Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our Salvation. Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song. Come let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for He is our God and we are the people of His pasture, the flock under His care. Psalm 95: 1, 2, 6, and 7
Why do you think it is that we don’t WORSHIP the LORD GOD, ALMIGHTY? Could it be PRIDE? Which would definitely be a sin. Maybe it’s a little bit of UNBELIEF that God really exists, and so why should we SING or SHOUT ALOUD praises to the ROCK of our SALVATION if we don’t BELIEVE that He does exists. Because IF you don’t BELIEVE in God, He is NOT the ROCK of YOUR SALVATION. You have NO SALVATION.
Some, who are TRUE BELIEVERS, fall short of the TRUE FORM of WORSHIP. For whatever reason, they act as though God is dead, and they do not exhibit any form of TRUE WORSHIP or PRAISE. The Psalmist, instructs us on the PROPER FORM of WORSHIP. He says we are to COME before the ROCK of our SALVATION with JOY. Now, I have seen many dear saints who look like they have been baptized in PICKLE JUICE, very SOUR PICKLE JUICE at that. If we have JOY in our HEART, and we SHOULD, it should show on our faces. We NEED to come before Him with THANKSGIVING and PRAISE Him with MUSIC and SONG. HE is our ROCK and our REDEEMER. He has provided a WAY for us to ESCAPE HELL and GAIN HEAVEN. HE IS WORTHY of our PRAISE and WORSHIP.
The Psalmist, also says we NEED to BOW DOWN. Now, for some that may be difficult to do, because of health reasons. I believe that God KNOWS about our health, and if it is warranted that you cannot BOW DOWN, I think He would ACCEPT your WORSHIP and PRAISE, as long, as you do it from your HEART. We need to COME before Him with a BROKEN SPIRIT and a CONTRITE HEART. PRAISING Him because HE is the LORD and MAKER, and our GOD, and we are the PEOPLE of HIS PASTURE. And we are the flock that is under His Care! So we NEED to put into PRACTICE the TRUE FORM of WORSHIP. If you have NOT come to God for the SALVATION of your soul. You cannot TRULY WORSHIP or PRAISE Him, and if you went through the motions, but it wasn’t in your HEART, He would not ACCEPT your WORSHIP or PRAISE. In order to practice TRUE WORSHIP and PRAISE, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that JESUS died for YOU, and is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and then you should put into your DAILY PRACTICE, the TRUE FORM of WORSHIP. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
