Have you ever wondered about certain English words we use regularly? I have, and one that came to mind this week was “worship”. We use it to describe our time in church but it is also used by the world in relation to athletes, movie stars, and entertainers of all types. We also hear about certain groups worshiping idols or even Satan.
The Hebrew word for worship is “Schach” which means to bow down. Worship come from the old english “weordscipe” meaning worthiness or worth. Yes we Worship the God of the universe and His Son Jesus. Our worship is based on worthiness, respect, fear, homage or grateful submission to God.
Psalm 100:1 – 5
- Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
- Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing
- Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture,
- Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise, Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
- For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.
Reasons to worship are praise and thankfulness. Our God is worthy of all our praise and adoration. There is no one or no thing that deserves worship except our God and Jesus Christ his Son. Our society has seen fit to worship so many people and inanimate objects that do not deserve worship. Let us direct our worship to the one and only true God and Father of mankind.
- saying with a loud voice “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.
Psalm 99: 5
- Exalt the Lord our God, And worship at His footstool—He is Holy. So my encouragement is that we gather on Sunday to follow the direction of our Savior Jesus Christ and gather for Breaking of Bread followed by a “Worship” service where we can, in fellowship, Worship our Lord and Savior.
