Title: The Magnificent Prayers of Paul
Text: Ephesians 1:15–23

God wants you to know who you are in Christ. In Ephesians 1:3-14 Paul lays out in detail many of the blessings that belong to those in Christ and in verses 15-23 he asks God to help them understand those blessings with greater depth and clarity. In this text we see that there’s nothing more humbling than having our prayer life exposed by that of a godly man like Paul. We must allow Paul’s magnificent prayers to challenge and change our own.

  1. The Cause of Paul’s Prayers (v. 15)
  2. The Constancy of Paul’s Prayers (v. 16)
  3. The Content of Paul’s Prayers (vv. 17–23)
    1. The Hope of His Calling
    2. The Riches of His Inheritance
    3. The Greatness of His Power
      1. Shown through Jesus’ Resurrection
      2. Shown through Jesus’ Coronation and Presentation

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

  1. Song of Moses
  2. Here is Love
  3. You Are Worthy
  4. I Will Be Still
  5. Christ is Mine Forevermore

Text: Mark 10:17-27
Title: “The Impossible Possibility”

Salvation is of the Lord. Not only did our God accomplish everything necessary for our salvation through the perfect work of His Son, He also granted us the penitent faith necessary to receive that work. Apart from the sovereign work of regeneration, no human being recognizes his true spiritual poverty, his great need for salvation, and the incomparable treasure that is offered in Jesus.

This Lord’s Day, we will see that what is impossible with men is possible with God. We will learn this by examining the encounter that a rich young ruler had with the Lord Jesus Christ. Our outline for the morning is:

     I. THE SEEKER (v. 17a)
     II. THE CHALLENGE (vv. 18-19)
     III. THE CLARIFICATION (vv. 20-22)
     IV. THE SOBERING LESSON (vv. 23-25)
     V. THE CONCLUSION (vv. 26-27)

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

  1. A Mighty Fortress is Our God
  2. All Creatures of Our God and King
  3. In the Name of God 
  4. Show Us Christ

Text: Mark 10:13-16
Title: “Like a Child”

This Lord’s Day we return to our study of the gospel of Mark. We will focus on a brief account of people bringing their children to Jesus for His blessing. We will look at five aspects of this account that, together, teach us about the character of our Savior and about the kingdom of God.

     I. The Desire for Blessing (v. 13)
     II. The Disdain for the Helpless (v. 13b)
     III. The Indignation of the Savior (v. 14a)
     IV. The Pronouncements Concerning the Kingdom (vv. 14b–15)
     V. The Demonstration of Love (v. 16)

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

  1. All Creatures of Our God and King
  2. Only a Holy God
  3. His Mercy is More

Text: 1 Corinthians 7:10-17
Title: “The Believer and Divorce”

This Lord’s Day we complete our study of marriage, divorce, and remarriage. We finish with Paul’s instruction to the Corinthians. In this passage Paul addresses one of the most difficult issues in the Christian life. How do we advise Christians who are married to unbelievers? What is a Christian to do when an unbelieving spouse wants to leave the marriage? We will hear the Word of God on these matters for both morning and evening services.

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

  1. All Creatures of Our God and King
  2. Only a Holy God
  3. His Mercy is More
  4. Come to Me
  5. We Sing as One

Text: 1 Peter 3:1-7
Title: “Difficult Marriages”

This Lord’s Day, we will spend our time in 1 Peter 3:1-7. We will see that obedience to Christ, even in difficult times, includes serving the Lord in a difficult marriage. Too many believers are willing to embrace suffering in the Christian life in every realm except marriage. We will be reminded that God is pleased, and Christ is imitated (2:21-23), when Christians bear up under difficult circumstances in marriage. The outline for Sunday morning is:

     I. THE COMMAND FOR WIVES – EVEN IN A DIFFICULT MARRIAGE (v. 1)
     II. THE CONDUCT OF GODLY WIVES – EVEN IN A DIFFICULT MARRIAGE (vv. 2-4)
     III. THE CONFIDENCE OF GODLY WIVES – EVEN IN A DIFFICULT MARRIAGE (vv. 5-6)

Sunday evening, we will concentrate on the responsibilities imparted to husbands in verse 7.

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

  1. There is a Fountain
  2. It is Well with My Soul
  3. Sing to Jesus
  4. Praise to the Lord
  5. Behold Our God

Text: Colossians 3:12-19
Title: “Marriage and the Gospel”

We have been studying marriage in the book of Genesis, and the many truths we have learned can be distilled into two important points: 1) Marriage is God’s doing, and 2) marriage speaks of something greater than marriage. When we move our focus to the New Testament, we see those two big ideas expanded. This Sunday we will focus on that second point, that marriage was designed by God to represent something greater than marriage. Marriage speaks of the relationship between Christ and His church. We could also say that marriage displays a relationship that speaks of God’s grace in salvation. This Lord’s Day we will see that marriage was designed not only to display these truths, but to depend on these truths. Marriage displays the gospel, but marriage also depends on the gospel. We will examine the context that leads to the marriage specific instruction of Colossians 3:18-19. As we do, we will see seven characteristics of what a new life in Christ produces.

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

  1. A Mighty Fortress
  2. His Mercy is More
  3. In the Name of God
  4. All Glory Be to Christ

Text: Genesis 2:18-25
Title: Marriage by Design

This Lord’s Day we will look at what God designed and revealed marriage to be. We will begin at the most fundamental place—God’s design for men and women in particular. As we walk through the passage, we will examine God’s Word under the following headings.

     I. THE WILL OF GOD FOR MANKIND DECLARED (v. 18)
     II. THE WISDOM OF GOD CONCERNING MANKIND DEMONSTRATED (vv. 19-20)
     III. THE WISDOM OF GOD CONCERNING MANKIND ACCOMPLISHED (vv. 21-23)
     IV. THE WILL OF GOD FOR MANKIND DECLARED AND DEMONSTRATED (vv. 24-25)

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

  1. Come Praise and Glorify
  2. Christ is Mine Forevermore
  3. Lord I Need You
  4. No Greater Aim

Text: Genesis 2:18-25
Title: “Back to the Beginning”

We are living in one of the most confused, sin-sick times in the history of our nation. In truth, it isn’t just our nation that is demonstrating the slide spoken of in Romans 1—we are witnessing worldwide moral insanity unlike anything in modern times. The only answer, of course, is Christ and the salvation that is found in Him. And, for the people who have been saved by Christ, the answer is to be anchored in the Word of God. This Lord’s Day we begin a study of Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage. We will take a few weeks to focus on the biblical passages dealing with that subject, and we will see that the way forward is a return to the truths revealed from the very beginning. Our first passage especially represents that, since we will be looking at marriage as God originally gave it. We will go to the book of Genesis and listen to our Creator tell us what He designed marriage to be. This week’s sermon will introduce the series. We will consider…

     I. THE IMPORTANCE OF A BIBLICAL VIEW OF MARRIAGE
     II. THE MINDSET FOR A BIBLICAL VIEW OF MARRIAGE

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

  1. Solid Rock
  2. Praise to the Lord
  3. Jesus is Better
  4. Be Still My Soul
  5. Sovereign Over Us

Text: 2 Corinthians 13:1-10
Title: Nine Marks of Church Discipline Done Right

As Paul reaches the end of 2 Corinthians, he sounds a warning. He will make his way to Corinth for the third time. If the sin issues that have been addressed are still present, then he “will not spare them” (vs 2).

What does he have in mind? What is Paul talking about?

This Lord’s Day we will consider the matter of church discipline. What does the Bible say about this mark of a true church, and how is church discipline to be practiced? In our text for Sunday we will see apostolic discipline on display through Paul’s instruction, and we will consider nine marks of church discipline done right.

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

  1. Psalm 46
  2. Raised to Life
  3. How Deep the Father’s Love for Us
  4. In the Name of God
  5. On Jordan’s Stormy Banks
  6. Thou Lovely Source of True Delight
  7. Abide with Me
