But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. John 4:23
Anything you do that brings pleasure to God is an act of worship.
We listen to music and dance for fun, entertainment or in appreciation to art. Some people use it as a coping mechanism to release stress, to refocus, to reenergize and even to fit in with our friends and environment.
According to bible scholars, the derivative of the word proskuneo are prós (towards) and kyneo (to kiss). This is to say that we kiss God. Historically, Egyptian reliefs depict worshipers with outstretched hands blowing a kiss to their deity.
Proskuneo: I go down on my knees to, do obeisance to, worship.
We’ve been taught to believe that singing is worship, but it is only a form of worship. We worship using instruments, dancing, singing and any other form of art which reverences and exalts God. In the Greek, the bible says that worship to God is proskuneó. In the greek the word for dog is kyon, and they say that to worship is to act as a dog acts when they see their master. The run towards them, wiggle their tails in excitement, and come closer to them. In a sense our worship to God is to be like a dog is to their master.
When you think about God are you drawn towards Him? Do you chase after him like a puppy running after his master? The Lord delights in His children, and that means you!
Father God you are wonderful, thank you Lord Jesus for your grace and mercy. Thank you for access to your throne of mercy. I pray that you would show us your glory. May we raise a hallelujah in the presence of our enemies! May nothing prevent us from worshipping you Jesus. I pray for deliverance, victory and breakthrough as we seek to worship you in Spirit and in Truth. In Jesus name, Amen.
