What is worship? How do we worship? Questions Christians ask. Worship goes beyond praise, worship is total submission and reverence to God. Only God can be worshiped, contrary to that will be idolatry. Worship music often bring Christians to the point of prayer. In worship we lay out our hearts before God, allowing Him to speak to us and letting his will in our lives. Worship is the same as kuabudu in swahii. In Africa, most worship songs are composed of repetitive short lyrical words, western style adopt more of hymn style in their worship music.
Don Moen Explains the difference between
praise and worship
Praise could be more of thanking God for what He has done for you and others, for all His works. Worship can be more about realizing who God is or realizing the worthiness of God regardless of the situation you are in. Worship can mean being able to glorify God for who He is no matter the circumstances or the state you are in because you can approach His throne of grace boldly and proclaim things like God is Almighty, Everlasting, Holy, Loving, Unchanging, etc. Praise comes from experience while worship comes from the heart, while both are rooted in the Holy Spirit's guidance. Not sure if that's right or makes sense totally. But yeah, I like the idea of monologue vs. dialogue. Because in the dialogue, you can have a deeper understanding of what it means to worship in truth and in spirit.
Worship is who you are and praise is what you do. A Christian does not have time for worship because who he/she is every second is worship. Praise is part of worship. What we call the praise and worship team is simply a music team. The Holy Spirit came to fill Believers so that they are in constant worship of God. The condition of your heart determines who you worship NOT what you do. When I am at work I am in worship, when I am eating, whatever I am doing I am in constant worship. Which is why the Bible says that whatever we do, do it as unto to the Lord. Why? because it is worship. Calling the music team the Praise and Worship team relegates worship to an event not a lifestyle. This is why we have Christians who are different people on different days. When worship is a lifestyle, we become consistent and grow in maturity in Christ Jesus.
