"OUR PURPOSE IS TO PRAISE HIM"!!
Worship Must Be Christ Centered And Not Man Centered Because It Doesn't Really Matter What We Want To Hear
We Should Want To Do What He Wants To Hear
Worship Was Never Created To Get Us In The Church, Worship Is Designed To Get Him There
If And When It Is Right Worship, It Will Be Centered About Him And Not Centered About Us
Worship Isn't About Our Feelings, It Never Was About Us, It's Always Been About Him
So We Have To Distinguish Between Worship and Ministry, Because Ministry Is Not More Important Than Worship (to be honest, I would rather worship than anything else any day)
So As We Look At Worship, It Should Be A Priority In Our Everyday Lives
(We Were Created To Be WORSHIPPERS, NOT PREACHERS)
Now They Are Both Necessary, But They Are Not Both Worship
You See If The Music Ministers To You And You Alone, You're Favorite Song, You're Style, You're Kind, IT'S NOT Worship. It's Just Us Singing Our Favorite Song
If We Are Doing It Because It Is Pleasing To Our Flesh, We Are Just Having Entertainment Sessions
IT MUST BE WORSHIP TO HIM!!
God inhabits the praises of His people
When He Hears The Sound Of Worship, He Comes
Yes Sir, Yes Ma'am, He Wants Our Praise!
When We Worship and Praise That's a Where We Will Find Him, Cause That's Where He Lives!!
But Don't Ever Become Common With The Presence Of God
(1 Chronicles 13:7-11) God Does Not Need Our Support, He Needs Us To Carry His Presence With Our Worship
Uzzah Became Familiar With Gods Presence and Therefore Thought He Was Authorized To Handle The Ark By Trying To Hold It From Falling.
BUT WE CAN'T TOUCH GOD WITH FLESH!!
IT WILL KILL FLESH
I Don't Want To Be Common With The Presence Of God!
I Want To Reverence His Presence
Praise Is Essential To God Showing Up
And When He Shows Up, MIRACLES HAPPEN!!
Blessing's to you,
