Why Do We Worship?

“Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.”

1 Corinthians 3:18

Ponder This

Why would we worship? That’s what God wants of you. Say to yourself, “God wants me to worship.” We become like what we worship. That’s the reason idolatry is such a sin. First, the man molds the idol, and then the idol molds the man. We become like what we worship. That’s true in the negative sense, but it’s also true in the positive sense. The more you worship God, the more you will become like God.

When you worship God, you increasingly become like what you worship, and God’s fire will be in you. As you contemplate the Lord, as you worship the Lord, as you keep your heart open to the Lord, you will be changed to be more like the Lord Jesus Christ.

Consider this question: Do other people see Jesus in you? Answer this sincerely in your heart. Are you being changed day-by-day into the glory of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?

  • When was a season in your life when you were being changed day-by-day into the image of Jesus? What has changed? What has stayed the same?
  • What does it look like to worship in your day-to-day life?
