Text: Psalm 112
Title: “Praising God for Godliness”

When God’s people heed God’s word it is the wisest choice they could ever make. Godliness is great gain. It is not only a life that holds promise for an eternal future, it is the only satisfying life right now. Holiness and happiness are partners. The way of obedience holds the sweetest fruit that life has to offer. Psalm 112 tells us that story.
     I. THE CALL TO PRAISE (v. 1)
     II. THE CAUSE FOR PRAISE (vv. 1b-9)
          A. THE BLESSED MAN (v. 1b)
          B. THE BLESSINGS OF THE MAN (vv. 2-9)
     III. THE CONTRAST TO PRAISE (v. 10)

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

  1. New Again
  2. Jesus Paid it All
  3. His Mercy is More

Text: Colossians 3:12-13
Title: “Why Forgiven People Must Forgive”

There is only one man who could have ever claimed that he had no need to forgive trespasses because he committed no trespasses. That same man, the Son of God, the Lord of Glory, provided the greatest gift of forgiveness the universe will ever know. The sinless one paid for the forgiveness of those who sinned against Him.

Those of us who have been saved by Christ can’t claim sinlessness like our Lord. Anything we forgive is not worthy to be compared to what we have been forgiven. And if a person has truly been forgiven, deep within their heart they know that their sins are greater than anything they would ever have to forgive—even when they find it difficult to forgive. This Lord’s Day we will see four reasons why forgiven people will be characterized by forgiveness. Four reasons why forgiven people must forgive.

     I. FORGIVENESS BELONGS TO THE NEW MAN
     II. FORGIVENESS IS REQUIRED OF THE NEW MAN
     III. FORGIVENESS IS UNDERSTOOD BY THE NEW MAN
     IV. FORGIVENESS DEMONSTRATES THE NEW MAN

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

  1. Come Thou Almighty King
  2. Psalm 46
  3. There is a Fountain
  4. Lord of Lords

Text: 2 Timothy 1:6-7
Title: “Four Reminders for Zealous Ministry”

The book of 2 Timothy is Paul’s final New Testament letter. He makes clear that he is writing with the awareness that the end of his life is near (2 Tim 4:6-8). He communicates concern about a great many things, but he emphasizes one thing in particular in the first chapter—Paul is concerned that Timothy take up the mantle of ministry with zeal. He reminds Timothy to stir again the gift of God that was given to him. When we listen to verses 6 and 7 of the first chapter, paying attention to the context in which they were given, we see how Timothy’s mentor exhorts him to zealous ministry. We are reminded of how our ministries must remain zealous as well. Our outline is as follows:

     I. ZEALOUS MINISTRY IS NEEDED (v. 6)
     II. ZEALOUS MINISTRY IS A POSSIBILITY (v. 6)
     III. ZEALOUS MINISTRY IS A RESPONSIBILITY (v. 6)
     IV. ZEALOUS MINISTRY IS A STEWARDSHIP OF RESOURCES (vv. 5-7)

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

  1. Praise to the Lord
  2. All Creatures of Our God and King
  3. It is Well with My Soul
  4. Psalm 46 (Lord of Hosts)
  5. Shine Into Our Night

Text: Matthew 12:33-37
Title: “What Words Reveal”

This Lord’s Day we will see that man’s heart condition is revealed in his speech. Jesus has been maligned by the Pharisees. Our Lord makes clear to them that their judgments are illogical, they are sinful, and they are dangerous. But Jesus does more than identify the nature of their statements, He gets to the root cause for them. Their words are worthless because their hearts are wicked. Jesus speaks of three judgments against them. But these judgments apply to us today, too. They reveal what our hearts reveal (what they say about us):

     I. THE JUDGMENT THAT JESUS DEMANDS (v. 33)
     II. THE JUDGMENT THAT JESUS DECLARES (vv. 34-35)
     III. THE JUDGMENT THAT JESUS DIVULGES (vv. 36-37)

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

  1. Our Great God
  2. Raised to Life
  3. We Sing as One
  4. In the Name of God
  5. Oh the Deep, Deep Love

Preparing for Worship: January 21, 2018

We will spend this Lord’s Day in Psalm 47 for the morning service and 2 Corinthians 11:16-21 for the evening service.

In the morning we will celebrate God as King under the following headings:

  1. The Celebration of God’s Universal Rule (vv. 1-2)
  2. The Celebration of God’s Sovereign Love (vv. 3-4)
  3. The Celebration of God’s Ascension to the Throne (vv. 5-7)
  4. The Celebration of God’s Exercise of Authority (vv. 8-9)

In the evening, we will listen to Paul’s preparation for the “Fool’s Speech.” He sets the stage by reminding us that pride is foolish (vv. 16-17), and pride is fleshly (vv. 18-21). It is a great example of how to answer a fool according to his folly (Proverbs 26:4-5), and how human boasting is to be abhorred.

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. You Are Worthy of Your Glory
  4. O Lord, My Rock and My Redeemer

Text: Mark 9:42-50
Title: “The Children of God in This World”

Anyone who thinks soundly in this world will never confine their thoughts to this world. Sound thinking will make eternity the preeminent focus and emphasis of your brief lifespan. And that sober way of thinking will not be confined to your own soul alone; you will also give thought to the souls of others.

This Lord’s Day we will be reminded of that point. Christ instructs His disciples about the seriousness of life in this world, and the preciousness of the soul. We will examine our verses under the following headings:

     I. THE SERIOUSNESS OF OUR INFLUENCE ON THE SOULS OF OTHERS (v. 42)
     II. THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE CHOICES THAT INFLUENCE OUR OWN SOUL (vv. 43-49)
     III. THE SERIOUS COMMITMENTS OF GOD’S CHILDREN CONSIDERING THESE INFLUENCES (v. 50)

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

  1. The Solid Rock
  2. It is Well with My Soul
  3. O Great God
  4. God of this Restless Heart
  5. Abide with Me

Text: Mark 9:38-41
Title: “Narrower than Jesus”

Guarding sound doctrine and watching out for spiritual wolves is a responsibility given to spiritual leaders. There is a danger, however, that all believers face when we think about discernment. It is the danger of developing a mindset that lacks generosity and practices a proud exclusiveness in ministry that displeases Christ. 

This Lord’s Day we will listen as Christ takes a question from the apostle John and turns it into an opportunity to teach His men about generosity in ministry. May the Lord teach us to be careful and faithful, but not proud.

     I.   A NARROW VIEW OF FELLOWSHIP (v. 38)
     II.  A BROADER VIEW OF FELLOWSHIP (vv. 39-40)
     III. AN ETERNAL VIEW OF FELLOWSHIP (v. 41)

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

  1. Song of Moses
  2. He Who is Mighty
  3. Christ is Mine Forevermore
  4. We Sing as One
  5. All Glory Be to Christ

Text: Mark 9:30-37
Title: “God’s True Children and True Greatness”

Against the most sobering backdrop imaginable—Christ’s teaching about His own death—the disciples were having an argument about greatness. They were arguing about which one of them was the greatest. Jesus took their argument as an opportunity to teach them about greatness. In that lesson, He also taught them about what God produces when He brings anyone into His kingdom. This Lord’s Day we hear Christ as He teaches us about God’s true children and what is true greatness in God’s sight.

     I. THE AIM OF JESUS (vv. 30-32)
     II. THE AMBITION OF THE DISCIPLES (vv. 33-34)
     III. THE ATTITUDE THAT BELONGS TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD (vv. 35-37)

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

  1. O Holy Night
  2. Come Thou Long Expected Jesus
  3. In Christ Alone
  4. O Lord, My Rock and My Redeemer
  5. In the Name of God

Text: Mark 9:14-29
Title: “A Powerful Lesson in Faith”

This Lord’s Day we witness a desperate father seeking deliverance for his son. From the time his only son was a child (Luke 9:38), he had been tormented by a demon. When the man went to seek Jesus, he found the nine disciples who were not with Christ at His transfiguration. The result of those disciples’ inability to cast out the demon was an encounter with Jesus that imparted powerful lessons about faith. We will examine the miracle under six headings:

  1. CONTROVERSY AT THE FOOT OF THE MOUNTAIN (vv. 14-16)
  2. FAILURE IN A CONFRONTATION WITH EVIL (vv. 17-18)
  3. REBUKE FOR AN UNBELIEVING GENERATION (vv. 19)
  4. COMPASSION FOR A TROUBLED FATHER (vv. 20-24)
  5. DELIVERANCE BY A POWERFUL SAVIOR (vv. 25-27)
  6. INSTRUCTION FOR THE MINISTRY OF DISCIPLES (vv. 28-29)

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

  1. A Day of Glory
  2. What Child is This
  3. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
  4. O Come, O Come Emmanuel
  5. Psalm 126

Text: Mark 9:9-13Title: “After Glory”

Most believers have had a special time in their Christian life that they might refer to as a “mountain top experience.” Maybe it was a weekend retreat, or a ministry camp, or just a specially impacting worship service. It is safe to say, however, that none of us has ever had a mountain top experience like Peter, James, and John when they witnessed the transfiguration. Those three men received a glimpse of kingdom power. They experienced the glory of God’s Son, veiled in humanity, unveiled before their eyes. This Lord’s Day we meet with the instruction that followed that experience. We listen as Jesus teaches His disciples immediately after the glorious experience. What they hear won’t fully dawn on them until after the cross and the resurrection, when they will be prepared to process the message of the transfiguration.

Last week we looked at:

          I. THE SETTING 
          II. THE SIGHT
          III. THE SKITTISH RESPONSE
          IV. THE SINGULAR FOCUS

This week we will examine:

          V. THE SILENCE (vv. 9-10)
          VI. THE SEARCH FOR CLARITY (vv. 11-13)

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

  1. Come All Ye Faithful
  2. Hark the Herald Angels Sing
  3. His Mercy is More
  4. O Lord, My Rock and My Redeemer
