“My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed, for the Mighty One has done great things for me—holy is his name.” (Luke 1:46-49)

Mary worshiped through praise and song. We can honor God by joining in corporate singing and by spending time alone singing to God-or speaking about how great God is and how much we love him. Sure, sometimes we need to "push back" against the mindset that sees singing as the only or the primary way to worship God, but we can't go so far in the other direction that we forget how significant it is to sing songs of worship and praise to God.

Spiritual Reflections by Chris Vidacovich for January 21, 2018:

WORTHY WORSHIP We have come into His house, and gathered in His name To worship Him. We may have lost our sense of spiritual reality. We may have forgotten exactly why it is we gather together in worship. It really is quite simple: Our God is worthy. We may even refer to joining with those in heaven as they gather together in worship. What are they experiencing? And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!” And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who is seated on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who

is seated on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever. They cast their crowns before the throne, saying, “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.” (Revelation 4:8-11) Read that again…slowly. Can you remember the last time this was your experience in worship to God? We ask, “Is it too hot or too cold?” “Where are we going for lunch?” “Why that song?” “How long is he going to preach this time?” (Hopefully you don’t ask that one!) In John 4:23-24, Jesus told the woman at the well a truth still standing today: “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for they are the kinds of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit and His worshippers must worship in spirit and in truth. We each need to ask ourselves, “Am I the kind of worshiper the Father seeks?” We are approaching the Holy God to give Him praise for all He has done for us, especially what He has done for us through Jesus Christ our Lord. We are seeking through His Truth how to worship Him, but we must also look within ourselves and examine our spirit of worthy worship. We are coming before our Creator, so He will receive glory AND honor AND thanks because, after all, He is the One seated on the throne. As we gather before God in worship, let us within our hearts bow down before Him and lay ourselves and our selfish desires aside, casting our crowns before His throne as we proclaim:

“Worthy are you, our Lord and God”
