more than just music.
We often think of worship as singing, but it’s so much more than that!
As we see modeled in scripture, worship is giving adoration or reverence to God. Abraham fell on his face before the Lord (Genesis 17:3), Moses bowed (Exodus 34:8), Solomon stretched out his hands (1 Kings 8:54), David danced (2 Samuel 6:14), and even Jesus worshiped God (Luke 4:8) and sang hymns (Mark 14:26).
We use musical worship to sing together and extend our praise to God for what He has already done and will continue to do in our lives. But, true worship is way more than that. It is a lifestyle of adoration for what God has done and involves the attitude of our heart (Jeremiah 17:10, Psalm 139:1).
Not Just something we do...
it's a heart-posture!
We are all worshiping something with our thoughts, actions and motives. As believers in Christ, we get to worship God in all areas of our lives...not just on Sundays! We worship God by being obedient to what He has called us to in our workplace, in our neighborhoods and in our families. We worship by giving of our finances, giving of our time, and giving of our hearts by seeking God even when we don’t feel like it.
Any time we do something with a submissive heart postured towards God, that’s worship! And when we worship God seven days a week, it makes our time of corporate worship even more rich and meaningful. When we come into the house of God with his praises already on our lips it allows us to more readily join in and connect with congregational music and worship freely.
