How God Sees Worship
Sermon Study Sheet
“How God Sees Worship”
Start off Reading Psalm 95:1-7 – how do you view worship? What does worship mean to you?
Jesus said, “the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirt and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks” (John 4:23). What does it mean to worship in spirit and in truth? Why is that the type of worship the Lord seeks?
Discuss the following four ways that God sees worship:
(1) Worship must come from the heart (see Isaiah 29:13; 1 Sam.16:7; 2 Chronicles 31:21)
(2) Worship must involve more than just externals (1 Sam.15:22; 1 Peter 2:5)
(3) Worship must lead to life change (see John 14:15; Revelation 3:3)
(4) Worship must become a lifestyle (see 1 Corinthians 10:31; Romans 12:1)
Finish with a time of worship: Pray, read a Psalm, sing a hymn, focus your mind and heart on the Lord and allow Him to transform you as you worship Him in spirit and in truth.
