The people called Christians have become the epicenter of lifestyles that cause people to either emulate or criticize them. When it is worthy of emulation, then the world must have seen something useful about it especially when it strikes the right chords with them. However, it also attracts sharp criticism when it goes the wrong direction. In our worship of the Lord, we either portray Him in the right way or the other way.
The right worship God expects from us is that which will glorify Him before the world. We are neither to live loosely nor indulge in any form of lifestyle that negates the kingdom we belong to. The passage spells out some things for us to observe if we must worship the Lord rightly. We need to understand what the will of God is for us and do them. We need to avoid not only drunkenness, but also its indulgence. We cannot serve God with the wrong lifestyle. It does not glorify the name of the Lord and does not make people see right. If people cannot see the godlike character in us, we cannot say we are worshipping the Lord.
The right worship is living right, such that our light would shine before others such that the world may see it and glorify our Father in heaven Matt. 5:15. In Eph. 5 verse 19, our output should be in speaking in Psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. In the world today, worldly songs have permeated our hearts and minds. Even some so-called gospel musicians no longer give us the spiritual type of music; they are only out to show their artistry in singing and not to minister. Finally, note verse 21 which admonishes us to submit one to another in the fear of the Lord, not to show who is greater, because the proud will always be far from the Lord.
Romans 12:1 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.”
Heavenly, Father, help me to live the right type of life that will give glory to Your mighty name, in Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
