Veritas Gathered: Preparing for Sunday – November 17th, 2013
This week our sermon will come from Romans 15: 7-13. Paul moves from speaking about the example of Christ to calling his audience to action. He says that because Christ has welcomed them- they should welcome one another! In this passage we will see that Christ became a servant to humanity in order to show the faithfulness and trustworthiness of God the Father. Join us sunday as we look at why, because of Christ and the Holy Spirit, we can have an unfailing hope!
Very often we simply need to be reminded of the fact that God is holy and we are not. This weeks call to worship reminds us of that very fact. The realization that God is holy and before him we stand unworthy is, by itself, terrifying. However, our God is also gracious and full of mercy, which is why He has lovingly imparted the righteousness of Christ upon us! Reflect on this as we await to gather together sunday and let it move you to worship!
L: The LORD reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake.
C: Great is the LORD in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations. Let them praise your great and awesome name—he is holy.
L: The King is mighty, he loves justice—you have established equity; in Jacob you have done what is just and right.
C: Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy.
– Ps 99:1-5
Check out this list of some of the songs we will be singing together this week:
- “Lead Us Back” – A beautifully written song of confession, repentance, and assurance.
- “Sovereign God” – A new song that joyfully exclaims the immeasurable worth and glory of our God who is soveriegn above all things!
- “Praise To The Lord” – This is a song which calls us to complete and utter worship of God regardless of our circumstances
Even though our arrangements might be slightly different, listen through these songs and see the great truths that they speak about our God and then come prepared to sing them out loudly and joyfully as a gathered church.
See you Sunday!
