Authentic God-focused Worship and the Presence of the Holy Spirit is important to us at Generations. You will find our Sunday services family-friendly, uplifting, relevant and God-honouring.
He is a relevant God, a knowable God, a generous, welcoming God of relentless love who can't wait to meet with His people and to reveal Himself to them. That is the reason He sent His Son, so that sin could be taken out of the way and He could have relationship with His people. Worship is transforming. We become like the One we worship.
Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)
Worship causes us to see Him for Who He really is. When we worship our God in the BIGNESS of who He is, our lives come into proper perspective and we open ourselves wide to His breakthrough power and presence.
TO KNOW HIM IS TO WORSHIP HIM!
Too many people don’t know God. They think they do, but they only know Him through other people, what other Christians have told them….and sometimes that is wrong. Some know Him only as an Old Testament God of wrath, judgmental, unapproachable, punishing, heavy-handed, to be feared…..others know Him only as the New Testament God of grace, who will put up with and tolerate anything and everything in the name of grace.
Some of you haven’t read your Bible, so you don’t know what He is like. Or you have just read some of it…chosen the bits about God you like, then leave the rest. By doing this, we can create a God of our own image, how WE think He should be (because we want to believe that).
Many don’t trust God, purely because they don’t know Him. How can you trust someone you don’t know? Like, really know? Is He dependable, is He reliable, is He trustworthy? Is He consistent in nature or does He fly off the handle? Can I truly believe Him? You fear, you stress, you worry, you get upset, because you don’t know Him. You can’t give your lives fully over into His hands, because you don’t know Him. What is He like? What is His nature? How does He look at me, see me, relate to me? I don’t truly know who I am, if I don’t know who He is.
You can’t let go, because you don’t fully trust Him, you want to be in control of your life.
You can’t give yourself to Him to experience Him more fully, because you don’t know Him.
God + man = a whole person. I become secure in me, when I know who He is. I become secure in life, secure in the future.
“Those who know their God shall be strong and do exploits” (Daniel 11:32)…..conversely, you don’t truly know Him until you take some risks and depend on Him for dear life….or until He is all you have to lean on.
“[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him…understanding the wonders of His person more strongly and more clearly]…” (Phil. 3:10 AMP).
You see, when we get to know God—really know Him—it fills us with hope and confidence because we realize He’s greater than any situation we will ever encounter. Understanding God’s character and incredible love for us allows us to relax and trust Him in every area of our lives.
We would love to have the opportunity to pray with you and lead you in a prayer of faith in Jesus Christ....so that you, too, can truly get to know God.
