What is Worship? Worship is the expression of adoration for God. Most people associate worship as being a joyful noise to the Lord God through song either sung or played. While it is true that this a part of worship, it goes much deeper than that. Worship is any type of communication with God. Singing, Playing an instrument, and Interpretive Dance are only a small part of Worship. Worship is sharing the Word, Living the Word, Speaking with God in Prayer, Studying the Word, and Application of the Word are integral parts of total Worship. This is What we do.
Exploring types of worship, one finds the easiest to do is also the hardest. That is reading and understanding God’s written Word. We will dig into the Scripture to share, find, and apply God’s Word in our lives today. this is a place where we do not judge but we may challenge and cause a conviction in your life. It is ok to disagree but examination of the heart and mind is needed. God does not tell us to solely listen to our hearts, we are corrupt beings, but heed the Word He gives and accept Him into our hearts to clean them.
We are to worship God only. Even His Son, the personification of the Word, worshipped Him. When Jesus was tempted by Satan, He told him that we are to worship God alone and no other. The problem is that people tend to worship Jesus and have forgotten to worship God. That is, they worship the man and the teachings forgetting that He is God’s Word, the Truth, in the flesh that was sent to return people to God, not to be worshipped Himself.
There are many aspects to Worship but there is also the Great Commission work which we must abide by. This world is in trouble and if we do not stay in His Word we will fail. Living in constant adoration through the many facets of Worship and conducting ourselves as Christ showed us will show others and hopefully bring them to Christ.
We have a loving and caring God who teaches us to love and care for others but we should not forget that God is also jealous and will judge as He deems fit. Without Christ is our lives we are doomed but following Christ and His commands we will have a place at the great table. One of the hardest things to do as a Christian is to live in this world while learning how to show God’s Love through understanding and sharing His Word. We must have courage and strength but remember that all this comes from the Lord.
