Praise and Worship the God of the Bible

Main Praising GodTo praise and worship God is to express our love and awe of who He is. In Isaiah 66:1 God says, “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool.” He is the Creator of the universe and everything in it, which includes you and me. How wonderful and amazing is that!

Worship, according to the dictionary means: a) to show profound religious devotion; b) to have intense love and admiration; and the definition of praise is: a) to express admiration or approval for; b) to express thanks and worship to God. In other words, praise and worship go hand in hand.

Praising and worshiping God is not about a ritual, or prayer repetition. It’s not about spending a few minutes a day reading our bible or about reciting our wish list on a daily basis. True worship requires total commitment of our body, mind and spirit. It’s about exalting, adoring and acknowledging the God of the Bible. It has nothing to do with religion, but it has everything to do with having an intimate and profound relationship with God - the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Full Story

 

MSBCOC Spotlight

Who is Jesus Christ?Who is Jesus Christ? - There are many opinions of who Jesus is. All I can do is offer my point of view of who Jesus is to me and why I worship Him. Jesus is love. Jesus is God. He is my Lord and Savior. It’s as simple as that. Jesus came to the earth because He loves us. He became a man because He loves us. He died on the cross and rose again because He loves us. “God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love - not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” (1 John 9-10 NLT) Full Story

 

Remembrance
Rev. Dr. Samuel RayRev. Dr. Samuel Ray - It was on Wednesday, June 10th, 2015, Reverend Dr. Samuel entered into the unbridled joy of the Lord. Reverend Ray was born in Baltimore, Maryland on January 2, 1934, to the late Reverend Ernest Ray, Sr. and Annie Mae Sanders Ray. He fell in love with the Lord at an early age and several of his childhood friends sensed a difference in him. Baptized at the age of eight, Samuel joined the Morning Star Baptist Church of Christ, where he would grow in the faith and admonition of the Lord. Samuel preached his initial sermon in June 1952. August 31, 1962, he was ordained as a minister at his home church under the pastorate of the late Reverend Nathaniel H. Wicks. Full Story

 

Bible Study
How Many Roads Lead to Heaven?How Many Roads Lead to Heaven? - Do you believe we can follow different roads? What does the Bible say about it? The Bible speaks of only two roads. In Matthew 7:13-14, Jesus said, “... the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.“ Yes, there are different roads, but only one goes to Heaven, and it is narrow. The idea of “different roads” is used to avoid discussing different religious teachings and practices. After all, does doctrine really matter if your attitude is right? Indeed it does. Full Story
