We worship what we can’t understand
Ps 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;
Hab 2:20 But the LORD is in his holy temple;
let all the earth be silent before him."
John 4:24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must
worship in spirit and in truth.
2Chron 5: 13 The trumpeters and singers joined in unison, as with one voice, to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, they raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang:
"He is good;
his love endures forever."
Then the temple of the LORD was filled with a cloud,
John 9: 38 Then the man said, "Lord, I believe," and he worshiped him.
O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.
I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.
2Sam 21:24 No, I insist on paying you for it.
I will not sacrifice to the LORD my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing.
Your burnt offerings are not acceptable;
your sacrifices do not please me."
Ps 50:15 Call upon me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you will honor me."
Ps 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands
- (People have worshipped the stars for centuries. God is bigger)
Ps 100:4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
Phil 2: 9-11Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
Mt 8:2 A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, "Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean."
Rev 5:12 In a loud voice they sang:
"Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!"
13Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing:
"To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!"
