“Made to Worship”

Categories: Shepherd's Corner

The first song I remember my mother and grandmother singing to me was, “Jesus Loves Me.” As a three-year-old I sat on my grandmother’s lap and asked her to sing it over and over again. We all still sing  or hum this song to our children today whenever they need it. Why? We were made to worship.


To worship God is to walk into a familiar, welcoming place. To worship God is to know we are truly home, acting on a desire deep in our souls. Long before we rationally understand the truth of Christ, we want to praise someone or something for bringing love, joy, and hope into the world.


We are made to be worshipers - worshipers of God from the heart - thinking and working worshipers. Teach us to worship, Lord. Not just to be

emotionally ecstatic, but true-hearted worship of You, my spirit with Your Spirit.


God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. (John 4:24) 

Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. (Psa 95:6-7)
