Have you ever wondered why we worship at church on Sunday?

Here’s the Truth: worship is so much more than singing, playing an instrument, or any of the other things we defined as worship…

Real worship is an expression of what we think about GOD. And, worship is the pathway to the Purpose Jesus designed for us. In fact, worship is the Road to Promise!

THE EXPRESSION OF WORSHIP

SERMON NOTES

(JOHN 4:24, KJV) GOD is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.

Is there a right way to worship?

THE EXPRESSION OF WORSHIP

My Worship is an expression of my relationship with Jesus

5 biblical expressions of worship:

  1. Singing in Inconvenient Places

(ACTS 16:24-25, NLT) The jailer put them into the inner dungeon and clamped their feet in the stocks. Around midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to GOD, and the other prisoners were listening.

  1. Breaking My Future

(LUKE 7:36-37, NLT) When a certain immoral woman from that city heard [where Jesus] was eating, she brought a beautiful alabaster jar filled with expensive perfume. Then she knelt behind [Jesus] at his feet, weeping. Her tears fell on his feet, and she wiped them off with her hair. Then she kept kissing his feet and putting perfume on them.

  1. Giving Without Limits

(MARK 12:41-44, NLT) Jesus sat down near the collection box in the Temple and watched as the crowds dropped in their money. Many rich people put in large amounts. Then a poor widow came and dropped in two small coins. Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has given more than all the others who are making contributions. For they gave a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she had to live on.”

  1. Surrender My Family

(GENESIS 22:10-12, NLT) Abraham picked up the knife to kill his son as a sacrifice. At that moment the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!”

“Yes,” Abraham replied. “Here I am!”

“Don’t lay a hand on the boy!” the angel said. “Do not hurt him in any way, for now I know that you truly fear GOD. You have not withheld from me even your son, your only son.”

  1. Surrender Myself

(LUKE 22:42, NLT) “Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”

CHANGING MY ATMOSPHERE

My expression of worship is determined by how I see GOD

NEXT Step:

Make a list of my priorities—my abilities, my future, my fear, my family, and myself—then set aside time every day this week to surrender each of these priorities to Jesus as worship.

THE VISION OF WORSHIP

SERMON NOTES

(JOHN 4:24, KJV) GOD is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.

How can GOD expect me to worship when my life is so                                                 ?

THE VISION OF WORSHIP

(ROMANS 12:1-2, NLT) Dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to GOD because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let GOD transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know GOD’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Worship changes how I see GOD, myself, and the world

Three realities I’ll see when I change my vision through worship:

  1. GOD isn’t distant… He’s Emmanuel
  2. I’m not a victim, I’m an overcomerthrough Jesus
  3. The world isn’t my enemy, the world is my opportunity

Live my life as an expression of His greatness

CHANGING YOUR VISION

My view of worship is determined by how well I see GOD’s Vision for my life

(MATTHEW 6:31-34, NLT) “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of GOD above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”

NEXT Step:

Make a list of everything you’d like to accomplish in this life, then pray Matthew 6:31-34, and ask Jesus to fulfill His Purpose in your life

THE POWER OF WORSHIP

SERMON NOTES

(JOHN 4:24, KJV) GOD is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.

I love Jesus… isn't that enough?

THE POWER OF WORSHIP

(COLOSSIANS 4:5-6, NLT) Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.

When worship is the foundation of my lifestyle, my life impacts the people around me

Three ways to experience the power of worship:

1. Worship makes my life ATTRACTIVE

2. Worship makes my life FULFILLED

3. Worship makes my life EFFECTIVE

Releasing WORRY and ANXIETY is worship because it allows Jesus to be GOD in my SITUATION

Simply live my RELATIONSHIP with Jesus OUT LOUD

CHANGE YOUR WORLD

The power of my worship is determined by how I see GOD

I can change my world when my own life has been radically changed

(GALATIANS 3:26-29, NLT) For you are all children of GOD through faith in Christ Jesus. And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes. There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and GOD’s promise to Abraham belongs to you.

NEXT Step:

Make a list of the people in my life who don't know Jesus, then make a dedication to pray for them every day until they find Him
