends. They can help you to build strong relationship with God.
