How to Worship God

How does God want to be worshiped (Rev. 14:7)?

God wants us to worship Him in a certain way.  This Way is by practicing kindness one to another and being honest in all our dealings.  He wants us to continue living this Way, waiting for the return of Jesus Christ (Hosea 12:6).  He wants us to do good, instead of practicing evil, so God will be with us (Amos 5:14-15).

God has told us what He considers good.  Yes, this is to practice kindness and honesty, to walk as God walks, and stay humble and teachable (Micah 6:8; Eph. 5:1).

God continually warned His people in the past to dispense true Justice - be honest in all dealings with men - and practice kindness and compassion toward others.  He told them to take care of the widows and orphans in the land.  He told them to make sure they did not oppress the stranger (one who is of a different nationality) in their land.   God wants equal opportunity for each man, so He said not to devise evil toward another person (Zech. 7:9-10).

People of the past would not change.  Instead, they made their hearts like flint.   They would not practice righteousness daily toward their fellow man for God!   God sent His prophets to warn the people to change and to practice righteousness.   This was the everlasting gospel of the prophets, and it was the message that got them stoned (Heb. 4:2; 11:35-37; Rev. 6:9).

The way that a man should live is not in himself (Jer. 10:23).  His heart is desperately wicked (Jer. 17:9). Instead, we are to trust in God and not lean on our own understanding (Prov. 3:5-6).  We are to acknowledge Him in all our ways, saying, "If the Lord wills" (James 4:15).

Pray to Him!  Depend on Him!  Put your faith in Him!  Live for Him!   Talk like He does!  Walk like He does!  Sing songs to Him.  This is how you show your love to Him!  This is how you truly worship Him in Spirit and in truth (John 4:23-24).  This is true worship of God.
