The simplest definition of worship is to “ascribe worth. “Worship can be more completely defined as “showing respect, love, reverence, or adoration. True worship is perfectly defined and described in Romans 12:1-2: “I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable, or well pleasing and perfect.”
There are several modes of worship and ways to minister to the Lord. Songs and music do not primarily categorize what worship is, even though they may be included but worship is far more than singing a song. It is an offering, a sense of more of God, and experiencing the glory of His presence. When you give tithes, seeds or a helping hand to a cause of God is a mode of worship. Prayer, fasting intercession and thanksgiving are also another essential means of a true worship.
True worship also is in spirit and truth. John 4 : 23 – 24 … “The hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”
True worship comes only from spirits made alive and sensitive by the quickening of the Spirit of God. It is God’s Spirit that ignites and energizes our spirit for true worship.
There are times I may not want to sing or even voice out any melody of praise, I just want to stay quiet and minister to the Lord from within, and I will just there in God’s presence for hours and at times a whole day. At this point, so many divine realities and revelation are transported to me. This is what it means to have special mode of worship in spirit and in truth. True worship cannot exist without the Word; for this is the fundamental requirement and true worship must be “in spirit,” that is, engaging the whole heart. GRACE BE MULTIPLIED TO YOU!
