Our “imitation worship”

When we worship, when we give honor and glory to God, we are imitating what has been going on between the Father and the Son in the unity of the Holy Spirit from before all creation.
2 Peter 1:16-18
We did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For when HE RECEIVED HONOR AND GLORY FROM GOD THE FATHER and the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased,” we heard this voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on the holy mountain.

John 13:31-32
Jesus said, “NOW IS THE SON OF MAN GLORIFIED, and IN HIM GOD IS GLORIFIED; if God is glorified in him, GOD WILL ALSO GLORIFY HIM in himself, and glorify him at once.”

John 17:1-5
Jesus lifted up his eyes to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come; GLORIFY YOUR SON THAT THE SON MAY GLORIFY YOU, since you have given him power over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work which you gave me to do; and now, FATHER, GLORIFY ME IN YOUR OWN PRESENCE WITH THE GLORY WHICH I HAD WITH YOU BEFORE THE WORLD WAS MADE.”
