💡The word “worship” is two words, worth-ship. It simply means the outward showing of respect and esteem to a higher authority. The key elements necessary are fear and humility, and ultimately ❤️LOVE. 😬Fear is not used in the sense of terror, but rather respect for another’s awesome power and authority. The Hebrew concept basically has always been termed obeisance, or the status of a servant who obeys his master. The word “obey” comes from the Hebrew word OBED, or servant; the prophet “Obadiah” means servant of 🙌Yah (the father). The generosity and Fatherhood of 🙌YAHUAH (the father) demands His creatures to return praise and recognition. 💡He has feelings; wrath, humor, compassion, and desires a relationship with each of us. How would you feel if your pet ignored you😢, and even bit your hand whenever you came into its space? But He considers us His children! ✊Yahusha (jesus) even calls us “brothers” (and sisters). 📖The Writings of the TaNaKh and Brit Chadasah show His love for us by providing the rules for living in peace, and it is the perfect “book” of law. It is a 💡“light” for us to “walk” in, and without it we stumble in “darkness”. He has literally created us to be a part of His family. 🙌Worship is something we perform, and is seen as obedience. In the hands of men, this “worship” has become perverted, and we serve another entity, deceived by diversion tactics. Worship is not something we do only one day each week, but everyday; by adopting the pattern of living we see in the Torah (Law/Instructions). These are the living waters, and the “food” which Yahusha (jesus) desired Cephas (Kepha, Shimon Peter) to “feed” His sheep. Today, the sheep are being “fleeced”, and are feeding the predators, or wolves, who parasitically plunder them and lead them away from obeying YAHUAH (the father). The parable about the “hirelings” who work in the vineyard while the Owner is away shows us that they want the “business” to be their own (Mt. 21:33-45). This whole planet is the vineyard. YAHUAH “dwells” in His Temple, His people, who make up the “living stones”.
Woke up with the sun by the sea this morning & found rest in Psalm 46:10. "Be STILL and know that I am God." Have a great weekend full of rest, friends!
Why does God save us "for His name's sake"? Because all things were created through Him and for Him (Colossians 1:16). What does this say? It says that the purpose of all existence is the glory of God! What is your purpose? It is to know Him, for that is the reason that you were created! However, sin separated your from His goodness and from the knowledge of Him; nevertheless, He sent His Son do bleed and die for your transgression so that you could be brought back (reconciled)! God created you to know Him, then when something stood between you and Him, He paid the highest price to get you back. Christian, you are loved beyond what you could ever know or experience! Why? Because God wants to love you and He delights in doing so! Hold back no longer, but run to the One who justifies (makes right) the ungodly and know Him! How do you know He wants to know you? Because Christ bled!

Romans 8:28 NIV And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
1 John 2:3-5 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we know Him.
By @user Your pastors and elders should have been the ones exposing the deception but they are the main ones spreading it.
By @user And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. (Daniel 7:25 KJV) The Roman emperor Constantine, a former sun-worshiper, professed conversion to Christianity, though his subsequent actions suggest the “conversion” was more of a political move than a genuine heart change. Constantine named himself Bishop of the Catholic Church and enacted the first civil law regarding Sunday observance in A.D. 321. On the venerable day of the sun let the magistrate and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country however, persons engaged in agricultural work may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits; because it often happens that another day is not so suitable for grain growing or for vine planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost. —Schaff’s History of the Christian Church, vol. III, chap. 75. Note that Constantine’s law did not even mention Sabbath but referred to the mandated rest day as a “the venerable day of the sun.” And how kind he was to allow people to observe it as it was convenient. Contrast this with God’s command to observe the Sabbath “even during the plowing season and harvest” (Exodus 34:21)! Perhaps the church leaders noticed this laxity as well, for just four years later, in A.D. 325, Pope Sylvester officially named Sunday “the Lord’s Day,” and in A.D. 338, Eusebius, the court bishop of Constantine, wrote, “All things whatsoever that it was the duty to do on the Sabbath (the seventh day of the week) we (Constantine, Eusebius, and other bishops) have transferred to the Lord’s Day (the first day of the week) as more appropriately belonging to it.” Instead of the humble lives of persecution and self-sacrifice led by the apostles, church leaders now exalted themselves to the place of God. “This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world” (1 John 4:3).
You just have to learn how to build a personal relationship with God. That way you will be praying talking and thanking God everyday instead of just when you NEED HIM.
