“Let Us Worship”
Text: 1 Chronicles 16:29 “Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.”
This morning we say that we have come together to worship, but what is true worship. The dictionary give us these definitions.
1.reverent honor and homage paid to God or a sacred personage, or to any object regarded as sacred.
2.formal or ceremonious rendering of such honor and homage: They attended worship this morning.
3.adoring reverence or regard: excessive worship of business success.
4.the object of adoring reverence or regard.
5.(initial capital letter ) British. a title of honor used in addressing or mentioning certain magistrates and others of high rank or station (usually prec. by Your, His, or Her).
–verb (used with object)
6.to render religious reverence and homage to.
7.to feel an adoring reverence or regard for (any person or thing).
–verb (used without object)
8.to render religious reverence and homage, as to a deity.
9.to attend services of divine worship.
10.to feel an adoring reverence or regard.
From these definitions that I have just given to you, you may be wondering who or what am I suppose to worship? I'm so glad that you ask because I have an answer for you. Exodus 34:14 says: “For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.” Psalm 29:2 tells us where or how to worship God. It says: “Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.”
Now that I have showed you who to worship and where and how to worship, I would like us to look more into the how to worship a little more. There are three areas that I want us to look at in this message.
