Worship is not what we think it is. Worship is an attitude and specific acts.
Worship is done by priests. Worship in the Old Testament and New Testament is clearly defined. Interestingly it is something done by priests both in the Old and New Testament. The Bible is very specific about that. A priest is someone who can come into the presence of God; he or she is qualified to do that. A priest is someone who can make offerings and sacrifices to God. So you need a person, a location, and activity to make a priest. So it is a privilege for us to be priests for God as Peter said.
9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession, that you may proclaim the excellency of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
10 for you once were not a people, but now you are the people of God; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. (1Peter 2:9-10)
Notice that verse 10 tells us that at one time we were not a people, we who were Gentiles. But now we are a royal priesthood. What a wonderful privilege we have and this month will be studying that privilege in detail. We will discover what worship really is.
