One of the ways we worship God is by being excellent at what we do. For the pastor, that means arriving for services completely prepared and ready to give a message to the best of his ability. For those leading music, that means practicing and working hard so that the music is the best it can possibly be. But what about those who don’t serve in the church? How should they worship with excellence? First, they worship with excellence by preparing their hearts, confessing their sins, and clearing their minds of distraction. Secondly, they worship with excellence by being excellent at their professions. Worship does not simply happen at church. When a doctor trains hard and does the best he can to perform his or her medical duties, he or she is worshipping God. When a teacher does the best job possible in the classroom, God is worshipped. When a farmer plows his fields with diligence or a plumber fixes a leaky pipe to the best of his ability, God is worshipped. If you are a follower of Jesus, you are called to be excellent at what you do. When you do what you do with excellence, God receives glory.
