Sermons on Worship

Worship and the Unbelieving Seeker

When we think about all that goes into planning a worship service, where is our focus? Do we focus on what our people want? Do we focus on what the world sees as attractive? Or do we focus upon God and what pleases Him? In our text today, we will spend some time considering the effect that true worship has upon the life of a seeker, but in order to do that, we will also be looking at the impact of a false, frenzied worship as well.

Worship and the Generosity of the Believer

What thoughts and worries consume our moments and our days? Is God permeating those moments? If worship is a way of life, then every moment of that life should be designed to bring glory to God—even our finances. In his letter to the Corinthian church, Paul focuses on our motivation for giving, which is the grace of God. He then reveals a number of evidences that appear when our giving is motivated by grace—when our giving becomes a spiritual act of worship.

Worship and the Salvation of the Believer

In this sermon, we will spend some time examining Paul’s instructions to Titus concerning how to live in such a way to bring glory to God in our lives. Paul gave similar instructions in chapter five of his letter to the Roman church. The Bible teaches us that God saved us as a result of his loving-kindness, and experiential knowledge of this salvation is a requirement to be able to truly worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

Worship and the Special Revelation of God

Last week, we considered God’s general revelation. We looked at some aspects of creation and determined that creation demands a Creator. So as we look once again at Psalm 19 this morning, I want us to focus specifically on the role of God’s special revelation in our worship. And as we study this psalm, I want us to notice that worship is not just a physical activity but also a spiritual attitude and cleansing.

Worship And the General Revelation Of God

General Revelation refers to the knowledge that we have as the result of God creating the cosmos and the moral conscience within each human being. In response to God’s general revelation, our first priority as believers when it comes to worship is to repent of our sins—asking God to ‘first clean the inside’ of my life. Our second priority is to discover who God is because it is easy to worship creation rather than the Creator. And finally, we need to realize today that it does not matter who we are or where we live on planet earth, we have no excuse to NOT worship God.
