A study of the word Worship
I have been doing a little digging on the word worship for the area of our website that we call “Show”. We definitely believe that worship is one of the best ways to illustrate where a person is in life. We worship many things and sometime need to step back and really see what worship means to make the corrections needed so we are worshiping the One who deserves it.
I hope this helps.
