What it means to worship in the Christian faith and what it does to uplift them spiritually What is worship? Worship is giving worth to someone or something, genuine worship is a wholehearted expression of wonder, adoration, love, admiration, celebration, and fascination. It is a great feeling that occurs in your soul as you start to worship God for his love and appreciate him for all he has done.

Winthrop explains the importance of loving God. He states “love is as absolutely necessary to the being of thee body of Christ, as the sinewes and other ligaments of a natural body are to the being of that body” (Winthrop 194).

I am not suggesting revolting or secretive ways, But I believe witnessing through action is just as important as witnessing through professing one’s belief. In Matthew 5:16, it states, “in the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16, NIV). Christian educator’s classroom should embody principles that are reflective of a Christian worldview to implement a biblical worldview to support a Christian philosophy in education in a practical application. We must instill themes like love, wholeness, and responsibility of knowledge. Graham states, “biblical teachings concerning love, wholeness, and responsibility, as well as our experience of them in Christ, must be brought to bear on our studies and research” (Graham, 2009, 24).
A biblical worldview is the lens we use to trust the word of God and how we apply it to everyday life. Our worldview is something we deem true and valuable. Hence, by applying God 's all-knowing truth and wisdom, we allow it to be the groundwork of everything we think, say, and do.

“Virtuous Minds” by Philip E. Dow focuses primarily on loving and serving God with one’s mind. Dow explains that intellectual character consists of inner attitudes and deposition towards things such as truth, knowledge, and understanding. Similarly, a virtuous intellectual character is defined as a deep and abiding love of truth. Dow states that the decisions people make are shaped by the thinking patterns they have developed over the years. Dow describes intellectually courageous people as those who earnestly want to know the truth, and therefore take risks in the promotion and pursuit of truth.
As stated in mormonbeliefs.org, Mormons believe that God had materials in order to create the uniform and organize the world out of chaos. John smith believes that the earth itself was not created out of nothing, but out of organized matter. They believe that we as human beings were created by God in order for his children to grow and eventually make their end goal to be more like him. This creation myth helps members to believe that if they follow the commands of the Lord, and they adhere to all of the things that Christ wants from them, they will see that the plan of salvation will work in their favor, and they will be rewarded for their good deeds here on earth.
Timothy Keller begins his book Every Good Endeavor with an explanation about God 's design for work. The Creation narrative describes God actions of creating as being work. The best way to look at God 's intention for work is to see how He worked. In Genesis, we are shown that God 's design demonstrated a repetitive cycle of work and rest. There is a huge indication that work is good and Keller argues that work shouldn 't be seen as a restriction to the lives we want to live.
I’ve decided to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ without fear, to promote the power and the glory of God among us, and to live a Christian life with love, joy and peace. Each of us possesses our own way of positively affecting the world we live in and it is a necessity that we contribute in making it a better place. Whatever you can do…..Do it! “Let us put our minds together and see what life we can make for our children.” Chief Sitting Bull – Hunkpapa Lakota Holy
