Psalm 100: A Prescription for Praise!

 

“Make a joyful moise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord is God; it is He that has made us and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise; be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good: His mercy is everlasting, and his truth endures to all generations.” -- Psalm 100 (all verses, 1 –…

Confusion about Worship Music

Many believers struggle with knowing what is appropriate as far as music used in worship.  Unfortunately, many Pastors seldom preach about worship and may have done little study of the subject.  Other Pastors or Evangelists may have very limited preferences for what they feel is appropriate and preach these preferences as gospel.  God's people are often left confused or very opinionated about what is appropriate based upon their own preferences or upon what they have heard.  In over 30 years…

Worship...It's all about giving!

The one true God, the Creator of all that is, has given to us all that we have ever known. Our lives, our very breath, our families, our gifts and talents, our earthly home, sunshine and rain, all of creation, the capacity to love and be loved, our minds and bodies, our eternal souls, His great love and mercy, salvation, and even His only Son... all these are given to us from the hand of God the Father, the maker of Heaven and Earth. What do we have that we can give to him? Can any gift from…

Understanding Worship

How can we recognize authentic worship, and how can we make sure that we as individuals are authentic in worshipping our Almighty God?  Is there a particular style or form of worship that is more authentic than any other?  Is there something that can be measured or seen in authentic worship?   What is the focus of authentic worship, and what should be our understanding of what the word ‘worship’ really means?  How can our church experience the kind of dynamic worship that blows the doors off…

Excerpt from "Relevance in Worship Ministry"

The message of the gospel is always relevant.  God’s love and mercy alwaysmatters.  The problem of perceived irrelevance has never been about the message itself.  When it comes to our relevance in sharing spiritual truth, what we do relationally and the message that we project to those around us (through our lives, our words, our posture, our attitudes, our musical preparation and choices, and even the expressions on our faces) impacts their willingness to hear the message…

Joyfully Sing!

Praise God for the gift of music!  Sometimes the emotions and the longings that we feel inside are inexpressible.  Words often seem inadequate to describe these depths and heights of human emotion and of the human condition.  Our relationships with those who we love as well as our relationship with the Lord cannot be reduced to mere verbal expression.  It is in situations such as these that music can be employed to give expression beyond what words convey.  What a blessing it is to be given…

Lifestyle Worship

Worship is the one activity of the church that will continue in Heaven.  If we were forced to eliminate all but one church activity on earth, worship would be the most important to continue.  Worship is the absolute daily goal for every Christian.  Since, according to I Corinthians 10:31, we are to do everything to the glory of God, our lives should be lived in a constant attitude of worship.  We will fall far short of this goal, but yet it becomes the passion of our hearts as we draw closer…
