II. Through Whom Do We Worship? A very important aspect of worship is prayer.

Many people in the Bible are called “blessed”, but we do not worship them!
Abraham (Genesis 14:19 ) “Blessed be Abram of God Most High”
The servant of Abraham (Genesis 24:31) “O blessed of the Lord”
Isaac (Genesis 26:29) “the blessed of the Lord”
The twelve sons of Jacob (Genesis 49)
Rebekah (Genesis 24:60) “ May you become the mother of thousands of ten thousands; and may your descendants possess the gates of those who hate them.”
Ruth, grandmother of David (Ruth 3:10 ) Boaz: “Blessed are you of the Lord!”
Leah (Genesis 30:13) “The daughters will call me blessed”
Jael (Judges 5:24 ) “ Most blessed among women is Jael”
Mary (Luke 1:48 ) “A ll generations will call me blessed”
We worship Jesus John 20:24 -29 “My Lord, and my God!”
If you believe that Jesus is the Lord, you must subject yourself to Him:
Philippians 2:8-11; Romans 10:9; Acts 2:38
