Book Review - Worship Changes Everything by Darlene Zschech

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

From the Back Cover

An Invitation to Praise and Honor God in Every Area of Life
It can be easy to have a heart filled with worship on a Sunday morning as the church band is playing your favorite song. But then comes Monday morning's commute and Tuesday afternoon's pile of laundry. How do we maintain a heart of worship in the daily grind?

Darlene Zschech has spent her life thinking and teaching about worship. With wisdom and contagious joy, she shares her thoughts on what worship truly is and how it should invade every facet of our being. Everything we do can be an act of worship to the Lord, transforming our work, our friendships, our churches, our families. It's all about living in His presence--being aware of the Lord by our side and at work in our lives.

Learn to live a life of worship. You will be amazed by the purpose and freedom it will bring.

Review: What is worship? Darlene explains it well. "Worship is a response to the revelation of just how great God is."  Those are powerful words! He deserves our worship in all facets of our lives, not just on Sunday mornings!

I am really glad I got to read Darlene's take on the importance of worship in our day to day lives. I, like others,  have been the person that can get so into worship on Sunday that you can literally feel the heartbeat of God, and then forget to worship him in my day to day life. Darlene really breaks it down and explains how important it is to have an intimate time of worship everyday. She divides the book into 2 parts. The first part is basically why we should worship, and the 2nd part is applying worship to different aspects of our lives. The sections that really spoke to me personally were My Service, My Love for Others, and Loving myself.

She has plenty of scriptures, stories, and quotes to reflect on throughout the book.  I chose to read this book in small segments rather than a page turner. I think it's easier to sit and reflect on it if you take it in small bites.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a better understanding of worship and wants to apply worship to your day to day life.

"Worship changes everything because it is the reality of His presence that leads us to the heavenly, forever experience of worshiping God for eternity." - Darlene Zschech
