Build my Life
The English word “worship” has its roots in the 13th Century Middle English word “weorthscipe.” It is literally worth-ship: the act of attributing worth to someone or something. In our personal and corporate songs and prayers, when we proclaim that God is worthy, we tell Him and remind ourselves and others that He deserves all the glory because of His holy character and acts of mercy. Then, as we show through daily conversation and action that God the Father, Son and Spirit are the first priority and foundation of our lives, we continue the work of ascribing Him the credit He is due.
Psalm 96:7-9 puts it like this…
Ascribe to the Lord, all you families of nations,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name;
bring an offering and come into His courts.
Worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness;
tremble before Him, all the earth.
The song, “Build My Life,” which we will be introducing this coming Sunday in worship puts it like this…
Worthy of every song we could ever sing
Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe
We live for You...
Holy there is no one like You
There is none besides You
Open up my eyes in wonder…
I will build my life upon Your love
It is a firm foundation…
Please listen to this song leading up to Sunday and let it prepare your heart for daily worship of Him. In your daily time with God, consider His manifold worthiness. You can find this song, and all the others we normally sing, in the YouTube and Spotify lists on the Worship Ministry Page of our website.
