Covenant Worship (Psalm 95:1-11)

Pastor Mark Winder, February 22, 2015
Part of the What Is a Presbyterian? series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

If God comes down to our level by way of covenant, then how do we ascend to his level? In the same way. In this next installment in the series entitles "What Is a Presbyterian?" we look at principles of worship from Psalm 95. Worship is not a collection of our best ideas on marketing or outreach, but approaching our Great King in the way in which he has directed.

Psalm 95

95:1 Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
For the Lord is a great God,
and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth;
the heights of the mountains are his also.
The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands formed the dry land.

Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!
For he is our God,
and we are the people of his pasture,
and the sheep of his hand.
Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah,
as on the day at Massah in the wilderness,
when your fathers put me to the test
and put me to the proof, though they had seen my work.
10 For forty years I loathed that generation
and said, “They are a people who go astray in their heart,
and they have not known my ways.”
11 Therefore I swore in my wrath,
“They shall not enter my rest.” (ESV)
