Follow Along with the Message

Let’s try to answer the question what is worship?  In order to do that we must first understand that…

1. Worship Behaviors Flow From Beliefs

One pastor said, “the truth we believe must at some point embrace us.”

Theology is never meant to be cold and lifeless. It must always have a practical aspect. 

The Amplified Bible reads, “I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you…”


2. Worship Motivation is Manifested by Mercy

Pastor Mark Batterson says that the prerequisite to worship is mercy.

Most of us know that we’ve been forgiven, but many of us overestimate our goodness while underestimating the amount of mercy we have received and still need.

Louie Giglio offers this helpful definition, “Worship is our response to what we value most.”


3. Worship is Ones Offering of Self

The word “offer” is a technical term that was used to describe the bringing and presenting of an animal for sacrifice on an altar.

The real question is, “Is my worship, both here and outside this room, pleasing to God?”


4. Worship is Service Not Selfish

Nowhere in the New Testament are we commanded to “go to worship.”

Christianity is not a spectator sport and worship is never meant to be something we do.
