Title: House of Worship

House of Worship
  • Offerings fit for Heavens King

1 Peter 2 4-5
  • As you come to him, the living Stone -
    rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to
    him - you also, like living stones, are being
    built into a spiritual house to be a holy
    priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices
    acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

Every Church Needs...
  • A Theology
  • A Model
  • A Practice

Worship is NOT
  • Meetings
  • We meet to worship but worship is expressed in
    the whole of our lives

Worship is NOT
  • Music
  • Music had its place in worship (as in both OT
    and NT) but is not equated with worship. It is
    perfectly possible to worship without music

Worship is NOT
  • Me
  • I am not the primary focus God is. Worship is
    not about me, but about him. I worship him.
    Therefore, it is what pleases him, not what
    pleases me that matters.

spur one another on
  • Hebrews 1024-25
  • Let us consider how we may spur one another on
    toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up
    meeting together, as some are in the habit of
    doing, but let us encourage one another - and all
    the more as you see the Day approaching

built together
  • Ephesians 220-22
  • built on the foundation of the apostles and
    prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief
    cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined
    together and rises to become a holy temple in the
    Lord. And in him you too are being built together
    to become a dwelling in which God lives by his

  • " The purpose of Christian gatherings is the
    edification or building up of the body of Christ.
    We minister to one another as we teach and exhort
    one another on the basis of His word, using the
    gifts that the Spirit has given us, in the way
    that Scripture directs. Edification is to be our
    concern even when we sing or pray to God in the
    congregation. ..

  • . All this is not purely human activity,
    however, for God is at work in the midst of His
    people as they minister in this way. Edification
    is first and foremost the responsibility of
    Christ as the 'head', but He achieves His purpose
    as the various members of the body are motivated
    and equipped by Him to play their part. We meet
    together to draw on the resources of Christ and
    to take part in the edification of His church.
  • D Peterson (Engaging with God)

1 Peter 2 4-5
  • Firstly, we celebrate the once and for all
    sacrifice of Christ for our redemption,
    recognising that it is through him that we are
    able to come.
  • Secondly, we offer spiritual sacrifices of the
    kind which are acceptable to God.

What are these acceptable spiritual sacrifices?
Jesus our example
  • Ephesians 5 2
  • Live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and
    gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and
    sacrifice to God.

We present our bodies for his service
  • Romans 12 1-2
  • Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of
    Gods mercy, to offer your bodies as living
    sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God - which is
    your spiritual worship. Do not conform any
    longer to the pattern of this world, but be
    transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then
    you will be able to test and approve what Gods
    will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Vocalised praise, worship and thanksgiving
  • Hebrews 13 15
  • Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually
    offer to God a sacrifice of praise - the fruit
    of lips that confess his name.
