 Giving God praise!

Isn't God good!
Can we not be the most blessed people on the face of the earth?
Just the mere fact that we are all God's children, those of us who have been given that amazing title.

Been having a little discussion with our beloved webmaster Greg on various scriptures in the book of John. Personally it is my favorite book of the bible. The past few days have been a time of awe and wonder, a stirring of spirit, that vauge sense of God's presence and a build up of worship.

I think I just needed to vent somewhere this inspiration. Perhaps to see if this joy is prevalant amongst us or maybe just latent and in need of encouargement.

Much of our discussion is on the vast and endless themes of our faith and I praise God for all that contribute, for the sharing of wisdom and knowledge, for the brotherhood and sisterhood of the brethren.

Today I would like to interject a different 'topic'.

"Giving God praise!"

What are your favorite scriptures in regards to worship, that stir a sense of wonder, awe and praise to the Lord?
And why?

Of the many, two that continually cause me to stop and ponder are:

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God." John 1:1,2

"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14

With apologies to my friend, this is what I had shared with him earlier.
"I think John 1 and then a jump to 14 prove the validation of inspiration, that these are the words of God, what man could ever have come up with "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,...." That is just mind blowing, even now, even after reading it a thousand times. It is so profound, so amazing!"

Praising God this day.
Mike

 Re: Giving God praise!

Hi crsschk
Don't think you going to get much of 'debate' on this one, just lots of 'Amens'.
One of my favourites is this

"thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and Him only shalt thou serve"

I consider the wonder of "thou". Who? this rebel and renegade? this 'chief of sinners'? Something from deep within says 'Yes. thou art the man' and something within cries 'Amen'.

If He says 'thou shalt' then I can say 'I will'.

The ancient commands have become promises.

Didn't know where to 'slice' it,
Since this is in the 'Scriptual Debates' section, maybe I should have put it "Which is [i][b]the[/b][/i] best verse(s)" :-D

Excellent reply by the way!

I am wondering if you got that from Charles Price's sermon series on: "Experiencing The Fulness Of God"

here are the links to those files anyhow:
-[url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=1830]Experiencing The Fulness Of God - Part 1[/url]
-[url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=1860]Experiencing The Fulness Of God - Part 2[/url]
-[url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=1861]Experiencing The Fulness Of God - Part 3[/url]
-[url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=1874]Experiencing The Fulness Of God - Part 4[/url]

*I just remember him talking about the ten commandments and giving a story of this man that saw them everyday in his church, but one day I assume when he was born again, and instead of seeing 'thou shalt not', 'thou shalt not', 'thou shalt not...' he saw.. 'thou shall not', 'thou shall not', 'thou shall not...' What a difference in Christ the old testament and law become.

 Re:

I've not heard the Charles Price sermons. BTW here's something that perhaps not everyone will appreciate in the same way but I have thought of mentioning to you before. I suppose in the course of a year I get to listen to less than 10 sermons; most weekends I am preaching in churches other than the one I call 'home'. Even when I am 'home' I often preach there too. This is probably true for many preachers; we hardly ever get the opportunity to listen to other preachers.
Enter.. sermonindex. To listen to the insights and passion of other men is a tremendous challenge and encouragement. Sometimes you find yourself saying things you have never heard before and then to hear the same truths in an audio file is a wonderful encouragement. I am looking forward to making regular sermon-listening a regular part of my schedule. Iron sharpens iron and it is not good for man (any man) to be alone. Thanks again for sermonindex.
Here's another cause for praise. I shall be away from my desk over the weekend so you can celebrate for me; tomorrow (25th) is the 45th anniversary of my conversion. Ebenezer. Praise His Name.

 Re: Giving God praise!

Here's one that I was reading recently that caused me to stop and just praise the Lord.

Zephaniah 3:17 [i]The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.[/i]

When I think of Jesus rejoicing over me with singing and that we as a body bring rest to His heart, I am left in total awe. I can't think of anything I would rather see than my Savior rejoicing.


In Christ,

Ron

That is praise worthy!

God Bless you Ron.

I had stumbled across that verse about a year ago and had the same reaction, felt like I had just unearthed some golden nugget.
I can still remember telling my wife "He will be singing over [b]us![/b]" What an incredible thought!

Awesome brother this is a cause to celebrate, God is being glorified through your ministry and I thank God for that!

I have just gotten 6 new messages up by Ron Bailey, give them a listen they are from a conference from 1994 on Isaiah. I am sure Ron could fill in the details if necessary, it sure seems intresting and worth a listen:
-[url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=2967]Isaiah (part 1) - Introduction[/url]
-[url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=2968]Isaiah (part 2) - That they may serve Me[/url]
-[url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=2969]Isaiah (part 3) - Asset or Liability?[/url]
-[url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=2970]Isaiah (part 4) - Behold, My Servant[/url]
-[url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=2971]Isaiah (part 5) - Sin-Offering[/url]
-[url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=2972]Isaiah (part 6) - The character of the servant[/url]

 Re: philologos / Ebenezer

philologos:

Quote:
Ebenezer



That had been sitting in the back of mind for awhile.."Why did he put that there?"
Last night I felt 'led' if you will, to 1 Samuel 7, which I thought was an odd place, just the scrambling of my brain..till I got to verse 12.
Ahh...

That may not mean much to anybody else, but to this layman it did.
Thanks
