Adoration is to have esteem for, love for, and respect for. It is the basis for worship. In relationships you might hear someone say that she or he is adorable. That aligns with looks and personality, but not necessarily character, truthfulness and faithfulness. So when we offer adoration to God, it puts the conversation in the correct context. God id God and we are not. If the first things out of our conversation with God is proclaiming all of the thing we adore about him that encompasses the many powerful and amazing aspects of God’s character.
When we learn to pray using the acronym ACTS. which is adoration- confession- Thanksgiving and Supplication. The biggest priority is one of alignment and being in awe and wonder at the works of his hand. When we worship and state the God that is and present in our lives. That stands at the door and knocks waiting to be invited in.
Jesus is God with us. After Jesus ascended he gave us the Holy Spirit. Praise our God and then confess our short comings and sinful nature for God is quick to forgive. Then after we bring our sins to the cross of Jesus, give thanks because the good news is that he took all of the sins upon himself and has paid the price., the work is done. That means we do not nee d to earn anything. We only need to Believe Jesus and Follow hims. After adoration, confession and Thanksgiving, then you can lift your requests to the lord. The Lord hears those that are faithful to adoring Him, confessing to him ,and giving thanks for him.
So can we be a good christian without adoring God? I am not sure we can to be honest with you. By adoring the power, forgiveness and faithfulness of Christ, we learn more of him so that our personal relationship with him is based on the truth that is in His word. That knowledge gives us a proper fear and awe of our Lord. Once we understand that relationship, and abide in His will, then we can become a proper vessel for sharing His grace and love.
At the time of Noah, he was asked to build an ARK for a Flood that he knew was coming as a form of judgment on sinful man. I know work is hard to come by after cataclysmic events like the flood.
I think the emotional baggage of the flood on sinful man, makes us all a bit paranoid when our house shows any sign of a leak, much less a flood.
