What is Worship?

I often roll my eyes at church videos, but this one is pretty much dead on.

Here are my take home points:

  • Back to theĀ warm fuzzy issue. Worship is not about me and what I get out of it. It’s about what I give.
  • I am so guilty of not “getting into worship” simply because I don’t like the songs. (I do believe that worship songs should be QUALITY songs… but that’s for another post.)
  • Worship is not about the music at all. The music is a medium used to get to worship, but it shouldn’t be the main focus.
  • Worship shouldn’t be sugarcoated. If you just raise your hands to Jesus, all will be well. I appreciate that the makers of this video acknowledged the heartache and struggle that life brings. Part of worship is bringing all that gunk to Jesus. Some days that’s the best worship I can bring Him.
  • At the cross we SHUT UP. Well put.
  • And at the end of it all, just look at Jesus. Gaze at Him. I never thought of worship that way. I like that visual.

  1. Very cool.

    Our worship leader is a little bit in love with Isaiah 6:1-7, but I can’t blame him. It’s one of my favorite images of worship in scripture.

    “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”

  2. I really like the thought that taking all of our gunk to Jesus is worship as well. You might enjoy reading my current post, Jamie. It’s called “Carol Your Way to Worship”. Happy December!
