Worship Jesus (Sermon by Pastor Lawrence)
Whatever you are going through, we all have our low seasons, but know that Jesus is the Rose of Sharon, the Lily of the valley!
Lily of the valley is because when you are going thru a valley in your life, He is the beautiful Lily
God is a God of comfort. His rod and His staff they comfort us. He is here to comfort us. Amen!
In the darkness the Lord reveal Himself as the bright and morning Star. You can only see this Star in the darkest night.
In your darkest night, He is the Star that shines.
He is absolutely worthy!
Worship the very ascent is found in knowing He is the wonderful God.
They refused to obey,
And they were not mindful of Your wonders
That You did among them.
But they hardened their necks,
And in their rebellion
They appointed a leader
To return to their bondage.
But You are God,
Ready to pardon,
Gracious and merciful,
Slow to anger,
Abundant in kindness,
And did not forsake them.
Inspite of disobedience, He is ready to pardon. Ready to forgive. Gracious and merciful
He is ready to forgive, abundance in kindness. Did not forsake us!
We have a wonderful Saviour. He is more beautiful then we can ever ask Him or imagine!
People considered as trash of the world, Jesus gave much love to them that they feel welcomed in His presence.
This “considered trash” depict us. All of us are sinners and in need of a Saviour! Jesus treasure you. Jesus loves you!
Weeping – there must be a lot of tears to wash Jesus’ feet.
People cry for various reasons.
When loved ones depart or someone we love is suffering in pain. Pain and sufferings is real in this world.
This woman why did she cry? Her tears were tears of worship because she experienced the love of the Lord.
Experience the love of the Lord in worship.
God’s love is so amazing, He loves me so much that i cannot help but tears flow down. Those are beautiful tears of worship.
The woman used the beautiful tears of worship to wash Jesus’ feet.
Waste (meaning) is the lost of something or pay for something not of value of the product purchased.
Spend something valuable in something that is unnecessary.
That is waste. When u give too much to something that is too little.
It is not a waste. The principle of waste only happen when you do not know the value of the Lord.
Your money and time is never a waste.
Give to the Lord. Worship the Lord with our very best. He deserves our very best.
Jesus spoke up for the woman. What she has done is a good work. He complimented her and defended her. What she did is in memorial of her.
In her heart everything that she did was worship. She was doing it for the Lord.
Who are you doing it for?
When pastor serves, they are not doing it for leaders, church council or even pastor Prince. They do it for the Lord. These people did not die for the pastors. Jesus died for them.
The woman washed Jesus’ feet and anointed Him with fragrance oil.
Who do you think will appreciate what has been done by the creditors?
The woman loves much because she knows she is forgiven much
She gave everything to Jesus. She is forgiven much!!
If You, Lord, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with You,
That You may be feared.
Then He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”
And those who sat at the table with Him began to say to themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”
Jesus is God. The price He paid for our sins to be forgiven. He went to the cross. The strongest being in the world is not superman, is Jesus Christ!
When Jesus went to the cross He went to the cross for us. He gave His back to be beaten! Everything He did is for us!
Because of love.
Your sins are forgiven at a great price. He loves me with a great love.
Believe in your heart you are the beloved of God.
Worship Him. He deserves our very best
Open your heart and worship the One who gives you everything! He is deserving!
Our wonderful Saviour Jesus Christ!
Remember those tears that this woman shared. Receive His love. We can’t help but want to cry. Those r tears of worship.
