What Is Worship?

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, 
in view of God’s mercy, 
to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice,
 holy and pleasing to God—
this is your true and proper worship. 
Romans 12:1

In a small group on Sunday night we have been studying how we use our music in worship.  The question has been asked: "What is worship?"
I believe Paul gives us a very good description here in Romans 12.  I've read the first verse and always remember the "offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God" and that's it in a nutshell.
However, I tend to forget the rest of the verse that tells us how important that is.
The offering of our total being is our "true and proper worship."  If we do that, we will be able to accomplish the near impossible list of ways that Paul states in the rest of the chapter.
Christians, go offer your best sacrifice, yourself, and worship your God who allows you that privilege.  He'll show you what else He wants you to do when the time is right, if anything.
