WORSHIP IS AN ACT OF FAITH THAT REMEMBERS, REJOICES AND RESTS
o WORSHIP OF JESUS REMEMBERS THE PAST
o WORSHIP OF JESUS REJOICES IN THE PRESENT
o WORSHIP OF JESUS RESTS IN THE FUTURE
SALVATION IS THE MEANS TO WORSHIP
SALVATION IS THE THEME OF WORSHIP
Revelation 5:9-12 And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation,  and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.”  Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands,  saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!”
WORSHIP IS NOT POSSIBLE UNLESS ONE IS BORN AGAIN BECAUSE WORSHIP IS ROOTED IN A LIVING HOPE
WORSHIP IS NOT POSSIBLE UNLESS ONE SEES PRESENT TRIALS THROUGH THE EYES OF REFINING FAITH
WORSHIP IS NOT POSSIBLE UNLESS ONE SEES JESUS AS THEIR INHERITANCE AND TREASURE
THE RESURRECTION IS THE MEANS TO SALVATION
THE RESURRECTION IS FROM SPIRITUAL DEATH AND BRINGS SPIRITUAL LIFE
THE RESURRECTION DEMONSTRATES THE POWER THAT HOLDS OUR INHERITANCE
THE RESURRECTION GUARANTEES OUR GUARDING FOR ETERNITY
FAITH THAT TRUSTS JESUS CHRIST AS THE PAST PAYMENT FOR SIN, THE CURRENT HOPE FOR SUFFERING AND THE FUTURE PROMISE OF GLORY – A FAITH THAT SEES JESUS AS THE INHERITANCE, HOPE AND TREASURE IS THE FAITH THAT LEADS TO THE OUTCOME OF SALVATION.
John 11:25-26 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,  and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
THAT’S AN INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT QUESTION THIS EASTER – DO YOU BELIEVE THIS?
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY, TRUTH AND LIFE
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT YOUR PAST SINS ONLY FIND THEIR FORGIVENESS IN A RESURRECTED JESUS?
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT YOUR PRESENT TRIALS ONLY FIND MEANING IN A RESURRECTED JESUS?
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT YOUR FUTURE INHERITANCE AND ETERNAL LIFE IS ONLY FOUND IN A RESURRECTED JESUS?
