Why We Worship
We worship God because he is worthy of our praise. Think about it. The Bible tells us that God created all that is. The Book of Job ascribes to God great power and great compassion (Job 38 & 42). The Book of Romans tells us that God has provided us all we need to see His divine nature and eternal power (Romans 1:20). But perhaps most of all the Bible tells us that while we were still sinners, God demonstrated His great love for us by providing us a Savior in Jesus Christ, who took our sins upon Himself on the cross. (Romans 5:8).
We worship God because only He is worthy. It’s not our job, our family or our money that deserves our praise, but the Almighty God who loves us more than we can ever image.
Psalm 86:9-17 (NIV) All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name. For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God. Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever. For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave. The arrogant are attacking me, O God; a band of ruthless men seeks my life– men without regard for you. But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. Turn to me and have mercy on me; grant your strength to your servant and save the son of your maidservant. Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
