Worship: Life with Passion and Purpose

Worship: Life with Passion and Purpose is a comprehensive look at the role of worship in the lives of believers. In the series, Pastor Skip Heitzig looks at examples of several people in the Bible who understood what it is to worship God. These people realized that worship is not just singing, but a lifestyle. God created us to worship Him and certain qualities will be evident in your life if you are a true worshiper. As we study the lives of worshipers in Scripture, we can understand what true worship is--and use it as a template to follow in our own lives.

You Are Invited...To Worship
Psalm 95
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
For the next several weeks, we take a fresh look at worship. In every book of the Bible and in every generation, people worshiped God. Worship also seems to be one of the chief activities of heaven. What does it mean to worship, and how can worship become a way of life that is both appropriate and fulfilling?

Why Are You Here?
Matthew 21:12-17
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
When you go to a doctor's office you are typically asked, "So, what brings you here?" The answers may range from having a sore throat to something far more serious.  The same is true of coming to church.  Don't be so naive as to think everyone comes for the right reasons.  While Jesus was in the Jerusalem Temple one Passover, he encountered four different groups of folks who were there for four different reasons.  He dealt with each crowd accordingly.

Worship - True or False?
John 4:20-24
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
The world is full of worshippers. It's a God-given propensity to want to worship. At the same time it could accurately be said to many who claim to be worshippers, "You worship what you do not know" (John 4:22), but what is the worship that God desires? Does God consider all worship to be true worship? In Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan woman at the well we get insight into what is true worship and what is false.

Lift Up Your Voice - Part 1
Psalm 47
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Somehow, a large number of churchgoers have bought into the idea that "singing in church is for singers." Wrong! Singing is for believers! The question is not, "Do you have a voice?" but rather, "Do you have a song?" Singing is a part of history – spiritually, culturally and socially. It is a prominent part of a Christian's worship experience and will occupy an important place in our future. So clear your throat, arch your back (if you can), and get in practice...for eternity!

Lift Up Your Voice - Part 2
Ephesians 5:19
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Songs are everywhere. In almost every culture and country, music and singing leave their mark. Singing is also a main component of worship. Every time we gather, we spend a good portion of our time singing the truth we believe. But what makes our singing so different and unique from just a folk song or an anthem? Is the music and singing a time-filler for late-corners or merely a Christianized form of entertainment? Or, is it something much deeper and significant?

Abraham - Worship On Display
Genesis 18:1-33 & 22:1-24
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
To study about worship is one thing; to observe it is yet another. There is nothing like worshippers in Scripture to inspire our relationship to God in worship.  When we glimpse at their lives and see their worship displayed, we can understand what kind of worship is acceptable to God. Three different "worship cameos" in the life of Abraham show us what is involved in true worship.

When God Let Down the Ladder
Genesis 28:10-22
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Jacob was a fugitive running away from the trouble he created. God ran after him, showing him that what he thought was a dead-end street was actually a new beginning. It's a classic case of God lavishing His grace on an undeserving creature. The creature (Jacob) in turn properly responded by worshipping the One who ' stooped to show such love.

Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Following the plan of God for lives is the best and most exciting way to live.  It's an adventure.  But it's not without its difficulties.  In fact it can sometimes seem like a battlefield.  The problem l see is that too many of God's soldiers are beat and burned out!  How can we keep our heads above the water of adversity and conflict?  By a life of worship! Let Joshua show you how!

Worship From an Ash Heap
Job 1:6-22
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Worship is easy when life is good, when the cupboards are full, when we and everyone around us is healthy. Anyone can pull that off! It's no big deal. But songs sung in the dark nights of affliction and loss can only come from God. Is your worship conditional? Do you respond well to God only when God performs well for you? The example of Job compels us to move to a deeper level of worship - the worship of a broken heart!

A Worship That Transforms
Isaiah 6:1-8
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
What good is worship if it doesn't change us? If week after week we leave the assembly of worshipping saints exactly the same way we came in, then why do it? Of course, the primary reason we worship is simply because God is worth it. But if we've really been in contact with the living God, there ought to be the evidence of changed lives. The change will be visible in our serving Him.

The Lavish Worship of an Overflowing Heart
John 12:1-8
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
When you're really grateful to God for something he's done, how do you show it?  Do you ever really show it at all? Do you shoot up a quick "Thanks, God," or do you justify your non-response with an excuse like, "Well, God knows I'm thankful"? Are you worried about how people would react if you became "too spiritual" or "too excited" about god? Mary of Bethany is a prime example of an adoring worshipper who lavished her love on Christ.

Worship: Welcome to Your Future
Revelation 19:1-10
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
What will heaven be like? Among things it will be a place of worship. You might say that heaven will be the culmination of all our worship experiences. Seeing God face to face, having our salvation completed, knowing God has righted every wrong and is firmly in control of everything and everyone will evoke a lively response of great joy and praise. In this final study on worship we peek ahead into the worship service of the future!
