15 Dec What is Worship?
Hebrews 13:15–16 – “Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”
If you wanted to know what worship is, it mainly can be summed up in two things – adoration and action. Declaring God and doing good.
In other words, it’s our relationship with God that affects our relationship with others. The meaning of holy is that we’re set apart and we show others this holiness, by the power of the Holy Spirit, by loving, having compassion, and helping others around us.
God is the first and ultimate worshipper and, because we’re made in His image and likeness, we can look to Him for the ultimate example as the perfect worshipper. God is continually worshipping, which entails putting another in priority, prominence, and preeminence. Before looking out at the world and how they worship, we need to look up and how He worships.
Have you ever thought about the fact that God is also a worshipper? What can we learn from Him as we learn more about worship?
