I Came To Praise The Lord (Eric Rogers, Ph.D., Pastor-Teacher  Church Without Walls Chicago

In a day and age when sin, ungodliness and unholiness seem to reign supreme, Christians found themselves beleagued and bewildered with doubt and discouragement.

But like the soldiers and servants of ancient ages past, who in the face of defeat, difficulties and disappointments sought refuge and replenishment through the practice, purpose and proclamation of praise.

"I Came To Praise The Lord" is a sermon that explores and examines how to worship, who to worship, why to worship and what to worship for to praise God's Holy Name.

King David is an old man now. He looks back at his life and reflects on how good and how worthy God is to be praised. He has fought one battle after another. He has seen blood shed, families in disarray and experienced personal crisis in his own home.

David charges the nations to praise the Lord and to recognize God's mercy. In his distress, he called upon the Lord and got an answer.  David argues what God will do when your enemies come at you. He talks about how there were times when he got himself in trouble and only the Lord could get him out and for that God is worthy to be praised. David ultimately concludes that he doesnt care who is  preaching, who is teaching, who is singing in the temple, just let him get into the House of Worship and he will praise the Lord.

For this is the day the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be exceedingly glad in it.
