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!

The Finish Line

THEME: The Christian life is a race. We are to run it, to finish, and to run in such a way as to win a prize. Such an attitude glorifies God.



Lyrics | Description

I consider everything a loss compared to knowing you

The surpassing greatness of your love by faith I will pursue

All the things I hold in high esteem seem trivial and small

Up against the glories of your grace, the passion of your call

 

Now with singleness of heart and soul and mind

With a second wind I'll cross that finish line

 

Everything I used to call success will burn like wood and hay

Only work that's done for Christ will last, but there's a price to pay

There's a righteousness that comes from God - it's time to put it on

Throwing off the weight that holds me back to run this marathon

 

Now with singleness of heart and soul and mind

With a second wind I'll cross that finish line

 

Though my past would haunt me, with God's help, I'll leave it all behind

There's a sure reward reserved for me, in seeking I will find

Pressing on to keep up with the pace, but only time will tell

Knowing others ran this race before will help me finish well

 

Now with singleness of heart and soul and mind

With a second wind I'll cross that finish line
