Quick Answer: NO, there is no right way to worship God.

Tim Mossholder

Long Answer:

Since I’ve been churching from home during quarantine, I noticed that I don’t feel pressure to worship God a certain way. I can do whatever I’m moved to do and I feel much more relaxed doing so.

The worst part of church is when the worship leader forces people to but their hands up and they say things like, “give it all up to God” or imply that you aren’t praising Jesus unless you are lifting up your hands.

There are many verses about lifting your hands to God: Psalm 63:4, Psalm 28:1-2, Psalm 141:2, Lamentations 3:41, 1 Timothy 2:8

But none of these explicitly state that the only way to praise God is to life your hands.

If I am moved by the Spirit to lift my hands one day, I will. But if I’m swaying and praising God in that way, that is ok too. Both are equally as valid.

Lifting hands is a symbolic act like getting baptized.

Praise God however in whatever way you want to.
