“Blessed are the people who recognize the festal call!
They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.
In Thy name they rejoice all day long,
And through Thy righteousness they are exalted.”
The Festal Call is the trumpet blast calling God’s people to worship.
The ancient Jewish festivals—Passover, Pentecost, Trumpets, Booths—were a time of celebration, consecration, and remembrance. All the tribes and people of God would come to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. These holy feasts offered a place and time for the people of God to come together as one body in renewal of covenant with God and one another.
As Christians, we “have found Him of whom Moses in the Law and the Prophets wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” And like the Gentiles at the Passover the week before Christ’s crucifixion, we come with a expectant desire that cries, “We would see Jesus!”
The WORTHY worship concert is a unique event—the largest annual gathering of our regional Church unified in worship satisfying something deep in God’s heart. We are given the distinctive opportunity to come together as family and with one voice proclaim the Lordship of Jesus Christ and to assemble as worshipers across all denominational lines, generations, musical expressions, and ethnicities in unabashed confession of the Gospel of God’s Kingdom. This unity will be the chief attribute of the mature bride.
“That they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.” (John 17:21)
This is our greatest witness that Jesus is real.
We seek His presence. To be a dwelling place for His Spirit. And as we worship Him, we become like Him.
Worthy has one agenda. Jesus.
