God is looking for true worshipers – people who mean business when it comes to worship. God seeks people who have a passion for God and aren’t afraid to show it, who worship God for who He truly is and the way God wants to be worshiped, as revealed in the Bible. (Rory Noland, Worship on Earth As It Is In Heaven)
This morning, fresh from my experience at Refuge on St Simons Island, Georgia, I spoke on a Worship.Life. We explored the dialogue between Jesus and the Samaritan woman found in John 4. I formed my message around the movement in the text and these three questions:
- Where is the right place to worship? (4:19-24)
- Who is the right person to worship? (4:25-26)
- What is the right way to worship? (4:27-30, 39)
Here is a question I shared with our community for reflection and growth (and would love to hear your response as well): what does the movement of worship look like in your life in terms of:
- Where do you worship?
- Who do you worship?
- How do you worship?
- When do you worship?
This morning Rob, one of our guitar players (and my brother from the same mother) led our worship through music. He put together a really nice set of songs that reinforced the theme of a Worship.Life and he also shared a personal introduction to the Jeremy Camp song “Not Ashamed” which I was able to leverage in my message.
Our complete worship flow:
- Sing, Sing, Sing (Chris Tomlin)
- Reading from Psalm 96
- Everlasting God (Brenton Brown)
- Made to Worship (Chris Tomlin)
- World Vision Update
- Not Ashamed (Jeremy Camp)
- Message: Worship.Life
- Still I Will Worship You (Curt Coffield and Joe Horness)
- Benediction from Jude 20-21
