THEONLYWAYTOWORSHIPGOD
 By M.G. Bueno
Isa 1:10Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of ourGod, ye people of Gomorrah.Isa 1:13Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with;
it is
iniquity, eventhe solemnmeeting.Isa 1:16Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mineeyes; cease to do evil;Isa 1:17Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless,plead for the widow.Isa 1:18Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be asscarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall beas wool.In these verses, God was dealing with Israel, the chosen people of God. He said, Bring nomore vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons andsabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemnmeetings.God was not satisfied with their worship, all of their actions were just a show and theirheart was far from him. He said to them, I’m tired of your ceremonies, you come tome with your animal sacrifices, but you are not changed, sin is still reigning in yourlife. Here, God is teaching his people the correct way to worship Him. Our way of  worship should be according to way God wants to be worshipped, and not justsomething that we made up or modified in our mind. It has to be according to his Word.

God wants true worship from his people. The Bible said in JOHN 4 that God is a spirit,and we must worshiphim in spirit and truth. You cannot worship God halfheartedly, you cannot worship God with unrepented sin in your life. Before you can truly  worship God, you must first be born again, you must first become a new creature.The old things must first pass away in your life, and become new in God thru JesusChrist.
1Ti 2:8
I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrathand doubting.1Ti 2:9In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, withshamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; When the people come together in worship to God, he’s telling us that anger and wrathshould not be allowed in the place of worship as well as doubt. You don’t think aboutanything that makes you angry during worship. You don’t pray a curse against your brothers or against your enemies during worship. There should be no negativethoughts, or thoughts that makes you angry during worship. These things must first be repented of before we come before God, as the bible teaches us in Matthew.
Mat 5:23
Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy  brotherhath ought againstthee;Mat 5:24Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy  brother, and then come andoffer thy gift.The whole worship issupposeto be centered and focused upon God.
Psa 24:3
Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?Psa 24:4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soulunto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.Psa 24:5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the Godof his salvation.The Bible says thatobedience is better than sacrifice.
1Sa 15:22
And Samuel said, Hath the LORD
as great 
delight in burnt offerings andsacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obe
is
better thansacrifice,
and 
to hearken than the fat of rams. And so God told them, Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil. God was saying, whatever sin that you have before you come to worship me, make it right, repent from yoursins. What sins?The bible said that If you hate your brother, you are a murderer. If you look on a womanand desire to have her in your heart, you have already committed adultery. And the bible tells us that no murdereror adulterer will inherit the kingdom of God.

He said, Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless,plead for the widow. God said, “What’s the purpose of you coming before me, when your heart is not right; when you despise my corrections, when you don’t do what Icommand you to do. When you will not surrender your life to me, when you fightagainst my work? All of these are works of the flesh, signs of the unregeneratedperson. Whosoever committeth sin is a servant of sin and sin is the transgression of God’s commandment.Psa 119:9 Wherewithal shall a young man or woman cleanse his way? by taking heed
thereto
according to thy word.Psa 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.These verses tells us that the word of God will help us get rid of the sinning problem inour life, so that our worship to God maybe in accordance with His Spirit and theTruth of His Word.Isa 1:18Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be asscarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall beas wool.Here we can see the gentleness of God in his word. God does not just ignore people intheir sin, but God cares about people and what they’re going thru. Here God himself is making the invitation for us to come unto him. He did not continue to rebuke thepeople of Israel about their sins, but now he seeks to make a reconcialiation withthem. Now, he’s trying to win them back to him. That’s just like our God.God has always been a restorer. God doesn’t throw people out. Throughout the agesGod has always been gracious and merciful to man. God has always provided a plan toreconcile man back to him. When the whole universe was in total chaos and darkness, he commanded the light toshine and began to put things in their rightful place. When Adam and Eve sinnedagainst God, he provided for them animal skins to cover their nakedness, but most of allthe blood of that animal to sacrifice for the forgiveness of their sins. When the world wasflooded because of the sins of mankind, he provided an ark to save what was left of theearth and Noah and his family. God provided a ram to Abraham to be sacrificed insteadof his son Isaac. And now in our Bible reading he promised to his people, “Though yoursins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow.” Now God once more is providing for youand I something that is powerful and able to effectivelywash us from all our sins.In these verses is written one of the prophecies of Christ blood sacrifice for the whole world on calvary. When this was written in the book of Isaiah he’s not talking about the blood of the animals,because inHeb 10:4For
it is
not possiblethat the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.God was looking forward to the day when Jesus Christ his Son would die once and for allfor the sins of the whole world. For without the shedding of blood there is noremission or forgiveness of sin. But Christ’s sacrifice did not only forgive sins but washed sins away by his blood. It has the power to remove that disease of sin withinus that causes us to sin.
