A Heart for Worship

Read 2 Chronicles 1:1 through 5:14

Attitude is important. God can and will hold people accountable for their attitudes about Him and for the attitudes they bring into His presence.


In our laid-back society, some attending worship services seem to have lost their respect for the high and holy One. In First Corinthians, Paul urged his readers to examine themselves before taking Communion. God loves and accepts everyone, but He is an awesome God who demands holiness from His followers and delights in those who praise Him wholeheartedly.


At that moment a thick cloud filled the Temple of the Lord. The priests could not continue their service because of the cloud, for the glorious presence of the Lord filled the Temple of God (2 Chronicles 5:13–14).


Preparing for worship and losing ourselves in adoration can result in His presence so overshadowing us that the cares of the world fade away. Such worship honors Him and brings true satisfaction.


Challenge for Today: Examine your attitudes about God.
