Words on Worship

Worship God by trusting Him

Posted by Charles Billingsley on

Proverbs 3:5-6 is a wonderful and well-known admonition to us to trust in God through all things in our life.  Whether it be work or play, in relationships or financial matters, we are to trust in the Lord with ALL our hearts.  Of course, to trust in the Lord requires faith.  It means that we have learned to completely rely on God’s promises.  It means that we believe His presence is not only with us, but that He will guide us.  We must come to the same place in our walk with the Lord that we believe whole-heartedly that God is true to His word, that...

Embracing the mystery of worship

Posted by Charles Billingsley on

If you are like me, then you like things carved out for you in neat packages, plain to see, easy to understand.  Unfortunately, that is just not the reality of our spiritual condition.  Many times there is a mystery to the things of God.  Often His word is difficult to understand and His ways are hard to fathom.  But there is a verse in scripture that really helps me when I question all this.  It reminds me that, although I may not understand what God is doing or why I am going through something, He is in control and He is sovereign.  Isaiah 55:8 says, “For my thoughts are not...

Honoring God with our relationships

Posted by Charles Billingsley on

I’ll be honest. I’ve never been the best at relationships. Getting into the real lives of others and letting them into your life can get messy and complicated.  And yet, when we look at the life of Jesus, that is exactly what he did, especially with His 12 disciples. These guys were together 24/7 for three and a half years!  You think they knew each other pretty well?  Here was God Himself, in the flesh, eating, sharing, sleeping and working right along side a bunch of ragtag misfits just like you and me.  And yet….through it all, He showed us how to live.  Jesus first honored...

Worship the Father as His child

Posted by Charles Billingsley on

It is the natural reaction of a child, when she is afraid, in trouble, hurt, or even excited and happy, to run straight into the arms of mom or dad.  As a father, there is nothing more fulfilling than when one of my boys comes to me first with a need or a victory to tell.  In Matthew 18, Jesus tells the disciples that we are to come to Him with the humility and the guileless candor of a little child.  And there, with arms wide open, He welcomes us as our loving Father.  It reminds me of a song by Tommy Walker that I recorded a few...

Worship with purpose

Posted by Charles Billingsley on

Do you ever sit in church and wonder what is the purpose in all this? The reason we gather together each week to sing praises and study His word goes back to the beginning of faith itself. Abraham worshiped together with his family.  Moses would gather the people of God together to worship and hear the law of God.  Joshua did the same, and we have been doing it ever since. The reason:  to draw near to the presence of God as His children.  Yes, we learn from His word, and yes, we sing songs of praise and give in the offerings and celebrate...
