What is Worship + My Worship Playlist

Worship is such an important necessity in our relationship with Christ. In fact, the Bible actually says that we are commanded to worship the One True God (Exodus 20:4). Worshiping God is a way to express our love and reverent adoration. 

Sometimes while driving to school I'll crank up the speakers so that I don't have to hear my own voice, and sing the loudest I can with lyrics just for honoring God. 

Most of the time when someones mentions 'worship', or 'worship service' they're talking about the 15-20 minutes of the choir singing hymns before the preacher gets up to the podium and gives a sermon. Lyrics can be more than just lyrics. Hymnals can become a foundation for your praising. I have to admit, sometimes I just sing because everyone else is. It's easy to get in the motions and get distracted. But when we say the Lord's name and His grace with a voided meaning, isn't it the same as taking His name in vain?

Worshiping can also be in other forms, such as serving others, volunteering your time for someone, praying, reading the Word, and the most common, singing.
An act of worship can be anything you make it, as long as you're praising the Lord with a genuine spirit. 

'You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only. Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.'
- James 2:24-26
Have you ever thought of the word 'hallelujah'?

In the Hebrew Bible hallelujah is actually a two-word phrase, not one word. "Hallelujah" means more than simply "praise Jah" or "praise Yah", as the word hallel in Hebrew means a joyous praise in song, to boast in God.
The meaning of the word Hallelujah (from Noah Webster's 1828):
HALLELU'IAH, noun [Heb. praise ye Jah or Jehovah, to praise, that is, to throw, or raise the voice, to utter a loud sound; Latin ululo.]

Praise ye Jehovah; give praise to God; a word used in songs or praise, or a term of rejoicing in solemn ascriptions of thanksgiving to God. It is used as a noun, or as an exclamation.
