Veritas Gathered: Preparing for Sunday – March 2nd, 2014
This weeks text is Genesis 1:26-31. God created man in his image and commanded him to be fruitful and multiply as well as have dominion over all of creation. He, God, then looked at his creation and declared it good. Join us as we consider these truths and how the Gospel of Jesus Christ relates to them.
We are also celebrating baptisms this week, which is an experience that you never want to miss out on!
The bible declares so many truths about God that it can sometimes be overwhelming. That is not a bad thing, however! Spend some time reflecting on what the Psalmist is saying about God and allow yourself to be overwhelmed by it- to be overwhelmed by God’s majesty and holiness.
C: O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens.
L: You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you. When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers— the moon and the stars you set in place— what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them? Yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor. You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority—the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents.
C: O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
– Psalm 8 (NLT)
Check out this list of some of the songs we will be singing together this week:
- “Wait” – A song of exultation speaking of the might of God and his renewing power in our lives!
- “Empty Me Out” – A theologically rich song speaking of our new identity in Christ.
- “In Christ Alone” – It is in no other thing but Christ that we can find security and salvation.
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!
