Worship: What It Is and Why We Do It
July 11, 2014 • Psalm 96 & Isaiah 6:1-7
There's more to worship than showing up at a service once a week. Did you see or hear anything beautiful lately? If so, how did you respond? Maybe you heard a stunning violin solo that brought you to your feet as you applauded enthusiastically and shouted “Bravo!” Maybe you saw a glorious sunset and it made you sigh audibly even as tears of joy formed in the corners of your eyes. Maybe you had a particularly delicious meal that was so good, you asked your server to please compliment the chef. When we experience beauty, a response of appreciation arise in us naturally. This is also where the worship of God comes from. By faith we see the beauty of God and we respond in appreciation, wonder, and joy. Today on Groundwork we study scripture to define what worship is and why we do it.
