Worship


I wonder what you think worship is! Is your view of worship too small? Worship is giving God alone (Psalm 19:2), the glory due His name in the beauty of His holiness (1 Chronicles 16:29), with reverence. “Yes, ascribe to the Lord! The glory due his name! Bring an offering and come before him; Worship the Lord when clothed with holiness!”

Worship is where through the use of the mind and the senses, honour and respect are directed towards God, “in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23-24)! Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshippers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.’

Come and discover more about what worship of God is, why God is to be worshipped and how the Christian should worship God!

Jesus Christ and Atonement Today Part 2

18 Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry for ever but delight to show mercy. 19 You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea. 20 You will be faithful to Jacob, and show love to Abraham, as you pledged on oath to our ancestors in days long ago. (Micah 7:18-20)

21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood – to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished 26 – he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus. (Romans 3:21-26)

G’day! Today we continue to look together at Jesus Christ, the Day of Atonement of Leviticus and the Atonement that He alone offers. We continue this by to looking together at 3 great Bible words: propitiation, redemption and substitution.

Together we explore questions such as: What do propitiation, redemption and substitution mean? What do propitiation, redemption and substitution have to do with Jesus Christ and Atonement today? With what one word can we sum up those 3 words?

Partakers Bible Thought

31 July 2021

16 “‘Do not go about spreading slander among your people.
“‘Do not do anything that endangers your neighbor’s life. I am the LORD.
17 “‘Do not hate a fellow Israelite in your heart. Rebuke your neighbor frankly so you will not share in their guilt.
18 “‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD. (Leviticus 19:16-18)

One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?" "The most important one” answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with your entire mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'Love your neighbour as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." (Mark 12:28-31)

“Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.” (1 John 4:20)

As Christians we are commanded not to sin! It is fundamental to living the Christian life! Essentially, "sin" is a failure to love God as well as a failure to love other people. We break God’s commandment when we do not show love to Him or other people. The primary way of loving God is to love other people. Were you aware of that?

Oh it is easy to love your friends and those you actually like. It is easy to love those around you including those you don’t know. But Jesus, as ever, goes even further than that! He commands that those who declare they love Him also go and love their enemies. Jesus commanded his followers, all those who claim to be His disciples, to love those they don’t like or are ever wanting to like! Now that is a bit radical is it not?

As Christians, we should be so filled with God’s love that it acts as a magnetic attraction to God’s goodness and love. What kind of love is this? How is this love in evidence? How do we show others that we love God? Let’s discover together more about the Christian and love, by listening to the podcast!
