What is Worship?

For the last month our church–The Rock Family Worship Center–has been doing a series on worship. Several powerful messages have touched my heart and recentered my focus on God. The series has been titled The Prize and can be viewed here (it doesn’t look like they’re all there yet, but I’m sure they will be soon).

In essence, worship is what we present to God–our sacrifice of praise (Hebrews 13:15). It’s not just about songs, or hymns, or musical scores. It’s what we do when no one is looking, how we think, speak, and live our lives outside of the four walls of the church building.

Dictionary.com defines worship this way:

1. reverent honor and homage paid to God or a sacred personage,or to any object regarded as sacred.
2. formal or ceremonious rendering of such honor and homage:They attended worship this morning.
3. adoring reverence or regard: excessive worship of business success.
4. the object of adoring reverence or regard.

Is what you do Monday through Saturday consistent with your performance on Sunday? Or Sunday through Friday, if you attend services on Saturday? Do you live your everyday life as an act of worship to God?

Just something to think about.

As has become my custom, I’m adding a youtube video of a song we did yesterday. (I know I didn’t last week. I had stayed home with a sick child and forgot.)

Take a listen to this one. I hope you like it.

I’m not going to ask anymore questions to incite a response. My goal of this blog post was to get you to think about your personal relationship with Jesus.

He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever and is waiting for you.

  1. I love how you keep introducing me to new music. I really like this one. It went along with our pastor’s message from yesterday. Keeping the spirit of Worship seems to be like Paul’s instruction to pray without ceasing…and I like that he describes it as reasonable in Romans 12.
