Sermons about Worship
During this Holy Week, it's appropriate to think about Jesus going to Jerusalem, preparing to sacrifice his life. This is the ultimate act of obedience and act of worship. Obedience and Worship cannot exist without each other. You can’t have obedience without worship, and you can’t worship without obedience.
We get to the second major question in John's epistle: Is our Christianity real? John uses a variety of tests to tease out whether or not someone who claims to have fellowship with God gives evidence of it. The first of these is a matter of walking in the light. God's very nature is light, and John expects people to bask in God's luminous nature. Their obedience to Him radiates His light to the dark world surrounding them. Worship fuels witness. And when the believer basks in God's nature, the problems of the world have a way of growing smaller.
Borrowing once again from the example of Abraham, authentic worship requires personal preparation and forethought. This teaching focuses on pre-service preparation and getting in the correct frame of mind for meaningful worship.
The people praising Jesus on Palm Sunday saw Him as a political figure, a conquering King. However, Luke paints a picture of a cross-bound Jesus, and we're pointed forward to the worship in Revelation 7 where all peoples will worship the crucified and risen King.
There is a point when the Lord actually becomes weary with what is supposed to be good. When praise and worship become an abomination. The people of Isaiah's day had the pattern of worship but their hearts were far from it. Today, The Lord desires truth, honesty and pure hearts.. Lord Teach Us!

God still speaks today and He gives us vision to see what we need to see, when we need to see it! We just have to open our eyes!
This teaching compares God's love language -- the acts of worship encouraged and authorized in the Bible -- compared to man-made innovations and unbiblical expressions of worship.
