This Sunday’s message will be on the spiritual practice of worship, and we are singing the responsive song, “Is He Worthy?” composed by Andrew Peterson who described the writing of the lyrics …
“I wrote the verses of the song in a … question-and-answer format, because when that happens in a liturgical service, I’m profoundly edified. I need to join my voice to a group of people reminding each other what is true, not just listening to a sermon but partaking in one… all the breadcrumbs of the Old Testament, the birth, life, and death of Jesus, even His resurrection, are leading to something so good and glorious and yet so astonishingly simple: a new earth. A new creation. He is remaking what the Fall destroyed. He’s ransoming a people for Himself from every tribe, nation, and tongue, making a kingdom — and we shall reign on the earth. That, my friends, is a staggering promise. It’s good, good news.”
