“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen. I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.”Romans 11:33-12:1

WHY DO WE WORSHIP GOD
Worship is the act of glorifying God and enjoying him. To Him is due from angels and men, and every other creature, whatsoever worship, service, or obedience He is pleased to require of them (Rev 5:12-14). We worship the one true God as both creator and savior (Deut 6:4; 1 Thes 1:9). All creation is called to worship the Triune God (Ps 100) Although all creation is called to worship God at all times, Christians believe that the gathering together for public worship.
The end of public worship is the glory of God. His people should engage in all its several parts with an eye single to His glory. Public worship has as its aim the building of Christ’s Church by the perfecting of the saints and the addition to its membership of such as are being saved — all to the glory of God. Through public worship on the Lord’s day, Christians should learn to serve God all the days of the week in their every activity, remembering, whether they eat or drink, or whatever they do, to do all to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31).Book of Church Order 47-3
Throughout all of creation, God has set apart one day in seven to be Holy, (Ex 20:8) following Jesus’ resurrection the church has gathered to worship on the Lord’s Day, Sunday, to worship the Triune God. God calls his people to worship him through the reading, hearing, and preaching of His Word, the singing of Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual songs, (Eph 5:19; Col 3:16) administration of the sacraments and offering up of prayers. All of this pointing towards the glory of the Triune God and enjoying his great goodness.
