Sundays are to be honoured and hallowed unto God. Many people separate this special, holy day to do the things of God. They go to church in the morning, and when they come back in the afternoon, they continue worshipping God all through the day.
Worshipping God, however, should not be limited to Sundays. It should be something we do every day with our lives. Worshipping God keeps you connected to him. You set your atmosphere on fire for God when you worship God. There are different ways we can worship God.
For many people, listening to any kind of music is what they do on a daily basis. They just enjoy it as they go through their daily activities.
