Does God call us to worship Him because He needs our worship This is the question that runs through many peoples minds when going to worship at church Does God command us to worship Him because His ego needs a boost No Worship was created not for His benefit but for our benefit The particular church that I visited was the Bethany Chapel which is an Evangelical church located on 3333 Richardson Way SW We were greeted at the entrance and were directed to see Mark Simpson who is a Youth Junior High Pastor at Bethany Chapel When asking him a few questions about worshipping and why people come everyday to worship at the Bethany Chapel he stated that worship involves three things which is listening applying and the challenge When it comes to worship listening to the Pastor relate a passage from the bible to current events that are happening in the world today its in applying that passage when you leave the church to the daily things we do in life The challenge comes in understanding the passage and trying to indulge it into our life whether it improves relationships or just makes us closer or in tune with God After observing the worship celebration on Sunday November 10 2002 it showed me how true worship must be more than simply an intellectual or ceremonial exercise Much of what passes for worship is little more that the practice of ritual obligations Many worshippers believe that there are certain acts that need to be satisfied in order to appease God With this approach to worship the main concern becomes Did we do it right rather than Were our hearts in tune to what was being said and done The type of attendees at Bethany Chapel range from the very young to the very old They dress formally and occasionally some of the younger adults can be spotted having jewellery such as a cross-worn around
