Unnecessary Worship

In Psalm 50, Asaph prepares us for worship by delivering a stirring rebuke to our pride. We tend to reverse in our minds what worship does – we think that we are serving God, when it is actually God who serves us. God does not need our praise. He doesn’t call on us when He needs something; we need to call on Him for everything! From God’s perspective, our worship is unnecessary. God would do just fine without it. But we wouldn’t, and so the Lord calls on us to come and worship in a posture of deep humility. Only when we come in a spirit of complete dependency will we rightly glorify God and see His salvation.
