Wednesday Worship - What have I learned?

So, it’s been a month and a half since I began my QUEST to find out what WORSHIP means.
You would think that I would have the answer by now.

I’m finding out-
that it’s more complicated than I thought.

I’ve read the Bible, attended a weekly Bible Study centered around Worship, I’ve surveyed and observed people around me (Christians and Non-Christians), I’ve listened to Christian music lyrics, I’ve read other blogs and websites dedicated to WORSHIP, and a ton more.

Here’s what I know so far:

1. Worship is coming face-to-face with God, as Christians we encounter God with an ‘unveiled face’.
2. Worship happens when we allow the Holy Spirit to work in our lives, for the purpose of shaping us from ‘Glory to Glory’ in order to be more like Jesus.
3. Worship is not the same for everybody, and often, different people 'experience' worship in different ways.
4. Worshiping in Spirit and in Truth means something different than worshiping in spirit and in truth. (The capital letters means SO much).

I know, it’s not much, but I’m learning slowly.

This quest is not over. Don’t worry; I will keep sharing what I learn, for those of you that NEED to know, like me!

Sweet!! -
I feel like I'm FOR SURE on the right track if Skot thinks these are good thoughts.

This is a great indication to me - to keep pressing forward in the same direction.

Thanks, Skot.
