My word for the new year is Worship. Worship defined is to show reverence and adoration for God. As is love, worship is a choice. It is my reaction to the activities of the providential hand of God. God showed us the ultimate form of love embodied in Christ. He has blessed me beyond belief, let alone what I deserve. He deserves my praise. My goal this year is to focus on worshiping Him.
"Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness."
-- Psalm 29:2

"Exalt ye the Lord our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy."
-- Psalm 99:5

"God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."
-- John 4:24

"Worship is the total alignment of our heart, soul, mind and strength with the will of God. It is our whole-hearted response to God’s extravagant love and mercy."
-- Worship Central

"Worship is the believer’s response of all that they are – mind, emotions, will, body – to what God is and says and does."
-- Warren Wiersbe

"Worship of the living and true God is essentially an engagement with him on the terms that he proposes and in the way that he alone makes possible."
-- David Peterson

"Worship is the submission of all our nature to God. It is the quickening of conscience by His holiness; the nourishment of mind with His truth; the purifying of imagination by His Beauty; the opening of the heart to His love; the surrender of will to His purpose – and all of this gathered up in adoration, the most selfless emotion of which our nature is capable and therefore the chief remedy for that self-centeredness which is our original sin and the source of all actual sin."
-- William Temple
