“Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship”(NIV).
This “kind” of worship is a 24/7 kind. It is a worship that one must be engaged in prior to darkening the doors of the church building on Sunday or any other time. This is the kind of worship that the Samaritan woman could have done in the “now” time that Jesus spoke of. This is the kind of worship that must be active in our lives in order for our Sunday assembly acts to be acceptable to God. This is the kind of worship that cannot be pigeon holed into one, two, or three hours each week. It is what we have been raised into newness of life to do (Romans 6:3,4)!
Are you worshipping right now?

Yes, that is because when we as Christians are living out our faith it becomes our new lifestyle.

And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

I truly do not get the mindset that we just worship God while we are assembled in our Church buildings. Worship is not limited to 5 acts. Worship is living my life daily, walking in the light as He is the light. I lay my life aside that I might be a servant for Jesus Christ, a slave to Him from a heart of perfect love that cast away fear.

The New Testament also commands believers to be pure in speech by controlling their tongues:“With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men who are made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things should not be this way”(James 3:9-10). Christians should honor the purpose of speech by using our mouths to praise God and leading others to obey the Lord through faith in Jesus Christ. Every word we speak should be “gracious” and “seasoned with salt”(Col. 4:6).

“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to You, LORD, my rock and my Redeemer”(Psalm 19:14).

Ephesians 4:29-32
29Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

30And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

31Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

32And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

Colossians 4:6
Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

Sir, you have a nasty mouth. One not of a Christian.

This kind of worship is a 24/7 kind. Paul did not mean we only present our bodies as a living sacrifice when we gather together. This is something we are to do all of the time. It is holy and acceptable to God, which is our spiritual worship.

Amen to every passage you give.

Can you answer the question now?

If everything is worship then that include defecating, right?

Lets see so While Abraham was going along on his way to sacrifice Issac he was in worship? Why do you think he told the helper to stay here for we will go up there to worship?

Are we only in Christ when we go to the worship service and then out of Christ when we go to our homes or places of work?

12 Therefore, 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.

How do we do that? Must we have an altar ie special place of worship to do that?

Or is it possible that this refers to living a lifestyle that pleases God?

Amen to the passage.

Eating chocolate ice cream on Monday is just as much worship as eating the Lord's Supper on Sunday.
