Revering and Receiving Christ

Worship is often only associated with what happens within a church building, and even more strictly, only what happens while we are singing songs of worship. Certainly, worship through music is wonderful. But, there is so much more to the idea of Christian worship. In this message, we explore the deeper depths of a life rooted in worship. At its best, worship helps us not only revere the holiness of God, but to also receive the gift of his intimate and constant presence.

Most Christians believe that our lives after conversion should be different. Most of us deeply desire for our lives to look, feel and be different. We want to grow in change in ways that are glorifying to God and helpful to the growth of the Kingdom of Jesus. In the sermon series Deeper Waters, we will be looking at the spiritual practices found in the classic Christian book Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster. It is through these practices that we can become more deeply formed in the character of Christ through the power of the Spirit. God does not want us to spend our entire lives walking in the “shallow end” or splashing in the “kiddie pool.” He invites us into the Deeper Waters of knowing and experiencing him.
