God Is Worthy of Worship (1 of 40)
by Jesus Culture Resources
''Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.'' - Howard Thurman. Think about the main thing that inspires you. What is it that really makes you tick, that moves you to action? Humans are passionate beings. That's how God made us. When something catches our eye that...
When Worship Is about Me (5 of 7)
by Jim Perdue
Tonight, we continue our Sunday evening series entitled Accidental Pharisees. If we are not careful we can worship our traditions instead of worshipping Jesus. That's what Pharisees do. They love their rules, their standards, their traditions, and their preferences more than they love God. Jesus recognized this and would never let them get away with it. Here's a perfect example in Mark...
The Call to Worship - Part 1 (1 of 2)
by William Wyne
As we study scriptures week after week, privately and corporately, I think we would have to agree that God delights in being worshipped.
There are a plethora of things that God is pleased with and delights in. I truly believe that worship toward Him from creatures below is like a maestro directing a perfect symphony, and the maestro hears all of the instruments are...
Guidelines for Worship (3 of 11)
by Ken Trivette
The first commandment tells us that God is the one and only God, and we are to have no other gods before Him. The second gives us regulations for our worship. The Bible says in Psalm 29:2, ''Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.'' As well, we read in Psalm 99:5, ''Exalt ye the Lord our God, and worship at his footstool...

The Power of Worship (5 of 5)
by Jeff Schreve
Lord we praise You, and we bless You and we clap our hands to You. Lord You are worthy and our minds can't comprehend what it is going to be like that day we meet You in glory. Lord thank You for the promise that You have given to us and that is eternal life and that starts the moment that we receive You as Savior and Lord and it culminates in the day when faith turns to sight. And we get to meet You face to face Lord, the One that we...
Life Changing Worship (1 of 3)
by Ernest Easley
As you are turning to Colossians 3 .. I want to ask you a question: when was the last time you experienced life-changing worship? I mean, there was such an awareness and awe of His presence, such an atmosphere of His presence .. that your life was changed! I'm afraid that we worship our work .. work at our play .. and play at our worship and then wonder...
A Heart to Worship (6 of 13)
by Jeff Strite
In that early church at Corinth there was no New Testament like we have now. They might have had a copy of the Gospel of Matthew and perhaps a letter like the one to the Galatians, but there was much they didn't have available. So it seems God gave certain gifts to the worshippers to allow them to learn what you folks learn now directly from the New Testament. We believe that many...
Acceptable Worship (1 of 4)
by Joe Alain
What does our worship say about what we think of God? Is our worship acceptable to God? Is there a way to evaluate what is acceptable worship? Malachi is a book of revival and the first message that Malachi brought to God's people had to do with restoring their relationship with God, as evidenced by their worship. Apathy toward worship...

by Lenny Ports
We are in a sermon series called ''Instruments of God'' and our key verse is in Romans 6:13 And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. The word ''instruments'' in this text means instruments or weapons or tools. Last week we...
Cleaning House: An Avenue to Worship
by Robert Dawson
Through the years we accumulate a lot of stuff, I mean a lot of stuff. That is especially true for those of us who do not move frequently or have not moved recently. Things just pile up and leave little room for us. Rather than sort through them we store them. Much of the stuff we hold onto is no longer relevant to our lives. It may be...
Anointed by Grace for Worship and Obedience (39 of 48)
by Patrick Edwards
If you think back over the last thirty-something chapters of the book of Genesis, what might you say has been the biggest obstacle standing in the way of the promises of God from coming to fulfillment? I mean think back to Genesis 3:15, God promised that the seed of woman would be the means of rescue and redemption, what has...

After our youngest son had a tonsillectomy, the nurses would come in periodically and take his vital signs. There are vital signs in worship. Worship that is vital, enlivened, invigorating, and life-changing makes a difference. The Psalmist spoke of that kind of worship is Psalm 66. It says that vital worship . . .
Worship of God
by Johnny Hunt
Young pastors often ask me what is most important in the life of a young minister. Answer: Stay close and clean! In the first century, we find the religious establishment posing the same-type question.''Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?'' You need to know that the question was loaded. This question was one in...
