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?

 

Perseverence

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. (Psalm 46:1-3)


His Love Endures

God's sovereignty. We don't know what the future holds, but we know who holds the future.

I Wait In Hope

Waiting on God glorifies Him. But waiting without the "wringing of hands," waiting in hope, glorifies Him even more.

God Is With Us

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

God Has Never Failed Us Yet

God is on our side, and watches over us. He never falls asleep, and at just the right time, he rescues and delivers.

The Finish Line

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.

God Will Deliver Me
| Walt Harrah
You might say that God is in the delivery business. Call on me in the day of trouble; I WILL DELIVER YOU, and you will honor me. Psalm 50:15

We Trust In The Lord
| Walt Harrah
The world around us tempts us with a myriad of choices to place our trust in. The only sure place for our trust is in the Lord Himself.

I Will Not Fear
Walt Harrah
With God on our side, we have an advantage that the world knows nothing of, and His presence means that we can trust instead of fretting. Fear is a warning light that we are not trusting.

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.
