Worshipped God

Acts 16:14 KJV

[14] And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us : whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.

A solemn assembly the worshippers of God must have, if possible, upon the sabbath day. If we have not synagogues, we must be thankful for more private places, and resort to them; not forsaking the assembling together, as our opportunities are.

Among the hearers of Paul was a woman, named Lydia. She had an honest calling, which the historian notices to her praise. Yet though she had a calling to mind, she found time to improve advantages for her soul. It will not excuse us from religious duties, to say, We have a trade to mind; for have not we also a God to serve, and souls to look after?

Our faith does not call us from our business in the world, but directs us in it. Pride, prejudice, and sin shut out the truths of God, till his grace makes way for them into the understanding and affections; and the Lord alone can open the heart to receive and believe his word. We must believe in Jesus Christ; there is no coming to God as a Father, but by the Son as Mediator.

- Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary (Public Domain)

Praise the Lord and worship Him, a song prepare; While we enter joyfully the house of prayer; Praise the Lord, and honor Him who guards our way, Watching o’er us tenderly by night and day.

Refrain: Praise Him, praise Him, join the loud acclaim, Praise Him, praise Him, bless His holy name; Ever kind and merciful in all His ways, He alone is worthy to receive our praise.

Praise Him in His majesty and strength arrayed; Praise Him in the firmament His hands have made; In our lives acknowledge Him the King of kings. Then in safety we may dwell beneath His wings.

Praise Him in His righteousness, the Holy One; Spread abroad the wondrous work that He hath done; Through His perfect sacrifice the world is blest. Whosoever will, may come to Him and rest.
