Declare His glory among the nations

1CHRONICLES 16:23-24 “Sing to the Lord, all the earth; proclaim His salvation day after day. Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all peoples”.

Twenty-five times the beautiful Psalm 96 is quoted in various parts of the Old Testament and *here in 1 Chronicles 16, we find one of these times.

This Psalm is often called the “missionary psalm” because when it says, “all the earth,” we understand that to be taken literally.

In Rev. 7:9, it says every tribe and village from all over the earth will be worshiping God in heaven.

Worship is an extreme form of love with unquestioning devotion.
When we worship God we show our love and reverence to God without questioning Him.

Christian worship involves praising God in music and speech, readings from scripture, prayers of various sorts, a sermon, and various holy ceremonies.

Worshiping God is not about having a great voice or talent.
It is about having your heart in the right place.
That is what God is interested in more than anything else.

God looks on our hearts when we worship. And He wants us to worship in spirit and in truth.

To worship God…….. is to see Him – truly and honestly.

True worship takes place in an honest heart.

Honesty is a rapidly disappearing attribute.
Truth is hedged and masked.
Integrity is compromised.

“Mom isn’t here” our children say when we want to avoid the caller or a visitor.


A life of integrity demands honesty. So does worship.
Jesus is waiting for us to come before Him with an honest heart.
An honest heart pleases God and is invited to worship Him.

So let’s truly understand the real meaning of worship.
Come into His presence with complete honesty and transparency.

Lay down all our pride and arrogance.

Confess that without Jesus, we are nothing.
