The object of our worship is Jesus Christ. He demonstrated His love for us while we were still unbelievers by dying on the cross to provide us the gift of everlasting life (John 3:16; Romans 5:8). Because He demonstrated His love for us, we are motivated to love Him (1 John 4:19). Worship motivated by love is acceptable to God (Isaiah 56:6-7; 2 Corinthians 5:5-9).
To understand the process of worship, understand that God is a God of order and there is a process for all things. Take for example, Jesus’ instruction on how to pray (Matt 6:9-13)
“9 Pray then like this: “Our
Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.
10 Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread, 12 and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil”.
