The Power of Worship

WHAT IS WORSHIP

SHOW REVERANCE AND ADORATION TO A DIETY

IT HAS A DEEPER MEANING

  1. RECOGNITION OF WHO GOD IS

PSALMS 95:6-7 “6 Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;7 for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.”

  1. REVERENCE GOD

DEEP RESPECT, HIGH ESTEEM, HIGH REGARD, GREAT RESPECT

PSALMS 5:7 – “But I, by your great love, can come into your house;
in reverence I bow down toward your holy temple.”

3. COMMUNION WITH GOD

SHARING AND EXCHANGING INTIMATE THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS

MATTHEW 28:20 –  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

CAN WE WORSHIP GOD IN DIFFICULT TIMES? YES, YEBO, JA, QUI, EE

2 CORINTHIANS 11: 23  “Are they servants of Christ? (I am out of my mind to talk like this.) I am more. I have worked much harder, been in prison more frequently, been flogged more severely, and been exposed to death again and again. 24 Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. 25 Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was pelted with stones, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea,”

26 ” I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my fellow Jews, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false believers. 27 I have laboured and toiled and have often gone without sleep; I have known hunger and thirst and have often gone without food; I have been cold and naked. 28 Besides everything else, I face daily the pressure of my concern for all the churches. 29 Who is weak, and I do not feel weak? Who is led into sin, and I do not inwardly burn?”

EXAMPLES IN THE BIBLE

JOB  – JOB 1:20

MOSES – EXODUS 17:11

CONCLUSION

ROMAN 8:31-39  “31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? “36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
