Holy Water

Water in the Bible is a symbol for cleansing and purification. It was used in this way in the Old Testament tabernacle/temple, and again was instituted by Jesus as a profound symbol of salvation in the sacrament of Baptism. It is also a symbol of life. Water in worship reminds us of how God cleanses and restores us, and brings us into life.

Holy Water

Expectant Hope

The book of Hebrews says that Biblical people of faith saw themselves as temporary sojourners on earth, and were looking forward to “a better country, that is, a heavenly one.” As we join in worship, we always look with expectant hope toward what God will do, and we trust in our everlasting future with all the saints.

Expectant Hope

Quality Ingredients

In the building of the tabernacle, as described in Exodus, the people offered their very best—their best talent, and their best materials. So much that Moses had to tell them to stop bringing offerings! In worship we are inspired to bring God our best. This does not mean that we bring to God “the best” but “our best.” In the community of faith God uses people who may be far less than perfect; but our ordinary gifts become part of an extraordinary purpose as we devote ourselves, and what we have, to God.

Make Room for Mystery

The vision of Ezekiel (as well as the passage from Job) shows that God is beyond our comprehension and beyond words. Worship helps us to embrace the mystery of God, to be receptive to a deep level of Reality that is beyond our understanding. We often want to have everything figured out and everything under control, but we need to “make room for mystery” in our encounter with God.

Make Room for Mystery

Sincere Offering

People throughout the ages have sensed that they should bring offerings to God. We are moved through worship to honestly give, and to do so generously, with sincere hearts.

Sincere Offering

People of God

God leads people not into private religion but into a community of faith. This was true in the Old Testament; and in the book of Acts, the first thing that happens after the outpouring of the Holy Spirit is that people join in a community of faith together – the church. Worship is necessarily social, because the response to God always joins us with one another.

Join the Story

Christian faith means becoming a part of a salvation story; therefore our worship involves telling the story, and moves in the cycle of church seasons through the central story of Jesus. We are invited to find our place in the story. The video “It's Our Time” was created by Igniter Media and licensed by Sermon Spice.

The Sacrifice

The function of sacrifice in Biblical worship as a means of atonement. Ultimately, Christ is the final atonement for our sins and the way by which we can receive complete forgiveness and reconciliation with God.

The Sacrifice

The Real Priests of God

Through Christ, the final high priest, we are all made into “priests” in that we all have direct access to God, and we are all called to be leaders in particular ways, to be instruments of God’s grace in the world.

The Real Priests of God

Holy Fire

Fire symbolizes multiple aspects of God. It is mysterious. It is dangerous – one approaches with respect and caution! At the same time, it provides warmth and light, guiding one’s way through the dark. It is powerful. Thus Jesus said, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12) and said he would baptize with fire, which is what happened on Pentecost. Reflecting about all this gives us a fuller understanding of God and can inspire our appropriate response to God.
