What is the value of worshiping God? What does it mean to glorify and worship the Lord? One thing is certain it does not mean to get mystical or mythical about it. Throughout centuries many Christians have misunderstood the true meaning and value of worshiping God as they have taken out of context what the Bible clearly teaches. It is time that we reevaluate this perspective.
Between 1560 and 1599, The Geneva Bible was providentially unleashed upon a dark, discouraged, downtrodden English speaking world. Just when it looked as if the Machiavellian, Divine Right kings, such as the Tudors of England, were about to drive Christendom back to the days of Caesar worship, a Bible appeared that set the stage for a Christian Reformation of life and culture the likes of which the world had never seen. By the time of the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588, just 28 years after the first printing of the Geneva Bible, it was already being said of the English that they were becoming a “people of the Book.” The results of a people reading and obeying the Word of God were the explosion of faith, character, the first missionary movement in history, literature, economic blessing, and political and religious freedom.
