The title of my message is THE WAY TO WORSHIP. I want you to take your bibles and turn to Exodus chapter twenty if you will please, Exodus chapter twenty. We're going to read verses one through six. And God spake all these words saying, I am the Lord thy God which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other Gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto me any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above or that is in the earth beneath or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them nor serve them for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquities of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandment. Man by nature, man by instinct, many by creation needs to worship. No one is ever born atheist. He has to be taught to be an atheist. A man can only become an atheist by committing spiritual and moral suicide with his spiritual and moral facilities. A man has a desire to worship God as instinctively as he breathes. Now, we're reading the commandments. The first commandment tells us here who we ought to worship, we're to worship the Lord God and have no other gods. The second commandment tells us how we're to worship, the first commandment forbids false Gods, the second commandment forbids false worship.

So we can worship God, ha, that's why people get saved. The bottom line is not even the salvation of souls, the bottom line is the glory of God. The worship of God, knowing God, loving God, serving god, Worshiping God Now, in these verses we see here the importance of a proper conception of God. Now, the bible says in verse four, thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image. You cannot worship God until you have a proper conception of God. You must know God to worship God. The reason that a graven image is so wrong is this, it gives you a wrong concept of God. Now, a graven image is a physical, material thing but God is a spiritual person and so a material thing can never, ever adequately represent the spiritual God. Jesus said in John chapter four and verse twenty four that God is a spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth and so there is no object no matter how beautiful it may be that can represent God. One of my favorite verses in all of the bible is in Isaiah chapter forty and verse twenty five and it ask a question. God is speaking and God says to whom them will ye liken me or shall I be equal saith the holy one. That is what are you ever going to compare God w ...
