The Heart of Worship

True worship begins with the heart. If the heart is not right -- if Jesus is not present and sitting on your heart's throne, then it is impossible to worship God in truth and spirit (John 4:23-24). A self-examination of the heart and prayerful attitude will help develop true worship.

Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart. (Psalm 26:2)

THE HEART’S WORSHIP.
-Bowring

The offerings to Thy throne which rise,
Of mingled praise and prayer,
Are but a worthless sacrifice,
Unless the heart be there.

Upon Thine all-discerning ear
Let no vain words intrude;
No tribute but the vow sincere,—
The tribute of the good.

Our offerings will indeed be blest,
If sanctified by Thee;
If Thy pure spirit touch the breast
With its own purity.

O, may that spirit warm each heart
To piety and love,
And to life’s lowly vale impart
Some rays from heaven above.
