We consider worship to be a great privilege. God is our Creator, He made us and knows everything about us. Incredible as it may seem mankind actually despises God, as we did as well. But God has been gracious to us and given us a desire to worship Him, not because of anything in us but because of His love. What better way to start the week than to join with other people who have been given the same desire to glorify and enjoy God in worship.
The Bible is central in all we do in worship. We sing to God using the 150 songs that God has given us specifically for that purpose. We read from the Bible because it is God’s word to us. It tells us what we need to know about ourselves, God, and the only way of salvation, so that we can be with God in heaven for eternity. We listen to our minister preaching from the Bible, because God tells us that faith comes through hearing the Word of God preached, as does the knowledge of how we can live to enjoy God and our lives to the full. We also obey the command of God given in the Bible to return to him a portion of the money that He gives to us.
Our worship of God is not about us. Our worship is about God. We get together to worship Him. It’s not designed to make us feel good or bad. It’s designed so that we can say to God thank you for all that you have given to us and please teach and help us to live as lovers of You! It’s all about God. When we get that sorted, everything falls into place!
