We should worship the Lord simply because He demands, desires, and deserves it. However, there are some fantastic “perks” to loving and knowing our heavenly Father.
- Character development: We always become what we worship. If we focus on the world or other individuals, we’ll become like them. If we focus on God, we’ll become more like Him.
- Freedom from intimidation: See Colossians 2:6-10.
- Compassion: We naturally develop compassion for the world as we learn to look through God’s eyes.
- True satisfaction (in God): Once we’ve feasted on the bread of God, nothing else is nearly as tempting. Indeed, we can do anything! See Philippians 4:10-13.
