At Ground Zero this last week, we officially launched small groups! We were so excited to see so many students CHOOSE – WILLINGLY – OPTIONALLY – to join small groups on their own. There is no better place to experience true relationship and transformation than in small groups. By the way, it’s NEVER too late to join small groups at Ground Zero.
During large group, we were in week three of Truth Is. And this week, we talked about how the truth is…there is more to life.
Worship, by definition, is anything we idolize, ascribe worth to, or value the most. We can worship anything in life – our boyfriends/girlfriends, video games, sports. And when we worship things other than God, we start to live as if life is about us.
But true worship of God reminds us life is not about us; it’s about God.
We worship God with our whole lives. The way we live in obedience to him is worship of God.
However, this week, we talked specifically how God wants us to worship him through singing.
1. So we can experience God.
2. So we can express our love for God.
Psalm 66:1-5 says, “Shout with joy to God, all the earth! Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious! Say to God, ‘How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you. All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing praise to your name.’ Come and see what God has done, how awesome his works in man’s behalf!”
We recorded a message for Ground Zero this week. Here it is:
