I have been thinking about worship the last few weeks. Well, I imagine my new responsibilities will require that I think about worship next to constantly. Given that, I have spent more time focusing on it than I have in quite some time. I opened a Bible software program (to knock the dust off of it) and did a quick survey of uses of the word worship. That turned into a mini Greek word study (please don’t faint). Anyway, I noticed two words for worship: latreia and proskuneo. A quick survey seems to suggest that the former is more concerned about how we worship (methodology) and the latter is more concerned about why we worship (theology). I am curious what your thoughts are on why we worship and examples you have about how your experience of the church practices worship.
I look forward to your comments.
