What is the Purpose of Worship?
Worship is a lifestyle response to God, not just something done through music at church. Worship includes daily loving God according to His teachings found in Scripture as well as with heart and emotions focused on Him.
The purpose of worship is not to feel better personally, though this is often the result. Worship may include repentance of sins or other actions contrary to one's personal desires in an effort to give honor and glory to the Lord.
Christian worship should result in God-honoring actions. Right after James wrote about the importance of not showing favoritism during worship gatherings, he noted,
"What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, 'Go in peace, be warmed and filled,' without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead" (James 2:14-17).
The purpose of worship is to not only have the desire to act, but to demonstrate actions that reflect a heart changed by God.
