I. Why Should We Worship Regularly?
Perhaps some want to know the answer to why should we worship on a regular basis. Perhaps some want to know how many times they should be at church. I believe that there are several reasons why we should worship together on a regular basis.
a. We Were Created to Worship
I want you to know that God does not need out love and acceptance of him to make himself happy. Granted, he wants us to love him more than anything else and he wants us to be with Him more than anything else. Still, we must understand that we were created to worship. I believe this is why every civilization that has ever lived has had some idea of worshiping a god of some type. God didnít create us because he was lonely, but he created us to be in fellowship with him, and so that we might bring praise to Him for who He is and what He has done. So, worship is what we were intended to do when we were created.
b. We Are Privileged to Worship
Not only do we have an obligation to meet together to worship, but also it is a privilege to worship God. As far as I know every major religion has times set aside for corporate worship on a regular basis, and granted I do not have an insiderís perspective on those religions, I do not hear of their people questioning the idea of worshiping their god and many of them do it faithfully. Granted we are not part of a religion where we earn our salvation by worshiping or doing certain rituals, we are under grace. Many people see that as their obligation to worship is lowered, but rather I want to suggest that is the exact reason we should desire to worship regularly. We should desire to worship God because of what he has done for us. Sure, I think that we have a divine command to worship regularly, but our reason for worship shouldnít be because we have to, but because we want to, because God is good. It is a privilege to be able to worship God. Most other religions have a god that is distant from them, and in their worship they go through meaningless rituals in order to please that god. We though have a God that through our worship we can draw near to. Though God is the creator of the whole universe, though he is holy and has the power to give and take life, we have the ability to come into his throne room and worship him. Worship is not just an obligation, but is also a privilege.
c. We Express our Hearts in Worship
Our worship to God is a way to express what we feel about God in a special way. Worship is not about just coming to church, or going through motions, it is revealing to God that we love him, that we need him, and that we appreciate all he does for us. If you read the Psalms you get the idea that David through his worship reveals his heart to God. Often times there are words we cannot express to God because we cannot put how we feel into words, our worship is laying that before God and publicly and
