You will find that many of the things that you should be doing personally in your relationship with God, you should also be doing as a couple. Worship is one of those things. Why? Because the heart of worship is placing God at the very center of things and that is something which you need to do both personally and as a couple.
The dictionary defines worship in the verb form as “extravagant respect or admiration for or devotion to an object of esteem”. God created us with the need to worship. Preferably Him, but given that we have free will, we often choose to worship other things or other people. The Bible has numerous examples of people choosing to worship the wrong things. In fact, He considers it so important, that one of the Ten Commandments addresses it:
“You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.” Exodus 20:3-6.
So God considers worship important. And since our worship involves admiration or devotion, we not only are in obedience to God when we do it, but we strengthen our feelings for Him when we do. You will find that when you are worshiping God with a group of believers your feelings of adoration and love for God can become heightened. If you have not worshiped as a couple then I’d like you to imagine what happens to those same feelings of adoration when you worship with the person that God gave you great love for – your spouse. It stands to reason that if your feelings are heightened when you are with people that you do not have personal feelings for, then the feelings invoked worshiping with someone you love should be heightened even more so. And I can tell you from personal experience that it is true. It is hard to explain those feelings that rise up inside me when I hear my husband pouring out his adoration for our God. You really have to experience it yourself to know the value.
If you are not worshiping God with your spouse, then what are you waiting for? It will strengthen your relationship with each other and with God.
