One reason is because God is Worthy to be Worshiped and Adored. Another reason is because of what God did for us in sending Christ to die for us. Are we going to continue to be consumed by the duties of our daily lives, or will we realize that our ways are nothing compared to what God wants to do with us and through us?
God wants to transform us through worship. When we truly worship, we experience a complete transformation of our hearts and minds into more of what God wants us to be…..just like Jesus Christ.
Our approach to the Throne of God should consist of our hearts being willing to lay down a sacrifice of who we are completely and allowing God’s transforming power to surge through us to reveal more of who He is. God’s ways and thoughts are so much higher and mightier than ours. We worship Him because His thoughts and ways are so much higher and better than we could ever imagine. His majesty is in such splendor that we could never experience the absolute fullness even if we tried to through our whole lives.
With all these things God has done for us, how can we not realize the opportunity He provides for us to come before His Throne? No more heavy veil to lift to go into the Holy of Holies and no more only being able to give the High Priest your prayer matter. We should desire to worship because of the beautiful relationship God provides for us to have with Him. We were created in His image to be a true worshipper.
Isn’t it wonderful that God has chosen us to be His servants, created in his image, to praise him and live our lives as a continual sacrifice for Him? If we agree that it’s wonderful, then why aren’t we living it? Where is our daily remembrance and motivation to follow Him? Is Sunday morning worship going to fill us for the week?
We worship Him because of the Mighty and Loving God He is. When we make the decision that we want to approach His Throne with our hearts totally and properly focused only on Him, then we have the access to opening the floodgates.
