Dangerous Worship (sermon overview)

April 21, 2009 at 11:00 am (Uncategorized)

Jesus has not called us to safely worship Him, He has called to a worship that will dangerous invade every relationship and aspect of our life.

Everybody is worshiping something.  It is the way we are wired, and it isn’t just for the ‘spiritual’.

Worship is more than a style of music.  ‘Nuff said.

Worship is more than a time and place.  Just check Jesus’ convo with the Woman at the Well. (John 4)

Worship doesn’t start and stop.  AW Tozer, “If you can not worship God seven days a week, you do not worship Him one day a week.” (DANG!!)

Romans 11:36-12:1- We hold someone/thing in a place of glory and worship them/it by offering sacrifices.

The opposite of worship is not atheism, but idolatry, the worship of something else other than God.

So what idols from our culture tempt you to turn aside from worshiping God?  Style and looking good?  Sex?  Hobbies?  Recreation? Sports?

You need to Worship through Jesus, Worship Like Jesus, and Just plain Worship Jesus.

Why don’t we?  Far too often we believe that a life of worship, and our joy, are in conflict with one another.  But the truth is that only through a life of worship to Jesus and through Jesus can we find true satisfaction.  All other objects of our worship are takers, not givers.

**Note: I borrowed some outline and organization from Mark Dricoll‘s book, Vintage Jesus**

So, anything you would add or subtract or comment on?

    Love the Tozer quote. I think I used that in a lesson a few weeks back. He has some great material. Keep up the good work man. Keep challenging us. We (I) need it.
