So how do we know that God doesn't demand worship? How do we understand the narrative of God with us? We look to Jesus. Jesus is God with us. When we see Jesus, we see who God is. We see what God wants us to know about Himself. We see how He wants us to act and to be. We see the true narrative of God, not the distorted "high and mighty" view of God.
Why do we worship God? Not because He demands it, but because He has earned it. He is worthy. He brings freedom. He saves us. He is creator. He brings life. He heals. He forgives. He brings peace. He helps us in times of need. He teaches us. He loves us with an everlasting love.
He is worthy.
We come together as a body of believers to make a big deal about God because He is a BIG DEAL.
How big of a deal is He to you?
