As human being we were created to worship, this was a primary function. God wanted to have an intimate relationship with us and he knew that would only come out of worship. An important act of worship is service and at the beginning of the creation of man we see God giving us authority and also instructions:
Gen 1:26 And God said, let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth.
Gen 1:27 And God created the man in His own image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female.
Gen 1:28 And God blessed them; and God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the seas, and over birds of the heavens, and over all beasts creeping on the earth.
Gen 2:15 And Jehovah God took the man and put him into the Garden of Eden, to work it and to keep it.
To serve God is to act on his behalf and the desire to do that springs out of a relationship with him, which springs out of worship.
Most people think that you are worshiping when you go to church and sing a few hymms or if you are in a prayer meeting, however worship is not a single event, it is a lifestyle which is 24/7.
To worship God is to be in his presence, therefore if we understand this fully, it should affect the way in which we behave.
The core driving force behind worship is love and love is never forced, that is why God does not force anyone to worship him and that is why nobody in born Christian, but it is a decision that an individual makes at a moment in time in their lives, once that person has a moral understanding of what is right and wrong.
Because we were designed to worship, if we are not worshiping the true and living God, we will worship something else. Anything we put before God becomes an idol in our lives and God hates idolatry. This could be: Your family, Your Career, Your House, Your Car, Your Spouse, Yourself, not to mention all of the false gods and false religions that are out there.
There is only one way to God and that is through the Lord Jesus, the Christ.
The saddest thing which people unfortunately do not understand is, that if we seek God first and his righteousness through worship, which leads to intimacy with him and a true relationship, then all of these other things that we are trying to achieve, they will all fall in to line.
Joh 4:22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is of the Jews.
Joh 4:23 But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. For the Father also seeks such, the ones worshiping Him.
Joh 4:24 God is a spirit, and the ones worshiping Him must worship in spirit and truth.
We cannot deceive God with our worship because God know who are truly his, so we can say all of the right things in front of people and we can be even seen to be doing the right things, but God truly knows what is going on in our hearts and that is where the motives will be judged.
David was called a man after God’s own heart because of his attitude towards repentance and worship.
Worship does not mean we will never make mistakes, but what is does mean is because of the level of relationship we have with the father, as soon as we make the mistake, the Holy Spirit convicts us of it and straight away we repent. We then move forward knowing the God does not hold any confessed sin that we have repented of, against us:
Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to flesh, but according to Spirit.
Rom 8:2 For the Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus set me free from the law of sin and of death.
Our success within Reliv is going to be a direct reflection of our service to others. This is why only a certain type of person will be able to build a Reliv business. The most challenging part of building our businesses are going to be the people and the most rewarding part of building our businesses are also going to be the people. Therefore we need to learn more about people than anything else.
Building our businesses we are going to have to apply Galatians 5:
Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith,
Gal 5:23 meekness, self-control. Against such things there is not a law.
If you don’t apply these principals to building your business you will eventually quit.
When you have helped enough people with these products and in this business, then the voice of the negative people around you start to become quieter and quieter until eventually, you don’t even hear them.
You are going to have to build a relationship with Reliv and you do this through the Reliv system. As your relationship with Reliv grows, the results in your business with also grow because when you are talking to people about the products or the business, your will be talking with more conviction in your voice.
So remember, as a true worshiper you have access to the source of life which God and God has said, if you put him first, he will bless the work of your hands.
