Rev 14:7 And he cried with a mighty voice, Revere God and give
Him glory (honor and praise in worship), for the hour of His
judgment has arrived. Fall down before Him; pay Him homage and
adoration and worship Him Who created heaven and earth, the sea
and the springs (fountains) of water.
Joh 4:23 A time will come, however, indeed it is already here,
when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in
spirit and in truth (reality); for the Father is seeking just such
people as these as His worshipers.
Joh 4:24 God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship
Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality).
Come face to face with Jesus in scripture
and awe changes into adoration as you
behold Him in all His beauty:
His faultless purity
His unequalled wisdom
His limitless pity
His overwhelming majesty

God): - bow (self) down, crouch, fall down (flat),
humbly beseech, do (make) obeisance (curtsy,

hand); to fawn or crouch to, that is, (literally or

reverence to, adore): - worship.

the service, worship (-per)

1Co 14:14 For if I pray in an [unknown]
tongue, my spirit [by the Holy Spirit within me]
prays, but my mind is unproductive [it bears
no fruit and helps nobody].
1Co 14:14 If I pray in tongues, my
spirit prays but my mind lies fallow,
and all that intelligence is wasted.
Amp 1Co 14:15 Then what am I to do? I
will pray with my spirit [by the Holy Spirit
that is within me], but I will also pray
[intelligently] with my mind and
understanding; I will sing with my spirit [by
the Holy Spirit that is within me], but I will
sing [intelligently] with my mind and
MSG 1Co 14:15 So what's the solution?
The answer is simple enough. Do both. I
should be spiritually free and expressive as
I pray, but I should also be thoughtful and
mindful as I pray. I should sing with my
spirit, and sing with my mind.
Col 3:16 Let the word [spoken by] Christ (the Messiah)
have its home [in your hearts and minds] and dwell in you
in [all its] richness, as you teach and admonish and train
one another in all insight and intelligence and wisdom [in
spiritual things, and as you sing] psalms and hymns and
spiritual songs, making melody to God with [His] grace in
Col 3:16 Let the Word of Christ--the Message--have the run of
the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and
direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing
your hearts out to God!
Col 3:17 And whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word
or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in
[dependence upon] His Person, giving praise to God the
Father through Him.
Col 3:17 Let every detail in your lives--words,
actions, whatever--be done in the name of the
Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step
of the way.
Amp Php 3:3 For we [Christians] are the
true circumcision, who worship God in
spirit and by the Spirit of God and exult and
glory and pride ourselves in Jesus Christ,
and put no confidence or dependence [on
what we are] in the flesh and on outward
privileges and physical advantages and
Php 3:3 The real believers are the ones the
Spirit of God leads to work away at this
ministry, filling the air with Christ's praise
as we do it. We couldn't carry this off by
our own efforts, and we know it--
Psa 132:7 Let us go into His tabernacle; let
us worship at His footstool
Psa 132:7 We shouted, "Let's go to the shrine
dedication! Let's worship at God's own footstool!"
Frustration from Heaven
What has worship become?

“The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear it’s sound,
but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is

Causes of Our Failure
We can only worship when the

Desert island worshippers –
if you were on a desert island with no CD, no
worship leader or bible reading plan – would
you still worship, pray and meet with God?
Three Questions to Ask of Yourself:
Are you following the Spirit
and hearing God or are you
simply repeating a ritual?
Do you truly reflect the creativity Do you have a healthy,
fervent prayer life or
of our God or are you imitating
is prayer is too
and regurgitating meaningless
challenging for you?

2. Passionate Praise
Psalm 22 states that God is enthroned on the
praises of Israel –
the word ‘praise’ does not mean singing a few
nice songs or thinking quietly about God.
No, the word means ‘high’ praise.
Praise that is enthusiastic, loud, passionate.
Passion / Zeal is God’s Kingdom-Increasing Tool
3. Choose Spirit over Flesh
Not what your soul or body desires,
but with your spirit –

truth, for the Father seeks such to

Your spirit and God’s Spirit must come into a state
of glorious union if you are to be led by the Spirit in
As you become one spirit with God through surrender and infilling, his
motives can become yours, his love becomes expressed in you and
your worship is led and perfected by his own Spirit’s leading.
It’s the Holy Spirit who will communicate to your spirit, giving
direction, power, life and strength to your worship.

You must enter into the Throne Room of
God, spend time with Him, be intimate with
Him, worship Him, hear from Him
