Have you ever considered how Mark 12:30 is directly related to our worship to God?
Jesus was asked "what is the greatest commandment?" and His response was, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength." Jesus' response was one that calls us to a true worship experience and an encounter with God by responding to Him willfully (heart), emotionally (soul), intellectually (mind), and physically (strength).
There is perhaps no greater function in the church than worship. This is what we were created to do. "You and I were made to worship, you and I were called to love..."
We are so blessed at Royce, to have the opportunity to worship and express our love of God together each and every week. We express our worship to Him in many ways including the sacrifices of praise through songs, hymns, drama, scripture, spoken word, and prayer - and each of these elements are vital to help us experience authentic worship.
