Worship With the Word

What words do you use to worship?  Worship using the names of God, the names of Jesus.  “Lord, you are the Lamb of God, the Savior of the world, the Prince of peace…

Worship using adjectives, words or phrases descriptive of God.  “Lord, you are good, you are mighty, you are faithful…”

With your child(ren) use a concordance to find Bible verses with a descriptive word such as “worthy.”  Read the verses as part of your devotional/worship time.  Do this slowly, deliberately.  Reflect or meditate on the meaning of the verses.  Then think of songs or hymns that use the word in worship, and sing your favorites together.

Here are some words and phrases in the King James Version to get you started.  They will read differently in other versions.

You cannot accurately say, “God, You are great!  You are one in a million!”  No, because another million might come along some day, and another god like Him might be possible.  But that’s impossible, because there is no one like Him.  You can’t say, “Jesus, You are one in a trillion!” because that’s not true!  Another trillion, or 16 trillion, might come along and another Jesus might be possible.  But, that’s impossible, because there is NO ONE like Him!  NO ONE!  Not even one!
