are those who keep his decrees, who seek him with their
whole heart" —Psalm 119:2
Contrary to our popular association with
emotions, biblical writers pictured the heart as the seat
of our will. To love God with all your heart means responding
to him with intentional choices that reflect his character
and will. To engage people volitionally in worship is
to develop gatherings that move people to actual decisions.
Worship is not just about what we do in church on Sunday
mornings, but about how we live our lives 24/7. Experiential
Worship gatherings help people encounter God in such a
way that they are inspired and empowered to live their
whole lives as sacred offering to him. Explore these HeartWorship
ideas and ask God to show you how to engage the will of
your people more fully in worship.
