GOD IS CALLING HIS PEOPLE TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP!

Psalm 100:1-5 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

 

I believe if a church is to bless and meet the needs of the people, it must be: what is worship? Worship is to feel in your heart and express in some appropriate manner a humbling but delightful sense of admiring awe and astonished wonder and overpowering love in the presence of Our Father Which Are in Heaven.

I . A Church That Prays
A Church That Worships and Praises the Lord.

II. How Are We To Come To The Lord? (Psalm 100:1-3)
  A. Verse 1. With a joyful noise.
    1. Joy is the byproduct of obedience.
  B. Verse 2. With gladness and singing.
  C. Verse 4. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him,
  D. Blessing the Name of Jesus.
  E. How do we do this? With a glad heart.
  F. Why do we do this? PS 100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture

III. Where and when are we to Praise The Lord?
Everywhere in general. Psa 34:1 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
  A. Especially in the church.

Conclusion: We are not all the same; all will not worship the Lord in the same way. Some will praise Him with tears, some with a smile, some with a laugh and some with a shout. God sees the heart and sees the worship and hears the praise. It will bring answer to prayer also.

GOD OUR FATHER DESIRES OUR PRAISE AND WORSHIP.
Everyone needs recognition for his accomplishments, but few people make the need known quite as clearly as the little boy who said to his father: "Let's play darts. I'll throw and you say "Wonderful!'"

God bless you and yours.
On behalf of this generation,
Your friends in the service of Christ,
