A Good Question

Kim asks for opinions on this statement: Music is the language of worship.

Here's how I responded in the comments on her blog:
Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. (Romans 12:1 NASB)

I think Paul is telling us that a worshipful attitude works itself out in service to God, doing all those things listed in the rest of the book of Romans. You know, like renewing our minds, loving the brethren, living peacably, submitting to our governing authorities, etc., etc...

So I'd say the "language of worship" (whatever that means) is right conduct. We communicate our worshipful attitude by living our lives rightly.

What say ye? What do you think is "the language of worship"?

[Update: John at Blogotional continues the conversation with What is Worship? You'll want to read the comments at the link to Kim's blog given above, and the comments here, too.]
