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?



 


On the surface, this world seems promising. But as wonderful as it is, it can't compare with knowing Christ, and the living water he supplies that quenches any and every thirst.

John Bunyan PILGRIM'S PROGRESS

Only a person who has tasted of the heavenly fruit, and drunk the living water would understand making singleminded conversation that focuses on the eternal, and treats the temporal as inconsequential.

Malcolm Muggeridge spent half of his life drowning in earthly pleasures. And when he discovered the glory of Christ, there was no turning back.

I may, I suppose, regard myself or pass for being a relatively successful man. People occasionally stare at me in the streets - that's fame.

I can fairly easily earn enough to qualify for admission to the higher slopes of the Internal Revenue.  - that's success.

Furnished with enough money and a little fame even the elderly, if they care to, may partake of trendy diversions - that's pleasure.

It might happen once in a while that something I said or wrote was sufficiently heeded for me to persuade myself that it represented a serious impact on our time - that's fulfillment.

Yet I say to you, and I beg you to believe me - multiply these triumphs by a million, add them all together, and they are nothing - less than nothing, a positive impediment - measured against one draught of that living water Christ offers to the spritually thirsty irrespective of who or what they are.
