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!

Purpose: | Our God is powerful, and in the "business" of delivering. Hard times are the very time to cry out for His power to be displayed.

Commentary: | Call on me in the day of trouble,
        and I will answer you,
                and you will honor me. 
                                    Psalm 50:15

Jesus said that in this world we would have trouble. (John 16:33)  But our God is a refuge, a hiding place, a source of comfort, a rock. We can take comfort knowing that Jesus lived here before us, facing the same trials and temptions that we face.  And he persevered, triumphing even over death.  For the Christian, trials are inevitable, because through them our faith, which is of greater worth than gold, may prove genuine, resulting ultimately in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. (1 Peter 1:6)  The confidence we have is that all things work out for the good of those who love God and follow his ways.  There is simply no trouble bad enough to separate us from the love of God that is found in Jesus Christ our Lord.  (Romans 8)
