Discipleship represents the lifelong process of becoming a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. One aspect of discipleship that is often overlooked is worship. Worship, both individually and in community, plays a crucial role in discipleship, shaping our hearts and minds to be more like Christ. In this episode, we explore the connection between worship and discipleship, highlighting the ways in which worship can transform our lives and deepen our relationships with God and others in every sphere of life.

Worship is not only about music or a Sunday service. It is about giving value, attention, and adoration to something. Worship impacts our lives by stirring up affection towards God and taking it from our heads to our hearts. As leaders, we have a responsibility to model the importance of worship to those around us. Just as we wouldn’t skip a date night with our spouse because we didn’t feel like we were getting anything out of it, we should approach worship with the same commitment and obedience. Ultimately, worship is about our hearts and our relationship with God, and it should be a priority in our lives as disciples.
