13 Almighty God, to know you is the fulfillment of our deepest longings. Yet foolishly we have sought our satisfaction elsewhere. Our idols leave us empty and wanting. We have failed to love you with our whole heart, soul, and mind. We have failed to love our neighbors as ourselves. Forgive us our sins for the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ. Give us a faith that purifies our hearts, overcomes the world, works by love, fastens us to you, and always clings to the cross. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. Confession of Sin

19 Scripture Reading Zephaniah 3: Sing aloud, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! 15 The L ORD has taken away the judgments against you; he has cleared away your enemies. The King of Israel, the L ORD, is in your midst; you shall never again fear evil.

20 16 On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: “Fear not, O Zion; let not your hands grow weak. 17 The L ORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. Scripture Reading Zephaniah 3:14-20

21 18 I will gather those of you who mourn for the festival, so that you will no longer suffer reproach. 19 Behold, at that time I will deal with all your oppressors. And I will save the lame and gather the outcast, and I will change their shame into praise and renown in all the earth. Scripture Reading Zephaniah 3:14-20

22 20 At that time I will bring you in, at the time when I gather you together; for I will make you renowned and praised among all the peoples of the earth, when I restore your fortunes before your eyes,” says the L ORD. Scripture Reading Zephaniah 3:14-20

27 Deuteronomy 12 1 ¶ “These are the statutes and rules that you shall be careful to do in the land that the LORD, the God of your fathers, has given you to possess, all the days that you live on the earth. 2 You shall surely destroy all the places where the nations whom you shall dispossess served their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree. 3 You shall tear down their altars and dash in pieces their pillars and burn their Asherim with fire. You shall chop down the carved images of their gods and destroy their name out of that place. 4 You shall not worship the LORD your God in that way.

28 5 ¶ But you shall seek the place that the LORD your God will choose out of all your tribes to put his name and make his habitation there. There you shall go, 6 and there you shall bring your burnt offerings and your sacrifices, your tithes and the contribution that you present, your vow offerings, your freewill offerings, and the firstborn of your herd and of your flock. 7 And there you shall eat before the LORD your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your households, in all that you undertake, in which the LORD your God has blessed you.

29 God calls us to worship His way. The call to fidelity. The call to place. The call to joy.

30 1)God calls us to fidelity in worship “You shall surely destroy all the places where the nations whom you shall dispossess served their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree. You shall tear down their altars and dash in pieces their pillars and burn their Asherim with fire. You shall chop down the carved images of their gods and destroy their name out of that place. You shall not worship the LORD your God in that way.” vs 2-4

31 2) The place of worship But you shall seek the place that the LORD your God will choose out of all your tribes to put His name and make his habitation there. There you shall go, and there you shall bring your burnt offerings and your sacrifices, your tithes and the contribution that you present, your vow offerings, your freewill offerings, and the firstborn of your herd and of your flock. Vs 5,6

32 3) The joy in worship. “And there you shall eat before the LORD your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your households, in all that you undertake, in which the LORD your God has blessed you.” vs 7

33 NameEmphasis Burnt Offering Most costly offering - completely burned up --- total dedication – giving God my all Grain Offering Fine flour, costly spice frankincense, pleasing aroma— giving God my very best; Peace Offering Fellowship with the Lord by having a communion meal- enjoying intimate friendship with God Sin Offering Atonement of a committed sin; metaphor of purification- cleansing from sin Guilt Offering Atonement; metaphor of compensation for wrongdoing- relational restoration

34 “Every created beauty was created by God to lead our affections to Him….What if we were to realize that every sunset viewed, every.. intimacy enjoyed, every favorite food savored, every song sung or listened to, every home decorated, and every rich moment enjoyed in this life isn’t ultimately about itself but is an expression and reflection of God’s essential character? Wouldn’t such beautiful and desirable reflections mean that their Source must be even more beautiful — and, ultimately, most desirable?....The peril for us is when God’s beauty seems vague, because then so does His desirability.” Eyes Wide Open: Enjoying God in Everything, by Steve DeWitt

35 And there you shall eat before the LORD your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your households, in all that you undertake, in which the LORD your God has blessed you. Deuteronomy 12:7
