If we look at the title critically, we could see that it entails ‘WHO’ and ‘WORSHIP’. I will like to say that everyone irrespective of race or age, seeks who to worship. It is a craven from the heart because there is a void which can only be filled with a personality or a being. It is synonymous in nature as to Man or a woman seeking for whom to love. In the light of this term, I would like to define what worship is. Worship is the act or feeling of expression to a higher being with respect to provision, protection or guidance. In the World, specifically in the part of the world where I came from, there are several deities been worship for different purpose and event of life. It is included gods of Iron, harvest, thunder, protection, vengeance, fertility, etc. To worship has become an act that people engage in daily even with little or no knowledge of who or whom they worship. Some of the foundation knowledge as to whom they worship were obtained from their parent, society, or even friends. The question as stated is, who do you worship? People determine who they worship based on circumstances, some by the assistance that was offered that is beyond their reach.
I will list below, several of whom people seek to worship?
- Almighty GOD
- Animals (Elephant, Snake, Goat, Cow, etc.)
- Carved Wooden Objects
- Heavenly Beings (Angels, Sun, Moon and Stars)
These lists are not limited to that which was mentioned above, as many of unknown sources of worship which have gave so many a comfort in times of distress. However, who are we meant to worship? Looking at the work of creation, all that is beneath the first enlisted are a creation of the Almighty God. Who are we supposed to worship? The creator of the creation. Remember the account at the base of mount Sinai, when the children of Israel dessert the one true GOD, by concluding that Moses was dead and decided to take laws into their hand by seeking a means of worship (generating a Golden Calf). God was annoyed with them because they have failed to realize who they are to worship. The new testament gave a clearer view of whom to be worship and how to worship. In John 4 verse 24, the scripture says “they that worship (GOD Almighty) must worship him in spirit and in truth, for the father seek such to worship him.”
Do not be deceive by the activities of men, so many have made alternative media of worship. The God Almighty is who everyone should worship. He created us and not we ourselves, how then can we worship what was also a creation like us. It makes absolutely no sense at all!
Several worship an unknown God but it is paramount to know whom you worship and to be sure of the source. Let us worship the One that sit upon the throne, the creator of the whole universe, the one that place the breath in Man, the One that rules in the affairs of Men, the One that dresses the firmament with his glory, that pours rain upon the just and the unjust, the that can kill and make alive, the One that does whatsoever he likes and no one can question his authority, the savior of the World, the Captain of the heaven’s armies. It is an unending one, when trying to quantify the God of the universe.
HE DESERVES OUR WORSHIP, DAY AND NIGHT, IN-SEASON AND OUT-OF-SEASON, IN PLENTY AND IN LACK, IN SORROW AND IN JOY, IN TRIBULATION AND IN LAUGHTER.
PRAISE THE LAMB OF GOD THAT TAKES AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD, HE LIVES FOREVER AND EVER.
GLORY, HONOR AND ADORATION BE ASCRIBE UNTO HIM, NOW AND ALWAYS.
