Feet, Not Feelings

obedient feet are highest form of worship, Romans 12:1; Romans 10:15
I wonder if obedient feet aren't the greatest form of worship...

We moderns rate worship by:
  • the beauty of the music (especially our favorite musical style)
  • song lyrics
  • the worship leader's moderation
  • most importantly-- how it makes us feel
We think feelings are the greatest indicator of our love for Christ.

They can be, but often aren't.

As the saying goes: Faith is the engine and feelings the caboose on the train of life.

And Scripture gives us the true picture of spiritual worship: 

"I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship." Romans 12:1 

Giving our bodies as a living sacrifice means doing whatever it takes to obey and follow Christ's plan for our lives, walking the path He has prepared for us.

Yes, I think obedient feet are the greatest form of worship (Romans 10:15). What do you think?
