Sermons about Worship
In November 12, 2011, The Christian Post Newspaper published an article entitled, Churchgoers More Likely to be Optimistic. This article highlights the study done by three major organizations, National Heart, Blood, and Lung Institute, the National Institutes of Health, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to nearly 100, 000 women regarding the correlation of going to church and the positive outlook in life. Their study shows that people who regularly attend church are 56 percent more likely to have an optimistic view of life and 27 percent less likely to succumb to depression. Time and again, we need to remind ourselves that it is for our personal advantage to attend church faithfully. I believe this is the reason why both the Old and New Testaments have direct exhortations about going to the house of God. Notice, the Psalmist clearly associates joy in going to the house of God. I know that technically speaking, the church did not exist in the Old Testament. But the Temple being referred to as the house of God was obviously functioning in the same way as the church, a place where we come to worship God publicly. While the author of Hebrews plainly states that we should not take the church for granted because this is where we meet our brothers and sisters in the Lord. He assumes that meeting together with the brethren provides mutual encouragement.
Christians gettting blessed and shouting at Lafayette Church of the Nazarene. Noisy Nazarenes!

Have no fear, Jesus is here! God's Word tells us about fear, how it effects us, and how we overcome it. Watch Pastor Steve McCartt as he talks about overcoming fear.
Many people today are searching for a great church that is appropriate to their need. In their minds having many programs and ministries that cater for all ages is already a great church. Others define a great church as having great music ministry with a dynamic worship team. For others, having a spacious state of the art facility that is attracts the crowd. To some, a great church also means having a coffee or café area where they can gather and fellowship over a hot cup of java or cappuccino. But the question is, “Is it really what God wants for his Church?” Yes, people are seeking out a great church with all of these features. But the church that He seeks is the church that really loves HIS church.
Jesus says that the greatest commandment is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, and soul and love our neighbor as ourselves. Is that even possible? How can we do it? More importantly, why?
