Worship Is…


Worship is far more than singing for a few minutes on Sunday mornings. Worship goes far beyond a tune and some words. It goes deeper than a melody. It spans longer than a radio hit. Worship is our response to God’s revelation of who He is and what He has done for us, is doing for us and will do for us. Reading though Paul and Peter’s letters gives tangible evidence that worship is about more than song. It’s about gratitude and thankfulness. It’s about imitation and service towards one another. It’s about unity and togetherness. It’s about showing grace and mercy because of the grace and mercy shown towards us.  It’s about giving in our poverty, loving in our anger and serving in our pride.
