Topic: As a disciple one of our main goals is worshipping Jesus.
Because Of Who He Is
Judah, your brothers will praise you; your hand will be on the neck of your enemies; your father’s sons will bow down to you. You are a lion’s cub, Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness—who dares to rouse him? The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he to whom it belongs shall come and the obedience of the nations shall be his. Genesis 49:8-10
A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.
Because Of Where He Is
Worship of Christ by 4 Living Creatures and the Elders
The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
The Majestic Worship of Christ by the Angels
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Worship of All:
there is the majestic worship by the whole universe. After each group of created beings has sung their chorus of praise, then all of creation—every being and creature who has ever lived in both heaven and earth—shall break forth in one chorus of praise to both God and Christ.
For you were bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body.
1 Corinthians 6:20
