Summer Series: Outrageous Worship Too
As we pointed out in the previous post, as a church we are intentionally founded on the Presence of God, growing in his Presence and learning how to be led by him in all that we do and everywhere we go. Our times of worship both individually and corporately are really important.
In July 2014, Julian Adams visited Jubilee Church and brought a prophetic word for us. Prophetic words are not scripture, but we believe that God speaks to us through prophetic words given by people that God has given this gift to. We recognise the gift given to Julian. The prophetic word given in 2014 has been really important to the church during the last 5 years and will continue to be important. Part of the word said: ‘And so Jubilee Church, I want you to understand today, says the Lord. That you will usher in My reign in the context of outrageous worship. That what will mark this church in this season, what will shift the atmosphere in this season, what will replace spiritual strongholds will come from the place of outrageous worship’.
In this blog post we will take a look at the remainder of our Summer Series using a Psalm to illustrate the teaching on Outrageous Worship.
Richard Moores chose Psalm 8 as he spoke about Outrageous Worship When We Encounter The King. He asked the question: How does it impact other people when we worship?
Paul Norris continued the series talking about Outrageous Worship When All is Ticketyboo. He used Psalm 16 to illustrate the need to worship when things are going well. Paul encouraged us to revel in the good times, to worship God and thank him for them. God gives us the good times to breakdown the way we think. Acknowledge the good. This breaks down our negative thinking.
Psalm 51 was used by Jon Marshall when he spoke about a healthy way to handle sin in his talk: Outrageous Worship When We Mess Up. He challenged our thinking about guilt, grace and joy.
Tom Millington concluded the series with Outrageous Worship Together Here and Together Apart. Illustrated by Psalm 96, Tom spoke about there being no end to outrageous worship.
The important message from this series is that we all carry the presence of God with us wherever we go. Outrageous worship is not just about our Sundays in the church meeting but in the good times, the difficult times, at work, at home, at school, at the pub, at the Balti house, in the shopping centre. Wherever we are, God is with us and we can change the atmosphere in any and all of these places.
