What do you think of when you think of worship? What is worship like for you in your church? In your community?
Love - In worship, understand that God is Love. What God has done for us, he has done in love. When we worship, we must love God by giving freely of ourselves as he has given freely to us.
Adoration - What has God done for us? Sometimes, we ask "What has God done for me lately?" But how can we say that of God, who has given us everything we have? God's breath runs through us, and we have to adore him because of that.
Blessed - God has blessed us with so much. We bless God back in our worship.
Levels of Worship
Pho has basic ingredients that make it pho. There's noodles, soup, meat, cilantro, etc. Take away one ingredient, and it's no longer pho. Likewise, worship can't exist without all three levels of worship. So what do these levels mean?
Think of it in terms of being in a relationship
Praise - Talking to God. You let God know how you feel about him.
Worship - Like that level where you fall in love.
Glory - You really feel God. No words are necessary. You are in God and God is in you.
Sometimes, we don't know what to say to God. Let God move through you. Let him speak through you.
We sing in worship, but singing isn't the only way to worship God. We can praise him in dance, in words, or in any of the work we do and create. Worship isn't just one action. Worship is a lifestyle. Worship is a taste of what our life will be like in Heaven.
