Instead of being a worship leader, be a lead worshiper. Matt Redman

True worship is always a verb

Psalm 134:2 NKJV
2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, And bless the Lord.
Psalm 95:1–7 NIV
1 Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. 2 Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. 3 For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. 4 In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. 5 The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. 6 Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; 7 for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.

Three things to avoid that hinder our worship.

1. Allowing ourselves to be distracted.

Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.

3. Allowing our sin to keep us from worship.

Romans 12:1 NIV

Proskuneo - Literally means to kiss the hand of the King.

John 4:23 NIV
23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

Worship is our response, both personal and corporate to God - for who He is and what He’s done! Expressed in and by things we say and the way we live. Louie Giglio

Psalm 34:3 NIV
3 Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.
