Worship - A Verb

Romans 12:1 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God - this is your spiritual act of worship.”

Tune in to any talk show today and you will notice the marriage fixers are driving home the point that love is not a noun it’s a verb. It’s more than just the words that you say, it’s the things that you do everyday whether you feel like it or not. Now, in the dictionary I find that love is still listed as a noun, so I decide that if Webster could be wrong about love, maybe he could be wrong about other words, too. Sure enough, worship is listed as a noun, too. The definition ends with: “to offer prayers, attend church services, etc”. No wonder the church isn’t doing worship correctly, they’ve been practicing Webster’s definition without adding what the Bible has taught about worship! Can you imagine the impact we would have on the unsaved community when worship becomes what we do and not what we say? When our church attendance is overshadowed by what we live and not what we preach?
