Excerpt taken from Chapter 2 The Emergence of True Worshippers In Hebrew, worship is abad and translates as to serve, work, to become a slave or servant to, to obey, to be enslaved, and to continue in service as a bondman. As seen, biblical worship has very little to do with singing, clapping, or dancing, though these acts stream from a heart of worship. Instead, worship is to figuratively bow down and symbolizes the act of willfully giving oneself over to another—living in a continued state of surrender as a vassal or servant; one who is submitted to and subordinate to another. In Romans 12:2 (NLT), Paul agrees: "And so, dear brothers and sister, I plead with you to give your bodies (selves) to God because of all He has done for you Let them be a living and holy sacrifice-the kind He will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship Him."
