Worship - "The feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity." (from Oxford)
The true definition of worship, in practice, can be found in the worship study, Experiencing Worship. From WEEK 2 of the Experiencing Worship Study...
WHAT IS WORSHIP?
As Christians the question is not should we worship, or whom do we worship, but how do we worship? What does it mean to worship in spirit and truth? What is acceptable and spiritual? What is unacceptable to God? What are acceptable expressions of worship?
Worship can be defined as recognizing and proclaiming the worth, value, majesty, honor and glory of God and giving homage, respect, reverence and praise to God. I like the following definition: "Worship is one's heart expression of love, adoration, honor, and praise to the Living God with an acceptable attitude and a acknowledgment of His supremacy and Lordship."
Genesis 18:2 uses the Hebrew word for worship which is shahah. What is it that Abraham does that is shahah or worship?
Worship is something that we do. It is an acceptable attitude expressed such as Abraham did as he bowed down. Worship is purely and solely for the Lord and should be a natural outflow of an inward attitude of our pure affection.
