“COME LET US WORSHIP THE LORD”

PSALM 95-96 AND JOHN 4:23-24

JOHN TEEM JR. - JAN. 3, 2010

INTRODUCTION:

WE COME TO CHURCH FOR WHAT WE CALL A WORSHIP SERVICE

BUT ARE WE TRULY HERE TO WORSHIP?

WHO ARE WE HERE TO WORSHIP?

THE MUSIC LEADER?

THE PREACHER?

OURSELVES?

WE SHOULD BE HERE TO WORSHIP OUR LORD AND SAVIOR

BUT SOMETIMES I THINK WE ONLY COME TO DO OUR DUTY AND KEEP MAN’S TRADITION

GOD WANTS US TO WANT TO WORSHIP HIM OUT OF LOVE, NOT DUTY

HE WANTS IT TO BE SINCERE AND NOT JUST PLAYING CHURCH

WHEN I WAS A CHILD MY SISTER AND I USED TO PLAY CHURCH

BUT THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WHEN I WAS A CHILD I BEHAVED AS A CHILD AND THOUGHT AS A CHILD

BUT WHEN I BECAME A MAN I PUT AWAY CHILDISH WAYS

SO I ASK YOU THIS MORNING

HAVE WE PUT AWAY OUR CHILDISH WAYS?

WHY HAVE WE COME HERE TODAY?

MAYBE DAVID ASKED THE SAME QUESTIONS IN HIS DAY

LET US TAKE A LOOK AT PSALM 95 AND 96

I – WHY SHOULD WE WORSHIP THE LORD?

A – BECAUSE HE IS OUR CREATOR (PS 95:4-5, 96:5b)

1 - LOOK AT THE TREES AND THEIR LIMBS

THEY LIFT THEIR HANDS TO HEAVEN

2 - LISTEN TO THE BIRDS SING

LISTEN TO THE OCEAN ROAR

THEY LIFT THEIR VOICES TO HEAVEN

3 – SEE MAN’S FACE AS IT IS DOWNCAST

LISTEN TO MAN COMPLAIN AND GOSSIP

DO WE NOT KNOW WE WERE CREATED TO WORSHIP GOD?

LUKE 19:40 TELLS US THAT IF WE KEEP SILENT RATHER THAN PRAISE AND WORSHIP CHRIST THEN THE ROCKS WILL CRY OUT IN WORSHIP

B – BECAUSE HE IS OUR SAVIOR (PS. 95:1,9, PS 96:2)

1 - HOW CAN WE NOT HELP BUT TO WORSHIP THE ONE WHO HAS SAVED US FROM THE BONDAGE OF SIN AND HELL

C – BECAUSE HE IS OUR SUSTAINER (PS 95:7)

1 - CHRIST IS THE ONE WHO STRENGTHENS US WHEN WE FEEL WE CAN NOT GO ON

2 – HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW, HE SURELY WATCHES OVER ME

3 - SO GIVE GOD THE GLORY, IT IS NOT OURS

II – HOW SHALL WE WORSHIP THE LORD? (JOHN 4:23-24)

A – IN SPIRIT

1 – W/REVERANCE AND RESPECT

2 – WITH HUMBLENESS AND SINCERITY

B – IN TRUTH

1 – WORSHIP ACCORDING TO HIS WORD

2 – WITH WHOLE MIND AND HEART

III – WHEN SHALL WE WORSHIP THE LORD?

A – IN THE GOOD TIMES

B – IN TIMES OF TRIAL

C – AT ALL TIMES

REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS AND AGAIN I SAY REJOICE

IV – WHERE SHALL WE WORSHIP THE LORD

A – IN PRIVATE (IN OUR PRAYER CLOSET)

B – IN PUBLIC

C – IN HIS SANCTUARY

CONCLUSION:

SO ONCE AGAIN I ASK YOU ALL

WHY HAVE WE COME HERE TODAY?

IS WORSHIP ONLY SOMETHING WE SHOULD DO ON SUNDAYS?

I HAVE BEEN TOLD BY SOME,

“SAVE THAT FOR SUNDAY MORNING”

BUT I CAN NOT HOLD MY PEACE

JESUS SAID
