Worship Him Because Of Who He Is

Posted: December 3, 2010 in Uncategorized

I was watching a video the other day on Youtube, in which ex Underoath’s drummer and The Almosts lead singer and guitar player, Aaron Gillespie, was talking about an experience where he and his band had the opportunity to go to Africa. In it, he says God spoke to him and told him, those people in that Ugandan Church, were worshiping Him (God) for who He is.

When Aaron said that, I could just feel something inside me stirring, and I had a moment of realization. In countries that are blessed to have such wealth that we do, even though most of us think we don’t,  I think a lot of us worship our creator for the wrong reasons. We worship Him for what He has done in our lives and what He is doing. Which, don’t get me wrong, isn’t bad; for we are all called to worship Jesus. But I don’t think I have, in a while at least, just gone before Him and worshiped Him for who he is.

Think about it, do you worship God for providing you with the luxuries you have? or when you worship your creator, your rock, your saviour, are you worshiping just because He is who He is.


Here is the video in which Aaron Gillespie talks about this:


I also found this really powerful video, where Dr. S.M Lockridge talks about who Jesus is. It’s so powerful, if you ever wondered who He is, what He’s all about, I highly recommend this video. He asks the simple question at the end “Do you know Him?” Think about that, after you watch this:
