Why we Worship


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: | The challenge for the Christian is to live for others. The world teaches us the opposite. But as we look to Jesus, we find the pathway to true greatness marked out for us - a life of selflessness.

Commentary: | Our spiritual act of worship (Romans 12:1-2) involves not letting the world "squeeze us into its mold." (J. B. Phillips) And the primary way the world influences us is to cause us to think about ourselves first and foremost.

Dying to self is the way of the Sprit. But it is against the grain, and contrary to our natural disposition. Jesus, however, lived a life of perfect selflessness, and when we look to him we find hope and inspiration to live for others. And we have the Holy Spirit inside us, cheering us on, empowering us to "consider others better than ourselves." (Philippians 2:3)
