What does the Bible say about worshipping God?

By: Douglas M. Williams, Sr

“Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness” (Psalm 29:2).

“Exalt the Lord our God, and worship at His footstool (holy hill) for the Lord our God is holy” (Psalm 99:5,9).

“I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies” (2 Samuel 22:4).

“You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things” (Revelation 4:11).

“Worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water” (Revelation 14:7).

The true God of heaven is to be worshipped in the way the Bible teaches (John 14:23-24). The Bible tells us that worship may be vain, ignorant, or will worship and these are not acceptable to God. As shown in the above verses, we emphasize how God is worthy of our worship because of who He is, and with His power, glory, and holiness He created all things.

Jesus the Son of God along with the Father and Holy Spirit make up the Godhead or trinity (Colossians 2:9). We worship God through Jesus Christ who is our mediator and intercessor (1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 7:25), thereby worshipping Christ.

The song, “Worthy Art Thou” reminds us of Revelation 5:12. This son was written in 1930 by Tillit S. Teddlie.

“Worthy of praise is Christ our Redeemer; Worthy of glory, honor and power! Worthy of all our soul’s adoration; Worthy art Thou! Worthy art Thou!”

“Worthy of riches, blessings and honor, Worthy of wisdom, glory and power! Worthy of earth and heaven’s thanksgiving. Worthy art Thou! Worthy art Thou!
