Where should we worship the Lord? In church? In our homes? In our cars? The answer is that we should worship Him wherever His Spirit is found. Psalm 139:7-10 tells us that there is no place that we can go where the Spirit of the Lord will not be with us. His presence is with us 24/7. Since His Spirit is found wherever we are, anywhere and everywhere we are is a place to worship Him.
What is more important than where we worship Him is how we worship Him. I don’t mean what kind of music we use or even if we should use music at all. I don’t mean the posture we take in worship. It doesn’t matter if we are lifting our hands, bowing before Him, sitting, standing, or even kneeling. What matters is the posture of our hearts. Our hearts need to true.
Speaking to the Samaritan woman at the well, Jesus said that true worshipers must worship the Father in spirit and truth (John 4:24). To do so, our hearts must truly belong to Him. To worship God in spirit and truth, we need the help of the Holy Spirit and we need the help of Jesus because Jesus is the truth (John 14:6). We need to have a personal relationship with God–Father, Son and Holy Spirit. When we do, no matter where we worship, our worship will be pleasing and acceptable to the Lord.
