Below is the first part of an article written by Jeremi. Worship with us!
Worship goes far beyond our circumstances. Our preferences and corporate settings are important but they are not worship, they are the medium that help to get us to that point in our spiritual journey. Worship is a relationship, a love language between us and God. It is intimate, exposed, vulnerable, and full of joy. Most of worship is done in private. We can not truly have deep worship if we rely on this interaction with Christ to only take place on a Sunday morning.
First and foremost, we must come to believe that we were created to praise God. C.S. Lewis once said, “In commanding us to glorify Him, God is inviting us to enjoy Him.” As we learn to glorify God, we will experience joy in knowing and worshipping Him. There is joy in His presence. He "literally" completes us.
When approaching worship, we should always worship God for who He is and what He has done. We praise God because He is worthy of our praise. He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the King of kings and Lord of lords. He is our Creator, Provider, Healer, Redeemer, Judge, Defender, and an infinite list of amazing attributes.
