“LIFT YOUR HANDS” -Mike Teel, Pastor
Focal Passage: Matthew 2:1-2
After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem 2 and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.
The next four weeks we will be looking at different postures of worship:
Next week bringing our gifts; the following week POURING OUT OUR HEARTS; the final week BOWING OUR KNEES; today LIFTING OUR HANDS.
EXPRESSION OF GRATITUDE FOR GOD'S GRACE
I just do not think you can experience the GRACE of God without showing gratitude in some form or fashion.
PAUL'S CHALLENGE TO MEN
I Timothy 2:8
WHY WOULD GOD ASK US TO RAISE OUR HANDS?
1. God LOVES It
James 4:8 (NKJV)
2. An Offering Of PRAISE
Psalms 141:1-2 (NLT)
3. A DECLARATION Of War
victory and surrender
LIVE IT OUT
True Worship begins with a genuine relationship with Christ!
1. Do you know for certain if you were to die today you would go to heaven?
2. Men, how will you lead the way in worship for your family?
3. Will you determine to worship Jesus Christ during this Christmas season?
