How are we to worship God? What is your system?
OBEY GOD that is worship.
Romans 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey, whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Praise may take different forms

What's important is what Christ declared:
"But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." John 4:23,24
"Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." John 3:3,5

"Let us lift up our heart with hands up to God in the heavens. O worship YHWH in the beauty of holiness. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel to YHWH our Maker: for he our God, and we the people of his pasturing, and the sheep of his hand. Who will give Yeshuah up to Israel out of Zion? Magnify YHWH with me, and let us exalt his name together. Who is this King of glory? YHWH of hosts, he the King of glory. Exalt. Note, I have graven you upon the palms of the hands: your walls continually in front of me. And here Jesus, he met them saying, Rejoice! thereupon they came forward embracing of him his feet, and worshipped him. I am the Lord, which from being, and which to being, and which coming, the Almighty."

--- Jack your statement,"Mima, Jesus worshipped the Father according to the RITUALS of the Synagogue and Temple, and NEVER condemened it because they were "rituals." Is exactly true!!!! It also is a clear description of how the Lord Jesus Christ fulfilled the law for all who believe in him.

You're not supposed to have a "system" relationship or a relationship that is IDENTICAL to other worshippers, our relationship/devotion is supposed to be PERSONAL (with all of our idiosyncracies, mistakes, habits, etc.).
GOD IS LOVE. Our relationship/devotion is supposed to be based on LOVE (not mere faith). We are supposed to love God more than life itself, not love the bible or pastors/scholars. The brethren did not die on the cross, neither did the bible or Paul. I have faith in the laws of physics also, but I don't love them.
Agape, philos, eros, and storge are not TYPES of love, but types of love RELATIONSHIPS.
We're supposed to love God more than life itself (and with NO fear, 1 John 4:18, Isaiah 29:13 RSV).

According to the way that Jesus Himself commanded and has been done everywhere in all the churches where worship is offered as is pleasing to God (instead of latter-day traditions and precepts of men) and the pure word is preached without fear or favor.

Jesus taught us how to pray. Jesus is the system.
We are to follow Him in all his ways at all times and repent of all our sins, even the ones we can't seem to think of. Read the Bible, thank and Praise God for all things, and go to church.

God forbid that I would ever have a "system" to worship Him. Only religion has systems... I am not in religion, I am in Christ.

My walk with the Lord is an everyday adventure, it is a LOVE story It's a way of life, not a system.
I worship Him by first giving thanks for all things, and all people at all times. I acknowledge the beauty He has made for us to enjoy daily.
I thank Him for my life, and the lives of my loved ones. I thank Him for access to water, rainbows, flowers, and food.
We are to worship God from our hearts, in word and deed at all times.

Do you hear them on CNN. Everyone is standing around patting each other on the backs, telling each other what a great job we all did, and leaving God OUT. UG.

Mike ... it's not a system. It should be a way of life.
---alan8869_of_UK on 4/17/07|
Mike, the best way is as he commands. Love God with all your heart, mind and strengh.Everything should pretty well work itself into place if you obey this command.Notice the word all ,it does MEAN EVERYTHING ALL OF THE TIME.

Yes Linda6563! IT IS WRITTEN: John 4:23-24 .

Mima, Jesus worshipped the Father according to the RITUALS of the Synagogue and Temple, and NEVER condemened it because they were "rituals."
What He DID condemn were external prohibitions or precepts imposed as duties by outsiders.
---Jack on 6/8/06|
If there's a system I've missed it. I reckon we all do it differently actually and that is probably how it's meant to be.
---emg on 6/8/06|
In Spirit and in truth.
---Linda6563 on 6/8/06|
The word system is interchangeable with the word ritual and therefore my definition would deny worship.
---mima on 6/8/06|
there's a "system" for worshiping God??? Interesting- maybe that's why a lot of folk are bound by limitations and earthly traditions, and have never known the joy of freedom in worship- they're too worried about following a SYSTEM. REAL worship cannot be contained within the boundries of a man-made system. That's worshiping God with your head, and not your heart. Maybe that's what he meant when he said "these people worship me with their lips, but their HEART is far from me."

Romans 12:1Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to Godthis is your spiritual[a] act of worship.
---Madison1101 on 6/7/06|
Well by first understanding fully who God is,then realizing who you are, or what you are without him.Then worship becomes really easy.
