Spirit without truth leads to a shallow and overly emotional experience like a “high”. As soon as the emotion wears off, so does the worship.
There must be an equal amount of both, spirit and truth to be satisfying and God honoring.
We mentioned earlier that singing isn’t the only way to worship.
But when we study the word “worship” we find out it is an action word.
The Hebrew term for worship literally means “to bow self down”
The Greek means “to kiss towards” (to blow a kiss).
Worship is not a passive word, it’s not something that we do passively. Worship requires an action on our part.
Numerous times the word worship is preceded by the words “fell down, falling down, feel to the ground”.
Worship originates from the heart but it can’t only BE heart. Heart is passive.
