If the greatest commandment is to love God with our whole being, then to come to him in worship is a duty central to living out that love. Worship is not primarily a social occasion as we gather with others to worship, though we are always grateful for the other believers with whom we gather. Worship is not primarily a time for our enjoyment, though being in worship is enjoyable. But worship is primarily an expression of the worth of God. It is a God-centered thing. It is primarily for God and about God; it is not primarily for ourselves and for our needs. Whatever social and psychological benefits it has are secondary. Worship primarily is for God.
