Here we are again. The last month of another year is before us. I hope as you reflected on the many blessings God has afforded you you were able to genuinely thank Him. Humbly. Fully.
Let’s look at at that worship definition again: our response of all that we are to all that God is and does. Ok, we’ve looked at our response to His doing. How about our response to His being. Who is He?
I went through bible study on Worship a while back: “Worship and the Word” by Pamela Haddix. One of her lessons was about “knowing the person of God”. In it she recommended meditating on specific names or titles of the Lord. In doing so, we learn more of who God is. And we’re able worship Him “more” of all that He is. She had an appendix which listed the many Names, Titles, and Descriptions of God (360+ according to NIV). Here is a sampling:
GOD the FATHER: A faithful God who does no wrong, A forgiving God, A fortress of salvation, A glorious crown, A jealous and avenging God,…God of glory, God of grace, God of hope, God of love and peace,… Our judge, Our lawgiver, Our leader, Our Mighty One, Our Redeemer,… Your very great reward.
GOD the SON: A banner for the peoples, A Nazarene, Alpha and Omega, Ancient of Days, Anointed One, Apostle and high priest, Author and perfecter of our faith,… Image of the invisible God, Immanuel (God with us), Indescribable gift,… Prince and Savior, Prince of Peace, Prince of princes, Prince of the hosts,… Wonderful Counselor, Word of God, Word of life, Your life, Your salvation.
GOD the SPIRIT: A deposit (earnest), Another Counselor, Breath of the Almighty, Holy One,… Seal, Spirit of Christ, Spirit of counsel and of power, Spirit of faith, Spirit of fire,… The same gift, Voice of the Almighty, Voice of the Lord.

So go ahead, pick one. And worship Him. Then pick another. And another.
