About This Project

Worship makes a difference in the life of a believer! We were created for worship and when we worship our Father– particularly in times of pain or sorrow, we thwart the plans of the Devil. He was once the worship leader of heaven, the Morning Star who was cast down to Earth when he tried to usurp the authority of God. Mankind was formed in “enemy territory” to show that we have a joy that is not dependent upon circumstances but is unchanging like our God who Himself is unchanging.  He is always good!

You might ask yourself why religious persecution is also on the rise with the latest examples being Canadian Pastors Artur Pawlowski and James Coates? The answer is the Enemy.  The god of this world hates the worship of God. He is so intimated by worship in the Church that he will do anything to silence it. We do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

God is distinct and holy.  He is not a lover, a marriage partner, or a friend.  God is the Sustainer and Creator who is worthy of worship.  We have to bring theology and worship back together again rooted in God’s Word. When we do that, we experience the 7 Blessings of Worship.

Worship properly ordered brings God’s presence into our lives and when we are in His presence, we are blessed. The first step is to acknowledge that our sins need to be washed away through the blood of Jesus Christ. Only then can we joyfully surrender our lives to God through giving, singing, and serving. The world will not approve of our decisions, however, when we worship God in holiness and truth according to who He is and not who we want Him to be, a prophetic atmosphere is created which empowers us to do greater things for His glory. When we exalt God, He expands our life.  He lifts us up and protects us. WORSHIP makes the DIFFERENCE: don’t neglect it, don’t dishonor it, you need it!


Key Verse:  2 Samuel 6:12-14

Then King David was told, “The LORD has blessed Obed-edom’s household and everything he has because of the Ark of God.” So David went there and brought the Ark of God from the house of Obed-edom to the City of David with a great celebration. After the men who were carrying the Ark of the LORD had gone six steps, David sacrificed a bull and a fattened calf. And David danced before the LORD with all his might, wearing a priestly garment.


Theme: Worship properly ordered brings God’s presence into our lives and when we are in His presence we are blessed.

Points to Note:

Reminder, the story of Saul & David is Our Story:

  • Saul: [Kingdoms of this world] Self-Centered, Demanding, Disobedient to God, Seeks His Own Glory
  • David: [Kingdom of God]  Other-Centered, Giving/Self-Sacrificing, Obedient to God, Seeks the Glory of God


Kingdom of Saul | Self-Absorbed and Insecure | Passing Away

  • Every moment is about himself
  • Everyone is suspect
  • Everyone is a threat
  • Willing to kill for his kingdom
  • Estranged from everyone he loved
  • On the road to self-destruction


Kingdom of David | Self-Less & Dependent on God | Arriving

  • Wounded by the Lord
  • Made useful to those wounded in the world
  • Contrite, Compassionate, and Hungry for God
  • Made ready to serve others


In God-Ordained Worship:

  1. There is an OFFERING FOR sin.
  2. There is an OFFERING OF ourselves.
  3. There is JOY and CELEBRATION.
  4. There WILL BE and DISDAIN from false believers.
  5. There MUST BE God-ORDAINED order.
  6. There WILL BE a PROPHETIC atmosphere.
  7. There is a FRUITFULNESS in the LIFE of a WORSHIPPER.



  • Seven Bulls and seven Rams were a sin offering to purify the Levites so they could carry the Ark without dishonoring God.
  • David’s wearing a “Linen Ephod” meant he was dressed like a priest.  It is an example of how we are also to be priests who bring people back to God.
  • In the ancient world to be barren was to be disgraced to the ultimate degree.  Michal’s barrenness is God’s judgment upon her for both her actions and spirit.  She was an idol worshiper of the line of Saul and despised David for worshiping God.


Episode Points:

  • Real Men: War For Christ And Worship Christ.
  • Michal loved the WARRIOR David. But she didn’t love the WORSHIPPER David.
  • TRUTH > Worshipping God is not about what WE want but about WHO GOD IS and WHAT GOD has DONE and SAID for US.
  • What Is Prophesy? Prophesy is speaking God’s perspective over a situation.
  • WORSHIP makes the DIFFERENCE:  don’t neglect it, don’t dishonor it, you need it!


Recognize the Following:

  • The Levites needed to be cleansed and when we come to God, we have to acknowledge that we too need our sins washed away.  Jesus paid that price for us.
  • Just as David makes an enormous gesture in sacrificing to God every six steps for the entire ten miles they traveled with the Ark, we too need to come to God offering ourselves completely through giving, singing, and serving.
  • In the world, we are always celebrating temporal victories but when we celebrate the Lord Jesus, we are celebrating something that’s fixed and permanent: the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Wherever there are real worshipers there will always be disdain from false believers.
  • Surround yourself with people who have a heart for God– especially in personal relationships. Do not measure people by outward appearances or performance but by their inward piety before God.
  • Worship should be governed by the rules of Scripture.
  • You need an “Asaph” who can prophesize over your life pointing out the gifts they see in you and empowering you to do greater things than you think possible.
  • God is distinct and holy.  He is not a lover, a marriage partner, or a friend.  God is the Sustainer and Creator who is worthy of worship in accordance with the Truth and the truth of who He is–not who we want Him to be.  We have to bring theology and worship back together again rooted in God’s Word.


Questions to Consider:

  1. What is your attitude towards worshiping God? What thoughts cross your mind when you look at how others may be worshiping?
  2. Are you surrounding yourself with people who are worshipers and treat God with reverence?
  3. Are you truly offering yourself to God as demonstrated through your giving, serving, and praise?
  4. Are you treating God with the reverence and respect that He deserves as opposed to making Him into a personalized God you want?
  5. Do you have an “Asaph” in your life?
  6. Is your life a light to those around you which testifies to the holiness of God?
