The True Meaning Of Worship

9:03 AM

When you think of worship what is the first thing that comes to mind? For me it's church, a worship cd, and perhaps a Hillsong United or Chris Tomlin concert. 
I even think of my Dad saying right before church starts, "it's time to get ready to do our time of worship."
 We often times define worship as something we do only at church (singing during the time of worship) but the simple truth is that worship is more then song - it's that and so much more! 

What exactly is worship?

wor·ship --- the feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity.

" God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:24

Worship can come in...
a cry out to God 

Worship is showing honor to God. We can worship anytime - in church, outside, our rooms, in the car, while we're listening to the radio..... anywhere! Worship just shouldn't be in church, it should be everywhere! We should worship God with all our hearts - not defining it by place or what genre of Christian music we're using to worship God with. 
Worship can be doing quiet time in the morning and just pouring out our hearts to Jesus. Worship can be singing to God by ourselves in
our room with or without music on our cd player or ipod. Worship is simply showing God how much we love him. It shouldn't be a chore or ritual and doesn't even have to be anything huge - you're just showing (and telling) God how much He means to you. 

"Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!" Psalm 95:6
