Reading the Word

Psalm 95:5–7 (ESV)

5 The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. 6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! 7 For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.

Understanding and Applying the Word

These verses call for us to “worship and bow down”. Why? Because the same God who made the sea and formed the dry land is the God who made us. He is our God! We belong to him as sheep belong to a shepherd.

We need to have a proper understanding of who God is and who we are. Worship gives us a proper perspective. When we come before God in worship, we are forced to humble ourselves knowing that we are under the authority of One who is greater than us. Worship forces us to realize our need for God’s care and provision. And worship moves us to thanksgiving for God’s love and grace in our lives. Come, let us worship and bow down before our God!
