When we think of the word "worship," a lot of thoughts come to mind. Worship implies celebration or reverence or praise and can come in a lot of different forms. We can worship our jobs or careers. We can worship money or finances. We can worship sports or hobbies. We can worship other people such as Movie stars, Sports stars, or Politicians. Worship can even take place in Church auditoriums as we listen to inspirational music.
Worship, at its core, is not about how we feel towards things or people or even how we feel during inspirational music. Worship is recognizing that it is God who gives us our everything. It is God who directs our every path. It is God who meets our every need, even when we don't know what's best for ourselves. It is God who comforts us at times of loss. It is God who gives us meaning for our very existence.
Worship is an adoration and appreciation of our Heavenly Father for who He is and what He has done by giving His life for us. Worship doesn't require a place–it only requires a relationship with Him.
