Worthy of Praise!

  No  one  else  can  bring  MY  praise  but  ME !

– quoted from a worship song
published by Prism Music

WHAT  IS  PRAISE?

Here’s a definition:

1. To commend; to applaud; to express approbation of personal worth or actions.

2. To extol in words or song; to magnify; to glorify on account of perfections or excellent works.

3. To express gratitude for personal favors.

4. To give honor; to commend and display the excellence of

THE NATURE OF PRAISE

Praise, according to the Scriptures, is an act of our will that flows out of an awe and reverence for our Creator.   Praise is an expression of the truth about who God is and what He has done.  Praise expresses truth about Jesus, our wonderful Savior.  We are essentially coming into agreement with the truth when we praise the Lord.  Praise gives glory to God and opens us up to a deeper union with Him.  It turns our attention off of our problems and on the nature and character of God Himself.  As we focus our minds on God and proclaim His goodness, we reflect His glory back to Him.  The results can fill you with peace and contentment ( Isaiah 26:3) and transform your outlook on life.  Our God is worthy of praise, and statements of praise are found throughout Scripture.

WHO  SHOULD  PRAISE  THE  LORD?

Angels.   “Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do His commandments, hearkening unto the voice of His word.”    Ps 103:20

The saints.  “Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness.”    Ps 30:4

The Nations.  “O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise Him, all ye people.”    Ps 117:1

The Children.  “And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them,” Yea; have ye never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise’?””    Mt 21:16

People of every station in life, young and old.  “Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth!   Young men and maidens together, old men and children!  Let them praise the name of the Lord, for His name alone is exalted; His glory is above Earth and Heaven.   Ps 148:11 – 13

All of Creation.  “Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD.  Praise ye the LORD!”    Ps 150:6

NO one is without excuse.  Praising the Lord is a command.  It is our purpose.  God created us with the capacity to recognize His majesty and supremacy, to respond to His love and mercy, and to praise Him for all that He is and for all that He has done.

REASONS TO PRAISE

Very simply, we praise God because He is worthy of our praise (1 Chron. 16:25; Rev. 5:11-14). He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the King of kings and Lord of lords. He is our Creator, Provider, Healer, Redeemer, Judge, Defender and much more.

Another foundational reason to praise God is simple obedience. The Bible says God is a “jealous” God who demands and desires our praise. “You shall have no other gods before Me,” says the first commandment (Deut. 6:7). As the psalmist said, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord” (Psalm 150:6).

As we praise God, we will discover incredible benefits for our lives.  That’s because human beings were created by God to praise Him (Isa. 43:7, Matt. 21:16).  Due to man’s original sin,  however, this relationship was disrupted.  Praising God helps restore us to that right relationship, for God actually dwells in the praises of His people (Psalm 22:3). As we draw near to the Father in praise, He draws near to us (James 4:8).

Praise is also our ultimate destiny.  When the Lord Jesus Christ returns again to earth, all creation — including prideful mankind — will recognize His glory and praise Him. (Phil. 2:9-11)

HOW  ARE  WE  TO  PRAISE  THE  LORD?

WITH UNDERSTANDING   “For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.”    Ps 47:7

WITH THE SOUL   “Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name.”    Ps 103:1

WITH THE WHOLE HEART    “I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all Thy marvellous works.”    Ps 9:1

WITH THE LIPS    “Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise Thee.”    Ps 63:3

WITH THE MOUTH    “O Lord, open Thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth Thy praise.”    Ps 51:15

WITH JOY    “My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise Thee with joyful lips.”    Ps 63:5

WITH GLADNESS    “Moreover, Hezekiah the king and the princes commanded the Levites to sing praise unto the LORD with the words of David, and of Asaph the seer.  And they sang praises with gladness, and they bowed their heads and worshipped.”     2 Chron 29:30

WITH THANKFULNESS    “Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God.”    Ps 147:7

CONTINUALLY    “By Thee have I been held up from the womb: Thou art He that took me out of my mother’s body: my praise shall be continually of thee.”    Ps 71:6

TO THE END OF LIFE    “I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.”    Ps 104:33

MORE AND MORE    “But I will hope continually, and will yet praise Thee more and more.”    Ps 71:14

Our God plans and does all things well!  Praise the Lord!

Do you know Jesus?

The decision to ask Jesus to come into your heart and life as your Lord and Savior is the best decision you could ever make!  The one true God is ready to give you forgiveness and eternal life as soon as you understand your need for Him and believe on the name of His only Son, Jesus, for your salvation.  Here’s a blog page link to help you find the answers to your questions about Jesus.  http://www.worshipsounds.wordpress.com/do-you-know-jesus/

He is Jesus!

“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and in the day of eternity. Amen.” II Peter 3:18

Prophets foretold His birth centuries before it occurred.  An angel appeared to His mother to announce the miracle of his conception.

His Father chose as His mother an unknown maiden with a heart inclined to God and ready to surrender herself to God’s will.

He left His heavenly home to come into a world that seemed to have no room for Him.

He was born in Bethlehem to fulfill prophecy of His royal birth.

And yet, He was born in the humblest of circumstances in order to identify fully with humankind and because He had no intention of becoming an earthly King.

His birth was celebrated by angels and accompanied by a phenomenal Heavenly star to proclaim His deity.

Modest working men were the first to hear of His coming, demonstrating that no wealth is necessary to know Him.

Wise men of wealth and position travelled from far away to bring gifts to Him and worship the One whose birth could be seen in the Heavens, showing that He was and is the King of Kings.

He astonished the learned scholars in the temple at a young age, demonstrating that He is the Word made flesh.

He healed sickness, demonstrating His compassion and His power over human frailty.

He raised the dead, demonstrating His power over death and the coming end of sorrow.

He multiplied the provisions of men, taking care of earthly need and demonstrating that God can take what we offer and do more with it that we could imagine.

He walked on water and calmed the storm, demonstrating His supremacy over all created things and what we call the “laws of nature.”

He taught with authority because He was the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

He taught profound truth through the simplicity of parables so that all people and even children could understand.

He wept at the sorrow of death and the rejection of God’s plan in demonstration of His incarnation.  He is Emmanuel, God with us,… in grief, in sorrow, in rejection, and in loss.

He demonstrated humility in washing the feet of His own disciples.

He foretold His own death and resurrection and the denial of one of His closest followers.

He chose God’s will for Himself and submitted to a mockery of a trial so that He could take our guilt.

He was beaten, despised, humiliated and condemned so that we could be redeemed.

He carried much more than a heavy wooden cross on His back.  He carried the weight of the sin of all mankind.

The hands that blessed and healed were nailed to a cross.

The beautiful feet that had carried the message of God’s love and mercy were pierced so that He could carry our sin to the mercy seat.

The heart that beat with more love than you or I could fathom was stilled as He gave up His life so that we could have life everlasting.

He commited His spirit to God and spoke the words of victory that echo through eternity:  “It is finished!”

“He was in the beginning with God, and with Him everything that was created was made.  In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.”

He is life, and He came to give life.  And yet, he endured death, and darkness, and Hell.

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

He did not stay in the tomb.   He was no longer there, for He had risen, just as He said.

He appeared to Mary, to his disciples, and to other followers.  He was not bound by death or by the walls of a tomb.  He is alive!

He told His followers that he must leave so that the Holy Spirit could come and inhabit the hearts of all believers.

He told them what he would be doing while they were apart.  He is preparing a place in Heaven, reigning as Sovereign Lord at the right hand of God the Father, and praying for believers.

He gave them their mission:  “Go ye, therefore, and teach all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always even unto the end of the world.”

He is with us.  He is praying for us.  He is preparing a place for us.

He is still changing lives, touching hearts, and healing hurts.

He is the Savior of the world.

He is the Redeemer whose love for mankind could not be crucified.

He is the Lord of All.

He is the beginning and the end.

He is the Bridegroom.

He is the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world.

He is the Living Water, bringing unquenchable life.

He is the King of glory, the hope of mankind, and the joy of man’s desiring.

He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

He is Jesus!

Top Twelve Music and Worship Ministry Thankfulness List

Thankfulness blossoms best when watered daily.

Thankfulness isn’t only for November.  We can be thankful for all the ways that we are blessed all year long!

“Sing to the Lord with Thanksgiving; make melody to our God upon the lyre!
He covers the heavens with clouds,
He prepares rain for the earth,
He makes grass grow upon the hills.
He gives to the beasts their food,
and to the young ravens which cry.
His delight is not in the strength of the horse,
nor His pleasure in the legs of a man:
But the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him,
in those who hope in His steadfast love.”

Psalm 147: 7 -11

TOP  TEN  year round Thankfulness list
for those in positions of Music Ministry leadership (and for those who support worship ministry through participation in worship and through encouragement):

(When we remember to be thankful, we count our blessings and multiply our praise!)

1.   A God of Love and Mercy
He is the One who has chosen to give His only Son so that we may know Him, have abundant life on earth, and live with Him eternally in Heaven.  He gives us a reason to sing, to play, and to praise Him.

2.   The gift of Music
Our creator God chose the beautiful gift of music to allow us to express the depths of feeling that words alone could never capture.   Through this, He gives us a glimpse of His creative work in our lives.   How beautiful Heaven must be!

3.  The body of Christ…His people!
Those who love, who serve, who give, who bless, who mourn with hope, who reach out to one another, who offer compassion, who forgive one another, who go, who pray, who worship, who weep with those in sorrow, who find joy, who seek the Lord, who long for righteousness, who rejoice in the truth, who overwhelm us with the beauty of their hearts…God’s people!

4.  The call to serve
We are still amazed to be broken vessels who seek to help other broken vessels worship our Creator and the Lover of our souls.

5.  Faithful volunteers in Music and Worship Ministry
We are not called to be Soloist in Chief.  We cannot do this alone.  We are called to lead others, to help them find the song of their praise.  From our Choir and Praise Team members to our Church Orchestra and Rhythm Section, to our (too often) unsung heroes in the Technical and Media booth, to those who work with Children, Youth and pre-schoolers in their Worship ministries. to those who work with interpretive arts such as banner-making, signing, or drama, every one of our Music and Worship Ministry volunteers is a blessing and a valuable member of the team!  Only with these faithful hearts joining the song can we offer to God the gift of harmony in praise.

6.  Accompanists
When years of training, a passion for excellence, a servant’s heart, and a director’s dream are all found in one person, we call that person an accompanist or instrumentalist.  Though the instruments they play may vary, their role is vital and supportive, enhancing every message in song.  These are the folks who have already been rehearsing and are prepared to play and accompany at a time when everyone else is just beginning to learn the song.

7.  Encouragers
Though none of us depend upon accolades or actively seek them, an encouraging word lifts our spirits.   Most touching to our hearts is to know that a message in song has touched the heart of someone else.

8.  The songs
Choosing a favorite song would be like choosing which drop of water fell first into the sea.   There are so many.  We have the privelege of living with words and music of profound beauty and a depth of spiritual insight.   Our lives are constantly impacted by messages of hope, grace, love, mercy, power, and eternity….

9.  New mercies every day, grace in infinite abundance to cover all of our short-comings and sin, and God’s help to gain victory in our journey to become more like Jesus
We need closeness in our relationship with God, a need for closeness that is made all the more apparent by anything that reminds us of our own humanity.   We need Jesus.  We need cleansing, forgiveness, the heart of a worshipper, the soul of a seeker, and a willingness to lay down our burdens before Him and carry His cross.

10.  Surrender and vulnerability
Only through our willingness to place our talents in God’s hands and recognize that they are all His gifts to be used for His glory can we ever truly minister.  For Worship Leaders, Choir Directors, Ministers of Music and Worship, Choir members, Orchestra members, Praise Teams, Praise bands, rhythm sections, drama and movement teams, technical teams, accompanists, ….. for all who lead in worship in any way…..surrender is our highest goal.

11.  A worshipping congregation
God inhabits the praises of His people!  The scriptures never say that God only inhabits the praises of those who are a part of the Music and Worship leadership team.  It is important that all of our hearts join together in worship.  The holy moments that take place when God meets us where we are, at the point of our need, and is enthroned on our praise… words fail…

12.  A supportive and worshipping Pastor and Ministerial Staff
What a joy it is to serve with others who love the Lord and have a passion to seek Him and to worship Him.

“Praise the Lord! O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever.” Psalm 106:1

“Praise the Lord!
For it is good to sing praises to our God;
for He is gracious, and a song of praise is seemly.
The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
He gathers the outcasts of Israel.
He heals the broken-hearted
and binds up their wounds.
He determines the number of the stars,
He gives to all of them their names.
Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;
His understanding is beyond measure.”

Psalm 147: 1 – 5

Worship ABC’s

“Worship is wonder, love, and praise. Not only does it cause us to contemplate and appreciate our holy God, but it gives us vitality, vigor, and a desire to obey Him.” Franklin Graham
We come together to give ourselves wholly to Him in worship.  We give honor, praise, glory, and blessing to Him.   We extend His grace to others and give the sweet sacrifice of selflessness.  We offer to Him all that we are, giving back what He has given to us in a joyous offering to the Giver of all good gifts.  In everything we do, we seek to bring Him glory.  We worship Him!
Here are the ABCs of Worship:

Adore Him!

Bless the name of the Lord!

Come into His presence with thanksgiving.

Delight in Him!

Embrace the cross of daily surrender.

Forgive.

Give Him the glory due His name.

He alone is worthy!

Incline your heart to Him.

Just listen for His voice.

Know that the Lord is God.

Magnify the Lord!

New every morning are His mercies.

Offer all that you are.

Praise Him!

Quietly wait for Him.

Rejoice in the Lord always!

Sing Praise to the Lord!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart.

Unsearchable are His judgements.

Victory is His!

Worship the Lord in the beauty of His holiness.

eXalt the name of the Lord!

Yield your heart to Him.

Zealous for God…

Choir Appreciation Sunday

Did you know that January 8th, 2012, was designated as the first National Choir Appreciation Sunday?   This was news to us, but we think it’s great!  Our Adult Choir members at every church where Travis has served have always been incredibly faithful and committed to the ministry of choral praise and to their leadership role in worship.   They’ve been people with servant’s hearts, always involved in a multitude of ministries within the church body in addition to their music ministry involvement.  The people that we have known, loved, and worked with as a part of ALL of the music ministry groups (choirs, orchestras, rhythm sections, tech teams, handbell groups, drama and movement teams, set design & construction helpers, costuming helpers, banner ministry) have never sought accolades or recognition.  They are just people who love the Lord and want to give him glory by sharing their gifts of singing and/or playing or technical expertise.   Our wonderful Adult Choir and Orchestra at First Baptist Church of Duluth, Georgia, love to share their gifts through praise.   Here, they are shown sharing Joseph M. Martin’s beautiful Christmas musical, “Winter’s Grace,” in 2010.

It takes more than a talent to participate faithfully in these ministries!  It takes someone who not only has the ability but also has the love or passion for this area of ministry and is willing to guard their availability in order to be a faithful participant.  These wonderful folks add so much life and spirit to all that they do, in addition to their excellence in prepartion for sharing their gifts.   Whether your church has a special recognitions Sunday set aside or not, it’s ALWAYS good to let these people know how much you appreciate them!  So, share a little love with the people who bless your life this week!   Then, let your music/tech/drama/decorating committee & special production support (costumes, sets, publicity) people know that you appreciate their efforts when you attend the Christmas production and special programs this year.   Tell your child’s Sunday School or Choir or Missions teacher (as well as your own!) how much you appreciate them.  Spread the love!  Tell folks you’re glad to see them!   Let’s appreciate the gift of salvation in Christ every moment of every day and appreciate the people who are committed to making our church the best that it can be every time we have the opportunity!  A special day is great, but appreciating these fine people one day of the year would be like only complimenting and saying ‘I love you’ to your spouse once a year…say, on Valentines Day.  Not a good idea, right?   You can help to continually encourage and build up the body of Christ, spurring one another on to good works!

First Baptist Church Duluth Adult Choir, Youth (SWAT) Choir & teams, Golden Notes, Handbell ringers, Orchestra, Praise Teams, Tech Team, Rhythm Section, group accompanists, Drama Team, Decorating Committee, and all who will help with production tasks, WE APPRECIATE YOU!   We think you are the best and love you all!   Each of you contributes so much!  You are valued, loved, appreciated, & treasured!   As you use your God-given gifts, you are a BLESSING!

Here’s a link to the facebook page about this event:  http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/National-Choir-Appreciation-Sunday/250302075020204?sk=info

Blessings and melody, love and joy to you all!
