But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship Him.” John 4:23.

 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worshipDo not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. - Romans 12:1-2

In its purest form, worship consists of absolute focus on the incredible attributes of God. It's a setting aside of thoughts and plans linked to this world and devoting all we do to the glorification of our Creator. Today, consider the following passage, then keep the goodness of God at the forefront of your mind and worship Him with all you do.

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands and crying out with a loud voice, saying “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom; thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen   - Revelation 7:9-15
