Why we Worship

PSALM 47

Clap your hands, all peoples!
  Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared,
  a great king over all the earth.
He subdued peoples under us,
  and nations under our feet.
He chose our heritage for us,
  the pride of Jacob whom he loves.

God has gone up with a shout,
  the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises!
  Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth;
  sing praises with a psalm!

Why Sing?

God reigns over the nations;
  God sits on his holy throne.
The princes of the peoples gather
  as the people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
  he is highly exalted!


Why Scripture?

 

Love of Jesus

And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. (Ephesians 5:2)


Faithful Love
| Walt Harrah
God's name reflects his character. He doesn't love in a vacuum, or in theory. He finds people to show love to. And his mercy results in our salvation, as he continues to lavish grace and favor on us - forever!

Convinced Of This
| Walt Harrah
The fact that God gave up His only Son to redeem us shows the lengths He will go to bring us safely home. We are held in His hands, and can rest in that truth.

O Sacred Head Now Wounded
Paul Gerhardt
The passion of Christ on the cross

He Was Wounded
Thomas Chisholm
The death of Christ

And Can It Be
Charles Wesley
The Wonder of Salvation

Great God Of Love
Wesley/Harrah
The magnitude of our salvation, that we were dead and God made us alive, should awaken the loudest praise we can muster. What love but God's could run so deep, and extend so low, and raise to such height?

Endless Praise
| Walt Harrah
The sacrifice of Jesus to bring us back to God is so magnificent, that for all of eternity, it will be the theme of our praise. There will never be a time when it is inappropriate or out of date to thank our Savior Jesus Christ.

Once For All
| Walt Harrah
The sacrificial work of Christ was a one-time-event on the cross. The wrath of God has been satisfied, and there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

Nothing But The Blood
Lowry/Doane
Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin. Hebrews 9:22

Abba Father, We Approach You
Horatio Bonar
Because of the cross of Christ, we have access to the very throne of God. We are welcome as sons of the King, with all rights and privileges.

I'm Reconciled
Walt Harrah
Because of the Fall, we were God's enemies. Now, through the death of Jesus, we are friends, we are welcomed into God's presence once again through the blood of Jesus. That is reconciliation of the highest sort, and worthy of celebrating.
