As human beings the one thing we have in common is, we were all created to worship, this is something that not even the atheist can escape from.
We are designed to be spirit lead:
Gen 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
So our soul, which is our intellect, our emotions and our will, was activated by the spirit of God and therefore was designed to be lead by the spirit of God.
Originally everything we did was to be an act of worship in complete obedience to the will of God, but the fall in the Garden of Eden changed all of that. The relationship between God and Man was severed as a result of sin. At this point true worship became corrupt as man served to please himself:
Gen 4:3 Later, Cain brought an offering to the Lord from the fruit that he had harvested,
Gen 4:4 while Abel offered the best parts of some of the firstborn from his flock. The Lord looked favorably upon Abel and his offering,
Gen 4:5 but he did not look favorably upon Cain and his offering.
When Cain became very upset and depressed,
Gen 4:6 the Lord asked Cain, “Why are you so upset? Why are you depressed?
Gen 4:7 If you do what is appropriate, you’ll be accepted, won’t you? But if you don’t do what is appropriate, sin is crouching near your doorway, turning toward you. Now as for you, will you take dominion over it?”
Cain made the conscious decision to change the offerings God had established they should make, in other words he was offering God false worship and this is why is was not accepted.
This is what man has done throughout the ages and this is why there are so many different religions and belief systems on the planet today. Man is constantly trying to offer up to God false worship. Satan through lying signs and wonders has created the environment that has allowed man’s natural tendency to rebel to come up with all kinds of spiritual ideas, from worshiping idols like they do in Hinduism and other idolatrous religions, to worshiping the elements like the Sun, and Stars, the worship of angels (Fallen) straight through to the worship of the chief Moon God trying to pass him off as the one true God as is practiced today by over 2 billion people worldwide.
There are many sincere people caught up in these religions, however, you can be sincere BUT sincerely WRONG!
God wants people to worship him in spirit and in truth!
The people in these false religions do not understand that they are worshiping in spirit and in LIE. The spirit that is leading them instead of being the Holy Spirit of God, is the fallen angel Lucifer and a third of the angels that were in heaven who followed him:
Isa 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Isa 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
Isa 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
Isa 14:15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
True worship starts with a heart transplant, which happens when a person becomes born again. As King David, who was a man after God own heart because of his attitude towards worship, asked God when he said:
Psa 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
Once that happens and the reconnection is established through the forgiveness of the blood of Jesus, we can start being lead by the Holy Spirit and our whole lifestyle should be an act of true worship.
People think worship is holding up your hands singing in church, no that is praise, which is an act of worship. However true worship is a lifestyle.
With an act of worship you can be caught up in the moment, where as in true worship it is not a temporary feeling, it is a 24/7 attitude:
Joh 4:21 Jesus told her, “Believe me, dear lady, the hour is coming when you Samaritans will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.
Joh 4:22 You don’t know what you’re worshiping. We Jews know what we’re worshiping, because salvation comes from the Jews.
Joh 4:23 Yet the time is coming, and is now here, when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. Indeed, the Father is looking for people like that to worship him.
Joh 4:24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”
Parallel Business Principles
Building a business like ours, you have to sold out to your own success and the success of others. You cannot just be going through the motions because if that is the case, you will not last long term.
So many people in our industry are lead astray by the promises of bigger and better things in some other company and they end up jumping from one company to the other, never making a success of any of them.
You have to be sold out to the company you are in and committed to working their system of doing things in order to see true results.
