PRAISE HIM IN HIS HOUSE
As the church gathers together, His House becomes a place where we can bring our hearts, voice, music, and words to sing and give praises to our Heavenly Father. The strength of corporate worship in community is the encouragement it brings to one another in our different seasons of life.
Our demonstrations of freedom in worship allows others to feel free to worship, creating an atmosphere of sincerity where people can be real with God as they encounter Him through praise and worship. It lifts those whose voices have been silenced by weariness and puts a new song in their mouths.
There is an undeniable sense of JOY when the church gathers to worship-a joy not dependent on circumstance, but rather a characteristic of being renewed by the Holy Spirit.
Music enriches our worship. There are anthems sung around the world declaring the greatness of God. Take a look at the praise song beginning in 1 Chronicles 16:8. Read it aloud. Give Him praise for all He has planned to do!
“Give praise to the Lord, proclaim His name, make known among the nations what He has done. Sing to Him, sing praise to Him, tell of all His wonderful acts. Glory in His holy name. Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!” I Chronicles 16:8-10 (NIV)
