As I waited in the breakfast buffet line at a Christian conference center, a group of women entered the dining hall. I smiled, saying hello to a woman who stepped into the line behind me. Returning my greeting, she said, “I know you.” We scooped scrambled eggs onto our plates and tried to figure out where we’d met. I was pretty sure we had a case of mistaken identity though.

When we returned for lunch, the woman approached me. “Do you drive a white car?”

I shrugged. “I used to. A few years ago.”

She laughed. “We stopped at the same traffic light by the elementary school almost every morning,” she said. “You’d always be lifting your hands, singing joyfully. I thought you were worshiping God. That made me want to join in, even on tough days.”

Praising the Lord, we prayed together, hugged, and enjoyed lunch.

My new friend affirmed that people notice how Jesus’s followers behave, even when we think no one is watching. As we embrace a lifestyle of joyful worship, we can come before our Creator anytime and anywhere. Acknowledging His enduring love and faithfulness, we can enjoy intimate communion with Him and thank Him for His ongoing care (Psalm 100:1-5). Whether we’re singing praises in our cars, praying in public, or spreading God’s love through kind acts, we can inspire others to praise Him. Worshiping God is more than a Sunday morning event.

Hey, welcome again to another daily encouragement from the Our Daily Bread devotional.

Our reading is titled A Lifestyle of Worship, and it was written by So Chi Dixon. As I waited in the breakfast buffet line at a Christian conference center, a group of women entered the dining hall. I smiled, saying hello to a woman who stepped into the line behind me. Returning my greeting, she said, I know you. We scooped scrambled eggs onto our plates and tried to figure out where we'd met, but I was pretty sure she'd mistaken me for someone else. When we returned for lunch, the woman approached me. Do you drive a white car? I shrugged.

I used to, a few years ago. She laughed. We stopped at the same traffic light by the elementary school almost every morning, she said. You'd always be lifting your hands, singing joyfully. I thought you were worshiping God. That made me want to join in, even on the tough days. Praising God, we prayed together, hugged, and enjoyed lunch. My new friend affirmed that people notice how Jesus' followers behave, even when we think no one is watching. As we embrace a lifestyle of joyful worship, we can come before our creator anytime and anywhere. Acknowledging his enduring love and faithfulness, we can enjoy intimate communion with him and thank him for his ongoing care. Whether we're singing praises in our cars, praying in public, or spreading God's love through acts of kindness, we can inspire others to praise his name. Worshipping God is more than a Sunday morning event.

Today's Our Daily Bread devotional scripture reading is Psalm 100. Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness. Come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us and we are his.

We are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever.

His faithfulness continues through all generations. Let's pray. Heavenly Father, you alone are worthy of all our worship, love, and our praise. Help us to come into your presence with joy. You are our creator and you have given us so much to be thankful for. Thank you, Lord. It's in Jesus' name we pray. Amen. Today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread Ministries.
