Responding in Wonder by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/12/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: What exactly is worship?

“Worship actually is an activity or a structured event.”

“Worship to me is a state of mind.”

“Probably certain types of music are more worshipful than other types of music.”

Nancy: Here’s my definition of worship: It’s our response to God’s revelation of Himself. In other words, when God shows us His person, His provision, and His power; it’s only fitting for us to respond with awe, wonder, and gratitude.

In Exodus 14 we read that God dramatically parted the Red Sea so the Israelites could be saved from the Egyptian army. God’s people responded in worship, singing:

The LORD is my strength and my song. . . .
He is my God, and I will praise Him.

Worship goes beyond singing songs during a set time on Sunday morning. Each of us can respond to God with awe and wonder every day as He displays His power.
