03 Why We Worship

We worship God because He is worthy to be worshiped. We saw that the first reason He is worthy to be worshiped is because He created all things. The second reason that the angel revealed to John about why He is worthy to be worshiped is found in Revelation 5:8-10. The four living creatures and twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb of God and “sang a new song, saying, Worthy are You…for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.” He is worthy to be worshiped because He purchased us. We belong to God. He purchased us with His blood. He did not purchase us with silver or gold, but with His own precious blood (1 Peter 1:18-19).

(Rev 5:8-10)  “When He had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. {9} And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. {10} You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.”

When we enter into praise and worship, tell the Lord, “I worship You because I belong to You. You purchased and redeemed me.
