We are all called to worship.
The writer of Hebrews points out to his readers that according to the Psalm, all of the angels are to worship Jesus. While all the angels have specific roles that God has placed them in, we see here that they are all to worship him no matter what job they have. As we learned in the sermon, this is one of the very things that the angels do that makes Jesus better than them.
Truth be told, that verse applies to us as believers as well. While God has called some to be ministers, some to be teachers, some to be missionaries, He calls all of us to worship Him. When we worship Jesus, He gets our full attention, and it’s all about Him. Worship is how we show Jesus how much He means to us and can be done in many different ways. When we are cheerfully serving Jesus, who by His very nature is better than we are, we are, in fact worshiping Him.
Too many times when we think of worshiping Jesus, we automatically go to Sunday mornings with the Praise Band singing, the music, then the pastor preaching. The Sunday morning worship experience is just one small, although highly important, form of worship. As we go through our day to day lives, we should constantly worship Jesus because of what He has done for us and who He is. Worshiping Him daily can be through various ways such as devotions time, singing the songs in our vehicles loudly—where thankfully no one can hear us—and so many other ways. The act of worship is a continuous act, one that goes on every day and all day. Just as we read in Psalm 71:8, “My mouth is filled with our praise, and with your glory all the day.”
As we go throughout this week and every other week, let’s remember to worship the One whose name is above all other names.
