Piety in the Gospels

Worshipedia | June 3, 2010 | Categories: Blogs | Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

The Gospels give evidence of individual as well as public piety. One may refer again to saintly figures such as Anna and Simeon, whose lives were devoted to prayer and praise and expectation. John the Baptist continues an earlier stream; he is the dedicated prophet of the desert, pursuing a life of asceticism. The Lord himself, for all the contrast he draws between himself and John (Matthew 11:16–19), both commands and also practices an assiduous More

Prayer in New Testament Worship

Worshipedia | June 1, 2010 | Categories: Blogs | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Prayer, in the more specific sense of petition, is a constituent element of worship. The first duty of the church between the Ascension and the outpouring of the Spirit was to wait in prayerful expectancy. Persecution quickly forced the Jerusalem church to its knees in common prayer. The needs of Christians, the needs of apostles, and the needs of the world all provided constant material for intercession. Common concern produced common petition. One More

In many passages he indicates the content of his own prayers, which in the Epistles at least are largely intercessory in character (Philippians 1:4–11; Colossians 1:9–12), More

Terms for Worship in the Old Testament

Worshipedia | May 7, 2010 | Categories: Blogs | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

There is no general term for “worship” in the Old Testament. Instead, many words are used to describe the actions of worshiping the Lord. The worshiper seeks the Lord and his presence (Psalms 24:6; 27:8; Psalm 34:4) or seeks him early or eagerly (Psalm 63:1). He or she calls on the Lord or on his name (Psalms 18:3; 50:15; 105:1). Thus the worshiper “appears” before the Lord (Exodus 23:17; Psalm 42:2; Isaiah 1:12) to confront him or come before More
