Pursuing Personal Integrity

David desired to see holiness restored among God’s people, and so he decided to start it by focusing on himself. If we long to see revival, we must pursue our own personal integrity first. Psalm 101 101 I will sing of steadfast love and justice; to you, O Lord, I will make music. 2 I will ponder the way that is blameless. Oh when will you come to me? I will walk with integrity of heart within my house; 3 I will not set before my eyes anything that is worthless.…

Worship Is a Lifestyle

David had experienced God’s deliverance repeatedly during his life, and so have we. Such a constant help deserves more than an occasional offering. Psalm 34 34:1 I will bless the LORD at all times;     his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2 My soul makes its boast in the LORD;     let the humble hear and be glad. 3 Oh, magnify the LORD with me,     and let us exalt his name together! 4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me     and delivered me from…

If We Would Just Listen to God

As we rejoice in who God is and remember what He has done, it should often call us to repent of the sins we have committed. Many of our personal struggles could be avoided if we would just listen to God. Psalm 81 81 Sing aloud to God our strength; shout for joy to the God of Jacob! 2 Raise a song; sound the tambourine, the sweet lyre with the harp. 3 Blow the trumpet at the new moon, at the full moon, on our feast…

The Greatest Is the Nearest

While God’s transcendence is amazing, His immanence is astonishing. The most surprising thing about our exalted God is how close He comes to ones like us. The transcendence of God means that He greatly surpasses our human worth and experience. The immanence of God means that he is intimately close to us. Psalm 113 113 Praise the Lord! Praise, O servants of the Lord,     praise the name of the Lord! 2 Blessed be the name of the Lord     from this time forth…

When Traditions Override Truth

The religious leaders valued their preferential traditions over God’s doctrinal truth.  As followers of Jesus, we must ensure that we hold the Word of God as superior to the traditions of man. Mark 7:1-13 7 Now when the Pharisees gathered to him, with some of the scribes who had come from Jerusalem, 2 they saw that some of his disciples ate with hands that were defiled, that is, unwashed. 3 (For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat…

Worship by the Book

After God’s Own Heart Worship by the Book (2 Samuel 6) When David returned the ark to Jerusalem, he learned how God takes worship very seriously.  We can’t worship God if we neglect the Word of God. Worship Commenced The people of God learned how to worship God from those who did not know God. We are called to obey the Word – not imitate the world. Worship Interrupted It is a dangerous thing to enter the presence of God…
