Worship or church service is a ceremony where we humbly offer prayers, praises, glory, and thanks to God for leading us to the Kingdom of Heaven with His holy love by granting us forgiveness of sins and eternal life.
Which days should we worship God? The days we should worship God are:
First and foremost, we must worship God on the Sabbath day.
The Sabbath is the day to celebrate God’s power of creation. By observing the Sabbath day, we can reaffirm that God created the heavens and the earth, and acknowledge His amazing power. When we worship God reverently we can receive abundant blessings on the Sabbath day.
“Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.”Genesis 2:1-3
Following the Bible, we hold Church services on Saturday the Sabbath day. Additionally, we hold the Third-day service, which purifies us, on Tuesday evenings (Nu 19:1–22).
Second, we must keep the annual feasts of God.
In the times of the Old Testament, the Israelites worshiped God by sacrificing lambs and goats for the forgiveness of their sins. The regulation of sacrificing animals was a prophecy about Jesus, who would sacrifice Himself, to forgive our sins. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, but while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Ro 5:6–11). God’s unfailing grace is contained in the feasts of God. By keeping the feasts, we humble ourselves in reverence to God and show gratitude for the love and sacrifice of Christ, who shed His blood on the cross.
Additionally, each feast of God inherently contains its own prophetic meaning and reveals God’s providence through its fulfillment. The annual feasts are as follows: The Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Day of Resurrection (the Day of Firstfruits), the Pentecost (the Feast of Weeks), the Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and the Feast of Tabernacles (Lev 23:1–38).
God seeks those who worship Him in spirit and truth (Jn.4:23), and pours out blessings upon them. Therefore, we must worship God sincerely with all our heart, mind and soul. Let us also take that time to give thanks for the love and grace of God, who changed our destiny from the eternal punishment of death to the Kingdom of Heaven.
