He Is God, and We Are Not

Romans 12:1 NLT

1 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God

because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the

kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.

  1. Worship – Is intimacy with God at all times.

  • Praise is what we do to declare what God has done for us and all his works, but worship is who we are.

Matthew 15:8-9 ESV

8 "This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; 9 in

vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.”

4 Characteristics of a True Worshipper

1. A Sincere Heart

  • A sincere heart is honest, loyal, fully committed, and has no reservations.

  • Is there something inside my heart that is an enemy to You, Lord?

  • We are flawed as human beings, Christ is flawless.

2. Unshakeable Faith

Psalm 119:128 NKJV

“Therefore, all Your precepts concerning all things I consider to be right; I hate

every false way.”

  • What does it mean to have an unshakeable faith?

3. A Purified Heart

Romans 5:9 NKJV

“Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.”

  • The Word teaches us that we are justified by the blood of Jesus, in other words God sees us as if we’ve never sinned.

Romans 8:1 ESV

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”

1 John 1:9 ESV

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to

cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

1 John 3:21 NLT

21 Dear friends, if we don't feel guilty, we can come to God with bold


4. A Body set apart for HIM (Consecration)

1 Corinthians 6:12 NLT

12 You say, "I am allowed to do anything"—but not everything is good for you.

And even though "I am allowed to do anything," I must not become a slave to


  • How are we sustaining Him?

  • What are we exposing Him to?

  • Are our works worthy like that of someone who loves and serves God?

Romans 12:2 NLT

Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you

into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know

God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Authentic/Genuine Worship

John 4:23-24 ESV

23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will

worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to

worship him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in

spirit and truth."

John 14:21-23 ESV

21 Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me.

And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and

manifest myself to him." 22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, "Lord, how is it

that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?" 23 Jesus answered

him, "If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him,

and we will come to him and make our home with him.

Isaiah 46:9 NLT

9 Remember the things I have done in the past. For I alone am God! I am God,

and there is none like me.
