Our best praise

Today we have a big problem with the theme of the worship to God and is that we sometimes we do not have cluear what is the true worship. God had a problem with the people of Israel regarding the praise that comes from the heart, He tells to Israel: “You honor me with your lips, but your heart is far from me”. And this is where we ask ourselves: How can I honor God with my lips and not with my heart?

This reflection will be based on the book of Matthew Chapter 4:23

Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.

This verse belongs to a conversation that Jesus held with the Samaritan woman. We know that there was a discussion between the Jews and those of Samaria about the correct place of worship, however, at that moment, Jesus breaks that barrier of “what ius the right place”, and practically tells to that woman: “Woman, after my death many spiritual dead will rise again and no matter where they are, the only thing that will suffice is that they worship me in spirit and in truth.”

Dear friend, Jesus is referring to us, we are the ones the Father has called in his sole power to adore Christ in spirit and truth. And as true worshipers we must know the principles of true worship. Worshiping God is not just raising your hands and shouting loudly Hallelujah, this is something that goes far beyond and that comes from the heart. The people of Israel did that and God was disgusted with them.

A true worshiper is one who offers his body in a living sacrifice for God, the one whose praise is born in the heart and ends up reproducing itself in its exterior. Oh dear brothers, may our praise be that of the heart and not of the lips alone.

Let us remember that the Father sought us and this was with an end: That we give him a pure adoration. Therefore, let us adore the Father in spirit and in truth every moment of our lives, raising holy hands in any place or time.

    Our best praise
    =============
    I agree with the words in this article about praise, the true praise which pleases the Lord. Religious people may think God likes loud words and lifted arms at the time they praise Him.
    The Lord Jesus Christ was angry with the pharisees because of their hypocrisy and appearance of holy people, while the fact was, as Jesus said, they were whitewashed sepulchers…

    “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you are like to white washed sepulchers, which indeed….”
    (Matthew 23:27)

    Those people had an appearance of piety; they wanted to be seen by others, and they even boasted of their own “achievements”.
    In our days, performances of nice songs by great
    choruses—which sing biblical lyrics or hymns—may, no doubt, cheer up our senses; but sometimes people just seem to perform a musical show instead of rendering an act of worship to God.

    We know the Lord loves a broken spirit and a contrite heart instead of a vain, void spirit which is far away of God.

    “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.”
    (Psalm 51:17)

    The Lord Jesus Christ taught us the way to please the Father when we adore Him.
    “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24).

    It is not useful to try to please the Father without remembering He is a Spirit, while we are human beings. He loves us greatly, but He is pleased when we adore Him anywhere in our spirits, not with external signs of piety.

    Who is sufficient to do this? Let’s pray that our Lord Jesus Christ may help us to do His Will
