Everything is Worship - The Blog Post
Ambassador. The definition for this word means a person who acts as a representative or promoter of a specified activity. What does that mean to us as kingdom citizens? Do we view our representation as God’s ambassadors’ in the earth an act of worship to Him?
In the front of my prayer journal, written on a little pink sticky note, it reads, “Lord, thank you for reminding me today that the way I choose to relate with others is very much a reflection of my relationship with you…”
How we do what we do – day in and day out – is reflective of our relationship with God. Our personal time of worship impacts our public actions more than we may realize. Every opportunity God gives us to interact with people is an opportunity to point them to Christ and for our light to shine brightly as His ambassadors. Everything we do is worship because worship is a lifestyle. Our goal is never to simply just have a worship experience, but rather to daily live an authentic life of worship as a continual offering to God.
But just what are we pouring out? If we are not taking in the right things, then it is only fair to reason we will not be able to give out the right things. What we do privately in communion with God spills over in everything else we do – the choices we make professionally, relationally and personally.
Colossians 3:23 tells us, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” In other words, when we intentionally live as unto the Lord even when our actions involve others, our work, meditations, and behaviors become an act of worship to God.
When we recognize our roles as ambassadors, it compels us not to misrepresent our King. We don’t want to ever negatively reflect Him because of our poor choices. When we live in worship daily, in other words, when we live in the presence of God each and ever day, it is easy to reflect who we are in Him.
The intentional act of emptying ourselves and allowing Him to fill us again becomes the fuel by which we are able to demonstrate Christ-like character and the fruit of the Spirit in all we do. This is pleasing unto the Lord, and causes us to reflect His glory. In this way, we honor him as our lives become living worship in a lost world that so desperately needs to experience the light of God we bear as His ambassadors.
So the next time you are stuck in traffic, in the car pick-up line, at the grocery store, or even at your local church or small group, remember two things: you are Christ’s ambassador; and may your representation of Him be one of an ambassador who offers worship in everything they encounter – big or small.
