It’s More Than A Song
Read Deut. 6:13 & Hebrews 10:22
The Hebrew word for worship is Shaw Kaw, which means to bow down, to prostrate oneself, to honor, reverence as divine or Supreme Being. The Greek word is Pros-Koo-Neh-O and paints a more vivid picture, it means to kiss the hand towards in token of reverence or kissing like a dog affectionately licks his master’s hand.
We talk often about worship, but do we really know what it is? In the passages for today we see two truths about worship. First, worship is reserved for God alone. Secondly, our worship must be sincere and from the heart.
King David said that if he could make one request, he would ask to dwell in the house of the Lord forever. That sentiment comes from a proper understanding and real experience of worship. There’s nothing better or more fulfilling than worshiping God once we learn how to do it. Here are a few suggestions as to how we can enter worship with God.
