The Five Love Languages of Worship

The Five Love Languages of Worship

The emotional need we have to be loved by another was put inside us by God. Unfortunately, our desire to be loved is never fully met because people let us down. However, if we will receive God’s love for us and reciprocate that love in return, we will experience a satisfaction like we’ve never known. There are amazing parallels between how God loves us and how we love one another. Understanding how God loves us will help us better love him back in return, expressing our love fully using every means possible.

Acts of Service

September 23, 2018

All our service, at home, at work, and at church can be an expression of love and worship for our Lord. But it has to come from the heart. It’s all about serving out of our wholehearted love for the Lord, not out of some sense of earning or duty. So how can we express our love and worship of Christ through acts of service? In the book of Colossians, the apostle Paul taught the Colossian believers that they could express their love of Christ through appropriate acts of service. We can express our love and worship of Jesus through our acts of service.


Giving Gifts

How can we express our love and worship with all heart, soul, mind and strength? It’s only possible because God has first loved us.
How has God loved us first? He created us. He gave us everything we have and everything we are. And even though we have rebelled against Him in sin, He loved us so much that He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus to redeem us. And to those of us who believe in Him, He has given us His Spirit to live in us, making us His children, and promising us eternal life with Him forever in glory. That’s how He has loved us!! So what gift can you give to the Lord to express your love and worship to Him? In the gospel according to Mark, Jesus commended the extravagant gift of worship given by the woman who anointed Him. We can learn to express our worship by giving to the Lord from this woman’s example.


Quality Time

September 9, 2018

Without routinely giving God our Quality Time or “Undivided Attention,” we will struggle to know and be known by God. We will find ourselves feeling distant from Him, despite how much we might do for Him. We will struggle to perceive His will for our life and will be shaken by the questions that come with each day. We will find ourselves feeling tired, no matter how much rest we get.

In Mark 6, Jesus dismissed his disciples and the crowd and intentionally went off alone to give God His undivided attention. As we learn from Jesus’s actions in this story, we too can worship God with our undivided attention.


Words of Affirmation

September 2, 2018

God didn’t incidentally love us; He wasn’t emotionally moved by our actions towards Him and therefore loved us in return. He made a choice to express His love, even when we didn’t deserve it. His expression of love at the cross was intentional and well thought out. He laid down His life for us and entered into a mysterious relationship with the Church, whereby He calls us His “Bride”. In this series, we will use principles taken from Chapman’s “The Five Love Languages” to better understand God’s love for the Church and to learn how to reciprocate this love in worship. Today we will discuss how God loves us with “Words Of Affirmation” and how we can reciprocate that love in worship.
