Psalm 33:19 (NIV)
Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
2 Praise the Lord with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
3 Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.
4 For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.
5 The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.
6 By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
7 He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses.
8 Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the world revere him.
9 For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.
How would you have defined “worship” before Will’s sermon?
Discuss/list out anything new you learned from the message regarding worship.
Looking at the Psalm above, can you find where there is revelation of God (who He is/what He has done) and the Psalmist’s response to God’s revelation?
In what ways can worship be a place of personal transformation?
“Worship is our response, both personal and corporate, to God for who He is, and what He has done; expressed in and by the things we say and the way we live.”
As you head into this next week, be aware of where God is revealing Himself to You (through Scripture/through His work in your life/through creation/others etc). In what ways can you worship Him afresh for who He is and what He has done?
As Will communicated in his message, musical worship is a place where the Holy Spirit works in us. For some though, the Holy Spirit and His ministry is a mystery.
This week, Will is joined by special guest, Carol Herron (Will’s Mom). Join them as they discuss the amazing, loving, personal work of the Holy Spirit we can experience in musical worship.
