Text: Philippians 3:7-16
Title: “Attitudes that Belong to the Spiritually Mature”

What does spiritual maturity look like? How does a mature mindset in the Christian life think about righteousness, and purpose, and Christ Himself? In Philippians 3:7-16, the Apostle Paul gives voice to several attitudes that belong to mature, spiritual thinking. We will examine those attitudes and examine our maturity in the process.

This coming Lord’s Day we will spend our time in Matthew 20:1-16. Our Savior gave a parable concerning a landowner and his generosity to some day laborers.

  3. What the Parable is Meant to Affect in God’s People

Text: Mark 13:1-2
Title: “The Temple’s Doom”

This Lord’s Day, we prepare to hear the Olivet Discourse in Mark 13, which is Christ’s farewell prophecy. Before He gave that, however, His disciples observed the beauty of the temple complex. Jesus responded with a prophecy concerning the destruction of the temple, a destruction that would take place in A.D. 70. We will hear our Lord’s answer to the disciple’s wonder over those buildings, and we will consider how His answer speaks to every generation since.

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

  1. Come All Ye Faithful
  2. None But Thee
  3. Hark the Herald Angels Sing

Preparing for Worship: December 2, 2018

This Lord’s Day we return to a regular schedule for preaching. In the morning service we will consider Mark 12:41-44. The sermon is entitled “Proud Men and Poor Widows.” We will consider why this account of the poor widow who put in all that she had to live on is given immediately after Christ’s assessment of the scribes. In the evening we will begin the third chapter of Titus. In the first eleven verses, Paul imparts a fourfold responsibility to Titus for his work of shepherding the churches. We will begin to consider the first of those, a faithful shepherd’s responsibility to remind believers of how they are to relate to an unbelieving world. 

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

  1. A Day of Glory
  2. Come All Ye Faithful
  3. Christ is Mine Forevermore
  4. Not in Me
  5. All Creatures of Our God and King
  6. Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery
  7. Show Us Christ

Preparing for Worship: October 28, 2018

This Lord’s Day we will spend our time in Mark and Titus. In Mark 12:28-34 we will hear our Lord’s answer to a scribe’s question regarding the greatest commandment. We will see that God’s greatest commandment also speaks to man’s greatest need. In the evening service we will hear God’s instruction for Christian slaves. We will consider the slave’s life, and ask how God’s instruction for Christian slaves speaks to our own world and our own lives.

Lastly, as part of the evening service we will have Nathan Ramirez’s ordination and say goodbye to him, Amber, and their children. Pray for them, and pray for the success of God’s Word as we approach worship this Sunday.

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

  1. The Solid Rock
  2. You Are Worthy of Your Glory

  4. Be Still My Soul

Text: Mark 12:18-27

Title: The Double Ignorance that Destroys

This Lord’s Day we will see a third attempt to discredit Jesus on the same day. This time it’s the Sadducees, and this time it’s with an absurd theology question. Jesus not only answers the question, He identifies two types of ignorance that will destroy them, and anyone who persists in unbelief.

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

1. Jesus Paid it All

2. The Passion

3. New Again

4. O Lord, My Rock and My Redeemer

5. In Christ Alone

Preparing for Worship: October 14, 2018

This Lord’s Day we will take a break from the book of Titus to consider our Lord’s message to the church at Ephesus (Revelation 2:1-7). As you remember, the church at Ephesus had many things that Jesus commended in them. But the one glaring problem was that they had moved away from their first love. In the morning service we will examine ourselves by the commendations they received from Christ, by His correction of them, and by His charge to them. In the evening service we will continue our study of the book of Mark (12:13-17). Spies from the Pharisees and Herodians came to Jesus looking to entrap Him by His words. We examine the first of their “test” questions, and we will worship our Savior as we see the power of His purity and wisdom.

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

  1. A Mighty Fortress is Our God
  2. How Deep the Father’s Love for Us
  3. Only a Holy God
  4. Come Thou Almighty King
  5. Romans 11 (Doxology)
