7 Words of Worship: Yadah
The first word of worship is Jesus. As believers, we are the temple of the Holy Spirit, and our life is worship. No matter what the “church” looks like; whether it is a church going through the reformation, a tribal village in Ethiopia, or Carmel; the one constant is Jesus! The form can look very different depending on the context. If we focus on the form (style) of worship, that yields a passionless, robotic ritual. Worship is written about 81 times in the New Testament, with 30% of those mentions being found in Revelation. Why? Revelation is a book that focuses on Jesus and His glory. His glory and majesty causes us to revere Him (Revelation 22:1-9).
In 2 Chronicles 6:12, after the Temple had been built, Solomon is spreading out his hands and dedicating the Temple. He says in verse 14, “O LORD, God of Israel, there is no God like you, in heaven or on earth.” He is worshipping.
2 Chron 7:3 says, …”they bowed down with their faces to the ground on the pavement and worshiped and gave thanks to the LORD…”
YADAH (Give Thanks) means “To revere of worship with extended hands.” ; “To hold out the hands”. ; “To throw a stone or arrow”. Yadah describes those moments when the Hebrew people were so overcome by the glory of the LORD that their hands shot up in response.
We are ALL called to worship Him with everything (ABLE).
Questions to Consider

1. How can you give thanks to the Father without music? In what ways is obedience worship?

2. Where does form (preference) hinder you from worship?

3. What does it mean to “know Christ”? Do you have that relationship with Him?
