17 Serving the Lord with Gladness Isaiah 44:6-28 True Worship I Chron. 16:29 I Chron. 16:29 Psalm95:6 Psalm95:6 Psalm96:9 Psalm96:9 Matt. 4:10 Matt. 4:10 John 4:24 John 4:24 Rev.14:7 Rev.14:7 Psalm84:10 Psalm84:10 False Worship False Worship Ex. 20:4 Ex. 20:4 Lev. 26:1 Lev. 26:1 Deut. 7:25; 11:16 Deut. 7:25; 11:16 Isa. 42:8 Isa. 42:8 Jer. 10:5 Jer. 10:5 I John 5:21 I John 5:21 Acts 14:8-20 Acts 14: :29 17:29 Example of a Contrast Format

18 Serving the Lord with Gladness When we come into his presence Consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am the Lord your God. Keep my decrees and follow them. I am the Lord who makes you holy. (sanctifies and sets you apart). Lev. 20:7 Lev. 20:7 Who can ascend the hill of the Lord? Who can stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false. Ps. 24:4 Ps. 24:4

19 Serving the Lord with Gladness When we come into his presence …let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit. 2Corin. 7:1 …without holiness no one will see the Lord. Heb. 12:14 …you ought to live holy and godly lives. 2Pet. 3:11 …for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy”. I Pet I Pet Lev. 11:44-45 Lev. 11:44-45

20 Serving the Lord with Gladness … offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--- this is your spiritual act of worship. Romans 12:1-2

21 Serving the Lord with Gladness Worship of Lips and Heart Must Match Ceremonialism vs. The Heart “ These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men”. Isa. 29:11-16 Matt. 15:1-11

22 Serving the Lord with Gladness Because words are sung in worship to God rather than spoken, does not make them any less binding on us for what comes from our hearts and lips. “ But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken” Matt. 12:35-37

23 Serving the Lord with Gladness Songs we sing I Surrender All I Surrender All Jesus Is All The World To Me Jesus Is All The World To Me He Is My Everything He Is My Everything None of Self and All Of Thee None of Self and All Of Thee Everybody Will Be Happy Over There Everybody Will Be Happy Over There He’s My King He’s My King I’D Rather Have Jesus I’D Rather Have Jesus I’m Not Ashamed To Own My Lord I’m Not Ashamed To Own My Lord O To Be Like Thee O To Be Like Thee Purer In Heart, Oh God Purer In Heart, Oh God This World Is Not My Home This World Is Not My Home Where He Leads, I will follow Where He Leads, I will follow

24 Serving the Lord With Gladness More Than Joyful Songs “…and whoever wants to be first must be your slave---just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” Matt. 20:24-29 The Secret Service “ Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven…do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving will be in secret”. Matt 6:1-4

25 Serving the Lord with Gladness More Than Joyful Songs Matthew 25:31-46 “Lord, when did we see you hungry, thirsty, see you as a stranger, see you in need of clothes; sick and in prison?” The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me’. Serving the Lord daily as we go.

26 Serving the Lord with Gladness When I have searched my heart and I have allowed God to search my heart as well. Psalm 139:23-24 Psalm 139:23-24 When I have consecrated myself before coming into his presence, then my worship is acceptable to him; when I bring him the best of all I have and all that I am. Malachi 1:6-14

27 Serving the Lord with Gladness Through Jesus therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise---the fruit of lips that confess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Heb. 13:15-16 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord my strength and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14

28 Serving the Lord with Gladness “Come let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care”. Psalm 95:6-7

29 The Servant Teacher Fielding Questions “ Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone”. Col. 4:6 “ A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, and a man of understanding is even-tempered” Prov. 17:27 Prov. 17:27

Repeat what they’ve asked, if a question, then answer. If a comment, listen for the main information, briefly summarize, then expound. If a comment, listen for the main information, briefly summarize, then expound.

32 The Servant Teacher Pesky Peggy Peggy answers all the time and almost every time. She has a comment on each aspect of the topic being discussed. Peggy will comment even if you don’t call on her or recognize her raised hand. Peggy pontificates.

33 The Servant Teacher Follow Fielding Questions Rules Follow Fielding Questions Rules Acknowledge Peggy’s first and/or second questions or comments, then acknowledge someone else’s comments or questions before going to Peggy again. Acknowledge Peggy’s first and/or second questions or comments, then acknowledge someone else’s comments or questions before going to Peggy again. If Peggy continues to comment, then say: If Peggy continues to comment, then say: “Thanks Peggy, that’s an interesting comment.”; then go on. Don’t comment on Peggy’s statement, this will encourage more comments from her. “Thanks Peggy, that’s an interesting comment.”; then go on. Don’t comment on Peggy’s statement, this will encourage more comments from her.

34 The Servant Teacher Takeover Trisha Trisha introduces points and topics that you did not mention, but Trisha raises these issues which sometimes invites comments from others and takes you off point.

35 The Servant Teacher First, try and find something positive to say about Trisha’s comments, but state that the issue she has raised is not one that you had intended to address at this time. State that maybe it is an issue that could be discussed at a later date. As much as possible, it is important to stay on point and address the slated issues and topics.

36 The Servant Teacher Ethereal Ethel Ethel intends to make a related point, but doesn’t quite make the connection. It is hard to determine if the point is related and you can see that others are confused as well.

37 The Servant Teacher When a point is really unrelated and you can’t see the connection, don’t try and make a connection. Acknowledge that you are not sure of the point and ask Ethel to try and rephrase or restate her point. Then address the comment.

38 The Servant Teacher Bombshell Betty Betty makes a personal or controversial point that stuns you and the group. You can see from the group’s reaction that they’re not quite sure what to make of it!

39 The Servant Teacher Make a comment that the statement is not one that can be addressed at this time and that if Betty will see you afterwards you will address her comment. If you address a very sensitive and controversial issue, it will usually invite several other comments that will take up a great deal of time to handle appropriately. And if you are not confident in addressing the issue, don’t attempt to.

40 The Servant Teacher Naysayer Nancy Nancy takes issue with the topic being addressed and your comments. She gives her personal opinions and states them with conjecture and much confidence, but they are not supported with scripture or biblical principals.

41 The Servant Teacher You would not want to have others be misled with misinformation, so ask Nancy to state the scriptural basis upon which she is making her comments. When and if she does, listen closely for accuracy; then comment. Don’t be afraid to differ and correct--- remember Col. 4:6.

42 The Servant Teacher Repeating and summarizing questions or comments serve to: Repeating and summarizing questions or comments serve to: -- verify that you have heard them correctly. -- clarifies the point and gets the audience more involved. --allows for you to have the individual repeat or rephrase for clarification.

49 Live Your Creed I'd rather see a sermon than to hear one any day. I'd rather one walk with me than just to show the way. The eye is a better pupil and more willing than the ear. Advice may be misleading, but examples are always clear. And the very best of teachers are the ones who live their creed.

50 I can soon learn to do it, if you let me see it done. I can watch your hand in motion, but your tongue too fast may run. And the lectures you deliver may be very fine and true, but I'd rather get my lesson by observing what you do. For I may misunderstand you, and the fine advice you give, but there's no misunderstanding how you act and how you live. Langston Hughes Langston Hughes
