WHAT DO I GET OUT OF WORSHIP?


    Introduction

         A.  Question for us:  Do I miss out on anything when I fail to worship God?

         B.  The answer depends a great deal on the value we have of God.

         C.  Our worship to God declares our worth of Him.  Low or high value; we can expect
               something.  Psalm 96:1-9 (466)

         D.  Let’s focus on four experiences of worshipping our great God.  Isaiah 6:1-8 (518)

               to have a good showing?

   II.  We should experience a conviction of our sinfulness.

               we really are.  Isaiah 6:5; Romans 3:23 (831)
