What is True Worship?

What is WorshipWorship isn’t about a style of music. It is more than singing songs.

It is where as far as you are concerned, the only people involved are you and God. You are not concerned about others watching you.

In the previous verses of this chapter, we learned who we are to worship. Jesus, the only one who was worthy to come and take the scroll out of the right hand of the Father (vv. 1-7). Now we are going to learn how to worship (vv. 8-14):

      1.   We worship God by expressing thanks for the shed blood of Jesus (v. 9).

      2.   We worship with loud voices (vv. 11-12).

      3.   We worship all of creation (v. 13)

      4.   We worship in unity (v. 14).


I do not want my worship to ever be centered around ritual but to be centered on the cross, and the blood of Jesus Christ. Jesus, and he alone is worthy of my praise yesterday, today, and forever.
