Worshipping God is an outward action, public or private, affirming He is more powerful than us.
Acknowledging that truth through song, dance, prayer, meditation, or reciting The Word, is a believer’s desire. Christian hearts long to worship our LORD because we are drawn to Him. We desire to be in His presence, feel His love, communicate with Him. As we worship the LORD we are spontaneously in His presence no matter our true location.
God doesn’t care where we worship – His care is that we worship.

The Lord’s third commandment proclaims we are to keep His name holy. You may be wondering, “Why is respect so important?”
Read seven reasons (of many) to help you understand the need to respect God’s name.
