Preparing for Worship: November 19, 2017

Text: Mark 8:31-33
Title: “The Great Correction”

In our last study in Mark’s gospel account, we met with Peter’s great confession. We noted that a believing confession is the result of God’s grace. Regeneration explains saving faith.

This week we will be reminded that the same God who brings us to Himself then goes on teaching us about Himself. That is what we see in our text for this Lord’s Day. When Jesus begins to teach His disciples what it means that He is the Christ (as Peter had just confessed), Peter reveals that he still needs to learn about what he has embraced. Peter’s misunderstanding meets with rebuke, and the result of this correction is a view of the great mercy and grace extended to those whom the Father teaches about His Son.

We will examine our verses under four headings.

  1. THE GREAT CONFESSION (review vv. 27-30)
  2. THE GREAT TEACHER (vv. 31-32a)
  3. THE GREAT CONFUSION (v. 32b)
  4. THE GREAT CORRECTION (v. 33)

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

  1. Come Thou Almighty King
  2. A Day of Glory
  3. He Who is Mighty
  4. Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery

Text: 2 Corinthians 9:6-11
Title: “Biblical Giving”

Biblical giving is a matter of grace (2 For 8:1, 6-7). It is a grace that we all need in order to grow in (2 Peter 3:18). It is also an amazing demonstration of God’s presence and work in His people. This Lord’s Day we examine one of the great passages of the New Testament. It is rich beyond description. We will see 6 principles for Biblical giving.

  1. BIBLICAL GIVING IS A CONDITIONAL GRACE (v. 6)
  2. BIBLICAL GIVING REQUIRES A PERSONAL DECISION (v. 7a)
  3. BIBLICAL GIVING EMBRACES THE MOTIVE THAT GRACE TEACHES (v. 7b)
  4. BIBLICAL GIVING IS POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF GOD (vv. 8-9)
  5. BIBLICAL GIVING SEES WHAT GOD WILL SURELY PRODUCE (vv. 9-11a)
  6. BIBLICAL GIVING RESULTS IN GOD GLORIFYING PRAISE (v. 11)

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

  1. Come Praise and Glorify
  2. God with us
  3. Jesus is Better
  4. Christ is Mine Forevermore

Text: Mark 8:27-30
Title: Questions and Answers that Reveal Eternity

Who do men say that Jesus of Nazareth was, and is? Who do you say that He is? Those two questions get to the heart of our eternal destiny. How we answer the question of our view of Jesus’ true identity reveals whether we will spend eternity in heaven or hell.

This Lord’s Day we will listen as Jesus quizzes His disciples on that very issue. We will examine the record of that teaching opportunity under five headings:

  1. THE TEACHER’S INITIAL QUESTION (v. .27)
  2. THE DISCIPLE’S INFORMED ANSWER (v. 28)
  3. THE TEACHER’S FOLLOW UP QUESTION (v. 29)
  4. THE SPOKESMAN’S ENLIGHTENED ANSWER (v. 29)
  5. THE MASTER’S WISE CHARGE (v. 30)

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

  1. His Mercy is More
  2. Jesus Paid it All
  3. In the Name of God
  4. It is Well with My Soul
  5. He Who is Mighty

Preparing for Worship: October 22, 2017

On October 31st, 1517, 500 years ago, Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the wall of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, located in modern-day Germany. What began as a published critique on the excesses of the Roman Catholic Church turned into what we now recognize as the Reformation. We summarize the Reformation by referring to five famous statements that point to the exclusive confessions of biblical Christianity.

  • Scripture alone
  • Faith alone
  • Grace alone
  • Christ alone
  • To the glory of God alone

This Lord’s Day morning and evening we will set our attention on Romans 4:1-8. We will concentrate on Sola Gratia (grace alone), and see how God’s plan to save sinners through faith alone in Jesus Christ (Sola Fide) perfectly accords with our highest authority (Sola Scriptura). We will be reminded that our salvation is in our Savior, Lord, and King (Solus Christus), and is to the glory of God alone (Soli Deo Gloria).

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

  1. We Sing as One
  2. Shine Into Our Night
  3. Before the Throne of God Above
  4. I Will Be Still
  5. Here is Love

Text: Mark 8:22-26
Title: “Clear Sight”

This Lord’s Day we will be examining a very unique miracle account. It is one of two miracles only recorded in Mark’s gospel account (the other was the healing of the deaf man in chapter 7). In addition, it is the only record we have of Jesus healing someone in more than one step (He touches the man’s eyes twice). This account also marks the last point before a major shift in the book of Mark. The book’s focus changes geographically from this point forward (Galilee to Judea), and in terms of Christ’s instruction (less focused on the crowds and more on His disciples).

We will examine this section under the following headings:

  1. THE ACCOUNT OF THE MIRACLE
  2. THE APPLICATION OF THE MIRACLE
  3. SOME IMPLICATIONS OF THE MIRACLE

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

  1. All Creatures of Our God and King
  2. New Again
  3. Raised to Life
  4. Come to Me

Preparing for Worship: October 8, 2017

This Sunday we will move away from the book of Mark and look to Acts 8:1-8. This text follows on the heels of the story of the trial and murder of Stephen, church history’s first martyr after the ascension of Christ. Up to this point in the narrative of the church, the apostles choose a man to replace Judas (Acts 1), and then the Holy Spirit indwells the believers in Jerusalem (Acts 2). From Acts 3-6, the apostles suffer persecution, but the church flourishes. Even so, the bulk of their ministry is concentrated in Jerusalem and the surrounding area. All this changes when Stephen is executed for his faith. As Saul ravages the church, the believers scatter abroad. At first this might seem like the church in trouble, but this is part of God’s plan and Jesus’ commission (Matt 28). Through great suffering, the church spreads across the known world as the gospel of Christ is proclaimed. 

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

  1. Man of Sorrows
  2. Christ is Risen
  3. God with Us
  4. No Greater Aim
  5. The Church’s One Foundation

Unity College Conference

Web rotator page 001

“Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel.” Philippians 1:27

College is a unique season of life where students make several new friends, visit other like-minded churches, serve in various ministries, grow in their knowledge of Scripture, and follow Christ more faithfully. It is a flashpoint for spiritual growth. This growth in Christlikeness rarely comes alone. Rather, college students thrive in contexts where other college students come together around the preaching of the Word of God. Nothing is sweeter than making new friends in college who share a passion for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

That is why Unity College Conference exists.

Founders Baptist Church in Spring, Lakeside Bible in Montgomery, and a handful of other like-minded college and career students from different local churches are getting together for an overnight, retreat-style conference this Fall in Hockley, TX.

So come—and invite others to come—for three sermons on biblical unity, a pastors’ QnA on unity, music from Lakeside and Founders’ bands, small group discussions on topics that interest college students, fun games, free time for swimming, four shared meals together, and an unforgettable overnighter!

Our vision is for college ministries of various shapes and sizes in the greater Houston area to come together around the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus prayed that we would be one just as He and His Father are one (John 17:22), so we will honor Christ by studying the Scriptures on unity in interpersonal relationships, unity within the local church, and unity among believers from other churches.

If you are “away to school” but can make it back, that is why we are meeting Friday night through Saturday. Maybe you can still come! If you have a friend who is college/career-age, invite them to come with you to hear the Word of God preached!

Girls will get first dibs for a sleeping spot inside the Ramirez’s house. Guys (and any girls who want) will bring tents and stay overnight under the stars. Everyone, be sure to bring a pillow, sleeping bag, towel, change of clothes, swimsuit, toiletries, and a Bible and pen/pencil!

Sign up today with the “Register Now” link below. The cost for this event is only $50! You can on this site via PayPal by clicking on the “Pay Now” link at the bottom. Be sure to put “College Conference” in the “notes” section on PayPal. 

We are one!

Text: Mark 8:1-21
Title: “Hungry, Unbelieving, or Dull?”

In the miracles of Christ we meet with more than physical provision—we meet with kingdom lessons. In Mark 8:1-21, we see the feeding of the 4,000 and Christ’s words that follow that miracle. The three scenes that we will examine point to a lesson about spiritual hunger and spiritual perception. We will examine the text under three headings:

  1. A HUNGRY CROWD (vv. 1-10)
  2. AN UNBELIEVING GENERATION (vv. 11-13)
  3. A DULL GROUP OF BELIEVERS (vv. 14-21)

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

  1. New Again
  2. Always
  3. We Sing as One
  4. Come to Me
  5. In the Name of God

Text: 2 Corinthians 7:13-16
Title: “Legitimate Confidence”

This Lord’s Day we gather with great joy, and, at the same time, some sorrow. Our sorrow is due to the ongoing aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and the many needs represented in that recovery. Our joy is in Christ and in the tremendous displays of God’s mercies through the storm. We gather to express our confidence in God and His Word, to confront and confess our sins, and to celebrate His grace to us in Christ. The passage before us this Lord’s Day is an expression of the apostle Paul’s confidence in the Corinthian saints. We will see that it was a gospel confidence, and we will examine ourselves in the light of that confidence.

  1. PAUL’S BOASTING (vv. 13-16)
  2. PAUL’S REASON FOR BOASTING (vv. 13-16)
  3. PAUL’S EXHORTATION THAT FOLLOWS HIS BOASTING (8:1ff.)

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

  1. Come Thou Fount
  2. His Mercy is More
  3. It is Well with My Soul
  4. Be Still My Soul
