Title: Is%20Life%20Worship?


1
Is Life Worship?
  • John 423-24
  • July 18 - AM

2
Introduction
  • God requires us to assemble and worship Hebrews
    1025
  • God also requires us to live a godly life Titus
    211-12 - 11For the grace of God that brings
    salvation has appeared to all men, 12teaching us
    that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we
    should live soberly, righteously, and godly in
    the present age,

3
Introduction
  • There is a teaching of some that all of life is
    worship / service to God.
  • Romans 121 - I beseech you therefore, brethren,
    by the mercies of God, that you present your
    bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to
    God, which is your reasonable service.
  • FOUR Ds OF WORSHIP - -

4
DIRECTION
John 424 - God is Spirit, and those who worship
Him must worship in spirit and truth.
  • WORSHIP
  • Action not passive
  • Participants not spectators
  • MUST
  • Worship is essential to our salvation

5
DIRECTION
John 424 - God is Spirit, and those who worship
Him must worship in spirit and truth.
  • SPIRIT
  • Our attitude must be correct
  • TRUTH
  • The Bible is our authority in worship

6
DEFINITION
  • English
  • Worth ship worthy of honor
  • Greek words 7 different words
  • Glory, glorify
  • To show reverence
  • Religious rituals, ceremony
  • To serve, to do service
  • To serve
  • To revere or honor
  • To kiss toward (most common 59 times)

7
DEPARTURE
  • When ones life is dedicated to God, whatever he
    does is worship/service. It is not a matter of
    Lord, we come before Thee now, for we are in
    Him and His Spirit is in us continually.
  • Since everything we do in life is worship, there
    are not such things as five acts of worship.

8
DEPARTURE
  • I have some problems with the idea of worship
    assemblies because all that we do is worship or
    service to God.
  • Worship isnt singing, it isnt preaching, it
    isnt the Lords Supper, it isnt praying, it
    isnt giving. It isnt even all of these things
    combined in a 60-minute period on Sundays.

9
DEPARTURE
  • In Romans 121 service means sacrifice of
    things consecrated to God
  • Some things are right in life wrong in worship
  • There is a clear distinction in life and worship
  • Romans 125 - who exchanged the truth of God for
    the lie, and worshiped and served the creature
    rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever.
    Amen.

10
DEPARTURE
  • We can go to and depart from worship Acts
    827-28
  • Men and angels worship and serve God
  • There are specific ACTS of worship
  • John 424 does not fit the teaching that all of
    life is worship

11
DANGER
  • This idea will de-emphasize worship
  • It ignores the authority principle in worship
  • It tends to make worship an attitude not an action

12
Conclusion
  • Many things are OK in life Not OK in worship
  • Do the dishes, take a shower, play with the
    children, watch TV
  • Big Mac is allowed in life not at the Lords
    Table
  • Instrumental music is allowed in life not in
    the worship to God
