We’re continuing our Committed to Christ sermon series this weekend. We’ve rediscovered the joy of prayer and the power of the Bible. There have been over 100 prayer and Bible reading commitments so far. This Sunday we’ll talk about what it means to worship God.
Of course, we talk a lot about attending and inviting others to worship services. Surely, though, God wanted us to know more about worship than just to go to a church service, sit, listen and go home. Right?
Jesus showed us, at least once, the joy of worship.
At that same hour Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, ‘I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.’
Then turning to the disciples, Jesus said to them privately, ‘Blessed are the eyes that see what you see! For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.’
What do you think about this worship service?
