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!

Lyrics | Description

The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom.

Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom;
       it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.
       The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
       the splendor of Carmel and Sharon;
       they will see the glory of the LORD,
       the splendor of our God."My people!"

Isaiah 35:1-2

What a cheering revelation: "Your God!" How much of meaning is couched in those two words, "My people!"

The whole world is God's; the heaven, even the heaven of heavens are the Lord's and he reigns among the children of men. But he says of a certain number, "My people."

Those chosen and purchased to himself, he says of them "My people."

In this word there is the idea of ownership to teach us that we are the property of God. In some special manner the "Lord's portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance."

All the nations upon earth are his; he takes up the isles as a very little thing; the whole world is in his power. Yet his people, his chosen, favored people, are more especially his possession.

He has done more for them than others; he has bought them with his blood; he has brought them near himself; he has set his great heart upon them; he has loved them with an everlasting love, a love which many waters cannot quench, and which the revolutions of time will never suffice in the least degree to diminish.

"My people!" O my hearers, can you by faith put yourselves in that number who believe that God says of them, "My people?"

Can you look up to heaven to-night, and say, "My Lord, and my God? Yours by that sweet relationship which entitles you to call him Father, yours by that hallowed fellowship in which he delights to hold with you when he is pleased to manifest thyself unto you in a more profound way than the world can ever know?

When you look into your heart, do you find there the footprints of your salvation? Can you read of your standing that was written in his in precious blood?

Can you in humble faith lay hold of Jesus's garments, and say, "My Christ?"

If you can, then God says of you, "My people;" for if God be your God, and Christ your Christ, the Lord has a special, peculiar favor to you. You are the object of his choice, and you shall be accepted, at last, in his beloved Son.

C. H. Spurgeon
