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?

 

Providence

 “Who has cleft a channel for the torrents of rain and a way for the thunderbolt, to bring rain on a land where no man is, on the desert in which there is no man, to satisfy the waste and desolate land, and to make the ground sprout with grass? (Job 38:25-27)


Now and Forever

God's Care

Praise the Living God
| Walt Harrah
There is nothing in all God's creation that is excused from praising the Lord God

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!

His Love Endures
| Walt Harrah
God has always been trustworthy, and history is full of His acts of power, and His display of deliverance. And each time He intervenes, praise is the appropriate response.

Be Still My Soul
Katharina von Schlegel
Regardless what the circumstances would suggest, God is in control. And with that truth firmly fixed in our minds we can rest, trusting that he will work out everything according to his plan, which is always for the best.

God Is With Us
Thomas Gill
Our all-powerful God, who does whatever pleases him, is pleased to fight for us. He is Emmanuel, God with us.

Shout For Joy To The Lord
Neander
Why do we worship the Lord? This song not only calls us to do that, it gives us a number of reasons to awaken our hearts to praise. The new refrain from Psalm 100 asks all the earth to join in the song.

Everything I Need
| Walt Harrah
There's lots of desires we have that seem to be necessary. But only God can be an all-sufficient substitute, satisfying completely all the time, in every situation.

The Awesome God Who Can
Walt Harrah
Our minds are finite. And our imaginations have a governor on them. We see through a glass dimly. But God has no such limitations. The One who created the heavens and the earth is able to do far more than we could ask or even think.

Unchanging God
Isaac Watts
Everything around us may change, but the God we worship is immutable. It is not possible for him to improve, age, or morph. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. God will always be faithful. He cannot be anything else.

Anything
| Walt Harrah
God is alive and well and full of power, and ready to act in ways that further his plans and purposes. Nothing stops him, or tops him. He is supreme in power and authority.

I Look To The Shepherd
Walt Harrah
We are sheep, but we have a shepherd - Jesus, that Great Shepherd Of The Sheep. Dependency on Him makes total sense, for He is all-powerful, constantly attentive, and able to care for us in this life, and throughout eternity.
