Worship

We struggle for the best definition or expression of all that is contained in the word “worship.” “Zondervan’s Pictorial Bible Dictionary” defines it as follows: “The honor, reverence, and homage paid to superior beings or powers, whether men, angels, or God.” It continues: “When given to God, worship involves an acknowledgement of Divine perfections. It may express itself in the form of direct address, as in adoration or thanksgiving, or in service to God; and may be private or public… Worship presupposes that God is, that He can be known by man, and that His perfections set Him far above man.”

If all that seems too technical, your heart will guide you in expressing your love and adoration of the Lord. As the Scotsman said: “It’s better felt that telt.”

Worship the Lord in song. Praise Him in some melody that tells of His love and power. You say you can’t carry a tune? Then get alone and make a joyful noise to the Lord.

Worship the Lord through prayer. Tell Him how much He means to you, Worship the Lord in thanksgiving. Count your blessings and remember that every good gift comes down from above. We have nothing other than what has been provided by our Heavenly Father.

Worship the Lord in your conversation. While others take His name in vain, exalt God at every opportunity. Others will take notice.

Worship the Lord with a righteous and holy life. God will be pleased and you will be blessed. “Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.”
