Purposeful Worship

It is actually routine for me to constantly check my phone in church. Like many other areas of my life the Holy Spirit is working on, I’ve had a nudge about my “bad habits” in church. 

For someone else, this distraction may not be a phone. During worship, are you fully focused on the ONE you are worshipping? Does God have 100% of your heart and mind or do you wander off to problems, family, finances etc.

In Leviticus 10:3, it is apparent that God has to be glorified in our worship. For this to happen, our hearts and minds must be set on Him during worship. ‘Loose worship’ eventually leads to spiritual death.

I will urge you to attend a church where you get a proper sermon, an in-depth study of God’s word. Do not be in a hurry to leave God’s presence, devote time to God, it is the very least you could do.

Come to think of it, it is pointless to physically show up in church when your mind is elsewhere. 

Dear Lord, I thank you for your Word, teach me to worship you purposefully and wholeheartedly. I bind every satanic distraction that prevents me from being focused in your presence. Forgive me for neglecting you and create in me a clean heart. Help me to worship you in spirit and in truth, In Jesus’ name. Amen

  1. Its good that you have realized that your phone can become a stumbling block for you at church. I had that problem at one point staying focused in church. now I wont even look at my phone during church I turn my ringer off. I have some friends that will turn their phones off completely. The devil will use any distractions that he can while you are in church so that you dont get the message. I constantly pray for a sharp mind and that i can focus while im in his house. i also take notes with a note pad. your time at church always remember that you are the performer and God is the audience. when you realize that you can become totally consumed in praise and worship. which is exactly what He wants
    God bless you sister and keep sharing
