Small group discussion guide

Discussion groups might wish to prepare their own topics, request topics from the group, use the following suggested topics, or mix and match all three.

Suggested topics:

1. Why should we include the Father and the Holy Spirit in our worship?

2. How does Trinitarian worship enrich our relationship with God?

3. Why is a proper Christ-centered focus Trinitarian?

4. How has God completed his work of salvation in the person of Jesus Christ?

5. How does our response to God come from God himself?

6. Have your prayerful laments ever been “transformed from despair to hope”?

7. What are your thoughts on how God relates to the “unbelieving” world?

8. How does “restored glory” stimulate us toward joyful and thankful worship?

A few simple guidelines for leading a discussion: 1) Encourage open discussion. 2) Ask questions relevant to the topic. 3) Listen attentively. 4) Encourage divergent views. 5) Encourage everyone to participate. 6) Summarize and paraphrase. 7) Minimize teaching and preaching.

I can remember as if it were yesterday – my first visit to this church. I must admit I was a bit apprehensive. Questions rolled through my mind. What would it be like? Would I be accepted? Would I feel comfortable?

Color Crazy

Friends, I feel compelled to alert us all to a most serious issue lurking beneath the surface of our current apparent tranquility. I refer, of course, to the issue of color. This potential crisis can perhaps be best described by examining some of my hypothetical friends, each a mostly normal individual, but within each is a certain quirk. Now each of these hypothetical friends is a Christian – seeking first God's kingdom and his righteousness, growing in grace and knowledge, but …

Introduction

“The Lamb is worthy – the Lamb who was slain. He is worthy to receive the power, and the riches, and the wisdom, and the strength, and the honor, and the glory, and the blessing.” In these beautiful words from Revelation 5:12-13 we see a powerful example of worship. These inspired words are filled with wonder as they describe the reality of Jesus Christ.

Is There Only One Right Way to Worship God?

Liturgy has become a hot topic in the church.

“Excuse me, but what’s a liturgy?” you ask.

Liturgy is the pattern or program of worship chosen by a church. It includes the gospel-related topics, themes, forms, symbols, styles, seasons and days that help facilitate effective worship for that particular church. In other words, liturgy refers to the whole set of seasons, days, tools and methods we use to worship, celebrate and enjoy God.

What Events Are Worth Celebrating?

These things are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. (John 20:31)

Jesus has the power to save us. The events that make up his life—what he said and what he did—can be used to lead us to faith in him. As we immerse ourselves in what he did, we can grow in our conviction and become more established in the truth (Luke 1:4; 2 Peter 1:8, 12).

Responding to God With Worship

We respond to God with worship, because worship is simply giving God what is fitting. He is praiseworthy, not only for his power but also for his gentleness.

What Is Worship? A Survey of Scripture

Many Christian churches have changed their worship styles. As is often the case with experiences, we have different impressions and reactions to worship styles. In this article, we examine what the Bible says about worship. Let's look at the way God’s people worshiped before Moses, after Moses, and after Jesus. Then let's see how that biblical insight can help inform our worship in the modern world.
