Worship

Worship-to worship it is used of an act of homage or reverence.

We now live in age that worship can vary in meanings. Worship should be a complete life style beyond the Sunday morning experience.

As we are transformed into the image of Christ we must take into consideration Ezek. 18:31 (human commitment and action) with Ezek 36:26–27 (divine gift). Both are needed!

As we Worship God we do so in spirit and in truth, these two govern our actions. (2 Pet. 1:3–4) is to be formed in every believer (2 Cor. 3:18;) by the renewing of your mind” This is from the Greek root for new in quality (kainos), not new in time (chronos).

Worship enlightens our worldview, along with the indwelling Spirit, it is what transforms the mind and lifestyle of new believers.

Believers look at reality in a totally different way because their minds have been energized by the Spirit.

The will of God is that we be saved through Christ (John 6:39–40), and then live like Christ (Rom. 8:28–29; Gal. 4:19, Eph. 1:4; 4:13, 15; 5:17–18).

Christian assurance is based on (1) the promises of a trustworthy God; (2) the indwelling Holy Spirit (Rom. 8:14–16); and (3) the believer’s changed and changing life ( James & I John); “no fruit, no root” (Matt. 13:1–9, 19–23).

Worship requires understanding of what the will of God is.

Ezk 18:31-32 Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord God. “Therefore turn and live!”

Jn 4:34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.

Jn 5:30 I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.

Jn 9:31 Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will, He hears him.

1Jo 5:14-17 Confidence and Compassion in Prayer Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin which does not lead to death, he will ask, and He will give him life for those who commit sin not leading to death. There is sin leading to death. I do not say that he should pray about that. All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin not leading to death.
