A Short Catechism on the Tabernacle of David • Bob Johnson Davidic worship is not for only one culture or ethnic group - Jesus has redeemed us from "every tribe and language and people and nation” to be a kingdom of priests to serve Him and minister to Him in worship.
Dance Seen Through "Old" Reading Glasses • Steve Griffing When we understand that there exists a universal language of Biblical worship that transcends testamental boundaries, unifying voice, instrument, and body into one glorious expression, our worship is infused with fresh vitality and spontaneity. Then our worship reflects more completely the unspeakable joy that we express in response to God’s redemptive grace.
Evangelism: Worship on Tour • Steve Griffing Worship is the conduit through which evangelism is empowered. Without amazing and perplexing worship, our evangelism is reduced to mere rhetoric, lost in the sea of contemporary religious discourse. Compelling worship confirms the message as it transforms the messengers.
What Makes Christian Worship Different? • Steve Griffing It is as inescapable as it is uncomfortable for us to proclaim that worshiping Jesus as Divine Redeemer has no equivalent in human experience. Our task then is to make the distinction clear, first in our own minds, and then in the minds of others.
Worship and Rebuilding • William Mikler It is in worship that lives are quickened and that the desire to obey is sharpened. It is in worship that the motivations of the will are purified and the thoughts of the mind are clarified. It is in worship that the worshipper of God is empowered to serve God in the world around him.
Prophetic Dimensions in Worship • Larry Dempsey When we obey God's prophetic instructions (worshiping in Spirit and Truth), we bring ourselves into alignment with the Will of God for worship in the Church. Our praise and worship then takes on a prophetic dimension and in this prophetic atmosphere we experience the awesome majesty and power of His very Presence.
The Sacrifice of Praise: The Vow of the Worshiper • Barry Griffing Because praise and worship is to be a vow in our lives to the Father, the fundamental basis for such praise is not emotion but the decisiveness of our will; biblical praise is offered because of the decision to do so; not because we are impelled or compelled by the Holy Spirit to do so.
