Not just praise OR worship
There are many ways to describe the worship experience, whether all alone or in the midst of a congregation of thousands — adoration, celebration, devotion, exaltation, and thanksgiving are a few words that come to mind. The Old Testament doesn’t present us with the dichotomy of praise or worship, in fact, there are several Hebrew words for ‘praise’ that include elements you may have thought applied exclusively to worship:
Barak to kneel and bless God as an act of adoration, implies a continual conscious giving place to God, to be attuned His presence (Psalm 95:6)
Yadah to throw out, to worship with an extended hand (Psalm 63:4).
Karar to dance (2 Samuel 6:16)
Halal the root for our word hallelujah. It means to rave about, to boast, to celebrate, to be clamorously foolish. The literal translation is to spin like a top (Psalm 113:1).
Shabach a shout or command; to address in a loud tone (Psalm 145:4)
Taqa (Taqua) to clap hands (Psalm 47:1)
Todah (Towdah) same root as yadah, but literally means an extension of the hands in adoration (Psalm 50:14)
Zamar to touch strings, play an instrument in worship (Psalm 1:13)
Tehillah to sing a spontaneous, extemporaneous song. This is the praise described by John in Revelation.
Come celebrate with us this Sunday at God’s house, 10AM, as we continue in the Word and in our Worship and Praise of our Lord.
No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. All are welcome to share in our worship, so invite others to join us.
AND don’t forget Wednesday night for DIGGING Deep into the Word. Meet us at 7 PM in the Foundry.
We pray that you and your family have a blessed and prosperous week!
See you in church! Pastor Keith
