Praise and Worship
We cannot help but to be thankful for the grace and goodness of Jesus! It is because of this that we lift our voices together to exalt His name and bring Him glory. It is our joy to express our love for the Lord with passionate and whole-hearted worship that creates an atmosphere in which the body of Christ can experience the fullness of God's love.
What is praise?
Praise is the joyful recounting of all God has done for us. When we sing to Him, we offer back to God appreciation for His mighty works in our lives. Since God has done many wonderful deeds, He is worthy of praise (Psalm 18:3).
Just as praise is intertwined with thanksgiving, worship is intertwined with surrender.
What is worship?
It is through true worship that we invite the Holy Spirit to speak to us, convict us, and comfort us. Worship the same as it has been since Jesus walked here on Earth almost 2,000 years ago. Worship is giving honor and praise to our Father in heaven through music, dance, shouting, or where ever the spirit leads! It is living lives in obedience to His word and His call on your life. It is showing His worth to all because He is worthy.
Why do we praise and worship?
All inhabitants of the earth are instructed to praise the Lord (Psalm 138:4; Romans 15:11). We can praise Him with singing (Isaiah 12:5; Psalm 9:11), with shouting (Psalm 33:1; 98:4), with the dance (Psalm 150:4), and with musical instruments (1 Chronicles 13:8; Psalm 108:2; 150:3-5).
