What excites you?

  • Do you get excited when gas goes down 10 cents?
  • Do you get excited when your favorite sports teams wins against their rival?
  • Do you get excited when your favorite movie has a sequel? 
  • Do you get excited when the latest technology comes out?
  • Do you get excited about the greatness of God?

Psalm 47 is a celebration psalm. If you prefer quiet, meditative worship, this psalm will challenge you. It describes a praise celebration that involves hand-clapping, shouting, loud music and loud singing. Tradition tells us that it was written to celebrate the defeat of Sennacherib and Assyrians against Judah. It was a victory song praising the great God.

This Sunday, September 27, will be the 47th anniversary celebration of Faith Baptist Church and I’m going to preach a sermon from Psalm 47 called GET EXCITED! 

But this psalm is more than a celebration of a past victory. It is a prophetic psalm that looks forward to the victory of Jesus in His death, resurrection and ascension. I will encourage you to get excited about all God has done in the past and wants to do for you in the future.

We will continue to have church services in our building at 9:00 am or 10:30 am. For more information about our reconnecting guidelines, visit RECONNECT. You can also watch our pre-recorded service with the same message on Facebook Live or YouTube Live on Sunday at 9:00 am or 10:30 am.
