When we look at the story of Abel from Genesis 4, we can see what it looks like to worship by faith. Worship is the recognition of God for who He is, what He has done and what we are trusting Him to do in the future.
Sometimes worship is private meditation. Other times it can be a celebration. But it is always done in recognition that He alone deserves our worship because He is the only true God. Worship was established in the early chapters of Genesis as we see Abel bringing “the firstlings of his flock” to offer to God. He is viewed as a righteous man in Hebrews 11 because he gave God the best that he had. He gave to God first, honoring God’s person and position.
If you want meaning in your life, then you are going to have to learn to worship by faith. That means that you aren’t just seeking after feelings when you worship. You don’t have to feel like you want to praise Him in order to lift up your voice in worship. Truth be told, we all sometimes don’t feel much emotion in our worship. That’s okay. We do it because we need to do it. We need to worship . . . and, Scripture tells us, God seeks worshipers.
So, let’s worship by faith. Don’t make your feelings the engine. Keep them as the caboose. They’re still attached to the train, but they don’t run the show. Worshiping by faith is an investment of your time, not merely a spending of it. And good investments always pay good dividends.
