Worship Is Like Languages of Love Each of us expresses our love differently, such as with -words -tangible gifts -service -physical closeness and touch, or -time. Each of us is impressed by different things, depending upon who we are, what we have done, or what been through; thus our worship language is distinct. -Learn to express worship sincerely in a way that is authentically you. -And then grow in new ways you can express the worth of God.
