True worship is God-centered worship.
People tend to get caught up in where they should worship, what music they should
sing in worship, and how the worship looks to other people. Focusing on things
misses the point.
Jesus tells us that true worshipers will worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24).
This means we worship from a pure heart!
|Worship - Spirit and Truth
|and serving others. It's not limited to one act, but is done properly when the heart and attitude of the
person is in the right place.
Worship and praise are reserved only for God.
Only He is worthy; not any of his servants (Revelation 19:10). We are not to worship saints, prophets,
statues, idols, angels, or any other false gods. We shouldn't worship for the expectation of something in
return, such as a miraculous healing.
Worship is done for God, and God's pleasure alone!
Worship can be public praise to God (Psalm 22:22, 35:18), in a congregational setting, where we can
proclaim through music and praise our adoration and thankfulness to Him and what He has done for us.
True worship is felt inwardly, and then comes out through our actions. "Going through the motions" out of
obligation is unpleasing to God, and is done completely in vain. He can see through all the hypocrisy, and
He hates heartless worship (Amos 5:21-24).
