The Right Way To Worship

AAB

Faith has come to ignite different ways of worship in Christianity. But the question is how amazing do people worship God differently ? Different views are being shared as some has their worship loud and expressive. Others show signs like kneeling singing praise songs,hymnal songs, screaming, dancing, meditating and many other ways. Perhaps the setting of worship also influences how we worship, some worship in beautiful churches, bedrooms, park, store fronts etc. But there are basis of where worship lays in reality. For some, preaching is the centerpiece of worship, for others it’s only a minor part.

Are there right and wrong ways to worship? Certainly. But what makes worship right or wrong is not your posture, your music, or whether you raise your hands, clap your hands, or fold your hands. When a woman asked Jesus about different ways of worshiping, Jesus replied, “A time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth” (John 4:23 ).

Worshiping “in spirit” means that you mean it; that you’re worshiping inside out, not just going through the motions.

Worshiping “in truth” means that you’re worshiping the true God and not some idol you’ve created. And it means you’re being truthful with your words and thoughts that you bring to worship; you’re not trying to put on a religious act to impress someone.

Throughout history, Christians have agreed that several key elements are important in worship:

1) Praise. Giving honor and glory to God with words, songs or art.

2) Confession. Worship means acknowledging who God is (holy and good) and who we are (not so holy and not so good) in relation to him. This means admitting and confessing our sin, and accepting God’s forgiveness.

3) Prayer. In worship, we speak directly to God about what’s on our minds (our needs and the needs of others) and what’s on God’s mind (his desire for love and justice and redemption in the world).

4) Hearing God’s Word. This means reading the Scripture. It also means listening for what God is saying to you through the music, the sermon and everything that happens in worship.

5) Remembering Christ’s sacrifice. This is most clearly done by taking Communion. Thinking about how God saved us from sin is at the very center of our worship.

6) Responding to God’s love. Worship doesn’t end when the service is over. Worship means we leave the service so aware of God’s greatness that we find ways to obey and honor and serve him throughout the week.
