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?

 

The Plan of God

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is not being done, the saving of lives. (Genesis 50:20)


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."

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

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.

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

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

For The Glory Of Your Name
| Walt Harrah
Repentance and prayer for revival

The Glory Goes To You
| Walt Harrah
Giving God credit for all that transpires in our lives is the essence of thanksgiving. It's all His doing, not ours.

So Grateful
| Walt Harrah
"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." I Thessalonians 5:18

I Wait In Hope
| Walt Harrah
Waiting on God glorifies Him. But waiting without the "wringing of hands," waiting in hope, glorifies Him even more.

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.

God's Bigger
| Walt Harrah
No power anywhere, in heaven or on earth, can defeat Almighty God, the God who showed Himself to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and who sent His own Son to save mankind from their sin. Name any problem, our God is bigger.

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?

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

A Miracle For You
| Walt Harrah
Our God, who has all power, never faces any obstacle that he can't fix. He turns desert places into springs. Miracles are his "bread and butter." So we wait on him expectantly.

Endless Praise
| Walt Harrah
The sacrifice of Jesus to bring us back to God is so magnificent, that for all of eternity, it will be the theme of our praise. There will never be a time when it is inappropriate or out of date to thank our Savior Jesus Christ.

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.

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.

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

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.

Father You Are Sovereign
Margaret Clarkson
When we say God is sovereign, we mean that nothing trumphs Him, his purposes can never be thwarted. His power is absolute, and nothing catches Him off guard. This is the ultimate statement of confidence, for who would not worship a God like this?

I'm Reconciled
Walt Harrah
Because of the Fall, we were God's enemies. Now, through the death of Jesus, we are friends, we are welcomed into God's presence once again through the blood of Jesus. That is reconciliation of the highest sort, and worthy of celebrating.

Hallowed Be Your Name
Walt Harrah
Our God is a prayer-hearing God. Prayer is the means by which we commune with God and he with us. And the essentials of prayer are found in the prayer that Jesus taught His disciples.

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.

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 Awesome God Who Can
Walt Harrah
Our minds are finite. And our imaginations have a governor on them. We see through a glass dimly. But God has no such limitations. The One who created the heavens and the earth is able to do far more than we could ask or even think.

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

Unchanging God
Isaac Watts
Everything around us may change, but the God we worship is immutable. It is not possible for him to improve, age, or morph. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. God will always be faithful. He cannot be anything else.

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!

So Much Joy
Walt Harrah
The coming of God's Son in the flesh to the town of Bethlehem was the best possible news, and the whole world would benefit. The angels couldn't contain themselves as they told the news, so why should we?

Anything
| Walt Harrah
God is alive and well and full of power, and ready to act in ways that further his plans and purposes. Nothing stops him, or tops him. He is supreme in power and authority.

The Best Is Yet To Come
| Walt Harrah
When the glory of the Lord is revealed, justice is served, righteousness is exalted, and God gets the final word. And that day will come!
