1 My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?

7 All those who see Me ridicule Me; They shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, [8] “He trusted in the Lord, let Him rescue Him; Let Him deliver Him, since He delights in Him!”

16 They pierced My hands and My feet; … [18] They divide My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots.

22 I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will praise You.

26 Those who seek Him will praise the Lord. Let your heart live forever!

31 They will come and declare His righteousness to a people yet to be born—that He has done it [and that it is finished]. [AMP]

God never separates His presence from His process.
As a worship community, we have embraced God’s permission but we have not taken the time to learn the process.

Psalm 100:1-5 - Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! [2] Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. [3] It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; [a] We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. [4] Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. [5] For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.

1. Sacrificial Worship

A key principle of worship is that it will cost you something.

Mark 13:4-5 – [4] But there were some who were indignant among themselves, and said, “Why was this fragrant oil wasted? [5] For it might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii and given to the poor.” And they criticized her sharply.

You cannot come and TRULY worship Jesus and leave unchanged. It will cost you to worship Jesus, and that cost is change.

2. Significant Form Worship

Psalm 66:1-3 (NIV) – [1] Shout for joy to God, all the earth! [2] Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious. [3] Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you.”

The importance is not the form of worship, but the object of worship.

Mark 13:6 - But Jesus said, “Let her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a beautiful thing to Me.” (NIV)

Worship recognizes the presence of Jesus. It celebrates not only what He has done and who He is, but His presence with us. You are always going to imitate the object of your affection.

Luke 10:38-42 – [38] As Jesus and the disciples continued on their way to Jerusalem, they came to a certain village where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. [39] Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. [40] But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.” [41] But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! [42] There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”

If you are so busy with activity that you cannot worship, you and your activity are the focus of your worship.
Both Mary and Martha were believers in the one true God. But, their walk was not the same. Martha knows how whereas Mary knows Him.

3. Sustaining Worship

Mark 13:9 - “Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her.”

Luke 7:36-50

We are people called to worship Christ every day of the week, to sacrifice in our worship, to make worship a significant portion of our lives, and to understand that worship sustains us.
