The definition of Adore is: to worship; to offer honor and respect; to express reverence and homage.
"Adoration is intense admiration culminating in reverence and worship, together with outward acts and attitudes which accompany such reverence. Adoration is perhaps the highest form of worship, involving the reverent and rapt contemplation of the Divine perfections and prerogatives, the acknowledgement of them in words of praise, together with visible symbols and postures that express the adoring attitude of the creature in the presence of his Creator" (Blue Letter Bible- by D. Miall Edwards)
To adore someone is to have intense admiration for them. The Webster dictionary says that to admire someone is to regard them with wonder and delight or to hold them in high esteem. I am convicted by this. Do I adore my Lord, really? Do I show intense admiration for my Savior? This is an area of my walk with God that I need to immensely improve on. I need to delight in the Lord. Just the word delight paints such a visual picture in my mind. Do I find delight in the Lord? I honestly would have to say most days I get caught up in the busyness of being a mom and wife and forget all about the awesomeness of God. I need to refocus my life. I need to show the Lord the high esteem that is HIS due.
Psalm 100 speaks of delight in the Lord. It gives praise to God and the writer shows pure adoration for His Creator.
