Isaiah 45:21-24 (Our Call to Worship) 21 Consult together, argue your case. Get together and decide what to say. Who made these things known so long ago? What idol ever told you they would happen? Was it not I, the Lord? For there is no other God but me, a righteous God and Savior. There is none but me. • Only God is Great 24 The people will declare, “The Lord is the source of all my righteousness and strength.” And all who were angry with him will come to him and be ashamed. • Only God is Good (Righteous) 22 Let all the world look to me for salvation! For I am God; there is no other. • Only God is God! • Only God Can Save! (The paralytic – Luke 5:18-26)
Psalm 40:2-5 (Old Testament Reading) 2 He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. • Mankind is a Mess 3 He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. • God is Worthy of Our Praise 4 Oh, the joys of those who trust the Lord, who have no confidence in the proud or in those who worship idols. • Trust in God Results in Joy 5 O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them. God is Great!
Psalm 40:6-8 (Old Testament Reading) 6 You take no delight in sacrifices or offerings. Now that you have made me listen, I finally understand — you don’t require burnt offerings or sin offerings. 7 Then I said, “Look, I have come. As is written about me in the Scriptures: 8 I take joy in doing your will, my God, for your instructions are written on my heart.” • Obedience is Better than Sacrifices • Joy is Found in Doing God’s Will • Instruction on the Heart: A Privilege! • Romans 9:19-26 • WE’LL BE MOST HAPPY SERVING GOD AS HE HAS DESIGNED US TO SERVE!!
Points Regarding God’s Sovereignty Why is God Sovereign? He is the creator! What He has made he can unmake!! (Col. 1:15-17) & (Hebrews 1:2-3) Why did God make the earth? For His enjoyment and man’s habitation. (Genesis 1&2) Why did God make mankind in His image? To provide an eternal companion for His Son. (Rom.8:28) We know that all things [the entire cosmos] work together [are cooperating] for good to them that love God [the Church], to them who are called according to his purpose [the Bride].
