Why do we worship?
This question gives us our this week focus on this lesson of worship. There are somethings in life that just happen spontaneously without involving our thinking. This  occurs most of the times when we are born or raised in a certain, to a point that we do not take time purposely to ask ourselves why do we do what we do!

Different people worship God for different reasons. Some do worship because it is a part of being a Christian, others because they are used to that, there are others also who worship God just because some other people do so they also want to look spiritual. 
I want us to take a look at the biblical perspectives upon answering this questions "why do we worship?"

The basic answer to this is, we worship God for who He is! He is a mighty God! Our eternal destiny depends on our worship of the true living God. And that is why God does not want us to worship other gods.
 Exodus 20:4-6 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand [ generations] of those who love me and keep my commandments.NIV
And God is a jealous God, we belong to Him and therefore we should worship only Him.

It is up to us to take this as a challenge and may God help us so that as we worship, it should really come from the inside out of us. We should take a step further in worship.
