Welcome to the Transformed podcast.
Worship is not a spectator sport! It is a totally unknown thought to think of sitting and watching people worship. Worship, by its very definition, requires the participation of all.
In our worship we are blessed by His presence. For those who “don’t get anything out of worship,” we would applaud their honesty. Since they are not the reason for the meeting, they should have been giving, not receiving!
As we open our Bibles again to Psalm 103, Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, lead Pastor at Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, California reminds us that true worship means God is receiving the words, attitudes and actions of the people in attendance. God is the audience, we are the actors. All we do in worship is for Him.
And with that final prayer of gratitude, Dr. Smith concludes this series from Psalm 103.
If you are ever in the Los Angeles area, the people of Pacific Baptist Church would love to invite you to worship with them. Simply open the link to Pacific Baptist Church and find the current worship schedule there. Worship is casual dress and begins promptly at 11:00 am each Sunday at Pacific Baptist Church, 859 Main Street, El Segundo, CA. You are always welcome!
Perhaps you would you consider sharing this message with a friend? God longs to release the captives of our culture into the freedom of faith. Thank you!
If you would like to explore how to enjoy a deeper life with God, one that God is pleased with, Dr. Smith has written a daily devotional book that will help you do just that!
In His Presence is a detailed look at walking with God through life’s ups and downs. Built around the premise that God welcomes you into His presence with joy and pleasure, In His Presence helps you see that the life of abundance can only be enjoyed when we take everything to the Lord and walk every day at His right hand.
You can order a copy of In His Presence from Amazon by clicking the link on the side panel of the Eagles In Leadership website.
Today’s episode was recorded live in El Segundo, California and edited by Ryan Longsworth in Los Angeles, California.
And now, until next time, I’m your host Mike Powers, praying that you would be filled with the love of God so that you can demonstrate His love to the lost and dying in your city! God bless!
