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:
- The Celebration of God’s Universal Rule (vv. 1-2)
- The Celebration of God’s Sovereign Love (vv. 3-4)
- The Celebration of God’s Ascension to the Throne (vv. 5-7)
- 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:
- Come Thou Almighty King
- His Mercy is More
- You Are Worthy of Your Glory
- O Lord, My Rock and My Redeemer
