The Heart of Worship: A Worship-full Church: What We Do and Why. Psalm 122:1. Any discussion of worship must include the topic of praise. Praise is so much a part of worship that to praise God means to worship him. We often use the terms interchangeably. People instinctively praise whatever they enjoy. The Psalmist knew that worship was to be the spontaneous overflow of enjoyment.

The Heart of Worship Series: To Martha, worried and fussing over many pressing things, our Lord said, “…only a few things are necessary, really only one.” Luke 10:41. Worship is that one essential thing. Many of us are like Martha, distracted and too busy to sit at the Savior’s feet. The hectic pace of life only elevates the importance of active deliberate worship. In this sermon series, The Heart of Worship, Pastor Barry carefully and clearly sets forth the principles of worship – what it is, why it is so important, and how to do it in a way that is pleasing to the Lord. Blessing flow from authentic worship, for it is only in worshipping our Lord Jesus that we can both plumb the depths and explore the heights of the abundant life our Lord makes possible.
