When the word worship is mentioned in a Christian context I wonder if playing music and singing are the only things that come to mind. Of course there is a lot more to worship than music and singing. In addition to doxa referring to honour in Luke 14:10, five other Greek words used in the Bible variously translate into the English word worship as follows:
My name is Matt Downey and I am new here. I am from Columbus, Ohio and I love God ever since I was a little boy. I am a true Christian and have suffered through many hard trials and tribulations including homelessness, hunger, fasting, sleeplessness, beatings, travels, witnessing, closeness to God, separation from God, spiritual victories and spiritual failures. I guess I have grown to the place where I sort of just want to get back into the ministry of believer to believer strength and courage, because I spent most of my childhood healing and casting out devils. Then I met God and He told me to have some fun, so I ended up retiring and settling in at everything was about Me and nobody else really mattered anymore. But as time has progressed, I have decided that I would like to get back into common ministry and help strengthen and encourage individuals in the Body of Christ to never give up on the highest blessings and to always go forth in God.
So that is a little about me. More is that I love web design, travel, spirituality including godliness and angelic hosting, Spirit travels through fasting and prayer, sleeping in, music, praise and worship, church, and pets. I love a lot of other things like art and museums too, but it's too much to list. I have a great family and I look forward to being a part of the online community here.
Looking forward to koinonia on Sunday. Be travelling away this week.
No-one will be doing a sermon.
We don't do sermons at our ekklesia (assembly).
We do paraklēsis (exhortation).
We do oikodomē (edification).
We do diakonia (ministry).
But we don't do sermons.
How do you like them apples?

God be praised! In loneliness and despair, feeling trapped in a sinful world, I know there is a remnant to be comforted by; I know there is a God that did not hold back His only Son. Thank you Lord for you are faithful and true.
