VanDye.org on worship:
There are two aspects of what we mean when we talk about Worship.
The first is the weekly gathering of the church to join our voices together in affirming God’s goodness, faithfulness, love and power; to bear witness to God’s wonderful work of salvation; to hear His word proclaimed; and to offer our prayers, presence, gifts and service. This gathered experience of worship is of utmost importance to the health of our spiritual lives and we should each be committed to this weekly gathering of the church in Worship.
The second aspect of worship involves the daily rhythm of our lives and how we acknowledge God in the midst of our moments and days. This involves the habit of daily prayer, meditation of Scripture, and acts of love. Another foundation to daily worship is cultivating a heart of gratitude. James 1:17 says,"Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights...." Make it a practice to recognize the good things that come your way and pause to give God thanks and praise for those things.
