In this series we have been looking at five things in Ephesians 5 that can be instrumental in redeeming the time.  Today we are going to look at the third one…Worship.

…speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord.  Ephesians 5:19

This verse is a continuation of verse 18 that we covered last week, talking about being filled with the Spirit.  So we can assume that when we are filled with the Spirit that the natural outflow of that will be worship!

Have a heart of worship to the Lord.  

When we choose to be in an attitude of worship throughout the day, our focus will be on the Lord and not ourselves.  All that we do each and every day to love, teach, train, and care for our families…all of this should be done in an attitude of worship…given over to Him as an act of worship.

Many times we think of worship as something we just do on the outside…but I believe this verse speaks to matters of the heart…“singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord.”

Jesus reprimanded the Pharisees for only worshiping Him with their lips…but their hearts were far from Him.  Do we do the same?  Do we go about our day saying all the right things to our kids, putting on a happy face, and yet our hearts are not truly worshiping Him?

What is the attitude of your heart today?


Challenge:  Take some time today with the Lord and do some self-evaluating.  Where is your heart?  Is your heart attitude one of worship?  Pray and ask the Lord to help you begin today “singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord.”
