Brian Doerksen – Come Now Is The Time To Worship lyrics

Come, now is the time to worship
Come, now is the time to give your heart
Come, just as you are to worship
Come, just as you are before your God
Come

(Spoken: One day)
One day ev'ry tongue will confess You are God
One day ev'ry knee will bow
Still the greatest treause remains for those,
Who gladly choose you now

(Spoken: Come)
Come, now is the time to worship
Come, now is the time to give your heart
Come, just as you are to worship
Come, just as you are before your God
Come

(Spoken: One day)
One day ev'ry tongue will confess You are God
One day ev're knee will bow
Still the greates treasure remains for those,
Who gladly choose you now
Ooh, we're calling You
Calling all nations
Now is the time
One day ev'ry tongue will confess You are God
One day ev'ry knee will bow
Still the greatest treasure remains for those,
Who gladly choose you now

(Spoken: One day)
One day ev'ry tongue will confess You are God
One day ev're knee will bow
Still the greates treasure remains for those,
Who gladly choose you now

    I will be using this song as a first attempt in starting a new praise and worship dance class at my church. As I prepare to choreograph this piece. I am hurting for those that I know that still deny his lordship and love in their lives and it burdens me because I know that time is drawing near. Please join me in praying for those we know that are lost and for god to put a boldness in us that urges us to invite them in to come. To god be the glory and praise for it all!

    Unfortunately, geeelldee, I think you have missed the point here. As you have said, "Jesus said, 'You have NOT chosen me but I have chosen you.'" So you make it clear that we are not the ones doing the choosing here. God, through His Spirit, quickens our heart to make Jesus the greatest treasure to us. He does the work, by grace, and for that reason we worship Him and will worship Him for eternity. If you change "You" to "to" you effectively take Jesus, as the treasure, out of the song! He is our treasure and we want to worship Him, not focus on the fact of our worshipping. God is complete without our worship - He doesn't need our worship.

    God is knoking at your door, because he has chosen you. You have the choice to open the door or not. He will not force himself on you. From day one he gave us the ability to chose, as he did with adam and eve. He created us and wants a relationship with us. I believe he is knoking at the door of very heart. Its up to us to open our heart and let him in so that he can sup with us and we with him. H has chose us, but have we accepted him?

    My meaning to "come now is the time to worship" is come on everybody now is the time to praise the one and only holy god. Right know is the time to worship so get off your butt's and raise your hand and worship him, cry out to the lord.! He is so wonderful. Praise him for everything that he has done for you. He died for your sin's so you wouldn't have to. What a good god that we have.! Give all of you to him!

    God is always worthy to be worshiped. Man, whoever they are, have many reasons to worship him. At least, the fact that god is what he is and made man what they are is enough for us to worshipp him. Let everyone praise him then. However, in john4: 24, jesus made it clear that we should worship god in truth and in spirit. Besides, paul the apostle exhorts romans(ch12: 1-2) to offer their bodies as living, holy and pleasing sacrifices to worship god suitably. Therefore, before we present this sacrifice of worship, let's beware lest we offer a useless sacrifice unto god. Therefore, firstly, when you worship god, the benefit are yours, I. E, the more you worship god, the closer to him you get. Secondly, you get more peace in your heart and your burdens are taken away to let you fell at ease in all situation. So, let's praise him always regarding all what he requires from us. Not only for us it is of paramount importance, but also for those who are surrounding us.

    What is worship? We have a misconception that "worship" is something that makes us feel great about being in god's presence. But the bible says that "worship" is about pleasing god. In fact, pleasing god is the definition of "worship". This simple definition then changes our perspective from what makes us feel great, to what makes god feel great when we are in his presence. Since we are in his presence 24/7, we must live our lives for his pleasure 24/7. This is what the song is about.

    We come just as we are, because we are unable to cleanse ourselves of sin. The greatest commandment is to love god perfectly. No one does that for even a second, so all of us are sinning every second of every day. Some think that they have clean hands and pure hearts, but 1 john 1: 8-9 says that if we say have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
