The purpose of worship is a worthwhile question for the believer to ask from time to time. It’s doubtful that a Christian doesn’t understand the need to worship, but remembering the purpose of worship can get lost. There is a sense in which a Christian is always worshiping God in the daily living out of their life, but the Bible clearly speaks to a formal setting for worship as well.

how Scripture answers "What is the purpose of worship?"

The purpose of worship is to come together2,3 to honor and glorify God1. It’s done according to His command1,4, and while we see a certain authorized frequency and other authorized activities, another explicit purpose of worship is to remember His Son while reflecting on our own faithfulness to Him2. This “coming together” for the Lord’s Supper also highlights the relational and physical aspect of the purpose of worship when we encourage and strengthen each other3 in our Christian walk.
