In my mind, I can’t help to think of hands raised in the middle of a congregation of believers when I think of worshipping our living God. It is embedded in my head, but I fully know that worship doesn’t have to look like our western culture has looked for years.
When it comes to family worship time, it can similarly feel as if it should be a certain way. The cookie-cutter visual is a daddy reading scripture, mom leading a hymn or worship song and kids following along. Yet, I highly doubt that the Lord says it should look this particular way.
This post shares some very practical and simple approaches to family worship time that breaks the mold and rules.
Worship is so much more than what we have made it out to be. In Romans 12:1-2, Paul described worship perfectly. He said, “I urge you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable, or well pleasing and perfect.”
These are all the elements we should find in worship. Let’s take a moment to get back to the basics of worship in our homes.
