Worship God for who he is!

Posted on June 13, 2015 · Posted in Worship


We don’t worship God to appease him.

We don’t give to God to impress him.
We don’t love God to flatter him.
We don’t obey God to make him like us.
We don’t pray to God to show our piety.
We don’t praise God because he needs us to.

We worship, give, love, obey, pray, and praise God simply because he is who he is!
Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!

“Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?”

“Who has ever given to God,
that God should repay them?”

For from him and through him and for him are all things.
To him be the glory forever! Amen.
Romans 11:33-36
