Your treasure is from the foundation of Heaven.
Study of the Gospel is investing in heaven.
  Doing for others lays treasures up in heaven.


BUILD up your Heavenly WORTH.

  Treasure = Value
Doormats ≠ Value

Built up or Reduced to.

Each one has to:
1. Admit personal sin
2. Not better than anyone else
3. Dependant on each other
THE WHOLE BODY IS NECESSARY
HONOR ALL PARTS OF THE BODY
BODY ≠ SEPARATE LIVES

GOD simply wants our LOVE.

  FAMILY (Body of Worshippers)  
  GOD (Common Denominator)

Hope creates faith to witness God Himself
All have sinned and fall short
Confession purges sins in pursuit of righteousness
Once far off we are now close through Christ
Do not be deceived with empty words of darkness
One is reconciled if remaining in the faith
Jesus died once for all and now lives to God
We are sanctified once for all by Christ’s sacrifice
Priests sacrificed once/year for sins of ignorance
Christ has risen once for all for eternal redemption
Christ does not have to re-offer Himself for sins
It is appointed for men to die once
Christ offered Himself once for the sins of many
Faith was once for all delivered to the saints

Worship comes from the INNERMOST heart.

Some think:
  CHRISTIAN = GAIN  
NOT
ABOUT
● Free from Contacts/Accountability
● Smarter – Religious Pride
● Rich to Enjoy All Pleasures

 THIS

God's people serve these over the True God:
  → To pursue Pleasure
  → To pursue Money
  → To pursue Self-Seeking Agendas   
Excuses skirt responsibility to worship the Creator
  ● PROPERTY / HOME  
  ● BUSINESS / JOB
  ● FAMILY / PEOPLE
Godly imitation flatters the Spirit
One must be ready to abandon all for Christ
One must bear one’s cross & come after Christ
Whoever does not forsake all cannot be My disciple
Whoever loses his life for My sake will find it
Disciples crucify the flesh with its passions/desires
If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed
All will know you are My disciples if you have love
Be imitators of God as dear children & walk in love
No one looking back is fit for the kingdom of God
No one can serve two masters
If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me in honor
To glorify God bear much fruit as My disciples
Go make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them

One must work to follow what Christ is.
Work without Faith = Trust in Self

Faith without Work = Trust in Self

... "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent."
~ John 6:29


BELIEF = WORK

Genesis – Isaiah – Revelation
└─> Search for God.

STUDY = EFFORT

... faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. ~ James 2:17

CONFESSION + GOOD DEEDS = GLORIFIES GOD
Sweetest sounds are what God gives us to hear.
One needs to make offerings in worship of the Lord
The Lord has no pleasure in insincere sacrifices
The Lord looks for mercy, righteousness, and justice
The Lord accepts a broken and contrite heart
God expects - do justly, love mercy, & walk humbly
All called to follow in pursuit of the ways of Jesus
Destiny is declared by desire for God or the world
A life without love leaves no sacrifice
Reasonable service is to our life as a living sacrifice
Control passions & desires free of conceit & envy
Sacrifice of Jesus sanctifies all who believe & obey
God wants spiritual sacrifices through Jesus Christ
Vocally praising God & doing good pleases God
Sacrifices pleasing to God
  To obey
  Repentance
  Righteousness and justice
  A broken and contrite heart
  Mercy and knowledge of God
  To do justly, love mercy, walk humbly
  Love God and neighbor
  Praise to God of our lips
  Giving thanks to His name
  Do good and share


Why Christians are pressured to give it up:
Peers
Pleasures
Error in religion

TYPES OF WORSHIP
1. Ignorant
2. Vain
3. Self-Chosen
4. In Spirit
5. In Truth

ATTITUDES OF WORSHIP
1. Awe/Fear
2. Believing
3. Unity of Mind
4. Gladness/Joy
5. Sincerity of Heart

Awe or Fear = Great Respect for God
Reverence = To Turn In

WORSHIP

IN TRUTH

REJOICE IN CHRIST JESUS
NO CONFIDENCE IN THE FLESH

IN THE APOSTLES' DOCTRINE
HOLD FAST TO YOUR CONFESSION
EAT AND DRINK OF HIM IN REMEMBRANCE OF HIM
CALLED TO SING TO GOD FROM THE HEART
TO GIVE AS ONE PROSPERS
WE ARE TOLD TO PRAY
FAITH


TRUST IN MAN ≠ TRUST IN GOD

ACTS OF WORSHIP
1. Listening to Preaching of God's Word
2. The Breaking of Bread in the Lord's Supper
3. Fellowship in Giving
4. Prayers to God
5. Praise of God

How can we abuse the Lord's Supper?
  1. When there is no anticipation of worship.

  2. If we believe that, "This is all that matters!"

  3. If we think that observance makes up for the
      time spent in sin; indifference and carelessness.

  4. If we spend the weekend in fun and games.

  5. When those who willfully absent themselves on Sunday
      morning rise to partake on Sunday evening as though their   
      absence on Sunday morning was beyond their control.

  6. As a frequent re-sacrifice for sin or denial of worthiness.
Some define frequency as:
● Every Day
● Once a Year
● Every 3 Months
● Twice a Year ~ Xmas / Easter  
Take Pause to Remember:
  HIS LIFE
      HIS DEATH  
HIS BODY = HIS LIFE  
HIS BLOOD = HIS DEATH
DIGEST CHRIST = MANNA FROM GOD
COMMUNE
SHARE
Continued Action = Growth
God Deserves Our Worship
1. Continued Steadfastly
2. Apostles' Doctrine
3. Breaking of Bread
4. Prayers
SPIRIT
TRUTH

CHRIST = GOAL

ONE
thing
I do
Forgetting
what is
behind me
Pressing
on to what
is ahead
... the goal for
the prize of
the upward call
of God in
Christ Jesus
Devoted to The Word
Time spent in private with God
Know the unity of what The Word delivers in Christ
Love one another as Christ loved us
REMEDIAL =   THE REMEDY: CORRECTIVE
  SKILLS CURING DEFICIENCIES
 Abilities = Respond = Responsibility = Calling 
  Don’t Comply = Against God
  Don’t Comply = Still Goes God’s Way  

Higher Priority = Devotion to the Lord

Daily Living to Please God

NOW
TODAY IS THE TIME
NOW
Today is the day.

APPEALS TO GOD
1. DESIRE
