Day 11 Theme: Call to Worship

O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker– Psalm 95:6

Throughout Scripture we are called to worship the Lord in various ways and by various means. We are called to give thanks, praise, and power to our God. But the practice of all of these commands and encouragements must begin with submission to God — “bow down…kneel before the Lord.”

There is no true worship without submission. We can admire Jesus, we can appreciate the selflessness and sacrifice of the cross, we can even confess that He is Lord…but if we do not submit to Him as our Lord, than we have not offered Him genuine worship.

Worshiping God begins by submitting to God’s rightful rule over us because He is “our maker.” There is no particle or person or planet that does not owe their existence to God. Because He is the creator of all things, all things owe their allegiance to Him.

None are exempted from this call—“let us worship and bow down”—because none are excepted in the description of God as their“maker.” We are every one of us summoned to the privileged position of worshiping at the feet of Jesus Christ.

Have you purposed to worship Jesus Christ today? Then you must begin by bowing down, by kneeling before Him and submitting to His rightful rule over your every thought, word, deed, and design. You must prepare to meet your maker.
