Day 1: What does it mean to be a worshiper of God?
What does it mean to be a worshiper of God? It seems like this would be a subtle, simple question. But in reality, it’s a question with tremendous depth.
Did you know there’s not a verse anywhere in all of the Bible that says, “Being a worshiper of God means…” It’s just not there. Instead, what the Scriptures do provide is story after story of people who trust God, follow Him, submit to Him, serve Him, bow to Him, and more. In other words, God has revealed to us how others took steps towards worshiping Him, and leaves it up to each of us to determine what steps we can take to become worshipers of God.
So maybe a better question is this: What’s the first step you can take to become more of a worshiper of God? For some of us, the first step may be to acknowledge our own self-centeredness, and stop trusting in ourselves and instead place our trust in God.
For others, the first step may be serving God in some new way. Or it may be spending time with God in His Word and in prayer. Or it may be acknowledging our fears and turning them over to God. As you read today, consider this: What’s the first step you can take to become more of a worshiper of God?

Reflect: What did you H.E.A.R. from God today? HEAR Bible Study Method
Heavenly Father, I know there is much in my life that can grow in order for me to become a better worshiper of You. And even though I see these things so clearly, I’m fearful that I’m not strong enough or courageous enough to persevere. As I enter into this new week, my desire is to remember that You have made me brave, and You have made me Yours, and that with You, all things are possible. I trust You today, and commit myself to Your will and Your ways. I’ll follow You wherever You may lead me. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
