So what exactly is worship?? We go to worship services. We say that we worship God. But is what we are doing what God is wanting.
Somehow it leads me back to have we were saved in the first place. We didn’t have to take care of things first…we didn’t have to “perfect” first…we didn’t have to wait until the time was right. He came to us, offered us eternal life, and we accepted it. Right there and then…no waiting and no preparation on our part. It was because of what God had already done!
Worship is an expression made to God. It can be formal (with others) or it can be private. Worship can be music, although it doesn’t have to be. Worship can be speech, although it doesn’t have to be. Worship can be drama, although it doesn’t have to be. Worship can be the lifting of hands to God, although it doesn’t have to be.
It is that expression we make to God–directly from the heart. The one thing it is NOT — it is never boastful or showy…it does not draw attention to ourselves…only to God!
Only God knows if it is real. Sometimes it is all of these things–but only if it comes from the heart.
