It is often very difficult to find the difference between Praise and worship. In order to find the difference between praise and worship, we will have to go back in history. The songs of praise have been in existence from the pagan times even before they were used more wisely by Christian missionaries in order to teach the pagans the path of faith. Later on, as time moved on and the times changed’ these songs were modified to suit the purpose of worshiping God as well.
Some people will contest the fact that there is no difference between praise and worship. However, there is a thin line between the concept of praising and worshiping the almighty. Although both are forms of praising the Louvores God and thanking him for everything He has bestowed upon humanity, there are still certain norms one has to abide by. These two concepts are not separate but they have a distinct feature of their own. Resultantly, owing to their minor differences, they actually end up complementing and supplementing each other.
There are a few differences’ which we can figure out very easily:
- Praise has no time bound rules or regulations attached to it. Furthermore, there is no single method or style of praising. On the other hand, the ways of worshiping are very much restricted by the Bible. Worshiping is not a simple process’ you have to know the rules and the rituals to do justice to it.
- Worshiping is often confined within the set backdrop of Church while praising can be done anywhere.
- After worshiping you can always praise the God with praise songs. The two concepts complement each other very well. Praise songs are generally sung once you are done with your prayers and worshiping rituals are over.
- It is a known fact that both types of actions are done in order to praise the God and thank him for all that He has done for us. Worship is a way of reminding ourselves of the divine presence. It reminds us of his omnipresence. Praise songs are actually meant to thank God for all that he has blessed us with.
