“Worship changes the worshiper into the image of the One worshiped.”
- Jack Hayford
Humankind was created and designed in such a way that we would find our greatest joy, purpose, and fulfillment in the worship of the God who created us - and who is Lord of all. In light of our design, men and women of all generations end up worshiping someone or something. The strategy of the god of this world, Satan, is to blind people to the One True God and deceive them into worshiping that which is false and illusory (2 Corinthians 4:4).

“It’s in the process of being worshiped that God communicates His presence to men.” C.S. Lewis
- Matthew 2:2 saying, "Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship <4352> Him."
- Luke 4:8 And Jesus answered and said to him, "Get behind Me, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship <4352> the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.’"
- Hebrews 1:6 But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: "Let <4352> all the angels of God worship <4352> Him."
- The book of Revelation uses “worship” 27 times differentiating between the worship of the One True God on His throne in heaven and those who will be deceived into worshiping the antichrist beast (Rev 13:4, 12, 14:9, 11, 16:2, 19:20, 20:4).
