 When you visit churches, you realise that most churches, especially “big” ones, place a lot of emphasis on worship through singing and that a common practice seemed to have developed to lead people in worship.  It consists first of all of songs of thanksgiving, followed by praise and finally worship. It seems that the extent of the success of this process is believed to be largely determined by the way the worship team leads them.  Is there still an expectation of a gracious touch of Gods Spirit left, with so much emphasis on the technique of musicians and the skill to engage emotionally with people?

In Romans 8: 18 – 27 we learn about three different groans that are characteristic of the current age in which we live. We read that the creation groans to be delivered, that we, Christians, groan too as a result of living in this imperfect world with its pains and death. But then we also hear that the Holy Spirit groans for our sake, in compassion with us, before God.

 In Ps. 145 David praises God for his greatness in the area of redemption.  It is redemption that David has in mind in verses 4-7:
(Ps 145:4-7) One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts. (5) They will speak of the glorious splendour of your majesty, and I will meditate on your wonderful works.

 Elijah means "My God is Yahweh" meaning “I serve the LORD, the God of Israel”
In chapters 16 and 17 of the Book of 1 Kings we see the universal scope of the struggle between good and evil, light and darkness, the kingdom of God and Christ and the dominion of wickedness.

Paul and Barnabas were preaching the Good News of Christ in the city of Lystra. In their audience was "a man crippled in his feet, who was lame from birth and had never walked" (Acts 14: 8). Paul was used by our Lord to heal this man.
The crowds were excited and surprised by this miracle. They proclaimed Paul and Barnabas to be the Greek gods Hermes and Zeus – for who but the gods could do such a wondrous thing as heal a man lame since birth, they thought!
