True Worship of the True God

“True worship is to be so personally and hopelessly in love with God, that the idea of a transfer of affection never even remotely exists.” – A. W. Tozer

Idolatry is common and rampant in our society. To spend all of our days worshiping the unseen God is dismissed as foolish and short-sighted. To stand amazed before the omnipotent God is considered ignorant and unenlightened. Some in our culture cannot worship God because they are too busy trying to explain away the notion of the one true God.

Some want to believe (and do believe) that there is god in all of us, so that we are justified in worshiping ourselves. Others believe that everyone who believes in a god is worshiping the same god in different ways. Still others believe that there is no god at all and worship science, reason, and logic. It has been said that everyone will worship something. Even agnostics worship their complacency.

Make no mistake; there is one true God. If you love anything or anyone more than Him, you are practicing idolatry. When you come to know God for yourself, you can’t ever go back to the emptiness of your soul without Him. Chasing whatever this world has to offer cannot fill the void of being incomplete. No amount of money, friends, or possessions can give you the kind of peace and eternal security that loving the Great I Am provides.
