There are over 400 references to singing in the Bible. But true worship goes beyond our songs at church.

Key Points:

  1. Worship is not about us. Psalm 29:2
  2. Worship is a response to who God is. Psalm 9:1-2
  3. We Worship God in everything we do. Romans 12:1

Featured Text:

Romans 12:1 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.
