As creatures, we can't help but worship. We worship our children, our careers, our dreams, and deities of all sorts. The question is not whether we worship, but who and what. According to Jesus, God expects His people to worship Him. In John 4:23, he tells a young woman that God “is seeking” worshipers who will worship Him “in spirit and truth.” Worship is obviously important to God, so it ought to be important to His people as well.
If the gospel of Jesus Christ really is good news, it will lead us to joyful response. Worship in its purest form then, is when we gather to "proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light." (1 Peter 2:9) At First Presbyterian Church, we place a high priority on gathered, public worship each week, believing that it is through worship that we meet with God and are changed.
