Because God Is God and He Is Worthy
Exodus 3:14 – And God said to Moses, I AM THAT I AM
Revelation 5:12 – “Worthy is the Lamb” – (we will repeat this forever)
Psalms 65:1 – Praise is due to you, O God, in Zion
This is the beginning and ending point of everything that has to do with worship. We worship God because He is God, period! He holds the position of all authority, perfection and beauty. Thus, the only right response that we, His creation should give is to worship and affirm all that is already true of Him.
According to the dictionary worship means “to give honor, homage, reverence, respect, adoration, praise, or glory to a superior being.” God demands worship not because He needs it, but because we need it. It aligns us with the truth that He and He alone is worthy.
This is also why we should trust Him with our lives and with those (this side of heaven) unanswerable questions.
Psalms 115:3 – Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him.
While us mere mortals are arguing about what God does and does not do, He is still the one who is reigning on the throne. Worship helps us embrace this sometimes hard to fathom truth!
