Worship

Choir Note-Sunday, March 10, 2013

Pastor mentioned last Sunday night that if you run the references (and even the very definition) of the word worship in the Scripture, you find that it is always associated with humility. It is a humbling, lowering of self and an acknowledgment of the authority and power of another. Or, it is demonstrating the worth of another by humbling oneself.

The word worship comes from an old English word that portrayed the idea of worth-ship. The sovereign would enter the room and everyone, in a sense, worshiped him or her. They bowed.

Everyone knew who was king not by what the king did but by how his subjects worshiped him.

A truly humble and worshipful heart not only brings glory to God, nor is it only fulfilling our design as humans. Both are true, but more than that, worship in a church setting has the potential to let others see who matters in our hearts. Worship in church is a way to show the worth of God. As His subjects, who is getting the glory in our church services?

Worship can be accomplished in many ways, but one in particular is through music. When you sing, are you the one glorified, or will others see the King by our humble bowing? God doesn’t have to prove Himself in order to be known. Maybe He just needs some more devoted worshipers.
