The Power of Worship

As Christians, we have a toolbox that allows us to engage and interact with various things. We interact with each other through fellowship—being part of youth groups, attending prayer sessions, and learning more about the bible through VBS programs, etc….; However, this toolbox was also designed for us to interact with our maker…ironic, isn’t it? 


Sometimes, it can be easy to discredit the tools found in our toolbox because we see the same tools used all the time. A great example of this is worship: every Sunday you go to church engulfed in the routine of praise and worship, but you aren’t truly familiar with the power that comes with it. It’s ok—we have all been there. That being said, once the power of worship is learned, routine becomes fascination, and what you once did because everyone else was, becomes an internal transformative experience that you wouldn’t trade for anything. 


So, what exactly is worship? Google eloquently defines it as: “the feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity.” In the context of Christianity, the only deity worthy of our worship is God. Focusing on the words feeling and expression allow us to see that worship is more than lifting your hands and singing “How Great is Our God”. Having a feeling towards someone conveys an internal belief toward that individual—and in this case, a feeling of reverence suggests that you believe this individual has done something or embodies a level of esteem that requires you to show them how much you respect and appreciate them. Now think about this in the realms of God! Think about who He is and how much He has done for us…it would probably take you more than 10 lifetimes to state each thing He has done—isn't that amazing?


In John 4:21-24, Jesus tells a woman that a time will come when we will not have to go to a temple to worship God. He explains, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father…But 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.” (John 4:21-24). This notion of worshiping God not only in spirit but in truth further affirms that worship is much more than an action. It is a time when we as believers have the opportunity to connect with our Father spiritually and express our reverence and respect to him through offering up ourselves as a living sacrifice for Him to use us in whatever way pleases Him. What that way may be for you, I will never know; however, what I do know is that the more you worship, the more He reveals, and the more you walk directly on the path He has set for you—this is the power of worship.
