Why would God require his people to worship Him? Worship is for God, but it also benefits those who worship Him. Worship keeps our lives in order. It helps us remember all that God has done for us and is a way of thanking Him for it. Worship also causes us to rely less on our own ability to control events around us. When we worship, we throw off the pressing demands of life to simply enjoy God’s presence. We keep ourselves from the sorrow of following false gods that can harm us. Worship is not only appropriate, it is essential to the well-being of our spiritual lives.
