The Bible doesn’t give a formal definition of worship. But
perhaps we can start by seeing what various words for worship mean.
The English word "worship" comes from two Old English words: weorth,
which means "worth," and scipe or ship, which means something like
shape or "quality." We can see the Old English word -ship in modern
words like friendship and sportsmanship – that’s the quality of
being a friend, or the quality of being a good sport.
So worth-ship is the quality of having worth or of being worthy.
When we worship, we are saying that God has worth, that he is
worthy. Worship means to declare worth, to attribute worth. Or to
put it in biblical terms, we praise God. We speak, or sing, about
how good and powerful God is.
This is a purpose for which we are called: "You are a chosen people,
a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that
you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness
into his wonderful light" (1 Peter 2:9). We were called for the
purpose of praising God, worshiping God. That is one of the job
descriptions of a Christian. We should declare that God is worthy,
worth more than everything else put together.
