Secular Definition of Worship: The feeling or expression of reverence and
adoration for a deity.
Biblical Definition of Worship:
Romans 12:1 (ESV) I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of
God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, HOLY and ACCEPTABLE to God, which is your spiritual worship.
Worship is not an action. It is a lifestyle!
Why Do We Worship?
1. It nourishes our soul.
2. God commands it.

The first 4 commandments – the ones Jesus himself declared as the
greatest – these 4 deal with Worship:
 Love the Lord your God
 Make NO Idols
 Be careful and Honorable with God’s name
 Give God HIS time
3. Worship adjusts our attitude.

Psalm 16:11 (ESV) You make known to me the path of life; in your
presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures
4. Jesus taught us to
o Our Father who art in heaven “Hallowed be Your Name”.
5. Our natural response to God’s greatness.
