Worship is human. It is an innate feeling in every human being to recognize the Omnipotent Power and worship Him. What does Christianity say about worship?

Worship is human

Worship is human. It is the privilege of human among all creations. Man worships his creator and strengthens his relationship with Him. Every culture gives an important place for worship. Carlyle said, “Work is worship,” by which he means to say that by doing one’s duty faithfully he can be faithful to God.

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines about worship thus: “Reverence offered a divine being or supernatural power; also: an act of expressing such reverence; a form of religious practice with its creed and ritual; extravagant respect or admiration for or devotion to an object of esteem.” Worship is more than an act of reverence or adoration. It is the attitude of the heart that gives importance.

Christian worship

Christians worship God showing reverence and gratitude to God. The first three commandments of the Ten Commandments mention about worshipping God. They worship in different ways. Christianity tells clearly that God is the only person who is to be adored and worshipped.

The Holy Bible states it clearly that there is only one God worthy of worship:

“Fear the Lord your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name. Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you for the Lord your God, who is among you, is a jealous God and his anger will burn against you, and he will destroy you from the face of the land.” (Deuteronomy 6:13-14)

Different ways of Christian worship

Worships can be performed individually and in groups. When worship is done in groups are congregation various forms of liturgy, rituals and ceremonies are adapted. Worship is done in various postures of the body. Singing and reciting are undertaken. Formal services with wonderful classical music and well-planned liturgical actions take place.

Two main features of Christian worship

Generally, Christian worship tends to have two major forms. They worship through the Word and the Sacraments. The Catholics have their Eucharistic worship in these two forms. In the first part of their worship, they read Word of God and praise God through the Word. Homilies given on the selected readings help the congregation to meditate upon the Word and adore God. They celebrate the Sacrament of Eucharist and share the Godly experience. In many denominations of Christians the Word of God is given more importance and worship takes place through the Word.

Through worship Christians ask God’s pardon for their sins, praise Him, adore Him, thank Him for His great works and express their love to God and others.
