Preparing for Worship: May 28, 2017

For this week’s worship post there is something I would like to stress. Sunday is the Lord’s Day. We have two worship services. Both are vital. Both are included in our membership covenant when we all pledged to be faithful to the worship services of our church. Please don’t be a “oncer.” I know that Monday is Memorial Day. There is no better way to enter the week than with the sweetness of a Sunday evening time in corporate worship where the Word of God is preached.

Sunday AM: Mark 5:35-43 – “Christ’s Power Over Death”Sunday PM: 1 Corinthians 5:11-15 – “A Faithful Man’s Concern in Ministry”

Read both texts and come ready to give worship to our God, to exhort one another, and to hear from God’s Word!

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

  1. How Great Thou Art
  2. Jesus Lover of My Soul
  3. In the Name of God
  4. Trust You

Text: 1 Peter 3:1-7
Title: “The Real War on Women”

This Lord’s Day we will consider the war on women. I’m talking about the real war on women. It is the Satanic and worldly attack on God’s design for womanhood as revealed in Scripture. We will see that women who have placed their faith in Christ as Lord, and desire to live godly lives, are distinct from the unbelieving world around them:

  1. THE INFLUENCE OF A HOLY WOMAN (vv. 1-2)
  2. THE FOCUS OF A HOLY WOMAN (vv. 3-4)
  3. THE DISTINCTIVENESS OF A HOLY WOMAN (v. 5)
  4. THE FAITH OF A HOLY WOMAN (vv. 6-7)

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

  1. A Mighty Fortress is Our God
  2. Only a Holy God
  3. Jesus is Better
  4. Not in Me

Text: Mark 5:21-43
Title: “Lord over Life and Death”

Look at Christ. Watch Him, and listen to Him. What we are meant to see answers a question we’ve heard more than once in our study of Mark: “Who is this man?”

He is the Lord, that’s the answer. We have seen His authority over nature (4:35-41). We have seen His authority over the powers of darkness (5:1-20). This Lord’s Day we are presented with a day in the life and ministry of Jesus that magnifies His lordship in two additional ways. Jesus has authority (1) over disease, and (2) over the last enemy—death.

We will watch and listen as the providence of God has Jesus meeting with two people who are very different, and yet very much the same. He meets with a poor woman who is motivated by 12 years of pain, and He meets with a man of reputation who is motivated by the life of a daughter who represents 12 years of joy.

We will examine the passage under three headings:

  1. A DESPERATE MAN AND A WILLING LORD (vv. 21-24)
  2. A DEPLETED WOMAN AND AN ALL-SUFFICIENT LORD (vv. 25-34)
  3. A DECEASED DAUGHTER AND A LIFE-GIVING LORD (vv. 35-43)

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

  1. Solid Rock
  2. How Great Thou Art
  3. Psalm 126
  4. He Will hold Me Fast

Text: Mark 5:1-20

Titles:  AM – “No Power Too Strong” (vv. 1-13)
           PM – “Madness in the Face of Mercy” (vv. 14-20)

The Son of God came into the world to set the captives free. He came into the world to destroy the works of the devil. This Lord’s Day we will see that there is no one beyond the Redeemer’s liberating ability. We will also see the kind of madness that would turn away from such mercy.

  1. AN UNHOLY GREETING PARTY (vv. 1-8)
  2. A HOLY DELIVERING POWER (vv. 9-13)
  3. AN UNHOLY RESPONSE TO DELIVERANCE (vv. 14-17)
  4. A HOLY RESPONSE TO DELIVERANCE (vv. 18-20)

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

  1. Come Thou Almighty King
  2. His Mercy is More
  3. In the Name of God
  4. Our Great God
  5. Only the Blood

Text: Mark 4:35-41
Title: “Faith Informed”

It is possible to have a faith that underestimates its object. The disciples believed enough in Jesus that they asked Him to save them in the midst of a great storm (Matt 8:25), yet are rebuked for a lack of faith that caused them to panic in that same storm (Mark 4:40). Are we not the same? This Lord’s Day we will see the authority and power of Jesus over nature. A great storm provides a great test and a great testimony at the same time. The test provides the platform for a great testimony of the nature and authority of Jesus, but at the same time testifies to the smallness and weakness of those whom He saves. It is a great opportunity for us to glory in our Savior, and to humbly learn why we don’t trust Him as we should.

  1. A TRIP ACROSS THE SEA (vv. 35-36)
  2. A TEST ARRIVING IN A GREAT STORM (vv. 37-38)
  3. A TESTIMONY OF CHRIST’S GREATNESS AND THE DISCIPLE’S SMALLNESS (vv. 39-40)
  4. A FEAR GREATER THAN THE FEAR OF THE STORM (v. 41)

Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne,

6 and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Text: Mark 4:30-34
Title: “The Word of God Advancing”

Before Jesus had made His way to the cross, He was already revealing the future of the gospel message. He was revealing the mysteries of the kingdom—the truths brought to light by His coming. That future included the advancement of God’s Word throughout the earth. What would seem small and powerless in the beginning would eventually grow in a way comparable to the growth of a mustard plant. This Lord’s Day we will examine the fourth comparison that Jesus gave after teaching about the parable of the soils. We will examine the parable of the mustard seed under the following headings:

  1. The Purpose of the Parable (v. 30)
  2. The Promise of the Parable (vv. 31-32)
  3. The Privilege of the Parables (vv. 33-34)

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:

Sunday AM Text: Mark 4:26-34
Title: “God’s Word Received” pt.2

What can the reception of God’s Word be compared to? It can be compared to a lamp, and to the return one receives in a grain transaction (last week’s sermon). It can also be compared to the mysterious process by which seed takes root after a farmer’s hard work, and produces a crop. It can be compared to the surprising size of the mustard plant after it grows, compared with the tiny seed that was sown in the  garden. This Lord’s Day morning we will continue to think about our own response to the Word of God, our sharing of the Word of God, and the glorious way that God works as His Word advances throughout the world.

In the evening service we will look at 1 Peter 2:11-17 and think about a unique war that every believer has been introduced into through salvation. It is the war within, the battle with the passions of the flesh.

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2S4hScXPQwGuOVLhkpR-hrU6boUxxjzI

1. New Again
2. His Mercy is More
3. God with Us
4. Raised to Life

Text: Mark 4:13-20
Title: Four Kinds of Hearers

This Lord’s Day, we return to Mark 4 and the parable of the sower/soils. We first encountered this parable in Mark 4:1-9. After Jesus gives the purpose of teaching in parables (4:10-12), we now come to Christ’s explanation. It’s an opportunity for each of us to examine how we hear the Word of God and to receive God’s answer as we encounter it in this text. Those who receive the seed of God’s Word “with joy” (4:16) will bear fruit. And those who do not receive his Word, they “immediately they fall away” (4:17). May God stir up a desire in our hearts to know his Word!

In the evening we will return to consider Leviticus 19:32: “You shall stand up before the gray head and honor the face of an old man, and you shall fear your God: I am the Lord.”

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:

  2. His Mercy is More (iTunes)
  3. No Greater Aim (iTunes)
