Our Vision: Worship God

March 12, 2017 Speaker: Fred Greco Series: Non-Series Sermons

Topic: AM Service Passage: John 4:20–24

Whether we realize it or not, we were all made to worship, and we all worship something. Some people worship money, others worship fame, and still others worship themselves. But the Bible tells us that we were created to worship the Creator and not things He has created (Romans 1:25). At Christ Church, our vision is to worship the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. We praise Him for what He has done for us – creating us and redeeming us through the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Worship begins there: recognizing that the Lord God alone is worthy of worship. But worship does not stop there – we must give ourselves wholeheartedly to worship. Who would hire a worker who promised to do as little work as possible? Who would say a husband was a good husband if he attempted to love his wife as minimally as possible? We are called to enter into the presence of the Lord “with joy and gladness” (Psalm 45:15) and to be active in our worship. We are also called to look to the Lord Himself as to the content of our worship, worshiping Him in truth. Everything that a church does is connected to worship – for the worship of God is the ultimate end of man. That is why at Christ Church, we begin with “Our Vision: Worship God” (John 4:20-24).

I. We Worship the One True God
A. The World is Confused About God
B. Our Worship is a Declaration About God

II. We Worship in Spirit
A. Worship is Active
B. Worship is Joyful

III. We Worship in Truth
A. Worship is God Directed
B. Worship is Not Optional

Questions for consideration: (1) In what ways is contemporary society confused about who God is? How does that confusion affect worship in the contemporary Church? (2) What are some hindrances to you being active and engaged in worship? What steps can you take to rectify that? (3) Why is it important to have our worship limited by what God has directed? What mistakes do we make when we seek to form our own worship? Why is worship an obligation of followers of Christ?
