Worship is an instinct we are born with and have capacity to express. It is not always the Father God that people worship, but we all worship. Nature is a large part of most worship, and should be, because it displays our original and continuing environment of the Garden. Other objects have been deified in other cultures, but it is the Beauty of Jesus that makes worship understandable at a different level.
God has never asked or expected people “to meet” for worship so they “could worship God,” but rather any gathering, with or without others, is a time and place for God “to meet us.” The original idea was a place “where God was” and people gathered so God could meet them, but this turned into systematic religion without much meaning and with man believing he was gathering to worship God, but God could no longer meet with man.
Our new level of worship is to grasp the coming of Jesus into our lives and then realize that God now lives inside of us and meets us internally and constantly as an abiding Presence. We are “the temple of God” and God meets us whether we worship alone or with others.
“For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.” Jesus
