What is worship? Who do we worship? Jesus has the answer to these important questions. Every religion on earth teaches and practices their own form of worship, in fact even the most irreligious people do worship a thing, money as an example of the object of worship.
Worship is surrendering of one’s will to others. Bowing before a person or object is an outward expression of surrender. Raising of hand is a sign of surrender. The devil wanted Jesus to fall down as an act of surrender and worship him.
The decision to worship somebody requires total submission to the will of others. Nonetheless, you may worship yourself without being aware of it if you follow all your whims and caprices. You only worship a Master, you chose whoever you wanted to be your lifetime master. A master does not worship his or her servant or slave. You may make the master of yourself and gamble your soul’s future.
Jesus teaches to worship the Father in spirit and in truth. We have only one Father, therefore we serve only Him and Him alone. Jesus never asks us to worship Him but He accepts people who worshipped Him as recorded in the gospels. Jesus is Lord, whoever serve the Lord and follow His words is act of surrender.
Our voluntary service of love on a daily basis is a reasonable worship to our Father God. The worship that lacks servitude is a lip service and a highest level of hypocrisy.
According to Jesus Christ, the time has come that we can worship our Father anywhere and any place. We can pray while worshipping or we can worship while we are praying at any place, in the temple or in a closet of our home.
Our Father is seeking, wanting or desiring a worship that never ends from His worshipers. To worship The Lord God is an eternal vocation.
The devil is likewise seeking who may worship him. He will do everything and may offer everything to worship him. He would not ask less from you, he wants all of you. Guess what? The devil is a master too. He enslaves people to death.
Who do you worship? The choice is yours. Jesus said, ye cannot serve two masters. Let’s worship our Father who is also the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
