Many people believe that somewhere in the Bible it says you are made to worship. There are many reasons to worship God listed in the Bible, but it was Martin Luther who once said that “Man was made to worship God.” It isn’t in the Bible
Martin Luther’s logic was correct. We are made to worship God because we have a myriad of reasons to worship God
We were created with the ability to show our love, thanks, joy, in many different creative ways. Thus we were made with the ability to worship God.
Here are a few of the biblical reasons to worship God.
4 Biblical Reasons to Worship God
SO THE PEOPLE BELIEVED; AND WHEN THEY HEARD THAT THE LORD HAD VISITED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND THAT HE HAD LOOKED ON THEIR AFFLICTION, THEN THEY BOWED THEIR HEADS AND WORSHIPED.
Here we see the people of God worshiping God because He was delivering them out of the bondage of slavery. Today we have many opportunities to worship God for what He has set us free from!
1 Chronicles 16:29
GIVE TO THE LORD THE GLORY DUE HIS NAME; BRING AN OFFERING, AND COME BEFORE HIM. OH, WORSHIP THE LORD IN THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS!
When we worship God, we are giving God the glory for what He has done. We are coming before Him. In a very real sense, when you worship God, you are entering into His presence. You are coming to where He lives and giving to Him the gift you have to offer.
BUT AS FOR ME, I WILL COME INTO YOUR HOUSE IN THE MULTITUDE OF YOUR MERCY; IN FEAR OF YOU I WILL WORSHIP TOWARD YOUR HOLY TEMPLE.
Here King David is committing to be a regular worshiper of God in His house because of the mercy God has shown him. He recognizes the importance of corporate worship, where you gather with other believers to worship God. We need to worship God daily in our private lives, but we also need to worship God publicly with other believers. Both are part of the Christian experience.
AND BEHOLD, A LEPER CAME AND WORSHIPED HIM, SAYING, “LORD, IF YOU ARE WILLING, YOU CAN MAKE ME CLEAN.”
Here we see two things. One is that there is a correlation at least between worship and healing. Many times I have seen people healed both emotionally and physically during worship. Second is that if Jesus will accept the worship of an outcast like a leper, then He receives worship from anyone.
