Don’t just take our word for it . . . take His! We would encourage you to spend time examining the following Scriptures that shaped this sermon: Psalm 27
- David was known for being a great king, musician, songwriter, statesman, and military leader of Israel. However, he clearly states in Psalm 27:4 what consumed him, defined him and was his greatest passion. Worship. David knew that we were made to worship.
- True worship is a valuing of or treasuring of God above all else.
- God has “hardwired” us for worship.
- Through the fall in the Garden, we began to worship things other than God.
- God has recreated us in Christ to worship him and, through worshipping him, to know his presence.
- How would you define worship? Does it require certain rituals or buildings?
- What do you value or treasure in life? What do you treasure most?
- If creation is a manifestation of the self-expression of God, what or whom does that mean that creation points to?
- If God is infinitely beautiful, glorious and majestic, what does our being made in God’s image mean we are uniquely designed to recognize, value, and reflect?
- “Worship. We were made for this.” What do you think of this? Do you agree? Disagree? Why? Why not?
- How did the fall of humanity affect worship?
- How has it affected your worship?
- How might God giving you a new heart through your salvation impact your worship?
- The outline and application questions are intended for your further reflection and action upon the weekend message. They are also designed to facilitate discussion and accountability within your LifeGroup.
