James 2:21 through James 2:22 (NKJV)
21Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?

Abraham's worship (the sacrifice of Isaac) was not made complete until he actually attempted to carry out the call of God. So what does that mean for you and your life of worship? If you truly want to worship the way that God has ordained, you must be prepared to move. Be ready to heed the voice of the Lord. Remember that Jesus said in John chapter 4 that true worshipers must worship in Spirit and in Truth. Now watch this. We worship in Spirit through our humility and faith and we worship in Truth through our obedience—faith in action.

If Abraham had not gone through with the sacrifice of Isaac, he would have nullified his faith. He would have also shown that his plan was more important than God's plan, and that is pride which nullifies humility.

God is seeking people that will worship—truly worship—and he has promises that if you are faithful to worship on His terms that there are endless rewards and blessings. I challenge you to be a true worshiper. I challenge you to humble yourself before God, allow Him to speak to you and give you instruction, and be ready to move when He speaks. Then I believe God will look down and say "Behold, this is my child in whom I am well pleased."
