Say The Word: Worship

Worship, noun: the action of expressing homage to God because he is worthy. Worship includes, but is in no way limited to, adoration, thanksgiving, prayer (Note 1), sacrificial offerings, the making of vows, and formal corporate worship. As a verb, worship means to express praise or thanksgiving.

Worship is the appropriate human response to the magnificent glory of God: On the Sabbaths and New Moons the people of the land are to worship in the presence of the Lord at the entrance of that gateway. Ezekiel 46:3 NIV

So what does worship look like in our lives? In Romans 12:1-2, the Apostle Paul provides guidance: Brothers and sisters, in view of all we have just shared about God’s compassion, I encourage you to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, dedicated to God and pleasing to him. This kind of worship is appropriate for you. Don’t become like the people of this world. Instead, change the way you think. Then you will always be able to determine what God really wants—what is good, pleasing, and perfect. Romans 12:1-2 NOG

We should live in the present, as far as possible, like we will live in the future. If we are going to be holy in heaven, we should be holy now. If we are going to be loving in heaven, we should be loving now. And, if we are going to worship God in heaven, we should worship God now. Let the entirety of our lives be an act of worship unto the Lord.

On this Sabbath, then, let us follow the example of the angels in Heaven: All the angels stood around the throne, and along with the elders and the four living creatures they fell facedown before the throne and worshipped God, saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength be to our God forever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 7:11-12 HCSB

Note 1: Do not reduce your prayers to words, but rather make the totality of your life a prayer to God. Isaac of Syria (also Isaac of Nineveh) (613 – 700 AD)
