What Is Worship?

What first comes to mind when you hear the word worship? Is it music? Is it an emotional experience? Is it a lofty task that you feel you can almost never live up to? There are many ways in which we think about worship, whether they are rightly informed or not.
Let’s look at what Scripture has to say about worship.

Wisdom & Happiness

It seems that everyone is seeking happiness. We think that a new job, a new home, living in a new city… all these things and more will bring happiness. This kind of happiness is fleeting; it won’t last. Situations change, possessions wear out. People we once desired to be around now get on our nerves. Scripture tells us that the eternal happiness that every person seeks only comes from the wisdom that God provides.

What Do I Do?

Every day we are confronted with issues and circumstances that cause us to ask, “What do I do now?” Having to make hard decisions is common in this fallen world. As we find ourselves paralyzed by the thought of making a bad decision, we can rely on truths from Scripture for guidance.

Our Source of True Love

“Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him. Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, “Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?” 23 Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. 24 Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me.”
John 14:21-24
