Why does God want us to worship him? [The Art of Following Jesus, pt 8] #worship #celebration

God created us to enjoy life. Yet so many of us just seem stuck in boredom, routine, or worse. But there is a way to enjoy the life we’ve been given even when things are difficult or overwhelming. It’s discovered when we practice the Art of Following Jesus.

Main Points:
[00:37] God wants us to enjoy our lives.
[02:49] We find joy in every day by purposely practicing worship and celebration everyday.
[04:08] Dallas Willard: Worship is to see God as worthy, to ascribe great worth to him.
[06:20] Worship isn’t for God… it’s for us.
[07:45] When we worship we are reminding ourselves of how great, powerful, and loving our Heavenly Father really is.
[08:45] Worship allows us to put our problems in their proper perspective.
[10:36] Celebration is an outpouring of the faith that is developed in our worship.
[13:12] If following Jesus doesn’t lead you to enjoy your life, you’re doing it wrong.
[15:35] A person full of worship and celebration brings joy everywhere they go.
[19:51] True joy comes from seeing how great God is and enjoying how good he has been to us.

Invitation [17:45]
