Worship has changed dramatically over the last thirty years, leaving many worship leaders, musicians, and participants confused about what "doing worship" actually means. In 2012, worship leader Wayne Huirua received a prophetic encouragement to read the Word and find out what worship really is. The revelation he received took him by surprise. Join Wayne as he reexamines biblical characters from Adam and Eve, who were the first to need worship, to Noah, whose worship really stood out, to Abraham, who finally "manned up" about worship, to Moses, who had serious insecurity issues about worship, and even to King David, who took worship to a whole new level. All these believers struggled with the same sins we do: pride, lust, anger, greed. But Wayne carefully demonstrates how their worship, and our worship, can bring us out of sin and into oneness with God; the ultimate meaning of worship. This book will guide your revelation about the role of worship in your own life: Are you doing what is right in your own eyes, or doing what is right in God's? Are you a true worshipper? And most important, are you living in oneness with God?
