With a big Night of Worship approaching at Fellowship of the Parks, I thought it would be great to share one of the greatest "call to worship" passages in Scripture. In the very last Psalm, we are commanded to worship and praise God with everything that is in us...and to do so...loudly!
Psalm 150 - Praise the LORD! Praise God in his sanctuary, praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with the trumpet sound; praise him with the lute and harp! Praise him with the tambourine and dance, praise him with strings ad pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals, praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the LORD! Praise the LORD!
"Praise the LORD!", is not only a declaration, but a command. As Christ followers, we are commanded to give God the glory that he is due. Why wouldn't we? Think of how he has blessed us and all that he has done for us. He has set us apart to know his salvation and the satisfying joy of having a relationship with him. He has shared the glory of creation with us. He has invited us to be a part of his story of reconciling the world to himself. The list could go on and on. This great God is so worthy of our praise, our adoration, our song, our worship!
In the last few verses of that passage, I hear the Psalmist saying, "Plug in the electric guitars, crank the amps, push the faders, slap da bass, crash the cymbals, and beat the drums! Lift your hands, fall to your knees, lift your voice as loud as you possibly can. Why? Because our God is worthy of our praise! Worship with your entire being!"
I want to share with you a video talking about the power of music, the song, and worship. CLICK HERE.
I want to invite you to join us at one of our DFW campus locations Sunday night, August 17, at 6pm. Haslet | Grapevine | Keller Even if you can't join us, I pray that wherever you may find to worship, that you will let yourself go and worship our God fully for all that he is worth. I pray that if you are on the journey to faith, or even if you are far from it, that God would pull the strings of your heart to see that we all worship something, and that we are most fulfilled when we worship him.
