What is Worship and why we meet every Sunday?By Adrián Pablos

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

By Adrian Pablos [1].

Brothers, most of us come from an upbringing and Catholic customs, where the relationship with God is based on orders and personal sacrifice, but this really is more than distant compared to a real relationship with the Creator and living in Holiness . We were taught to change the Lord "tit for tat" ....

We focus our communication with God based on their answers before our demands and we are saddened when He does not answer anything, may be material, familial, economic, etc..
We often get depressed and feel frustrated because we see that our dreams are not fulfilled in the time and manner that we exact our vain human wisdom. Right now is when we begin to compare with others in the congregation and generally noticed as "God to them meets their demands". This generally translates into an anger that results in a kind of capricious and demanding prayer "Lord, give me, give me, give me ..." Because of the way we were taught to take the "religion" manners Sunday, we lose the focus of attention on the importance of paying worship to God each week and we can start doing this as a routine activity more into our busy lives. We forget that worship means showing unconditional love and so superstitious concur so that everything we get it right during the week.
Share the Word of God:
19 No yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart. Matthew 6, RV60.
The Lord tells us in these verses, comparing our lives with the houses of the time, which were built of mud and straw, He tells us not to set our hearts on the things we see, but to focus our attention on what really worth it as our salvation and forgiveness of sins carried out by the sacrifice of Christ on the cross of Calvary. Therefore the Bible says:
5 And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen of men: verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you. 7 And when you pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do, who think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. Matthew 6, RV 60.
These lines we focus primarily to a prayer of thanksgiving and glorification of the Father. Directly teaches that our God knows the needs of each and we do not repeat prayers of others with words of which almost do not know its meaning, but we pour out in worship to Him
Jesus calls us to trust our "Dad" and Creator:
31 Take no thought, therefore, saying, What shall we eat, or what shall we drink, or what to wear? 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added. Matthew 6, RV 60.
So dear brothers eagerly wait every Sunday knowing that we will meet in the house of our Abba (Daddy Dear), to raise songs of worship and praise Him with a heart surrendered us come knowing the price our Lord paid for us to have direct access to the Holy of Holies and give our hearts in his presence. Lift up holy hands in unity as the body of Christ and worship the Lord of creation which in his omniscience knows all things with great wisdom.
The Apostle Paul writes in his letter to the Romans the true sense of coming together as brothers in every service to "celebrate" what the Lord Jesus did for each of us, let's see what he says in chapter five and treasure these words in our heart.
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and perseverance, proven character, and proven character, hope: 5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured in our hearts by the Holy Spirit given to us. 6 For Christ, while we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will hardly die for a righteous man, someone might possibly dare to die for the good. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath. 10 For if when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. 11 And not only so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
To conclude this topic I want to be clear this cell summarizing the salient points, see.

We meet at every service to thank and praise the Lord for the following:

Ø salvation of our soul.
Ø Forgiveness of our sins.
Ø For the price Jesus paid for every one of us.
Ø By making us his children.
Ø Access to the holiest without intermediaries and be at your very presence.
Ø By His mercy towards us.
Ø Freedom to live in truth.
Ø Disclosure of scripture.
Ø Wisdom in abundance
Ø Peace supernatural.
Ø By translating through His Holy Spirit in us true repentance.
Ø As fruits of the Spirit manifested in our lives.

God bless you greatly, and brothers ... go forward knowing that our God is in control of all things, devote our lives to praise and worship Him taking the gospel truth that has set us free.
