The Bible doesn’t give a formal definition of
But perhaps we can start by seeing what various words for worship mean.
English word "worship" comes
from two Old English words: weorth, which
means "worth," and scipe
orship, which means something like shape or "quality."
We can see
the Old English word -ship in modern words like friendship
sportsmanship – that’s the quality of being a friend, or the quality
of being a good sport.
So worth-ship is the quality of having worth or of being worthy.
When we worship, we are saying that God has worth, that he is
worthy. Worship means to declare worth, to attribute worth.
Or to put it in biblical terms, we praise God. We speak, or sing,
about how good and powerful God is.
This is a purpose for which we are called: "You are a chosen people,
a royal priesthood, a holy
nation, a people belonging to God, that you
may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his
wonderful light" (1 Peter 2:9).
We were called for the purpose of praising God, worshiping God.
That is one of the job descriptions of a Christian. We should declare
that God is worthy, worth more than everything else put together.
Music is only one of the many ways we express our Worship to God,
but it is a powerful one to say the least, therefore we esteem it
highly as an expression in our Church body.
We ask ourselves these questions as a basis for
Does it glorify God?
Does it build up the body of Christ?
Does it help us to live out Jesus in the world?
