5. The Gift of Truth
Lastly, but in no way is it less in value, is the truth that the word of God actually declares that in God’s plan for humanity, that we were made for worship. It has always been in the Father’s heart to create beings that will discover His goodness and respond in worship. Jesus came not only to forgive us of our sins, but to reveal to us our true nature as humans. Beings created for the physical and spiritual world, designed for devotion and wired for worship.
All over scripture, the Spirit of God reveals that our true nature is one of worship.
But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. – John 4:23-24
Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! – Psalm 95:6
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. – 1 Peter 2:9
The word of God has made it clear. Although we come into this world knowing nothing about who we are and what our purpose is, Jesus came to open our eyes to the reality that God the Father made us to be in communion with Him. And upon realizing this truth, the response is worship. It’s the natural response to those who understand that the Father’s heart is for them and that He made us not just to live a short life on earth, but to spend eternity with Him.
How could we not take time to wonder, to lift our voice, and take God up on His promise?
You and I were made for this. We were made to worship.
