Faith Child – Worship – our highest praise

Worship is the expression of loving reverence and honor bestowed upon a being “worthy” of such reverence and honor. With reference to God, worship has to do with God’s “worth.”

The word “worship” originates from the Old English word, “weorthscipe” which literally means “worth + ship.” In a practical sense, worship is the expression of tribute to God’s “worth” — His praiseworthy nature (Psalm 145:3; Psalm 147:5), His attributes and works (Psalm 66:1-12). Because God is indeed “worthy” of our praise, we as worshippers praise God, glorify God, and honor God.

In Revelation 4:9-11,   the beasts and the twenty-four elders worship, casting their crowns before the throne saying:

You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created” (Revelation 4:11).

In  Revelation 5:13,  innumerable hosts in heaven and earth as well as the twenty-four elders worship God

Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!

Why was the Lamb of God to “receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing”? (Revelation 5:12).

Because He was “worthy”  to receive such (Revelation 4:11; Revelation 5:9). And because He was “worthy,” all creatures in heaven and on earth were found worshipping the Lamb of God (Revelation 5:9-14).

Brethren, the sheer joy of singing hymns of praise and devotion, only comes about when we fully appreciate and express the “worthiness” of God and the Lamb, thus giving all praise, glory, and honor to them.

In our worship, let us truly express our “joy” to the Lord for what He has done for us (John 3:16-17; Romans 5:1-11).

(College) Students Tell the Truth About the Hookup Culture

A young friend brought this organization to my attention recently.  WOW! This issue weighs heavily on my own heart, (I wrote previously about it here)…and just when I think the voices of insanity are beginning to win in this hyper-sexualized culture, I am so pleased to see young men and women deciding to go a different way – and take a stand.

Nuggets – Moved with Fear

Moved with Fear
“By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.” (Hebrews 11:7)

Noah was indeed a man of mighty faith, believing God’s word even about “things not seen as yet,” preparing for a worldwide flood in a day when God had never yet even “caused it to rain upon the earth” (Genesis 2:5). Noah was “a preacher of righteousness” (2 Peter 2:5) to an unbelieving world for at least 120 years (Genesis 6:3), “while the ark was a preparing” (1 Peter 3:20), without gaining any converts except his own family.

But why would he have been “moved with fear”? Noah was surely not afraid to die! He had “walked with God” (Genesis 6:9) for 600 years (Genesis 5:32; 7:11) before the Flood, and he was certainly not afraid to die and go to meet the Lord now.

Evidently it was for “the saving of his house” that he was afraid, realizing that his own children would soon be engulfed by the awful spirit of unbelief and wickedness that pervaded the antediluvian world if they could not somehow be delivered from it. So he “prepared an ark,” and his house was saved. “Come thou and all thy house into the ark,” said the Lord, “for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation” (Genesis 7:1). Although they could easily have refused, they all chose to follow Noah.

In a like manner today, God speaks to the head of each house: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house” (Acts 16:31). A consistent example of obedient faith set by a godly father (or mother, if necessary) almost inevitably results in his (or her) children also trusting in the Lord for salvation. Every caring parent should resolve that, “as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD” (Joshua 24:15). HMM

SIH’s Think On These Things: Ephesians 6:18

SIH TOTT ICON“Reflections Of His Grace”

“That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in [his] kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.”

 

 

The Grace Of Preparedness (6:10-20)

 Ephesians 6:10-20

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.  

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

 

This devotional, continues to look at the second main division of the book of Ephesians. Previously, we have looked at “Reflections Of His Grace Revealed” (chaps 1-3). It that section, Paul revealed to us the gracious works of the Lord in the lives of His chosen people.

Faith Child – No heartfelt singing

imagesYou are  in church to worship God. You are  singing. You are  praying along with the worship leader who is also leading the prayer.

As the preacher preaches from God’s word,  you follow the Bible passages as they are read. But nothing is happening inside. You really do want to worship the Lord, but you  feel as if you’re just going through the motions. What can you do?

Let’s turn  to Psalm 9, and follow David’s prompts as he expresses his heartfelt praise to the Lord:

  • Give thanks to the Lord with all our heart (Psalm 9:1).
  • Think about His “marvelous works” (Psalm 9:1).
  • Be glad, rejoice, and sing praise to His name! (Psalm 9:2).
