Biblical worship is often corrupted by boredom, lack of purpose, and nonparticipational behavior which leads the congregation to go through the motions without genuine heart involvement. The opposite extreme offers little more than secular entertainment with a religious veneer, a packaged plastic program so perfect and professional that even the most sincere worshiper can scarcely break through its shrink- wrapped design to get his hands on true worship ( Gangel BSac 142:566 (Apr 85)

8 2. Theology of Worship Seminar on Preaching and Worship Seminar on Preaching and Worship 8 The duty to worship God is based upon the fact that He is the Creator and that to Him all other beings owe their existence. And wherever, in the Bible, His claim to reverence and worship, above the gods of the heathen, is presented, there is cited the evidence of His creative power. "All the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens." Psalm 96:5 (Great Controversy ). Worship the Creator

9 2. Theology of Worship Seminar on Preaching and Worship Seminar on Preaching and Worship 9 "Thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God Himself that formed the earth and made it:... I am the Lord; and there is none else." Isaiah 45:18. Says the psalmist: "Know ye that the Lord He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves.... " Psalms 100:3. And the holy beings who worship God in heaven state, as the reason why their homage is due to Him: "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for Thou hast created all things." Revelation 4:11. (Great Controversy, 437). Worship the Creator

10 2. Theology of Worship Seminar on Preaching and Worship Seminar on Preaching and Worship 10 "The importance of the Sabbath as the memorial of creation is that it keeps ever present the true reason why worship is due to God"--because He is the Creator, and we are His creatures.... The true ground of divine worship, not of that on the seventh day merely, but of all worship, is found in the distinction between the Creator and His creatures. This great fact can never become obsolete, and must never be forgotten." (J. N. Andrews, History of the Sabbath, chapter 27 GC ). Worship the Creator

It may be without the attractions of any outward show; but if the members possess the principles of the character of Christ, angels will unite with them in their worship. The praise and thanksgiving from grateful hearts will ascend to God as a sweet oblation. "Give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good: For His mercy endureth forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, Whom He hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy" (Psalm 107:1-2). (PK 566).

One must also work with God to bring deliverance 'to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord" (Luke 4:18).
