“The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth.” Psalm 97:5
Yesterday we wrapped up our worship series, Where Mountains Melt. Throughout our series, Lead Pastor Carl Gulley led us in talking about why we worship, how we worship and how to incorporate worship in to our daily lives.
TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF OUR TAKEAWAYS FROM OUR SERIES //
- Worship is what we’re always doing, whether we realize it or not, and it’s our response to the magnitude of God.
- When we are facing the impossible, our immediate response should be to get in the presence of God. Worship is our gateway into His presence.
- In the context of worship, and really life in general, multitasking does not work. Our worship was made for God, and God alone.
- True worship is not a compartmentalized life; it is an integrated one. When we invite God into every area of our lives, we ultimately find freedom.
- It is always right to worship, regardless of how we’re feeling. We were never designed to be authentic to our feelings. When we choose to allow our feelings to hold us back from worship, we aren’t living in authenticity.
- When our circumstances are telling us otherwise, we have to go back to the character of God. We may not always feel like worshiping, but there is beauty in choosing to offer up a sacrifice of praise.
- The goal of worship is not an expression, it is love and obedience toward Jesus. Spiritual maturity is not achieved once a particular worship expression occurs.
- Our comfort should not be our standard for worship. We want our worship to reflect heaven, even if it feels out of our comfort zone.
- Worship is not a single expression, it is a lifestyle.
We worship when we are obedient to what Jesus is calling us to. Whether it’s in the workplace or in the Auditorium on Sunday morning, we want our lives to be a reflection of our gratitude for being set free.
This past Sunday, we set aside time to worship for the entirety of our service. Because of the unique service, we will not have a sermon video from this week.
