Part 3 – Worship: Why 
Revelation 4-5

Matthew 28.18-20: rationale for all we do, resources we draw from

Worship is our response to God, giving Him our allegiance, affection, and action.

Why Worship God?

Because of Who He is
  • Holiness: the display of the majesty and beauty of God.
  • Response: fall down (allegiance)
  • Response: cast crowns (affection)
  • Response: confess (action)

    Because He made us
  • Creation always owes its Creator thanks.
  • And not just us, but everything. How do you worship with that in mind?
  • Recognize the source.
  • Say thanks to the Giver.
  • Enjoy the gift.

    Because He saved us
  • He died
  • He ransomed people for God
  • He transforms lives
  • He makes us into worshippers.

    Hardest time to worship: when our circumstances go awry. 

    His character doesn’t change when our circumstances do. 

    His role doesn’t change when our circumstances do.

    His rescue doesn’t change when our circumstances do.
