Psalm 95 provides a primer on how we worship. The verbs in this chapter set the stage for our great experience and expression of worship. The author begins with the word “come”. Worship is that place where the heart of God and the heart of His children meet. Oswald Chambers said, “Worship is giving God the best He has given you.”
If you’re like me, Sundays are my favorite day of the week. Sundays are a time that our church comes together for corporate worship, that is, as a body of believers, we unite to worship our creator God together. I must make a quick distinction about corporate worship. Corporate worship does not simply mean singing, but rather refers to every element within a service because they all serve a purpose to glorify God.
The author of Psalm 85 was writing to a group of people who never thought that their nation would be defeated. However they faced the difficulty of being uprooted from their homes, farms and business, and eventually they were taken into exile. Tragedy transformed their world while they lived in despair. During these horrific events their hope was crushed.
Our Pastor writes most of the blog posts we publish, however, occasionally some of our other church leadership (some staff, some volunteer) who also contribute to the New Life blog.
