Worship: the Ministry of the Holy Spirit from Creation to Glorification

One of the most important questions anyone could ever ask is the question concerning the worship of the almighty God of Scripture. What does it mean to worship God, and how are we to worship Him are considerations of eternal importance to every man, woman, and child. That we are to worship God is a fact that is known by every person who has ever lived, or shall live, since God makes it known to all men. “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened” (Romans 1:18-21). According to the testimony of Scripture, all men are duty bound to bow down in humble adoration and worship their sovereign Creator. To rebel against this command, as do all those apart from faith in Jesus Christ, or to worship Him according to one’s own imagination, as do many professing Christians, is done at the peril of one’s own soul. God will not be worshipped in any other way but that which He has prescribed in His Word (Deut. 12:1-5). This is clearly seen in the account of Cain and Abel (Genesis 4:3-7). Other revealing Scriptures showing God’s attitude towards those who approach Him wrongly in worship can be seen in the accounts of Nadab and Abihu in Leviticus 10:1-3, and that of Uzzah in 2 Samuel 6:7. Clearly these accounts show that God will be worshipped only as He has prescribed.
