Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God

and serve him only.’” (Luke 4:8)


“Worship” can be a hard word to define. What does it look like? What

are we supposed to do? How are we supposed to worship God?

Scripture can help us figure some of this out:

  • We worship with our offerings and sacrifices (Joshua 22:27)

  • We worship by giving thanks to God (2 Chronicles 7:3)

  • We worship by singing praises to God (2 Chronicles 29:30)

  • We worship by confessing our sins (Nehemiah 9:3)

  • We worship by bowing and kneeling before God (humility)

(Psalm 95:6)

  • We worship God in gladness (Psalm 100:2)

  • We worship in God’s house with others (Psalm 109:30)

  • We worship by fasting and praying (Luke 2:37)

  • We worship in spirit and in truth (John 4:24)

  • We worship by giving ourselves to God (Romans 12:1)

  • We worship by doing good deeds (1 Timothy 2:10)


And these verses are just a start; true worship goes so much deeper, so much farther than we can comprehend on our own. In short, we will never be able to truly worship God without the help of God himself. Ask Him for His help the next time you approach Him in worship, and watch how your worship changes!
