WHY DOES GOD DESERVE OUR WORSHIP? Because He is God. Because He is our Creator. Because He has prepared a place for us in His presence. Because without Him we would spend eternity separated from Him in Hell.
WE WORSHIP GOD BECAUSE HE IS GOD, He loves us, and He gave His very life on the cross for us so we will not spend eternity in Hell separated from Him.
WE WORSHIP GOD BECAUSE HE HAS GIVEN US A SAFE HAVEN TO LIVE. He is our protector from the greatest enemy we have outside of ourselves, Satan!
John 10:8–10 “All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.

WE WORSHIP GOD BECAUSE HE LOVES US. John 3:16.
