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?

 

Forgiveness

And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. (Colossians 2:13-14)


Forgive Me Lord
| Walt Harrah
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

It Causes Me To Tremble
Walt Harrah
The powerful redemptive work of Christ on our behalf, dying in our place, should move us to tears, it should humble us, and cause gratitude to swell up in us as a result.

Who Is A God Like You
Walt Harrah
God loves to show mercy, and the removing of sin is primarily how he displays that love.

There Is Forgiveness
| Walt Harrah
God is holy, and sin separates us from him. But through the cross, we have forgiveness thorough the blood of Jesus.

And Can It Be
Charles Wesley
The Wonder of Salvation

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.

Nothing But The Blood
Lowry/Doane
Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin. Hebrews 9:22

Be Glorified
Walt Harrah
When God gets the glory that is due Him, all is well with the world. The prayer Jesus taught His disciples helps us pray to that end.

Abba Father, We Approach You
Horatio Bonar
Because of the cross of Christ, we have access to the very throne of God. We are welcome as sons of the King, with all rights and privileges.

Arise My Soul
Charles Wesley
When the Bible says "therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus," it means just exactly that. We can live guilt free lives because of what Christ has accomplished.

Heal Our Land
Walt Harrah
National prayer, on behalf of a culture of godlessness, also including the Church. The hope is that we will repent and turn from our wicked ways, and that healing will take place.

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!
