Worship is the topic of this month’s Tending the Holy Thursday series. On many of my Thursday posts, I pick one theme (or person of faith) to explore deeper for several weeks.
I introduced this topic last week on this post about that you can access by clicking here.
As we explore this spiritual practice, I am so excited about this month’s free download, a beautiful printable called “Worship the Lord.” I compiled 10 verses from the Bible into a one page, easy to refer to guide for your personal study.

Quotes about Worship

A. W. Tozer
The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service. The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless.
To worship God in truth is to recognize Him for being who He is, and to recognize ourselves for what we are. -Brother Lawrence
