a rediscovery

Since Covid-19 turned our world upside down and our way of gathering for worship changed, we've been praying and asking the question:
"God, how should we be worshiping you in this season?"  
What's incredible is that seeking the Lord about this has led to rediscovering the very heart of how and why we worship in the first place!  
It turns out we should always be asking what might be pleasing to our loving Father's heart when we worship,
no matter the situation (Romans 12:1)!
We have some new environments to learn how to worship in,
and we have a fresh opportunity to become the kind of worshipers He seeks (John 4:23-24).
Above all, we want to sing and make music in our hearts directly to and for the Lord Himself (Ephesians 5:19).
It's our response to who He is and the love He shows us!  
And because worship is the testimony of the church about God, sung aloud (Colossians 3:16),
we sing the transforming gospel of who Jesus is for all who have ears to hear - because that's what God wants!
Worship that is offered with the presence of God's Holy Spirit among us facilitates His amazing work.
As we worship, and we behold the glory of Jesus, the Spirit continues the work He's begun in our lives
and we are transformed to become more like the one whom we worship (2 Corinthians 3:18)!
At the same time people are drawn to receive God's love, some of them for the first time.  
And that's what God wants!
"Praise the Lord, oh my soul, and all that is within me praise His holy name!" (Psalm 103:1)
This is the call to which we have responded, and so we engage the breath of our lungs, the strength of our bodies, the depth of our souls, and the focus of our hearts and minds (Deuteronomy 6:5) all in loving worship to God the Father, to Jesus the Son, and to His Holy Spirit.
Because that's what God wants. And it's what we love to do!
We hope you'll join us in worship!  And if you are interested in serving with our worship ministry team, or if you have questions about worship at Malibu Pacific Church, we'd really love to hear from you!  mailto:info@malibupacific.church
