Biblical Examples of Worship

Here are just a few Biblical examples of worship...

"And Miriam the prophetess, Aaron's sister, took the timbrel in her hand, and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dancing. And Miriam answered them, "Sing to the Lord, fo He is highly exalted; the horse and the ride He has hurled into the sea." ~ Exodus 15:20 &21

"And David was dancing before the Lord with all his might. . ." ~ II Samuel 6:14

"And while they were ministering to the Lord and fasting . . ." Acts 13:2

We can minister to the Lord?!!

"And the for living creatures... day and night do not cease to say, "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God almighty, who was and who is and who is to come." And when the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, to Him who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders will fall down before Him who sits on the throne, and will worship Him who live forever and ever and will cast their crowns before the throne, saying worthy art Thou, our Lord and our God to receive glory and honor and power; for Thou didst create all things, and because of Thy will they existed, and were created. " ~Revelation 4:8-11

"Praise Him with trumpet sound; praise Him with harp and lyre.
Praise Him with timbrel and and dancing; praise Him with stringed instruments and pipe.
Praise Him with loud cymbals; praise Him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord." ~ Psalm 150: 3-6

Do you notice any key words or phrases in these verses that characterize worship? Like "do not cease" or how the Psalm says "loud" and "resounding" . . . It's not only with reverent somberness but with loud resounding praise that the Lord desires to be worshiped, too!

How amazing is it that the God of creativity desires to be worshiped by each of us in our diversity of personalities and abilities?!

But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.
~ John 4:23 & 24
