This weekend at the Celebration worship services we really rocked the house. The idea this week centered around defining a bit of why and what we do in praise and worship. Psalm 84’s "Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere" was translated to challenging our church to by faith believe God is present in our services here in Redding, CA. It is not a place, but the fact of God’s people hearing His word, praying and crying out to Him that are important. It is not working up emotion, but simply expressing in a grand way what we actually believe! People in other nations worship with the risk of arrest or worse. We have a thousand other options in our culture that compete for worship: the beach, the lake, the mountains, TV…
- Let Everything That Has Breath (Matt Redman)
- Awesome is the Lord Most High (Chris Tomlin)
- That’s Why We Praise Him (Tommy Walker)
- Cry Out Your Name (Jeff Moore)
- Better Is One Day (Matt Redman)
- Indescribable (Chris Tomlin)
Well, God was present in worship services all over the world so how was your weekend of worship?
