What Is Worship?

Nehemiah 8:5-6

And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people; (for he was above all the people) and when he opened it, all the people stood up; And Ezra blessed the Lord, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with lifting up their hands, and worshipped the Lord with their faces to the ground.

The Student Bible Dictionary (P. 250) defines worship as adore, obey, reverence, focus positive attention on (Exodus 34:14; John 4:23). Enjoy the presence of God, any action or attitude that expresses praise, love, and appreciation for God. That being said, from our scripture text we see the nation of Israel worshipping God by offering praise and displaying expressions of gratitude to God for His love, grace, mercy and goodness.
Our lesson text also speak of the lifting of hands and bowing faces to the ground in expressions of worship as the people reverenced God as He is to be feared in reverence for His holiness.

Today's study also depicts true worship of God as this worship is one of the highest forms of praise that can be expressed to God as the nation of Israel displayed as must believers today. This is because the entire nation sincerely worshipped God.
When we worship God honestly He is pleased. He must be worshipped in spirit and in truth (John 4:23) because God looks at the heart.

Sincere worship of God by a nation can heal the nation.
