This printed pamphlet is a tool to use each week in personal worship time with God. The ultimate goal is for the worshiping church body to prepare to praise and worship responsibly in the Sunday Corporate Gathering.
As a true worshiper of God, we worship Him in spirit and truth according to the Word of God which is Truth. We come prepared with a "broken and contrite heart" (Psalm 51:17). Let us seek God’s heart as we prepare and meditate on the words of praise and worship for the Sunday celebration service.
MONDAY PSALM 95
“6 Come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker. 7 For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand.” Psalm 95:6,7.
Today is a different start for the week. As I began to read through the Psalms this morning, the first three were more about David and the Psalmist listing out the majestic greatness of God and ending with Psalm 108 and 138 with the commitment to bow before the Lord and to praise Him with all that is within. For some reason my soul was at unrest, and as I read through the Truth For Life treatment of Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening, it was dealing with offerings and Sacrifice. “6 And Samuel said, “Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams. 1 Samuel 15:22-23.
After I read through the devotional, it made sense why I was and am bothered. The Psalms this morning listed out the greatness of God and followed with Doxology of praise and worship. I thought about the church services that will be and are taking place around the world today. The thought of how few, if any will start with the full commitment and knowledge of God’s own design and purpose for a direct response to His greatness; pure and simple doxology of surrendered worship and obeisance (the act of bowing down in complete surrender – emptied and poured out) for HIS pleasure ALONE! All of this to say, the mission of pursuing the teaching and modeling true Biblical PRAISE and WORSHIP with international purpose according to God Himself in His Word has never been so necessary
