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?

 

Salvation

Even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus... (Ephesians 2:5-6)


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.

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.

Living Water
| Walt Harrah
Jesus offers a water for spiritually thirsty people, and once they drink of it, they never thirst again, for it becomes an everlasting spring that flows out of them.

Christ The Lord Is Risen Today
Charles Wesley
Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? (1 Corinthians 15:54-55)

One And Only Savior
| Walt Harrah
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12

The Hope We Have
Walt Harrah
Christian hope is the spiritual gasoline that fuels our faith, and keeps us running with perseverance. A Christian without hope is an oxymoron, like a car with no engine.

Solitary Throne
Walt Harrah
There is one king, and he reigns alone. He is supreme ruler, and His name is Jesus.

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?

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.

We Remember You
| Walt Harrah
The sacrifice of our Lord, highlighted and emphasized in the celebration of communion, elicits praise to our praiseworthy God.

Everything's New
Walt Harrah
Baptism, the visible sign of our being buried with Christ, only to rise from the dead to newness of life.

To God Be The Glory
Fanny Crosby
The Good News of the Gospel can't be kept hidden. It must be told, and retold in a thousand ways, with stories of God's faithful love as shown in history, and in our very lives.

Emmanuel's Praise
John Blakewell
:

Most Holy Gracious God
Walt Harrah
God is holy. His perfect justice demands that he punish all disobedience, all rebellion. But on the cross, Jesus took the blows meant for us, and those who trust in Christ escape the punishment that we deserve. Hallelujah!

Here Is Your God
| Walt Harrah
We are not on our own. We are not left to our own selves. There is a God. He is mighty and powerful, and he delivers and saves. And when we call, he answers.

Prepare The Way
| Walt Harrah
When the Lord comes into a situation, darkness flees and order is restored. That is both a present hope and the ultimate reality. Meanwhile, get ready.

Life Everlasting
| Walt Harrah
The greatest invitation possible is offered freely to all who will come. Eternal God offers eternal life.

Wrath and Mercy
We like thinking of God as merciful. We are very uncomfortable thinking of him being wrathful, of calling us to account for sin and rebellion. But as it turns out, God's justice is a combination of both mercy and wrath.

God has big plans for planet earth. He is not some local deity, with limited influence. Very soon, all the earth will be filled with the knowledge of God as the waters cover the sea. That's a promise, and God always keeps His word.
