This message was given by Pastor Jonathan Stobbs as he continued his morning ministry in the book of Nehemiah. Why should we worship with great joy? In these verses we see that the people celebrate all that the Lord has done on their behalf to get the wall built and the city of Jerusalem revitalised. It is a joyous chapter! Pastor Stobbs speaks with heart about the importance of reverent, Christ-centred worship. It is the true religion of heaven, biblical religion that the people of God express their joy and thanksgiving in great singing together. Why should this be the case? Ultimately, the truth of God, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the message of salvation, the grace of God, they are wonderful things. Do you have a heart to worship? If so, is it based on the wonderful work of God's saving grace in your life?
