David Jeremiah 14 April 2022 Daily Devotional MESSAGE
There’s a philosophy blowing around the Church that we should worship God because of what it does for us. This philosophy shows up in some of our modern songs. Other times the idea may come from our pastors or worship leaders: “Let’s praise the Lord and worship Him, for worship breaks down our barriers, removes our chains, conquers the enemy, brings our hearts from the dust, and wins our victories.”
Those things may truly be byproducts of worship, results which God ordains for our benefit; but they are never the reason for our worship. We worship God for who He is—the eternal Creator, robed in light, crowned with glory, transcending the universe, yet loving His creation. We praise the three-in-one God for His inexpressible greatness and His endless layers of infinite qualities. We worship and bow down before the Lord our Maker.
Yes, as we worship Him, our own hearts are restored. But never confuse the byproducts with the reason. The reason is—God and God alone!
Let everything that lives reserve its truest praise for God and God alone.
Phill McHugh, “God and God Alone”
