The answer to this question largely hinges on Jesus' identity. If Jesus is regarded as deity in the same sense as His Father, then we should worship Jesus. If the New Testament documents identify J...

God, the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob (Israel), is the true and only God of the Universe. Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit and the Father are one with God. Jesus, whom is God Incarnate is worthy of our praise and worship, just as the Father and Holy Spirit are. When we worship God, we are worshiping the three persons of God. Jesus Chrust came to Earth to show us the nature and divinity of God, in which he is part of. If we know the Son, we know the Father and His Holy Spirit. Jesus (the anticipated Massiah of the Old Testament showed all the Old Testament prophesis and attributes of what the Massiah would have) is God whom can forgive Sins. Jesus is the only Way, the only Truth and the only Life to Eternal Life. Jesus is the Resurrection as He proved it by raising people from the dead. 

Jesus Christ came to die for our sins to undo what happened in the Garden of Edan, when man sinned and brought death to all creation. Jesus died and arose the third day and is the first with the resurrected body that all this that believeth in Him will have when they are resurrected to life with Him in the Raptue and in the last days if the end of the world as we know it.

There is no question that Jesus Christ is God and He should be worship and all praise allotted to Him. Jesus created all things seen and unseen and through Him the Holy, Holy, Holy God can tolerate sinful humans, because when He sees them, He sees the blood of Jesus on them that cleansed their sins forever and they are welcome to the present of God whom cannot be with sin or it's imperfections. Jesus Christ (whom name is above all names) is worthy to be worshiped forever and ever, Amen.

Absolutly we should not, but to love him with all our soul and with all our mind (Deuteronomy 6: 4-9; Mathew 22: 34-40).

The term of " worship" is used in pagan and Satan worshipers, it is such a ritual made by the worshipers of idols and Satan for the purpose of fullfilment of the needs of the worshipers (Luke 4: 7).

Being a believers and followers of Jesus, we are all a friends of his (John 15: 9-17) and children of God (John 1: 12-13).

"Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?" (Luke 7:19)

This is one of the most eye-opening questions ever to be asked! Asked by John the Baptist from a dungeon, a man who had introduced Jesus to the world in Palestine, to whom this question is tendered, the question is 'did I get you confused with the Messiah whom I was sent to present to the world?' 

John's testimony is the greatest of all time. 

John bore witness: "I saw the Spirit descend from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him. I myself did not know him, but he who sent me to baptize with water said to me, 'He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain, this is he who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.' And I have seen and have borne witness that this is the Son of God." (John 1:32-34)

The question asked here over two thousand years later shouldn't alarm anyone. John the Baptist got it straight from God that he'd recognize the Messiah when their paths crossed. But something happened that made him wonder if he had been mistaken. What happened? He got in trouble with Herod Antipas, king of Israel, was thrown into a dungeon and was awaiting his beheading. Jesus had not come to save him.

Is that all it takes to question Jesus' identity? Considering John's unparalleled declaration, I say 'Yeah, trouble can cloud your view of everything you thought you knew about Jesus.' 

John had earlier said, 'This is he,' and 'I have seen,' 'I am a witness that this is the Son of God.' 

What are we expecting from Jesus in 'the here and now' that he isn't providing, that might cause us to know who he is today and not know tomorrow? Or is it that we've never been too sure about him? I think that is what's going on here; someone wants to know whether Jesus is the Son of God, and if he is, if it's appropriate to pray to the Son of God. 

An emissary is an agent, a representative sent on an errand or a mission. God had / has plenty of ambassadors: prophets, disciples, preachers, apostles, and a heavenly host of angels like those described in Luke 2:13. They / We are very important in the grand scheme, but are mere messengers. Is Jesus a mere messenger, or can he make decisions for the Kingdom of God? 

(I'm glad you asked!)

And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me" (Matthew 28:18). 

This he said after he had been resurrected to life. There's nothing ambiguous about this declaration. HE'S THE MAN! as we say colloquially. He isn't head of a department or chairman of an auxiliary. He doesn't have to schedule an appointment with God the Father to make sure they're on the same page about what to do on your behalf. Besides the fact that he has "all authority" (power), according to him, he and the Father are one (John 10:30). 
He wasn't being boastful, he was walking in the temple (his house) in the colonnade of Solomon and a 'gathering of Jews' surrounded him and asked him, "How long will you keep us in suspense? If you're the Christ, tell us plainly" (John 10:24). 

It doesn't get much plainer than 'I and my Father are one.' We ain't confused about what he said; the confusion is, 'do we believe him?'

I can think of 4 clear verses that tell us that Jesus is to be worshipped. He made us. He loves us. He redeemed us.

Hebrews 1:6:
And when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says, “And let all the angels of God worship Him,” so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth.

Philippians 2:10:
"So that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth."

Matthew 14:33:
And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, “You are certainly God’s Son!”

Matthew 2:2:
“Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.”

Phil Tarver wrote a nice worship song:

"I worship You Jesus
I worship You Jesus
I worship You Jesus 
I worship You Jesus
Because You are my everything"

Also, Norman Warren wrote a another good Christian song, "Jesus, I Worship You”:

"Jesus, I worship you,
Jesus, I worship you,
Son of God:
You came from heaven above
to bring the Father's love:
Jesus, I worship you,
Son of God!"
