Many things happen within the church—both good and bad. We need to grow in many areas, such as serving, humility, and walking in unity. There are things to avoid, like judging, slandering, and gossiping. There are common activities that help bring church members together like prayer, praise, and worship. We need to follow Jesus’ example because we love Jesus and love others, not because of rules or “laws”.
We give praise and thankgiving to God with hearts of gratitude for who God is and what He has done for us. Praise songs are usually ABOUT God, but Worship songs are TO God.
Worship is a heart matter. We need to sacrifice and surrender our own ways, submitting to God as our King—every part of our heart and life in His control.
We are to worship in Spirit and in Truth, acknowledging who God is and what He has done for us. It pleases God when believers express love while living in holiness.
