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?



 


There was a time in the Old Testament when, while cleaning out the Temple, a "book" was found. People began reading it, and before long, the city of Jerusalem was repenting! Only one book has such power - God's word, the Bible.

The precepts of the LORD....are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb. Psalm 19

One aspect of the Fall is that we value too highly that which does not deserve such attention, and we disregard what is most valuable. Considering that the word of God is just that - the WORD OF GOD! - is it not amazing that we can ramain so casual as to its influence on our lives?

Jonathan Edwards has an admonition for us today:

You all have by you a large treasure of divine knowledge, in that you have the Bible in your hands; therefore be not contented in possessing but little of this treasure.

God hath spoken much to you in the Scripture; labour to understand as much of what he saith as you can.

God hath made you all reasonable creatures; therefore let not the noble faculty of reason or understanding lie neglected.

Content not yourselves with having so much knowledge as is thrown in your way, and as you receive in some sense unavoidably by the frequent inculcation of divine truth in the preaching of the word, of which you are obliged to be hearers, or as you accidentally gain in conversation; but...

.....let it be very much your business to search for it, and that with the same diligence and labour with which men are wont to dig in mines of silver and gold.

JONATHAN EDWARDS
