Private Worship: The Key to Joy by Nancy Missler.
When God put it on my heart to write a book about worship, I questioned my friends, my family and others how and when they worshiped. “Do you worship the Lord on a daily basis, or just on Sundays?” The answers I received were surprising: One friend said, “Oh, I worship the Lord all the time!” Another commented, “I worship when I’m cleaning the house.” Another actually replied, “I worship the Lord when I’m with the children.” A gentleman responded, “I worship the Lord when I’m driving in the car.” Another commented, “I worship Him when I’m at the office,” etc. In other words, the general response I received was “I worship the Lord all day long, no matter what I’m doing.”
Now, I understand what these believers are saying-they have an attitude of worshiping the Lord all day long. And that’s fine and that’s good, but is that really what God means when He says in John 4:23-24, “The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.”
In other words, can we really “worship the Lord” while cleaning the house, while being with the children, while driving our cars or being at the office? Is this really what God desires?
This is what Private Worship: The Key to Joy tries to explore. What exactly is worship? How important is it? Do we worship the Lord only on Sundays in church or are we to worship Him privately at home every day? And, if the latter, how do we really do that?
