Text: John 6:22-39

In John 6 we read about two famous stories which occur back-to-back, the first that of Jesus feeding the five thousand (6:1–14), and the second of Jesus walking on the water (6:15–21). Immediately following these events, Jesus makes his way to the other side of the Sea of Galilee only to find that the crowds are still following him in droves. In these accounts we see that the reason for the multitude’s presence was the attraction of the “signs” that Jesus wrought. In our passage this Sunday morning, we will see how so many people seek Jesus but mostly for the wrong reasons, or with wrong methods, or in the wrong places. Those who truly look to him in faith, however, are explained by God, accepted by God, and secure in God.

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here

  1. Holy, Holy, Holy
  2. There is a Fountain
  3. It is Well with My Soul
  4. Come, Lord Jesus
  5. Jesus Thank You

This Lord’s Day we will spend our time in Mark 11:20-25 (morning service), and Titus 2:1-2 (evening service). This week I would simply exhort you to read those passages and come prepared to worship our great God and receive from His Word. I list both passages as a reminder that our evening services are important. We have covenanted together to be faithful to the worship services of our church. If at all possible, you should be present. We look forward to our time together Sunday morning and night!

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here

  1. Come Praise and Glorify
  2. Psalm 62
  3. Solid Rock
  4. No Greater Aim
  5. All Glory Be to Christ

Text: Mark 11:12–24
Title: “The King’s Previews of Judgment”

We have noted how Mark sometimes uses a “sandwiching” technique when presenting the life and ministry of Christ. He begins with a story, shifts the scene to another story, and then finishes the first. When Mark does this, we find that the two stories relate to each other, which helps our interpretation. 

This Lord’s Day we will see that Christ’s cursing of the fig tree and His cleansing of the temple both picture judgment. The King has come to save the world, but in doing so He will also judge the spiritual fruitlessness of Israel.

We will be reminded that Jesus is not just the Lamb of God who dies for sinners, He is also the Lamb who will one day come in wrath (Revelation 6:16).

     I. CHRIST CURSES THE FIG TREE (vv. 12–14)
     II. CHRIST CLEANSES THE TEMPLE (vv. 15–19)

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here

  1. All Creatures of Our God and King
  2. Song of Moses
  3. The Passion
  4. We Sing as One
  5. Psalm 126

Text: Mark 11:1-11
Title: “The King’s Entrance”

This Lord’s Day we arrive at Mark’s account of the final week of the life, and public ministry, of Christ. In our text we will examine what has commonly been referred to as the Triumphal Entry. On the Sunday before Passover, Israel’s promised king rode into Jerusalem on a colt, the foal of a donkey. Why? We will see that Christ’s approach to the city, riding on a colt, testifies in five ways to Him as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Our outline is as follows:

     I. A WITNESS TO THE KING BY WHAT HE KNOWS
     II. A WITNESS TO THE KING BY WHAT HE INSTRUCTS
     III. A WITNESS TO THE KING BY WHAT HE DOES
     IV. A WITNESS TO THE KING BY WHAT HE ALLOWS
     V. A WITNESS TO THE KING BY WHERE HE ENDS THE DAY

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here

  1. Always
  2. Jesus is Better
  3. Christ is Mine Forevermore
  4. Come, Lord Jesus

Text: Galatians 5:23
Title: “Gentleness”

This Lord’s Day morning we are focusing on the spiritual fruit of gentleness. What makes the spiritual fruit of gentleness different from natural gentleness? Who is the model for the gentleness that the Spirit of God produces in the Christian’s life? How is this gentleness manifested in a life; that is, what are some practical ways that it is demonstrated? And, finally, what is its mission? As God produces gentleness in His people, how does He use it?

In the PM service we will return to the book of Titus and look at the positive personal character qualities that must be present in the life of an elder.

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here:

1. All Creatures of Our God and King
2. Man of Sorrows
3. Shine Into Our Night
4. Trust You
5. Lord I Need You
6. How Great Thou Art

Text: Galatians 5:22
Title: Faithfulness

This Lord’s Day we consider the fruit of the Spirit called faithfulness. Just as we saw last week with goodness, the kind of faithfulness that Paul is referring to is a faithfulness that is not present apart from salvation. We will examine this quality under four basic headings:

     I. THE MEANING OF FAITHFULNESS
     II. THE SOURCE OF FAITHFULNESS
     III. DEMONSTRATIONS OF FAITHFULNESS
     IV. THE PURPOSE OF FAITHFULNESS

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here:

  1. Our Great God
  2. I Will Glory in My Redeemer
  3. O Lord, My Rock and My Redeemer
  4. There is a Fountain
  5. Lord I Need You
  6. Be Still My Soul

Title: “Goodness”

This Lord’s Day, and the next three, we will be considering four qualities that belong to the fruit of the Spirit. This Sunday we will think about the fruit of goodness. We will examine this quality be asking and answering four questions.

     I. WHAT IS THIS GOODNESS?
     II. WHAT IS THE SOURCE OF THIS GOODNESS?
     III. HOW IS THIS GOODNESS COMMUNICATED?
     IV. WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS GOODNESS?

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here

  1. Always
  2. Jesus Paid it All
  3. Man of Sorrows
  4. Come to Me
  5. Come Lord Jesus

Text: Mark 10:35-45
Title: “True Greatness”

Following Christ will mean learning new ambitions. Salvation produces a new ambition—the ambition to please Christ. But sanctification means learning what pleases Him. Following Christ will mean submitting our hearts to a new set of desires. This Lord’s Day, we meet with misguided desires. The disciples display their desire for a kind of greatness that belongs to this world. Jesus teaches them a new desire. Christ teaches them that true greatness is found in loving service, and Christ the Savior is the model. We will see three misguided desires associated with greatness, and one righteous desire that pleases Christ.

     I. A DESIRE FOR GREATNESS THAT IS SELFISH
     II. A DESIRE FOR GREATNESS THAT IS OVERCONFIDENT
     III. A DESIRE FOR GREATNESS THAT IS COMPETITIVE
     IV. A DESIRE FOR GREATNESS THAT IS CHRISTLIKE

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here

  1. A Mighty Fortress
  2. How Great Thou Art
  3. Jesus is Better
  4. Christ is Mine Forevermore
  5. Not in Me
