Worshiping Up Close and Personal

I have designated this month ‘God Pride Month’ in our church. I will post a series on worshiping God up close and personal. We are going to boast and brag about our God, our heavenly Father, our Savior King, our Redeemer, our Messiah, our mediator of a new covenant. We are going to proudly speak His Name in praise and worship as we focus on Him and worship Him!   In Exodus 19 we find Moses about to go to Mount…

Come to Worship and Bow Down before the Lord God your Maker.

Every time believers gather for the purpose of corporate worship of our God, we make a choice to worship and bow our hearts to the One who is the author and finisher of our faith. I find that worship is defined differently by different people. Some say it is when the music and singing starts. Some say it is when we have communion. Others say it is when the Word is taught and spoken to edify the body of Christ.…

Your Kingdom Come, Your Will Be Done….In Me!

Our Father in heaven, hallowed is your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Jesus said those words when asked by his closest followers to teach them how to pray. (Matt. 6:9,10; Luke 11:1,2). I bring closure to my series on ‘The Government of God’ by emphasizing that Jesus desires so much for His kingdom to come to us, individually and corporately. The eight essentials for God’s rule in your life as…

Worship is Essential to Establishing the Government of God.

Worship is essential to establishing the Government of God. The Lord’s prayer begins with ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven’.(Matt. 6:9,10) Jesus taught us that the coming of His kingdom down here begins with recognizing and declaring the Father’s heavenly status and holiness. The word ‘hallowed’ means ‘set apart as holy, honored greatly, revered’. Jesus is saying we are to worship Him for who…

Refined Leadership Brings Forth Joy and Worship

We lay it on the altar to be consumed by the fire of His grace. Refined leadership brings forth joy and worship because it is the natural response to being refined by the fire of grace. The Father approves of this ‘sacrifice’ of our life for His life and the people rejoice at God’s approval. Moses and Aaron were told to present certain offerings and sacrifices in Leviticus 9:23,24. After presenting the sacrifice it says the glory of the Lord…

Fearing Something Is the Same Thing As Worshiping It

The Bible says in Hebrews 11:1 that ‘faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.’ Faith requires us to believe something positive we don’t see. In fact, Godly faith even has an element of fear involved. Deuteronomy 6:13 says ‘fear the Lord your God, serve him only.’ However, Jesus quoted that same scripture to the devil in Matt. 4:10 by saying ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only’. Jesus…
