I am continuing this week with some of the highlights in our study of 'Worship Matters" by Bob Kauflin
Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised, and His greatness is unsearchable" Psalm 145:3
David writes in Psalm 34:3 Oh Magnify the Lord with me, let us exalt His name together.
As we magnify the Lord together, we begin to realize that "God is bigger than our problems and joys, greater than our sorrows and successes, more significant than our tests and triumphs."
God has revealed Himself clearly through His Son, Jesus Christ through the Scripture.
As the One, true God is revealed, we are moved to worship.
Exploring God's Greatness through His Word, His nature, and His works.
We come to know God through His word. God is speaking to you and me, every day through His word.
Bob Kauflin writes, "We want people to leave in awe that God would speak to us--encouraged by His promises, challenged by His commands, fearful of His warnings, and grateful for His blessings."
His nature is revealed in beautifully in Psalm 145;8-9.
"The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all He made."
The Psalms are full of the characteristics of God's nature. He is faithful, loving, strong, powerful.
He is holy, wise, righteous.
We simply don't have enough words to fully describe the greatness of God's nature. We will never reach the end of the reasons He deserves our praise.
"Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; tell of all His wondrous works." Ps 105:2
When we worship, we are reminded that God created everything from nothing. His power holds all things together. (Colossians 1:17)
His greatest work is through His Son Jesus on the Cross given for you and me.
Bob writes, "In the cross we find a perfect reconciling of God's blazing holiness, holy justice, incomprehensible wisdom, omnipotent power, and unfathomable love."
What a God we worship!!!!
Let us magnify Him together,
