Why We Do What We Do in Worship--Enter The Presence


Passage John 14:6:
  6Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

A CRUCIFER carries Christ’s cross like Simon of Cyrene. Take up the cross and follow me—Jesus Christ.

Then as we prepare to enter God’s presence, God wants to wash us of our sins so we can enter with joy, not guilt.

Stuart Briscoe: When our children were small and we were trying to teach them to pray, we had three kinds of prayer: "Please prayers," Thank you prayers," and "Sorry prayers."

Confession is our “sorry prayer and please prayer.  I am sorry for my sins, please forgive me.”

God is faithful and just to forgive our sins when we confess (1 John 1:7)

Then we enter God’s presence with songs of thanksgiving!

Being in worship on time as we enter God’s presence is important
as you will miss the whole time of forgiveness and praising God for his goodness!
