Why Worship?

And they were singing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb.
—Revelation 15:3

When you come together in worship with God’s people, something wonderful happens. God is omnipresent, which means that He is present everywhere at the same time. But He manifests His presence and reveals Himself in a unique way when we gather for worship and Bible study. When you unplug from that, you’re missing out on a significant thing God wants to do in your life.

From Genesis to Revelation, our faith is one of worship. In Heaven we’re going to sing, and Revelation 15 gives us a glimpse of this: “I saw before me what seemed to be a glass sea mixed with fire. And on it stood all the people who had been victorious over the beast and his statue and the number representing his name. They were all holding harps that God had given them. And they were singing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb” (verses 2–3 NLT).

We’ll be worshiping in Heaven, so let’s get in practice now. The Lord wants to hear us verbalize our praise. Doesn’t God know that we love Him? Yes, but He wants to hear you proclaim it. Psalm 106:1 tells us to “give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever” (NLT).

Did you know that your worship is a witness? We read in Acts 2 that the first-century church was “praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved” (verse 47 NLT). They were a worshipping church.

There is a definite connection there. When nonbelievers see believers give praise to God, especially when things are hard, it’s a powerful testimony.

When you worship God, you’re doing what God created you to do.
