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?

 

Refuge

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 46:1-2)



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)

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

The Lord Is My Light
| Walt Harrah
When we trust in the Lord and look to Him to deliver, and His strength to protect, we have nothing to fear. It's all good.

The Ultimate No-Brainer
I'll do it myself. Where does that come from, anyway? We're born with it. But seeing God as the One we turn to instead of "the arm of flesh" is the key to living life well. God is in control, so let Him lead. He's really good at it.
