Citizens, as we prepare to build the community, let's share with the people that they are EQUIPPED TO WORSHIP GOD in Truth and Love, because He Made Us, because There Is No Other, and because He's Already Given Us The Victory! WE ARE EQUIPPED TO WORSHIP!
John 4:23-24 MSG
Worship Him in Truth
“It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.”
Colossians 3:12-14 MSG
Worship Him in Love
So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.
Psalm 95:6-7 MSG
Worship Him because He Made Us
So come, let us worship: bow before him, on your knees before God , who made us! Oh yes, he’s our God, and we’re the people he pastures, the flock he feeds.
Exodus 34:14 NLT
Worship No Other God, for The Lord is A jealous God
You must worship no other gods, for the Lord , whose very name is Jealous, is a God who is jealous about his relationship with you.
Exodus 15:2-3 NLT
Worship Him because He's given you the Victory!
The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. This is my God, and I will praise him— my father’s God, and I will exalt him! The Lord is a warrior; Yahweh is his name!
