Preparing for Worship: June 26, 2016

Text: Hebrews 13:7-17
Title: “Worship’s Public Response”

On our previous Lord’s Day we looked at how believers respond to the truths of Christ’s preeminence and the glorious riches of the New Covenant. This Sunday we continue looking at a worshipful response to those truths, but this time the focus is more on the public and formal life of the church. We come this Sunday to practice what we are learning and to respond to gospel truth with the joy and obedience of genuine worship.

1. Remember True Spiritual Leaders (vs. 7-8)
2. Reject False Spiritual Leaders (vs. 9)
3. Realize The Preeminence of Jesus (vs. 10-14)
4. Render New Covenant Sacrifices to God (vs. 15-16)
5. Respect The Leaders of the Church (vs.17)

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here. You can also download the music using the iTunes links below:

Text: Hebrews 12:12-17
Title: “Action for the Spiritually Disheartened”

Following his teaching on how a weary believer can know courage, confidence, and comfort, the writer of the book of Hebrews now calls for action. This Lord’s Day we will see that it is not enough for a weary believer to know truth – truth must be applied.

This Sunday represents a call for action. We will see,

  1. A CALL TO TAKE COURAGE (v. 12)
  2. A CALL TO A CAREFUL COURSE (v. 13)
  3. A CALL TO REMEMBER OUR PLACE IN THE WORLD (v. 14)
  4. A CALL FOR COMMUNITY ALERTNESS (vv. 15-17)

Here are several passages that would be good to read beforehand in preparation for the sermon:

  • Isaiah 35:1-10
  • Proverbs 4:25-27
  • Deuteronomy 29:18-20
  • Genesis 29:25-34

Text: Hebrews 12:3-11
Title: “God’s Word for the Weary”

How should a believer process hardship with a way of life fixed on Jesus? What does persecution, suffering, and difficulty in the way of gospel commitment mean? The Christian life is lived out of our thought processes. Christian transformation (supernatural spiritual transformation) happens as our minds are renewed (Romans 12:1-2). The writer of Hebrews is calling upon his readers (and us) to get their minds right. They are suffering, and that suffering tempts them to grow weary and to give in to sin. He calls upon them to fix their attention on Christ and on the truth about how God has chosen to relate Himself to them. This Lord’s Day we will learn about

     (1) A Courage Found in the Savior
     (2) A Confidence Found in Sonship
     (3) A Comfort Found in Submission

Text: Hebrews 11:32-40
Title: “Faith’s Grand Narrative”

It is our plan this Lord’s Day to finish Hebrews 11. The final section of this great chapter serves to tie together all of the various threads of faith’s story as witnessed earlier in the chapter. We will see that the nature and character of genuine faith is consistent across the ages as the expression of God’s grace, in the face of real conflict, regardless of the temporal outcomes, and in a way that connects all believers.

To prepare for Sunday, read about the six men mentioned in Hebrews 11:32 (Gideon, Barak, Jephthah, Sampson, Samuel and David).

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here. You can also download the music using the iTunes links below:

  3. There is A Fountain (iTunes)
  4. Speak O Lord (iTunes)

Text: Hebrews 11:8-22
Title: “Abraham’s Family of Faith”

Reading for preparation: Genesis 12; Genesis 15; Joshua 24; Acts 7:1-38

This Lord’s Day we will look at the life of Abraham as it is presented by the writer of the book of Hebrews. We will see that, although Abraham is the central figure in our text, the faith that animated Abraham’s life was not confined to Abraham. That same faith is witnessed in Sarah, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. From the lives of these saints we will see six characteristics of a living faith in the living God. We will also see that the one thread that runs through all of their lives was a willingness to embrace the future that God had promised them, even while they lived their lives in the present.

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here. You can also download the music using the iTunes links below:

  1. Here is Love (iTunes)
  2. Christ is Risen (iTunes)
  3. Rock of Ages (iTunes)
  4. God with Us (iTunes)

Text: Hebrews 11:7
Title: “Faith in the Life of Noah”

This Lord’s Day we are reminded that genuine faith is not only demonstrated in our worship (Abel), and walking with God (Enoch), it is demonstrated by obedient works (Noah). Noah lived in a time of unprecedented evil. He lived at the end of one age (only he and his family survived a worldwide judgment) and at the beginning of a new age. Through it all, his life serves as an emblem of faith, and of the grace of God. Come prepared to examine the nature of genuine faith and to examine your own life for its characteristics.

Prepare by reading Genesis 6-8.

Preparing for Worship: April 24, 2016

This Lord’s Day we will have a special day of emphasis that will become an annual affair for us. It is TES Sunday, a day when we will highlight the ministry of The Expositors Seminary at our campus, and think about the privilege and responsibility of training a future generation of servant leaders for the Lord’s church.

The sermon will be something very unique in which we examine selected texts of Scripture and answer the question, “Why a church based seminary?” We look forward to a great day of worship and commitment.

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

  1. Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery
  2. Show Us Christ
  3. All Glory Be to Christ
  4. How Sweet and Awful is the Place

Text: Hebrews 11:1-2
Title: “Understanding Faith”

We live in a world full of religious conversation. In fact, the world is so saturated with religious conversation that some of the language of religion has just become a part of our common speech. People who don’t consider themselves religious, still make use of the religious vocabulary.

And in this world full of religious lingo, there is a word that is dangerously misused, dangerously misunderstood, and desperately in need of clarification.

It’s the word FAITH.

Hebrews chapter 10 ended with an encouraging word. “But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.” (Heb 10:39 ESV)

Now, chapter 11 provides us with multiplied examples of what such a people look like in real life. Where there is faith there is fruit, and where you find the genuine fruit of faith you are looking at the handiwork of God. This Sunday we will look at one of the most famous chapters in the Bible, and we begin at the place of definition and description. What is the true nature of saving faith, and what is its fruit? We begin our journey in the exploration of that answer.

Text: Hebrews 10:28-31
Title: “Getting to Know the God of Vengeance”

A.W. Tozer, in his book The Knowledge of the Holy wrote, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” This Lord’s Day we will be reminded from Hebrews 10:28-31 that the God of the Bible, the true and living God, is a God who declares that vengeance belongs to Him. Not only does vengeance belong to God, God promises to execute vengeance. And, what the preacher of Hebrews makes plain for all who read his sermon, is that a rejection of the New Covenant revelation deserves that vengeance. Prepare for this Sunday by reflecting on our need to accept everything the Bible reveals about our glorious God. Stand in awe as we consider the holy justice that makes His gracious salvation all the more amazing.

Text: Hebrews 10:26-27
Title: “The Seriousness of Easter”

This Lord’s Day we celebrate the truth that our Redeemer lives! What a joy it is to remind ourselves, and to declare to all who listen, that Jesus was raised from the dead and lives forever! Because He lives, we live! Because He lives we have a sure hope, and we are sent to the world to declare that hope to sinners. At the same time, that message of hope also becomes a decision point for everyone who hears it. The book of Hebrews has reminded us that the gospel calls the one who hears it to embrace Jesus with a sincere heart. You cannot walk away from Christ without consequence. In Hebrews 10:26-27 we will see, once again, the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ, and we will also see the devastating effect of walking away from that truth. The message of the resurrection is a joyful one, it is also a serious one. Be in prayer for all who will hear it this Sunday.
