Sermon Notes 

We are the ecclesia taught Dr. Maurice A. Johnson.  We are the called out ones God has called to be in the body of Christ.  I Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light”.  As such, the Bible extols us to praise God with vigor according to Pastor Johnson’s sermon title “Turn It Up for the Lord”!

 

“And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with a loud voice on high”, II Chronicles 20:19.  The fate of their ancestor Korah is recorded in Numbers 16.  Korah, who was a first cousin to Moses and Aaron, challenged Moses’ authority thereby questioning the authority of the Lord God Jehovah.  “But if the Lord make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the Lord”, Numbers 16:30.  Korah and all who chose sides with him went down in a fiery pit.  But God restored the descendants of Korah to continue to praise and worship Him.

 

Dr. Johnson posed the question, “Why do we praise like we do?”  John 4:22-23, “Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Him.” “’Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing praises unto His name; for it is pleasant.’ ‘Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD’”, Psalm 135:3, 21.  “Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD”, Psalm 134:2.  Revelation 19:1, 6: “’And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord Our God.’  ‘And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth.’”

 

Why do we praise like we do?  Because the Lord Our God is worthy and deserving of our praise.  As for me and my house, we’re going to ‘Turn It Up for the Lord!’

We would love the opportunity to worship with you here at Memphis Christian Center. Join us for Sunday service at 9:30 am or our Wednesday evening Hour of Power at 6:45pm.

Sermon Notes : 

"So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God"

                                                                                   -Romans 10:17

Continuing in the instruction of Proverbs 18:21, Dr. Maurice A. Johnson spoke of words’ being critical, powerful and important.  That Bible passage reads, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”  As believers, we need to wield our words wisely, noting what we say, when and how we say.  Ensure that we are speaking God’s words.  When we do so, we get closer to aligning with God’s purpose for our lives.

 

Dr. Johnson honed in on the power of confession.  Generally, confession is associated with admission of guilt or wrongdoing.  However, in our spiritual walk, confession works for our good.  Note Hebrews 10:23, “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is faithful That promised)”.  Here “profession” and “confession” are synonymous terms meaning speaking in agreement with something.  For Christians, that something should always be the word of God. 

 

When we assemble together, we need to confess words that will build up and lift one another.  This goes well beyond complimenting the outward appearance.  Profess what the Bible says.  “You are the head and not the tail.”  “You are blessed coming in and going out.”  “Your children will rise up and call you blessed.” These are examples of edifying professions using Deuteronomy 28 and Proverbs 31.

 

Jesus proclaims in John 6:63, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”  If our tongue’s fruit is to be life, we must speak the words of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

We would love the opportunity to worship with you here at Memphis Christian Center. Join us for Sunday service at 9:30 am or our Wednesday evening Hour of Power at 6:45pm.
