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?

 

Assurance

Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life. (1 John 5:12-13)


Convinced Of This

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.

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.

Christ Arose
Robert Lowry

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)

In The Lord Alone
| Walt Harrah
Everything we need is found in the Lord. He is the fountain of all true and lasting satisfaction.

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.

Jesus Answers Prayer
Fanny Crosby
The throne of grace is an untapped and endless resource of all the beliver will ever need. We are invited to come with confidence, and ask boldly in prayer.

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.

You Know It's True
| Walt Harrah
Jesus came, full of grace and truth. Satan works overtime to get us to believe his lies. The Spirit works on our conscience, telling us right and wrong.

Forever With The Lord
Montgomery
Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling. 2 Corinthians 5:2

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!
