Big Worship - Worship Vertically

John 3:13-15 No one has ascended into heaven except the One who descended from heaven — the Son of Man. Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in Him will have eternal life.

• God is teaching us through this historical event what what it is to worship Him.

• It is a serious snake-bitten, sin-ridden people towards God's display of mercy.

• The holy, battered, bloody, mutilated Son of God is held high for the redemption of men.
• The vertical style is between God and You... keep it real

• Worship is the response of the whole being—heart, soul, mind, strength—to beholding God's glory.
o The Holy Spirit empowers it.
o It is fixated on gospel truth.

• We don't automatically figure out what pleases God it involves personal and corporate expressions.

• We beings are hard-wired for worship. Thus, worship, of someone or something, is certain.

• The worship that pleases God—worship from a heart and loves Him—is only possible by the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
