To worship God is to express our love and awe of who He is. In Isaiah 66:1 God says “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool.” He is the Creator of the universe and everything in it, which includes little ones like me and you. How wonderful and amazing is that!
WORSHIP is what God is all about. Worship should matter to us simply because it matters to God. And worship matters to God because He knows He is worthy. I know that does not sound too persuasive in our me-centered culture, but it is true. Worship does not begin with us. Worship begins and ends with God. And God is worthy of all praise, from all people, for all time.
God is the center of everything that exists. He alone is the Creator. Sustainer. Originator. Life Giver. Beauty Maker. That’s why every glimpse into God’s presence throughout the pages of His Word affirms that God dwells in endless praise.
Notice the angel host of Revelation, never ceasing to say, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come” (Revelation 4:8). Never do they stop. Day and night they proclaim, always affirming His infinite worth. And “the heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands” (Psalm 19:1). Why? Because that’s what they were created to do, day after day to proclaim that He is huge, All-powerful, Glorious, Limitless Beyond our wildest imagination.
And you know what’s really wild? This massive God, who has never known any shortage of worship, wants to be worshiped…by you. Wow….. isn’t that really amazing. It’s not that He needs any more worship to be worthy. It’s not that God needs our worship–but that He wants it. He wants it because He deserves it. And He commands it because to do so is the most loving thing we can possibly do.
In the days where ‘worship’ is turned down to be another form of music, we realize the fact that worship is not an art but a HEART THING. Kathryn Scott says, “I think that anywhere there are hearts turned to God – that are willing to be transparent and vulnerable – that’s where there is still vibrant worship.” It might look different in different contexts, but it’s still the type of worship the Father is looking for. Along the way, the melodies will change, and the lyrics depict different aspects of God … but the vibrancy is all to do with what is going on in changed lives.
