We worship God because He is worthy
It is in our nature to express that which we value. Read a good book and you want to tell somebody about it. See a great game and you want to talk about it. Find a great restaurant and you want to recommend it. Our delight naturally flows into praise. The Hebrew word for worship means to (ascribe worth- to respond).
Psalms 103:1-5 provides reasons for worshipping
- I have experienced God’s forgiveness and I want to declare it.
- I do believe that someday God will heal all that is broken and I want to express that
- I have been given life after death… forever with Him… and I want to share it.
- I have experienced God’s great love and compassion and I want to name that.
