Why worship?

Re: Verse reading–Psalm 95 (day one)
“Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.”  (vs 1)  It is a “call to worship”.  A song that gathers/invites people for the purpose of praise.  Everyone has to be encouraged at times.  Worship is a choice not a feeling.  So the Psalm answers the obvious questions.  Why should we sing?  Why should we sing with joy?  Why should we sing to the Lord?  1) Because He created us.  He is “our maker” (vs 6).  2) Because He cares.  Like a shepherd protecting his sheep, God deserves our praise for His provision (vs 7).  3) Because He calls.  It is a great mistake to resist God.  The song writer remembers the disaster that came when Israel “hardened their hearts”(vs 7b-11).  It will be the same for us.  Why should we worship?  Because He created us, He cares for us, and He calls us to Himself and to His holiness.
