Last Friday, before our worship practice, we had our usual Bible Study. That day, Teacher Eda effectively facilitated the teaching.

It is very refreshing to be reminded about what spiritual worship. This is what we were reminded about:

That we can only have overflowing hearts of worship if we are born again in the spirit –  that is being yielded to the Holy Spirit who produces true worship. With God cleansing our hearts, we are motivated to know HIM.

First Corinthians 12:3 says, “No one can say, ‘Jesus is Lord’, except by the Holy Spirit.”

Thus, we cannot truly affirm the Lordship of Jesus Christ without the Holy Spirit. And we can only receive the Holy Spirit at the time when we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior.

Worship comes from a steadfast heart, one that is resolute, determined and focused solely on God. If you think of yourself more and how you want others to look at you as you worship, then you need to stop on your tracks and be right.

We must be repentant. We must be cleansed, purged, purified, having our sins confessed before God. For we can only enter into an intimate communion with our Holy God if our sin is sincerely dealt with. If we don’t, we will have difficulty abandoning ourselves in worship.

We are now about to join together in corporate worship. Let us all take time to ask God to direct His searchlight upon us to expose whatever is in the shadows, asking HIM to cleanse us as we repent. You’ll see the river of worship in this place shall easily occur.

Come, the river is so refreshing! Let’s jump and swim!

In HIM in true worship!!!

Now that I am old and gray, do not abandon me, O God. Let me proclaim your power to this new generation, your mighty miracles to all who come after me.
-Psalm 71:18
The psalmist was concerned that he not be forsaken until God declared His power to the next generation. Every generation must know firsthand the power of God. It is not enough to hear about how God visited the previous generation in great power, wonders, and miracles. Our generation must see that power manifested. Without a true manifestation of the power of God, each generation grows progressively dubious of God’s reality.

“One day Jesus called together his twelve apostles and gave them power and authority to cast out demons and to heal all diseases” (Luke 9:1). This action was more than simple religious protocol-it was a transferal of Jesus’ power to the next generation. What would have happened to the world if Christ had departed without giving anyone the same power He had to help people?

The same power that flowed from Christ’s robes to heal the woman with the issue of blood is available today. From generation to generation, God’s power has been passed on. Now it is our turn to rise up and show God’s power to the next generation.
