Worship comes from an Old English word that mean “worthiness.” Today, as then, worship means to honor, reverence, and declare the worthiness of the one being worshiped. As Christians, we know that true worship is not about us. It is not for our enjoyment, but for God’s pleasure. Its goal is not to generate feelings and have experiences, but to proclaim his worthiness.
True Christian worship centers on the Lord Jesus Christ, because He is worthy. He is worthy, first of all, because he is our creator (Revelation 4:11), but also because he is our redeemer (Revelation 5:9-12).
