What If We Praised Enthusiastically? by Jerry Wierwille

Praise means “to express approval or admiration for someone or something.”

Worship means “to regard with great or extravagant respect, honor, or devotion.”

The most common Greek words translated “worship” in the NT is prokuneō, which means “to express in attitude or gesture one’s complete dependence on or submission to a high authority figure.”

Our posture is a reflection of our heart. Our non-verbal communication is just as or even more important than our verbal. What we say with our feet, our hands, and our faces all expresses what’s in our heart.

Responding to God in praise and worship can be silent and peaceful, or loud and rambunctious.
