Summer Bods Series Pt. 3: Heart of Worship

Pastor Nate Brosher

Jun 23, 2024

1 Chronicles 16:23-34 ESV

23 Sing to the LORD, all the earth! Tell of his salvation from day to day. 24 Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples! 25 For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and he is to be feared above all gods. 26 For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols, but the LORD made the heavens. 27 Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his place. 28 Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength! 29 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering and come before him! Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness; 30 tremble before him, all the earth; yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved. 31 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, "The LORD reigns!" 32 Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it! 33 Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth. 34 Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!

 

1. A Healthy Heart

lēḇāḇ – Soul, mind, conscience, knowledge, thinking, reflection, memory as seat of emotions.

 

■ What habits have we developed?

 

Psalm 86:11-13 NLT

Teach me your ways, O LORD, that I may live according to your truth! Grant me purity of heart, so that I may honor you. 12 With all my heart I will praise you, O Lord my God. I will give glory to your name forever, 13 for your love for me is very great. You have rescued me from the depths of death.

 

■ Our heart needs to be evaluated.

 

Isaiah 29:13 NLT

And so the Lord says, "These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.

 

  • A sign of a healthy heart is defined by how we worship.

  • Is our heart of worship designed by man or by God?

  • Proskyneō – Complete submission, obedience and reverence.  

 

2. Pledging our Allegiance to the Lamb and not the World.

 

Hebrews 13:15 NLT

Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name.

 

John 4:23-24 NLT

But the time is coming--indeed it's here now--when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. 24 For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth."

 

■ It’s time that we come back to a heart of Worship.
