What Worship is NOT:

A group of people singing songs to God with their eyes closed and hands lifted in the air while a rockin’ band gives you goosebumps as they play a worship song you really, really like in a church equipped with a killer sound system and a computerized overhead system

… with the lights dimmed

THE POINT: The church often misunderstands worship just as the Samaritan women at the well did…

What is Worship???

“Worship is interaction with God that is pleasing to Him”

Romans 12:1 “Therefore I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God - this is your spiritual act of worship”

What is Worship???

Six INGREDIANTS that worship REQUIRES in order to be fully acceptable by God:

1. SALVATION

Jesus said “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me” (John 14:6)

Worship is ETERNAL

Salvation is REQUIRED for worship because the very thing we are SAVED from is ETERNAL SEPERATION from God.

(something dies or is given up… something that was once there is no longer there)

OLD covenant worship = Blood sacrifice (The law)

NEW covenant worship = Jesus is the BLOOD sacrifice

…but we are the LIVING sacrifice (Rom 12:1)

A sacrifice in itself is not enough, it must be PLEASING to God

Cain vs. Able: Both offered a sacrifice to God. One was pleasing to God, the other was not. Why???

Why does God want sacrifice?

… because he wants your OBEDIENCE… “To obey is BETTER than sacrifice” (I Sam 15:22)

Jesus said “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift” (Matthew 5:23-24)
