2 Come, Let Us Worship And Bow Down Proper Attitudes – 1. REVERENCE Focuses on Who is being worshiped God portrays Himself as among His people Num 5:3 Deut 7:21 He offers the same privilege today to N.T. Christians Matt 18:20 You shall put out both male and female; you shall put them outside the camp, that they may not defile their camps in the midst of which I dwell" You shall not be terrified of them; for the LORD your God, the great and awesome God, is among you" For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.

3 Come, Let Us Worship And Bow Down Proper Attitudes – 1. REVERENCE What do the following show about my Reverence? What am I doing during worship? Do I arrive on time? Is my mind focused on worship? Jews started Sabbath Friday night

4 Come, Let Us Worship And Bow Down Proper Attitudes - 2. REFLECTION Focuses on who is doing the worshiping No man has ever earned the right to be in Gods presence Ex 3:5 Isa 6:1-7 Then He said, "Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.

5 Come, Let Us Worship And Bow Down Proper Attitudes - 2. REFLECTION I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet. And one cried to another and said: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory! And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke. So I said: "Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The LORD of hosts. Isa. 6:1-7

6 Come, Let Us Worship And Bow Down Proper Attitudes - 2. REFLECTION Focuses on who is doing the worshiping No man has ever earned the right to be in Gods presence Ex 3:5 Isa 6:1-7 Reflect on what a privilege it is to worship God

7 Come, Let Us Worship And Bow Down Proper Attitudes - 3. REMITTANCE Focuses on what the worshipers offer Despite this great separation, man is to offer God what He is due As best we can, we are to praise, laud, honor and glorify Him

8 Come, Let Us Worship And Bow Down Proper Attitudes - 3. REMITTANCE Our worship should have a sense of cost to us 2 Sam 24:24 God seeks such worship Jn 4:23-24 God is not trying to be evasive, hard to find Acts 17:24-27 "No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price; nor will I offer burnt offerings to the LORD my God with that which costs me nothing." So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us

9 Come, Let Us Worship And Bow Down Proper Attitudes - 4. RECIPROCITY Focuses on what worshipers give other worshipers Others present for the same purpose are to be encouraged, exhorted Our singing Eph 5:19 Col 3:16 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs

10 Come, Let Us Worship And Bow Down Proper Attitudes - 4. RECIPROCITY Others present for the same purpose are to be encouraged, exhorted Our praying Jas 5:16 Our eating of the Supper 1 Cor 10:16-17 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread.

Then those of Israelite lineage separated themselves from all foreigners; and they stood and confessed their sins and the iniquities of their fathers. And they stood up in their place and read from the Book of the Law of the LORD their God for one-fourth of the day; and for another fourth they confessed and worshiped the LORD their God.
