Worship Him, All People!

Psalm 95:1-6 

1 Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. 2 Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. 3 For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. 4 In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. 5 The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. 6 Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker!

Worship can be an interesting concept if you are not Christian. What do you mean, I worship someone? I don’t worship anyone else because that is weird. People don’t think that we as humans are worshiping something on a constant basis. We worship stuff, people, concepts. How we are created is to worship something, meaning, to admire and be captivated by something more than ourselves. Our life will be so much better if we know how to navigate our sense of worship and adoration on a daily basis. When we see the magnificent beauty of the mountains, the sunsets, all we want to is to be captivated by the magnificence of it and never leave the moment. We see that beauty in people, in our choices, certain characteristics such as selflessness or courage.

There are many things in life that bring refreshment in our soul and inspire us to press into deeper meaning of living. How to channel our desire to worship is a significant and crucial part of Christian life. As Christians, we know that we are created to worship God and Him only. However, sometimes the concept of worship can be translated based on our culture and context. For example, in our current culture, worship is often understood as music and singing. Music and singing has a way to open our hearts and makes it easier to soften our hearts so that our hearts can encounter the beauty of God and that is a good thing. However, music is not what worship is about. It is a tool for us to invite God into our hearts and mind. Some people might engage God better through writing or conversations with good people. And when we find our own way to connect with God, in worship, there is a beautiful process of devaluing what we have in life. When we sing, God is the most precious jewel, we need to engage with our hearts and mind and soul, that we do not see other precious things in life more preciously than how we see God.

God is the Most Worthy of all beings within all the realm of existence. When we exalt Him, we don’t actually make His place higher. He is already highest. However, what we can do is to lowering ourselves before Him. Of course it is not about lowering and devaluing the image of God in us. However, it is lowering and putting our face down before God as we devaluing the worth that the life can offer. There is no one like God and that confession can be proven by how we hold things loose. In comparison of the worthiness of God, what we have will not have a place to stand. He is the greatest King of all gods. May you adore Him and be captivated by God.
