Jesus Commands: Worship Me

Who or what do you worship?

Yourself?

The idea of having a perfect partner?

Money?

Success?

Power?

Happiness?

Jesus commands us to worship only God:

Jesus answered him, “It is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.’” (Luke 4:8)

As John Piper puts it:

Everyone in the world worships something. From the most religious to the most secular, all people value something high enough to build their lives around it. It may be God, or it may be money. But what makes it worship is the driving power of some cherished treasure that shapes our emotions and will and thought and behavior. Into this universal experience of worship Jesus demanded, “Worship [God] in spirit and truth” (John 4:24). In other words, bring your experience of worship into conformity with what is true about God, and let your spirit be authentically awakened and moved by that truth . . . worship now happens through Jesus because he himself is God. He is not simply the mediator of worship between us and the Father; he is also the one to be worshiped.(What Jesus Demands from the World)

Why should we worship Jesus?
