Robert Morris - What's So Important About Expressing Worship?
In this second message on worship, Pastor Robert dispels the myth that we can limit worship to our “hearts.” Learn why it’s important to openly express worship. Worship is an act of faith. It is love expressed.
The Bible says to love the Lord with all our heart, mind, soul and strength. This means that we are to express our worship to God with our bodies as well as our souls and spirits. Worship is an act of faith. We should worship even when we don’t feel like it because we worship by faith and not feelings. Praise is a command, and the Lord is always worthy of our praise.
The Bible tells us how to express our worship to God. Clapping our hands expresses our joy to the Lord and our victory over the Enemy. Shouting is declaring victory, sometimes even before it happens. Singing praise to God is an act of faith, especially when we sing before we see God’s provision with our eyes. Bowing represents submission to God, and kneeling represents honor and adoration. Lifting our hands represents blessing. The one to whom you lift your hands is blessed. Dancing is an expression of delight and freedom in the presence of God.
In Luke 7:31–32, Jesus told a group of Jews that they were missing their opportunity—their day of visitation—because they refused to worship Him. Our day of visitation happens while we are on earth, and many people today are missing it because they refuse to express their worship to God. The presence of the King validates our expression of worship. So don’t worry about what others think—worship the Lord!
