ONE GOD IS WORTHY

  • If you HAD to choose your favorite music genre, what would it be?    

  • If you grew up in a church, what was the worst and the best part of the worship time at that church?    

  • Think back to the first time you attended ANY church service, what do you remember about praising and worship?

As you view the video clips below, think "Weird In A God Way meets One God Is Worthy."


THROTTLE UP

  • What comes to mind when you hear the word "worship?"

  • Why do you suppose people focus their attention on the "how" of worship rather than the "why"?

  • In today's culture, what are some of the worldly trappings that we worship?

  • How do we balance our need for food, clothing, and shelter with what seems like our need for the accumulation of "things?"

  • Take about 5-10 minutes and see how many people your group can list who have famously or infamously fallen victim to the worship of worldly goods.

  • Please read Leviticus 19:17-18.   These verses set the tone for later verses. Why do you think there is such an emphasis on this topic?

  • Please read Matthew 22:34-40, Mark 12:28-31, and Luke 4:1-9.  These passages are clear about who we are commanded to worship.  What else are we commanded to do?

  • Matthew 22:39 reads, "Love your neighbor as yourself".  How does this relate to community and our call to serve as an act of worship?
