Psalm 95:1-2.. 1O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord, Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. 2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
v. 11 has 3 commands come, sing and shout that tell us how we are to approach worship. We are not to sit idly by being entertained but to come worshipping with singing and shouting joyfully to Jesus our Lord and Savior. Personal involvement continues in v.12 by coming into the very presence of Jesus with other believers. The Holy Spirits presence is in us all the time, but we must be very aware of His presence as we are giving thanks and praise: Joyfully focusing on God’s presence takes our thoughts from self into worship.
However, to me worship is much more than singing. It is the total experience from Sunday School through all the complete services of the week including music, prayer and sermon. We also worship in our meditation time alone with God during each day. Praising and Worshipping God daily . During the day as we ask God for guidance, thank Him and trust Him we are also worshipping.
