There are many different words translated "worship" in the Bible; but the "worship" of God is no where defined in scriptures. A consideration of these words shows that it is not confined to praise. It may be regarded as the direct acknowledgment to God of His nature, attributes, ways and claims, whether by the outgoing of the heart in praise and thanksgiving or by deed done in such acknowledgment. There are four types of worship mentioned in the New Testament and only one is acceptable to God.

Let us worship God in spirit and in truth "for the Father seeketh such to worship Him." (John 4:23-24; Romans 8:1-8; Galatians 5:17)
