What Is Worship In The Bible

Worship in the Bible means respect and adoration for God. It does not necessarily mean attending church or folding hands to pray to God. Worship signifies that a person has reverence for the Almighty. God is worthy of worship because the Bible states that God created the Universe and everything in it, including humans. Consider this verse from the Book Of Revelation.

"You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will, they were created and had their being." - Revelation 4:11

God is holiest of holies. Due to his holiness, he commands worship, and rightly so. This verse from Exodus 3 reiterates this.

"Do not come any closer," God said. "Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground." Then he said, "I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob." At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God." - Exodus 3:5-6
