Worship

Sermon Notes
Mark 15:38-39, Revelation 4

 

 

Definition of Worship: Worship is the human response to the divine initiative.
Worship is adoration, praise, and thanksgiving directed towards God. Worship must be a priority in our lives. Foster

 

According to N.T. Wright, worship allows us to get a glimpse of God’s dimension.
Worship is defined as acknowledging the worth of someone. It is celebrating, praising, and recognizing God.

 

“In worship people of God acknowledge God present in the world and in their lives. As we respond to God’s redemptive action in Christ we are transformed and renewed. Worship equips us for God’s service.” Presbyterian Book of Order
