We are God’s Creation and we have been created to worship, to praise the Creator and the Bible speaks to us about that in many verses, which we will see today so that we know completely that we should worship God with our lives, that this is a divine mandate.
1 – Bless God
We must bless our God with our mouth wherever we are gathered:
Bless ye God in the congregations, even the Lord, from the fountain of Israel.
2 – Praise the name of our God
Throughout the book of psalms we learn that we should praise the name of our Lord, and one of the verses that urges us to that is the following verse:
Praise ye the Lord. Praise, O ye servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord.
3 – All nations should praise God
No matter where you are from, what country, what town you belong, praise God.
O praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
4 – Big and small praise God
No matter the social status, your economic position, your age, your sex, praise God:
11 Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:
12 Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:
13 Let them praise the name of the Lord: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.
5 – Everything that breathes
Every living being praise our God, alleluia.
Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.
6 – Pray everywhere
No matter where we are, we must pray and raise our hands, but holy hands, not looking for quarrels, but raising our hands to praise our God, King and Creator.
I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.
1 Timothy 2:8
7 – Fear of God
There will be a great day of judgment in which we will have to fear and give glory to the One who did everything
Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
8 – Announce His virtues
We, the chosen generation, the royal priesthood, have the mission of announcing the virtues of Him who brought us out of darkness into His admirable light:
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
1 Peter 2:9
9 – Let’s praise Him and let’s talk about his wonders
In addition to praising Him and invoking His name, we must count everywhere the great works and wonders He has done with us and with His people.
O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.
2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.
10 – We are created to adore Him
What were we created for? To adore Him, to bless His Name, to publish everything He has done for us!
This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.
And there are more reasons in the Scriptures to worship and praise our Lord. These are only some verses contemplated in the Bible, but I assure you that there are hundreds of verses that tell us that we must worship the only true God. So, our prayer is that God will distribute peace among us and give us spirit to worship Him in spirit and truth.
