What are some of the most important responses from a heart full of faith in God through Christ Jesus?

Worship has to be close to the top of the list. We come to God in faith and find that our faith was enough to please Him. We realize that He acted first on our behalf because of His great mercy and love toward us. We understand that He simply wants to show us His kindness going forward. We are overwhelmed by His goodness. We fall down and worship Him. We give Him thanks and praise.

Understand, the response of faith to His grace was enough and He is the one that gave us the faith through His love for us. But when you love someone, your heart makes demands of you. Your faith moves you to action on behalf of the one with whom you share this perfect love. Worship comes forth. Worship in spirit and truth comes from your heart, and when it does, the bliss of heaven opens up to us.

What happens when two agree? Worship brings unity. Worship brings the rain of God’s presence. It’s what He wants to do. God is not vain. He is love. When His love is reciprocated through faith, it flows unhampered into our lives.

The LORD make His face(presence) to shine upon you,  and bless you and keep you. The LORD lift up His countenance(favor) to you, be gracious to you and give you peace.

(Ephesians 2:4–10, NKJV) “But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” Eph. 2:4
