Psalms 100:2. Worship the Lord with joy! Enter his presence with joyful singing!

Worship is defined as the feeling or expression of reverence or adoration. Reverence is defined as profound respect and esteem mingled with fear. Adoration is the act of paying honor to someone. Our question is are these attributes reflected in and through us when we gather with fellow believers to worship our God? Reverence is expressed quietly but adoration is expressed with joyful exuberance. We need a combination of both to fully worship our God. David was criticized by his wife for jumping and dancing with exuberance before the Ark of the Covenant but he was a man after God’s own heart. Will we hide our exuberance for fear of criticism from others or will God know us as children after His own heart? Let us be true worshipers.
