What worship is: a felt response to the worth of God What worship does: brings every other Christian activity to its proper end Slide 3 Who We Are & What Were About WORSHIP Worship is communal.

Isaiah 43:25 For your name's sake, O LORD, pardon my guilt, for it is great. Ps 25:11 For my name's sake I defer my anger, for the sake of my praise I restrain it for you, that I may not cut you off. 10 Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tried you in the furnace of affliction. 11 For my own sake, for my own sake, I do it, for how should my name be profaned? My glory I will not give to another. Is 48:9-11 Slide 5 Worship is God-centered.

Eph 2:4-7 What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruc- tion, 23 in order to make known the riches of his glory for vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory Rom 9:22-23 Slide 6 Worship is cross- centered. 1.The cross is the motive for our adoration. 2.The cross is the means of our access. 3.The cross is the ground for our acceptance.
