Review worshipping god in spirit and truth l.jpg
Review – Worshipping God in Spirit and Truth

  • This is a study series looking at True Worship, and True Worshippers

  • So Far, we have looked at the Wrong Ways to Worship, and then the Right Ways to Worship God

  • Today, we begin to look at HOW God’s people worshipped God – starting with Abraham and his son Isaac in Genesis 22

Worship what is it l.jpg
Worship … What is it?

  • To show someone’s worth-ship!

  • An act of ascribing worth/value to a person

  • To honour – extol, lift-up, praise

  • To please

  • To bless

  • To love with all the heart

  • To glorify – put all the attention on

  • To serve gladly and whole-heartedly

  • When a person worship’s God, these things are all active!

Background genesis 21 33 34 22 1 l.jpg
Background(Genesis 21:33,34; 22:1)

  • Abraham lived to worship God, no matter the cost!

  • That determination was going to be tested in this chapter

  • Abraham had seen some serious failures in his own life - Lack of faith

  • Abraham had also seen God do some great things in his life

  • Abraham had been learning how to worship God, but in Genesis 22, he will learn thoroughly, and God will show us perfectly

God s test of worship genesis 22 2 l.jpg
God’s Test of Worship (Genesis 22:2)

  • What is the most important thing to you?

    • Your Problems?

    • Your Past?

    • Your Friends?

    • Your Lack of Money?

    • Your Prestige and Position in people’s eyes?

    • All of the above get in the way of our worship that is due unto God

  • For the rich young ruler money was most important

  • For Peter, it was the Messianic kingdom

  • For Paul, the Jewish religion was most important

  • For Abraham, Isaac was most important

Abraham s response genesis 22 3 l.jpg
Abraham’s Response (Genesis 22:3)

  • Patient Obedience

  • Prepared Obedience

  • Silent Obedience

Abraham s faith genesis 22 4 5 l.jpg
Abraham’s Faith (Genesis 22:4,5)

  • He saw the end from the start

  • He leaned only on his God to carry him

  • He went all this way “to worship”

  • He was NOT sure of what was going to happen

  • He just knew God would bring BOTH Abraham AND Isaac back down the mount, and then back home

Abraham s worship genesis 22 5 10 l.jpg
Abraham’s Worship(Genesis 22:5-10)

  • It Was a Burden

  • It Was a Picture (John 8:56)

  • It Was a Sacrifice

    • There is no worship without a Sacrifice

    • There is no worship without a Cost – a high cost!

    • There is no worship without Faith - he had to trust

    • There is no worship without Obedience

    • There is no worship without an Altar

    • There is no worship without Detail

God s pleasure genesis 22 11 18 rev 4 11 l.jpg
God’s Pleasure(Genesis 22:11-18; Rev 4:11)

  • Is in our obedience – not in what we give (1Samuel 15:22)

  • Is in supplying the Sacrifice that we truly need – Himself the Lamb!

  • Is in showing Himself – we learn most of God in the fiery trials of our afflictions (Daniel 3:23-25)

  • Is in blessing us (Genesis 22:15-18)

Abraham s change genesis 22 19 l.jpg
Abraham’s Change (Genesis 22:19)

  • An unshakeable joy

  • A new address

  • A readiness for anything now

  • All because Abraham learned how to truly worship his God

Conclusion l.jpg

  • What is the most important thing to you?

  • How easy do you find it to obey when things are rough, and God’s will is hard?

  • Worship is an act of faith

  • How Determined are we to PLEASE GOD with our Worship, instead of please ourselves?

  • True Worship Will Change You

  • Begins with the new birth, and will follow through a testing – are you now better ready for that test – ready to worship? No matter the cost?
