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?

 

Satisfaction

Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:13-14)


Living Water
| Walt Harrah
Jesus offers a water for spiritually thirsty people, and once they drink of it, they never thirst again, for it becomes an everlasting spring that flows out of them.

Strength of My Heart
| Walt Harrah
When our hearts are set on God alone, all is well, and we are satisfied in him.

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.

Everything I Need
| Walt Harrah
There's lots of desires we have that seem to be necessary. But only God can be an all-sufficient substitute, satisfying completely all the time, in every situation.

We Remember You
| Walt Harrah
The sacrifice of our Lord, highlighted and emphasized in the celebration of communion, elicits praise to our praiseworthy God.

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.
