On Earth As It Is In Heaven

Posted by ccnh on 29th April 2011

Sunday February 27, 2011

The pictures of worship in heaven should thrill us. What’s happening with every glimpse into the heavenly? How does our practice here on earth reflect that?

Sacrificial worship is an earthly reflection of the worship going on continuously in heaven.

Orthodoxy to Orthopraxy

Posted by ccnh on 29th April 2011

Sunday February 20, 2011

Paul spends what amounts to eleven chapters reviewing what we believe. Then he uses the word ‘therefore’ to change gears and he begins talking about how we should live. What we believe is the wellspring of how we act.

Nearly a review of the apathy studies from January—this will be a call to account for our actions in light of our professions. Sacrificial worship walks out of this room when we say ‘Amen’… and into the rest of our week.

Turn to Romans 12.

Firstfruits Versus Leftovers

Posted by ccnh on 29th April 2011

Sunday February 13, 2011

David prepares to build an altar to the Lord (the season in his life from which this springs is worthy of consideration) and make sacrifices. Everything he needs is offered to him—free of charge. David declares that he cannot make a ‘sacrifice to the Lord that costs him nothing.’

How much of our spiritual lives and pursuits, offerings and service, amount to leftovers? I have a little money left over; a little time available; a little energy to expend… Sacrificial worship costs.

Join us in 2 Samuel 24.

Faith Versus Sight

Posted by ccnh on 29th April 2011

The Genesis account tells us that Cain was a worker of the soil and Abel kept flocks. Then both brothers bring an offering to the Lord. God “looked with favor on Abel and his offering, BUT on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor.” Why? What was the difference?

How much of our worship attempts are sight driven rather than faith fed? Worship that is sacrificial springs from faith.

Join us in Genesis 4 for this study.
