Ways to Worship the Lord
Question: Do you spend time worshiping the Lord?
Question: In what way do you worship the Lord?
The visiting Pastor last weekend mentioned that there are
many ways to
physically worship God, and he referenced several passages for us to look at as
homework. A partial list of these passages is listed below:
Revelation 7:11 [Face Down] (NIV):
10 And they cried out in a loud
voice: "Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the
throne, and to the Lamb."
11 All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four
living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped
12 saying: "Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power
and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!"
1 Chronicles 17:16 [Sitting] (NIV):
15 Nathan reported to David all the words of this entire revelation.
16 Then King David went in and sat before the LORD, and he said:
"Who am I, O LORD God, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far?
17 And as if this were not enough in your sight, O God, you have spoken about the future
of the house of your servant. You have looked on me as though I were the most
exalted of men, O LORD God.
Psalms 47:1 [Clap & Shout] (NIV):
1 Clap your hands, all you nations; shout
to God with cries of joy.
2 How awesome is the LORD Most High, the great King over all the earth!
Psalms 48:12 [Walking] (NIV):
12 Walk about
13 consider well her ramparts, view her citadels, that you may tell of them to
the next generation.
Psalms 63:4 [Lift Hands & Singing] (NIV):
3 Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
4 I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
5 My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my
mouth will praise you.
Psalms 95:6 [Bow & Kneel] (NIV):
5 The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
6 Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker;
7 for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.
Today, if you hear his voice,
Psalms 123:1 [Eyes Up] (NIV):
A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to you, to you
whose throne is in heaven.
2 As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid look to
the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, till he shows us
Psalms 149:3 [Dancing & Music] (NIV):
3 Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with tambourine
4 For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.
Luke 18:13 [Eyes Down] (NIV):
12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.
13 "But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven,

For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself
will be exalted."
Acts 3:8 [Walking & Jumping] (NIV):
7 Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man's feet and ankles
8 He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple
courts, walking and jumping, and praising God.
9 When all the people saw him walking and praising God,
