Why we Worship

9th August 2017

 

This week I have been reading Psalm 95. The first seven verses are a beautiful ‘call’ to worship...

Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.
For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.
The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker;
For he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.
Psalm 95:1-7 The NIV Bible

I have been leading people in sung ‘corporate’ worship for 23 years! This Psalm has always been special to me as it’s such a clear and poetic explanation as to why we worship God. I have used it at the start of a ‘worship time’ as well as in my own devotions, reading, mediating and singing it. I was particularly pleased when American song writer and worship leader, Andy Park who put these words to music! So if you ever lose sight of our great God and why we worship turn to Psalm 95 for some inspiration!
