Greater Worship

The height of insanity is doing the same thing
over and over again and expecting different results.
~ Albert Einstein

We all WORSHIP something.

Worship is our RESPONSE to what we VALUE MOST.

Romans 1:21-23 (ESV)

21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

What does God really want?

Psalm 50:8-15 (ESV)

8 Not for your sacrifices do I rebuke you;
your burnt offerings are continually before me.
9 I will not accept a bull from your house
or goats from your folds.
10 For every beast of the forest is mine,
the cattle on a thousand hills.
11 I know all the birds of the hills,
and all that moves in the field is mine.
12 “If I were hungry, I would not tell you,
for the world and its fullness are mine.
13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls
or drink the blood of goats?
14 Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving,[a]
and perform your vows to the Most High,
15 and call upon me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”

1. THANK HIM sincerely.

Psalm 50:14 (ESV)

14 Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving,[a]
and perform your vows to the Most High,

1 Corinthians 15:57 (ESV)

57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

2. Keep your COMMITMENT.

Psalm 50:14 (ESV)

14 Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving,[a]
and perform your vows to the Most High,

Romans 12:1 (ESV)

A Living Sacrifice

12 I appeal to you therefore, brothers,[a] by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.[b]

3. CALL on Him!

Psalm 50:15 (ESV)

15 and call upon me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”

Deuteronomy 6:14-15 (ESV)

14 You shall not go after other gods, the gods of the peoples who are around you— 15 for the Lord your God in your midst is a jealous God—lest the anger of the Lord your God be kindled against you, and he destroy you from off the face of the earth.

What God really wants is A RELATIONSHIP with me.

James 4:8 (ESV)

8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Romans 5:1 (ESV)

Peace with God Through Faith

5 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
