Often people are concerned about "how" they come to God in worship. Some believe it should be in reverence. Some believe it should be with joy. How about both? The point is to come! Be in his presence and give Him all of what you are. Don't hold anything back. Just dive in.
In Mark 12:30 Jesus tells us to worship the Lord our God with all of our heart, all of our soul, all of our mind, and all of of our strength. He wants his followers to give him everything! Jesus is actually quoting a passage from the Old Testament in Deuteronomy 6:5. Since the beginning of the nation of Israel, God has demanded all of it. Not just your thinking. Not just your strength. Not just your heart. All of you.
Here's a quick breakdown of what God wants. These descriptors are all meanings from the corresponding Greek word.
"heart" = inner life, will, desire, emotion
"soul" = vital breath of life, the center of your will and being
"mind" = thoughts, intellect, understanding, insight, brain power
"strength" = power, might, ability, body
Do you give God all these things in your worship? Or do you just dabble your toe in the pool? I admit that sometimes I just over think how to get in the pool. Should I sing this part? Should I lift my hand here? Should I be thinking about the lyrics? Should I be offering him something? The answer to all of these is... ________ . Fill in the blank. If you are a believer in Christ, then the Holy Spirit lives inside of you. He will help guide your worship. He will help you fill in the blank.
You just have to dive in.
worship Him 24/7...
