Worthship - Who is Worthy of Your Worship? Special Guest: Rev. Kaye Kready
The English word for worship is from the old English word worthship. That is how worship was first explained to me and it has stuck with me. It is recognizing the Lord’s worthiness to receive our esteem, honor, praise - our worship. Worship is recognizing & honoring who He is - his character and attributes.
Worship is heartfelt adoration towards the Lord that can be expressed in silence, song, loud praise, or quiet prayer; it can be expressed in so many different ways. It can be done any time and any where and should be done throughout your day.
Here is an example: during a stressful situation, stop and worship Him for being the Prince of Peace and thank Him for bringing peace in your live.

John 4:23-24 tells us that true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; which means spirit to spirit and with not superficial words or actions. We need to approach God with complete openness with our spirits being guided by the Holy Spirit. True worship must be according to His word in response to the truth that is revealed in the Son and received through the Holy Spirit.
With worship comes gratitude, thanksgiving, and joy. When we worship, our hearts and spirits connect with God’s Spirit. In that connectedness, in His presence, we find fullness of joy. Worship is a place of peace, rest, joy and exhilaration. As we worship, we are responding with love towards Him because He first loved us.
I do not consider myself a "worship expert," but I do love to worship God; live in that place of peace in Him and be filled with fullness of joy in His presence.
“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.” Or in other words give it a try.
