Psalm 95:1-3 NIV 2011

Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord, let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods.

 

The Psalter, possibly part of temple personnel, began with a call to worship the Lord. A priest or a Levite offered this call to worship when God’s people assembled at the temple. Worshiping the Lord incorporates a profession of faith and hope in the eternal, universal God of the universe. 2 Samuel 22:47, “The Lord lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be my God, the Rock, my Savior!” Worship began by coming joyfully before the Lord. Psalm 100:2b, “Come before him with joyful song.” Ephesians 5:19b, “Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord.” Believers worship the everlasting, omnipresent, invincible Lord God.

 

Merriam Webster defines worship: to honor or reverence as a divine being or super natural being. Synonyms of worship include adore, cherish and love. After looking at the word worship it caused me to question, is that what I do when I approach God? Am I mindful of who He is and what He has done for me? He sent His Son to die in my place that I might have eternal life. Daily God is worthy of worship because He is the Lord God.

 

How will we worship God today?

 

He is worthy,

S
