I hear that worship can come in many forms. From praying, to singing, to reading his word. I am not here to judge anyone where they worship or not just wanting to state the facts. A Gallup poll was taken and it said that 40% attend church regularly with 15% said they attend rarely or not at all. I most of the times do not believe polls since the # of people surveyed are most the time low. I believe that worship is a very essential part of faith in Him. If you work on Sundays like I do there are ways you can worship like watching the service online, attending evening service, or meeting together with other believers on a weekday at one’s home.

The bible mentions worship several times. Starting in Hebrews 10:23-25 it says “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” As we worship Him we also Encourage each other in faith. In Psalm 150:1-6 it mentions “Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals!” Wow, let us include some instrument in the services as we praise him. And in Matthew 18:20 it says “where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” I know at first it will be hard to find a spot in a worship center, But find a spot that comfortable and seek his guidance.
As you go through today I pray that the holy spirit will move over you and bless you with his goodness. If you are currently looking for a church keep searching there will be a congregation you will fill his calling to. It took me a year when I was in college in Florida and the church that I called home was just down the street. Another way to get involved in the church is to be part of a ministry. You will then get to know the people and be the hands and feet of His working. If you like some more help do reach out and I can guide you in the right direction.
Have a blessed day,
