|True worshipbegins with a heart that is totally turned towards GodImagine what it would be like to step inside your church sanctuary on Sunday morning and witness the vision that Isaiah saw. He writes, “I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings . . . One called out to another and said, ‘Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts, the whole earth is full of His glory.’ And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the temple was filling with smoke” (Isaiah 6:1-4).
This had to be a glorious sight! But it also was one that conflicted Isaiah’s heart because he knew that he was guilty of sin. Immediately, a godly sense of fear swept over him, and he cried out, “Woe is me, for I am ruined! Because I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts” (Isaiah 6:5). When we become aware of God’s holy presence, we won’t be able to stop ourselves from worshiping Him and seeking His cleansing for our sins.
However, if we become so entangled with sin and the pleasures of this world, we will fail to sense the need to worship God. In fact, our spirits will be dead to any true praise. Instead, we will yawn and check our watches to see if the preacher is preaching longer than he should.
True worship begins with a heart that is totally turned toward God.
