PRAISE AND WORSHIP
Any Christian has heard about praise and worship to some extent at some point. I believe everyone has something to say about it and there may be different perspectives from different people.
Praise and worship is something that is naturally there in human beings. When God created a man, there is no doubt that He expected us to give praise to him and to worship him alone and that is why his word says, “you shall have no other gods before me” Exodus 20:3. The desire to worship is naturally there in each one of us. No human being can live in a zone free of praising and worshiping. What is important is to know whom to worship and whom to give praise to. If you don’t make this clear in your mind, you will end up worshiping something or somebody other than the one who is worthy of all that.
I urge you to sail with me in this boat as I share with you some biblical perspectives about praise and worship. It is my prayer that the Holy Spirit guides us both so that we get to know what really is in God’s heart concerning Praise and Worship “for no one knows the thought of God except the Spirit of God” 1Corinthians 2:11b (NIV)
I have divided this whole lesson in two major parts:
Then in the end we are going to discuss about the role of music in Praise and Worship.
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened throughout this lesson. We will keep on exploring more about these two subtopics so keep in touch and stay tuned for the coming session next week.
