Praise and Worship
 

Understanding Praise and Worship

Psalms 100:4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise: Be thankful unto him and Bless His Name.

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

Difference between praise and worship

Praise: Hebrew word "Halal" is the source of our word "Hallelujah" means to praise, celebrate, glory, sing (praise), boast. Greek: epainos - to commend, to commend the worth, to express approval or admiration.

Worship: Hebrew word- shachah: to worship, prostrate oneself, bow down. The act of bowing down being used to recognize a superior ruler. Greek: proskuneo: to kiss towards. An act of homage or reverence.

Praise:
• Precedes worship
• Binds the enemy Psalms 149:8-9
• Centers on what God is doing

Worship:
• Worship centers on the character and attributes of God Himself.
• Involves total commitment and release of the Spirit, Soul and the Body.
• Worship is not pure by method but rather by motivation. Matt 5:8 says: "Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God.
• The quality and depth of worship develops with the quality and depth of spiritual maturity (Godliness) in the believer.
