Worship and Church Part 1
If you were to miss the first part of a Sunday’s Church service, what would you say you have missed? The Worship?
Are worship and Church music the same thing? Is worship just the first part of a typical Sunday service or does it encompass a much larger area of our time with God?
In fact, how should we distinguish between such words as ‘worship’, ‘praise’, ‘thanksgiving’, or even ‘prayer’? Although these words are used often, there is much depth into each one of them and each have a unique meaning and practical aspect.
Let’s stay with the term ‘worship’ for now. Is worship something to be done merely corporately or is it as equally personal, to be done in the privacy of our own lives and times of ‘devotion’?
Let me conclude for now with another challenging question: is worship something that the Body of Christ does unto the Lord or does God, Himself, play a big role in it and somehow initiate it?
Please share any thought/comments and we will continue on with this fantastic and important topic…
