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?

 

Obedience

And he said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.” (Mark 14:36)


A Life of Love
| Walt Harrah
Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. (Ephesians 5:1)

Not What I Will
Walt Harrah
Just as Jesus said as he prayed to his Father, "Not my will but yours be done," so as followers of Christ we must submit and surrender to the will of God for us in everything.

I'll Be That Man
Walt Harrah
God is looking for men and women who will represent him fearlessly, who are willing to take the kingdom of God into places where the kingdom of this world has wrecked havoc. This song helps the worshipper to say "here I am."

Love Never Fails
| Walt Harrah
1 Corinthians 13, the love chapter, in song form

A Mighty Fortress
Martin Luther
In times of trouble, we have a place to hide. And that place is in God himself. he is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help. (Psalm 46:1)

I Surrender All
Walt Harrah
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God - this is your spiritual act of worship. Romans 12:1

Make My Life A Miracle
| Walt Harrah
Not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit. Zechariah 4:6

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

Make My Heart Your Home
| Walt Harrah
We are the temple of the Holy Spirit. The Living God makes his abode with us, in our very hearts.

Prayer For The Future
| Walt Harrah
God's sovereignty. We don't know what the future holds, but we know who holds the future.

Love My World
Walt Harrah
We are God's salt and light in the world he has placed us, and his kingdom work is accomplished through us.

The Finish Line
| Walt Harrah
The Christian life is a race. We are to run it, to finish, and to run in such a way as to win a prize. Such an attitude glorifies God.

Worth Any Cost
| Walt Harrah
Discipleship is the word used to describe a follower of Jesus. And there is a cost. But the reward far outweighs any personal sacrifice.

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.

Take Me As I Am
| Walt Harrah
Peter had just denied Christ, and days later was being called by Jesus to "feed His sheep." God doesn't look for perfect vessels, just consecrated ones.

Come Thou Fount
Robert Robinson
Expressing a God-focused mindset, and the gratitude that flows out of a fervent soul in worship.

The Way Of Love
Walt Harrah
What is the way of love? Read 1 Corinthians 13. Paul spells it out clearly, but living that way is another matter. Nevertheless, we aim for the standard, and trust the Spirit to do His work in His way and in His time.

The Upward Call
Walt Harrah
When we are in Christ, we become new creations. Our old way of seeing things passes away, and we depelop an entirely new mindset. Eternity becomes everything to us. And we live for a crown that will not fade, kept in heaven for us.

Go Into The World
| Walt Harrah
God loves the world so much, He gave His Son to die, so that all mankind might be reconciled to God. Now it is up to us to tell that message. How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news. Romans 10:15

When All Is Said And Done
Walt Harrah
Consecration is defined as "the solemn dedication to a special purpose or service, usually religious." Expressing devotion as promise and desire pleases the heart of God. He loves intent.

The Light Of The Lord
| Walt Harrah
There is a gate that is wide and broad, and very popular. The way of the Lord, however, is narrow. Few find it, but it leads to life.
