1 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. 3 And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” 4 At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke. 5 “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.” 6 Then one of the seraphs flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.” 8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
What is worship like in Heaven?
THE PRESENCE OF GOD
Awesome… Majestic… Depth/Weight
SINGING AND PROCLAIMING
Trembling, Shaking, Smoke, DRAMA
I am not worthy, I am not clean, I am a sinner
of being made clean, whole, restored-new
SENDING and RESPONDING TO GO
Now Go as one sent by God.
Why do we Worship?
Worship vs Spiritual Development
Worship is about God
Spiritual Development is about us.
If we come to worship to
GET SOMETHING OUT OF IT… not worship
ENJOY THE MUSIC… not worship
PLEASE MAMA… not worship
MAINTAIN STABILITY… not worship
BECAUSE IT IS A TRADITION… not worship
Worship is what we do when in GOD’s presence
God who has both the means and the heart to
Love, forgive, renew, and restore you
You stand in God’s presences and say what?
I WANT… I NEED.. I LIKE… I EXPECT
VIDEO: It’s All About Me
Worship: time to confess: Lord have mercy on me a sinner
Worship: time to see, hear, feel, sense, taste God’s glory
Worship: time for us to be vulnerable, honest, weak
Worship: time to be listening, learning, healing & responding
What is our response to Worship?
Hear, Confess, Be Cleansed, and GO tell the world…
Go as one SENT by GOD to tell the nations/neighbors
