How Do You Worship God? Part 2

(This is a continuation of my most recently posted blog article on how to worship the Lord.)  Here are additional ways to worship God:

  • Worship God in the assembly while the singers sing and the musicians play their instruments (2 Chronicles 29:28)
  • Sing praises to God with joy and bow down and worship Him.  (2 Chronicles 29:30)  Joy is an essential component of worship!  Bowing down in worship is a sign of humbling ourselves before the Lord, out of respect and reverence.
  • Worship the Lord with reverence and rejoice with trembling.  (Psalm 2:11 NKJV)  Worship includes reverence (respect, admiration, awe, and astonishment) as well as celebration, cheer, and joy with trembling.  The trembling is an outward manifestation of the reverence of the worshipper.
  • Worship the Lord and glorify His Name.  (Psalm 86:9)  Glorify means to adore, exalt, elevate, praise, or venerate.  When we elevate and exalt the Name of Jesus, we are partaking in worship.
  • Worship at Jesus’ feet (Matthew 28:9)
  • True worshippers worship the Father in spirit and in truth (John 4:23)
  • God is spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.  (John 4:24 NKJV)
  • Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.  (Romans 12:1 NKJV)  Offering your entire life for service and all that you do to the Lord as an offering is worship!

Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy; For ALL THE NATIONS WILL COME AND WORSHIP BEFORE YOU, FOR YOUR RIGHTEOUS ACTS HAVE BEEN REVEALED.  (Rev 15:4 NKJV)

There are a number of ways to worship God!  Here are several mentioned in the Bible:

  • Bow low and worship God (Genesis 24:26, 48; 47:31; Exodus 4:31; 12:27; 34:8; Judges 7:15)
  • Arise and worship (Exodus 33:10)
  • Arise early in the morning and worship (1 Samuel 1:19)
  • Go to the house of the Lord and worship (2 Samuel 12:20; 2 Chron. 29:20)
  • Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His Name.  Worship the Lord in holy array.  (1 Chronicles 16:29; Psalm 29:2; 96:9)  Ascribe means to credit someone with something they deserve; to give recognition, acknowledgment, tribute, or acclaim.  Glory means splendor, beauty, wonder, brilliance, fame, praise, success, or magnificence.  So this verse instructs us to give the Lord recognition and acclaim because He deserves to receive it due to His splendor, beauty, brilliance, and wonderful attributes.  We’re to offer our worship to the Lord in beautiful and holy clothing and finery!
  • Bow down with your face to the ground and worship (2 Chronicles 7:3; 20:18; Nehemiah 8:6)
  • Worship and give praise to the Lord saying, “Truly He is good, truly His lovingkindness is everlasting.”  (2 Chronicles 7:3)  Worship is essentially acknowledging all of God’s beautiful qualities and personality traits!  When we acknowledge God’s righteousness, power, and holiness, and marvel in His presence—that is worship!
