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?

 

Justice

For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe. He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing. (Deuteronomy 10:17-18)


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.

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?

Sometimes as Christians we have to say things that no one wants to hear. And it is at times like that when our mettle is proved. Rarely are we warned ahead of time. Are we ready to stand? The proof is in the pudding.

Outrage and The Holiness of God
A jaded Christian is an oxymoron. Anything that is hurtful to God must hurt us as well. We must not become so self-protective that we are not emotionally impacted by rebellion against God. And any such identification pleases God.

A Prophet For Our Times
Certain men and women hear from God at key times, and see with eyes that are unimpeded by the smog of culture. David Wells is one such person worth listening to.

Wrath and Mercy
We like thinking of God as merciful. We are very uncomfortable thinking of him being wrathful, of calling us to account for sin and rebellion. But as it turns out, God's justice is a combination of both mercy and wrath.
