Faith Child – Worship – our highest praise

Worship is the expression of loving reverence and honor bestowed upon a being “worthy” of such reverence and honor. With reference to God, worship has to do with God’s “worth.”

The word “worship” originates from the Old English word, “weorthscipe” which literally means “worth + ship.” In a practical sense, worship is the expression of tribute to God’s “worth” — His praiseworthy nature (Psalm 145:3; Psalm 147:5), His attributes and works (Psalm 66:1-12). Because God is indeed “worthy” of our praise, we as worshippers praise God, glorify God, and honor God.

In Revelation 4:9-11,   the beasts and the twenty-four elders worship, casting their crowns before the throne saying:

You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created” (Revelation 4:11).

In  Revelation 5:13,  innumerable hosts in heaven and earth as well as the twenty-four elders worship God

Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!

 

Why was the Lamb of God to “receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing”? (Revelation 5:12).

Because He was “worthy”  to receive such (Revelation 4:11; Revelation 5:9). And because He was “worthy,” all creatures in heaven and on earth were found worshipping the Lamb of God (Revelation 5:9-14).

Brethren, the sheer joy of singing hymns of praise and devotion, only comes about when we fully appreciate and express the “worthiness” of God and the Lamb, thus giving all praise, glory, and honor to them.

In our worship, let us truly express our “joy” to the Lord for what He has done for us (John 3:16-17; Romans 5:1-11).

    The highest worship is to honor God with our obedience to his instructions. Samuel told King Saul that God desired obedience rather than sacrifice.
