Why We Worship 2


If someone were to ask you today why you worship God would you know how to answer?

We dealt more with that in the first one in the series featuring GOD IS GREAT

                               
         Today let's look at
                                                        Revelation 4 v 10 - 11

        the four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

If the 24 elders who are before the throne of God worship Him because He is worthy then we can not disagree but need to proclaim exactly the same thing now here before we need to do it in Heaven.

     Some people might say
  
                              "Let's Practice what we will be doing for eternity"
                       
                   but instead we should say

"Let's worship and let's do it now" 


                                                                    because

                                                         


                                                           now and for eternity.



Do you agree?




Each Sunday I will be doing a "Why We Worship" spot so why not drop in regularly and we can encourage each other.

You can also sign up to follow this blog by email at the top right hand side and get a reminder of the blog posts.

  4. Worship is not something that we will do one day when we are in His Presence but it is what we do the moment we come to know God. Knowing Him - who He is and what He does for us I just can't help myself but live to worship Him.

  5. Yes, God is worthy! We don't need any other reason, though there are so many! But He being worthy encompasses them all!

    Blessings, Joan

    1. True Joan we don't need any other reason but so many people are searching for reasons to do everything instead of just resting in Him and doing what comes naturally whe we do rest - worship from our hearts.

  6. Well said - simply the truth is all that is needed, too many words would get in the way of that. Thank you for sharing with Cozy Reading Spot
