Preparing for Worship 6.24.18

 

facebook coverThis Sunday we will be looking at the first Psalm which along with the second Psalm stands as a kind of introduction to the rest of the Psalms. This Psalm displays for us the blessings of living a righteous life but leaves us asking who is the man who is able to do this? We hope you will plan to join us as we sing, pray, confess and celebrate together the goodness of God:

Empty Me Out / Liz Vice

Oh Great Is Our God / Brian Eichelberger

Good Good Father / Chris Tomlin

Jesus, I Come / William Sleeper & Greg Thompson

Beautiful Savior (All My Days) / Stuart Townend

We know that Jesus going to the Cross appeared to be a win for the Kingdom of evil but there was another part of the story waiting to be revealed. Join us this Sunday as we see how the Psalmist helps us to not be caught up in appearances but to see as God sees and to sing as Jesus sings in trust and hope not in envy:

I Sing the Mighty Power of God / Isaac Watts

You Oh Lord Are My Refuge / Cheri Keaggy

He Is Exalted / Twila Paris

Upon A Life / Indelible Grace

I Want Jesus to Walk With Me / Traditional Spiritual

On Jordan’s Stormy Banks / Christopher Miner

This Summer we will gather together to hear from the Psalms. The Psalms speak to us in the midst of the competing voices of music, movies, commercials, news sources, etc., but this also tells us about the important function of Sunday mornings  in our lives.  The psalms were compiled for corporate worship, because corporate worship is not just a place to express our hearts/feelings before God, it is also and equally a place to have our hearts and therefore our fundamental dispositions toward God, us, the world—real life—shaped, formed, molded according to Truth.  If we don’t feel like what we’re singing or saying, we ought to.  We ought to pray for the Spirit’s work in our lives to shape us to want to say with conviction, “I believe in God the Father Almighty…” to pray “Our Father who us in heaven…” or to sing, “Oh Love that will not let me go…” The Psalms are words about Jesus from Jesus and as we listen our hearts will come to see and hear him in deeper ways and and to experience life more wholistically or what is know as Shalom.

Come join us as we gather this week to hear and be shaped by the Psalms.

O The Deep Deep Love of Jesus / Samuel Trevor Francis

Abide With Me / Henry Lyte & Justin Smith

How Deep the Father’s Love For Us / Stuart Townend

Come Ye Sinners / Joseph Hart & Brooks Ritter

How do we demonstrate courage and continue to live as Christians even when our very lives are threatened? Is it possible that trusting in the faithfulness of God can help us to remain courageous in the face of difficulty?

Forever Reign / Jason Ingram & Reuben Morgan

As we look at passages like the one before us today we have to confess that there can be a lot of confusion about God’s faithfulness and our walking in obedience and faith. Daniel 1:8-20 gives us great insight into how we see these two things merge in the person of Jesus. Join us as we gather to worship and praise God singing the following songs:

O Church Arise / Keith & Kristyn Getty

Let Us Love And Sing And Wonder / Laura Taylor

Holy Holy Holy / Reginald Heber & John Bykes

Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah / William Williams & Jeremy Casella

We Will Feast In The House of Zion / Sandra McCracken
