To worship is “to honor with extravagant love and extreme submission” (Webster’s Dictionary, 1828).
“Come, let us worship Him. Everyone bow down; kneel before the Eternal who made us.” (Psalm 95:6, VOICE). “Come, let us honor Him with extravagant love and extreme submission. Everyone bow down: kneel before the Eternal who made us.”
The Bible records the story of how the people of Israel would respond when they saw the pillar of cloud standing at the entrance of the tent where Moses met with God. The Bible records that each person would stand and bow in worship at the entrance of their own tents” (Exodus 33:10, VOICE).
And I reflect on the fact that true worship is first and foremost a posture of the heart. We worship Him first in our hearts. And then from the worship of our hearts, we worship Him with our lives. With the daily choices we make.
Abba, I acknowledge that I have not worshiped You in this way. Help me to honor You with extravagant love and extreme submission. Help me Abba, to love You well.
