A Worshiper of God
God created humankind to worship him. Our worship includes cultivating a personal relationship with God, praising God together with other Christians, and honoring God with our everyday lives. The Bible, as the very Word of God, enables us to know God and teaches us how to worship him. Disciples of Jesus seek to know, love, and obey God above all else, and our worship of God is dependent upon our ability to read God’s Word and engage with him through prayer.
“God, you are the only one worthy of worship and praise. Show me how to know you better, how to obey your commands, and how to love you with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength.”
Prayer is our communication with God and a vital part of our relationship with God. Because of who we are in Christ, we can converse with God anytime, anywhere. God desires for us to approach him in prayer, to express words of praise and thanks giving, to confess our weaknesses and our sin, and to discuss every aspect of our lives, including our needs and wants. Those who are new to prayer or who may be looking for a fresh approach might consider praying along with the Praying the Bible podcast or access our prayer page with even more resources.
Read the Bible.
The Bible is God’s Word. It is the primary way God speaks to us. A daily habit of Bible reading enables us to worship God, commune with him, and obey his commands. Consider starting with one chapter per day in Mark or John, or follow our
Summit Bible reading plan. For additional training and opportunities, visit your campus page to find a bible study near you.
