As we are approaching the end of this series on praise and worship, there are remaining two questions that I promised to answer and this marks the last but one session of our lesson before we wind up.
  1. How powerful is worship?
  2. How do I begin my journey as a truthful worshiper?
The power of worship
In worship, it is important that we seek God other than just the experience of worship. It is when we are made whole again. When we get to encounter our creator, the reverence of God, worshiping Him in His presence. When we worship in spirit and truth, we experience the true manifestation of God Himself in our lives.

We read from Ex 40:34-35

"Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. 35 Moses could not enter the Tent of Meeting because the cloud had settled upon it, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.NIV

When we worship God in spirit and truth, worshiping Him from deep inside our hearts, He ministers unto us, His presence fills and covers us.

How do I begin my journey as a truthful worshiper?
This is very important and as children of God, we ought to know this. Since we worship God for who He is, it is important that we should seek to know God more. When the creation encounters the creator, the best thing to do is worship, bow down before Him! The more you know God, the more you advance your worship to God. 

Worship is all about God, who God is. So it is a wise thing to get to know God more in our lives and God says in Jeremiah 29:13
"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." NIV If we need to worship in spirit, we need the Holy Spirit to guide us through. If we seek God, we will find Him.
This marks the end of the second major part of this sermon, one important part remaining, THE ROLE OF MUSIC IN PRAISE AND WORSHIP so do not plan to miss that...
