The Purpose of Praise and Worship
Have you ever heard of an explorer finding a new tribe or culture that doesn't worship? Worship is a natural instinct and a basic need for every person. A simple definition of worship is to regard with great devotion or to honor as a divine being. Take a second to think about what you are most devoted to in this life and ask yourself, "Is it worthy of my devotion; do I worship a divine being? Since we all worship, we should question the reason for this desire. The most logical conclusion is that we were created by a higher being for the very purpose of worship. The ongoing quest of man is to find answers to the fundamental questions of human origin, human nature, and human destiny.
It is essential that every pastor and church answer this question for themselves. It is time to seriously consider from a broader perspective the vital role that worship plays in the life of the congregation. The very first and primary reason for worship is to minister to the Lord. If the main purpose for worship is to bless and glorify the Lord then why am I upset when it does not seem to bless me? The question should not be whether the worship service blessed me; the question is, did it bless God? It is not what I thought of the worship service that matters—it is what God thought of it!
