Interestingly, man does not really need to be told to worship. It is in his nature to do so. He will always worship something or someone and to some extent, we turn to resemble whatever we worship.
WHAT IS TRUE WORSHIP
True worship is the highest form of worship. It must be God-centered and led by God otherwise it will be out of obligation and completely vain. To maximize result in true worship, it must be in spirit and in truth (Jn 4:24), acknowledging God’s power and glory in complete obedience to His word. The tendency of worship in spirit and in truth is legalism while the reverse is lawless and merely lip-service.
WAYS TO WORSHIP
It all begins with motivation followed by manner, will, or mind (1 Cor.2:16) in form of Servanthood, Submission, and physical response which could be expressed in several ways:
- To kneel to bless God as in the case of - Ps 72:12-15
