WORSHIP IN RESPONSE

Worship As a Way of Life #8

 

I was in the crowd on a day in the late 1960’s when Mickey Mantle hit two home runs in Yankee Stadium. The crowd was ecstatic, it roared with approval. “The Mic” had done it again.

I was not in the crowd when Jesus entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. According to Matthew 21:8-9 these crowds were also, at least outwardly, ecstatic! And well they should have been. Jesus was publicly presenting himself as their Messiah in fulfillment of Zechariah 9:9. 

There were different responses to Jesus’ arrival on that day. The true disciples responded to Jesus with sincere faith and admiration. Also, some who had seen His miracles were at least praising him for the works they had seen. There were also those who were probably caught up in the excitement of it all, and joined in!

 And there were those who responded with unbelief and rejection. Luke 19:37-40, John 11:57

The arrival of Jesus on Palm Sunday demanded a response.

Every worship service, every presentation of God’s Word, every passage of Scripture that you read demands a response.

Although we could go on and talk about some other aspects of worship, such as prayer and fellowship, I am going to conclude the series with one more aspect of worship.  I have called it Worship in Response.

 

After you have worshipped in song and prayer, and after you have worshipped by reading God’s Word, it is time for you to respond to what God has shown you during the Worship Service.  It is an act of true worship to submit to whatever God wants of you.  It is time to say “yes” to God’s invitation.

 

Whether you are a Christian or not, God has an invitation for you!  The invitation is summed up in one word – COME! That was the message Jesus had on Palm Sunday. He presented himself as the fulfillment of Zechariah 9:9, as the Messiah. They were to come to Him and believe on Him!

 

COME TO REDEMPTION – Revelation 22:17, Isaiah 53:5-6, Romans 5:6-8, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, 2 Corinthians 5:17

To accept Jesus as one’s Savior and Lord is to accept the most important invitation of all. John 3:16-18

COME TO REPENTANCE - Isaiah 1:16-18, 1 John 1:7-10

We who are Christians will still have issues with sin until we see Jesus face to face. Therefore, after some messages, our best response should be to confess and forsake sin in our lives.

COME TO REST - Matthew 11:28-30

Sometimes we are heavy-hearted because of the problems of life. We must respond by coming to Jesus for rest by taking on His yoke.

COME TO RESPONSIBILITY – Luke 9:23, 1 John 2:6, Matthew 28:19-20, Luke 14:26-27, Mark 1:17

After salvation, we are responsible to follow Jesus as a disciple. The first step of obedience for a new is “Believer’s Baptism”. As God reveals our responsibilities in His Word, we are to carry them out as obedient disciples.

COME TO RESOURCES – Hebrews 4:14-16, John 7:37-39

As we endeavor to follow Jesus, we must come to the “Throne of Grace” to get the help we need. Also we need to submit to the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

JOHN 20:11-18 ETC. – DON’T WEEP!

 

·      People weep on major holidays, as did Mary. John 20:11-13                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

 

·      We know why Mary was weeping. Why are you weeping?

 

·      John 11:14-15 - Jesus appears to Mary, although Mary at first does not realize it.   Jesus asked her “Woman, why are you weeping?”  Notice that Jesus cares when he asks that question.  However, I believe that he is also telling Mary that there is no longer a need to weep.

 

·      My friend, Jesus cares about what is causing you sorrow and He wants you to tell him when you have sorrows.  He cares enough to listen. Hebrews 4:15-16

 

·      It is interesting that Jesus turned her weeping into joy with just one word. He spoke her name. Vs. 16

 

·      This Easter morning, the Lord Jesus wants your sorrow to be turned to joy.  It does not mean that your problems will go away.  But it does mean that we can rejoice despite our circumstances.   

 

·      So, if you are a born-again Christian, if you have trusted Christ as your Savior don’t weep!

 

 

DON’T WEEP! HE IS RISEN!

 

1 Corinthians 15:20, John 11:25-26, Romans 8:14, John 14:19

 

 

DON’T WEEP! WE ARE REDEEMED!

   

Ephesians 2:1-3, 1 Peter 1:18-19, John 1:29, Romans 5:9

 

 

DON’T WEEP! WE ARE REGENERATED!

 

John 3:3, John 3:5-8, 2 Corinthians 5:17, Romans 5:17

 

 

DON’T WEEP! HE IS RESIDING!

   

John 14:16-18, Romans 8:16, Acts 1:8, Galatians 5:22-23, Romans 8:26-27, John 15:4-5

 

 

DON’T WEEP! HE WILL RETURN!

 

John 14:1-3, 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, Titus 2:11-13,

 

 

DON’T WEEP! HE REIGNS!

  

Revelation 1:18, Revelation 22:13, Isaiah 52:7

1 CORINTHIANS 15:1-10 – RESURRECTION FOR EVERYONE

 

On Easter Sunday we remember the resurrection of Christ from the dead. Just

as the death of Jesus Christ was for everyone, so is the resurrection. In 1

Corinthians 15:1-11 we have a list of witnesses to the resurrection. I find it

striking that the resurrection of Christ was for each witness. It met a

need, having a purpose for the witness. Perhaps as we study these particular

people this morning you see yourself as having the same need as one of these

witnesses.

 

Introduction - Vss. 1-4 (Stress the Gospel message of verses 3-4.)

 

THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST WAS FOR:

 

THE DENIER - Vs. 5 – Peter, who was so adamant about his loyalty, denied

Christ three times. Matthew 26:70-74, Luke 23:54-62. When Jesus arose from the

dead, he appeared to Peter in Luke 24:52, and gave Peter special attention

in John 21. Peter, the denier, needed to know that he was forgiven and still

useful in ministry for Christ.

 

THE DESERTER - Vs. 5 - The Apostles are called "the twelve" even though

there were now eleven. They had run when Jesus was in His darkest hour. Jesus

appeared to them with a message of peace and commission. See John 20:19-23.

 

THE COMMON MAN - Vs. 6 - Here was a group of believers who hadn't

necessarily denied Christ. They were not necessarily distinguished people.

They were probably an average cross-section of people, and yet Jesus

appeared to them. This reminds me that one does not have to be special to go

to Heaven, become saved, and feel the touch of the resurrection.

 

THE UNBELIEVER - Vs. 7 - This James was half-brother to Jesus. John 7:5

tells us that His brethren didn't believe on Jesus. James was touched by the

appearance of his brother. He became a believer.

 

THE MESSENGER - Vs. 7 - Here they are referred to as the apostles. They saw

Jesus more than once. As apostles, they were sent as messengers with the

Gospel. The Lord commissioned them to go out in Matthew 28:18-20. Because

they had seen the risen Lord they were effective messengers for Him. A true

witness for Christ must see Him as risen, or he has no message.

 

THE PERSECUTOR - Vss. 8-11 - Not only did Paul not believe in Jesus, but he

persecuted Jesus' followers. See Acts 8:1 and 9:1-2. The risen Jesus

appeared to Paul on the Damascus road (Acts 9).

 

Even those who persecute Jesus and His followers can be saved!
