1 Chronicles 16:23-36

The Awe and Wonder of Our God

How can one possibly describe or define what it means to worship? Throughout Scripture, we see evidence of the importance and value to “worship” God. Webster's Dictionary defines worship as “to adore, idolize, esteem worthy, reverence, and homage.” Yet truly defining worship proves more difficult because it is both an attitude and an act.

I think of my relationship to my family and how I love and care for them. How can I possibly define my love for my family without “living it out” through action and feeling? I believe the same is true in our worship of our Almighty God. It is best evidenced and practiced through action, feeling, and discipline. Take a few minutes and read this beautiful passage from 1 Chronicles, taking time to adore, reverence, and worship our amazing God.
