Yielding it All to God in Worship
The Bible calls worshipers to not only have bowed hearts and minds, but to have a posture that is yielded to the Holy Spirit and that engages our entire being before God.
Studying worship throughout the Bible, I don’t think it takes long to realize that there is absolutely nothing passive about the act of worship. Nothing. But you wouldn’t know that to observe many “worship” services in Christian churches today.
The Hebrew and Greek words translated worship or praise throughout the Bible are very active words. A few are:
halal – to worship exuberantly or in an unbridled manner
shachah – to bow down before
yadah – to extend the hand to God
proskuneo – to bow and kiss
Let’s unpack a few topics involving in our posture before God in worship, see what the Bible has to say, and find some foundational truths to stand on.
