April 14 Bible Study:Planned for Godís Pleasure

Lesson taught by Rev. Porter

Points to Ponder

Why were you created?††††††††† To please God

God has emotions.

Give some examples of how God shows His motions:††God grieves, gets jealous and angry, and feels compassion, pity, sorrow, and sympathy as well as happiness, gladness, and satisfaction.God loves, delights, gets pleasure, rejoices, enjoys, and even laughs

I.Bringing pleasure to God is called worship

††††††††††† 1.Anything you do that brings pleasure to God is an act of

†††††††††††††††† worship.

††††††††††† 2.We have an inbuilt need to connect to God.It is as natural as

†††††††††††††††† eating or breathing.

II. Worship is far more than music

1.††††† Which part of the church service is an act of worship?

Every part Ė praying, Scripture reading, singing, listening to a sermon, taking notes, giving an offering, baptism, communion, and even greeting other worshipers.

††††††††††† 2. It is the words that make a song sacred, not the tune.

III. Worship is not for your benefit

1.††††† When we worship our goal is to bring pleasure to God, not ourselves

2.††††† If you have ever said, ďI didnít get anything out of worshipĒ, you worshipped for the wrong reason.Worship isnít for you.It is for God.

3.††††† Godís heart is not touched by tradition in worship, but by passion and commitment.

IV. Worship is not a part of your life; it is your life.

††††††††††† 1.Worship is not just for church serviced; it is a lifestyle.

††††††††††† 2.Every activity can be transformed into an act of worship

†††††††††††††††† when you do it for the

†††† praise, glory, and please of God.

3.The secret to a lifestyle of worship is doing everything as if†

†††† you were doing it for†Jesus.
