Veritas Gathered: Preparing for Sunday – January 11th, 2015
This week we are continuing our Fruit of the Spirit series! This Sunday we are focusing on Love, Joy, and Peace. The sermon text for this series is Galatians 5:22-23. As it says in Matthew, “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit”. So this week keep the words in the message close and produce good fruit.
L: This is the message we have heard from Him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with Him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
C: If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
—1 John 1:5-9
Check out this list of some of the songs we will be singing together this week:
- “You Alone” – A song that joyfully exalts God and ascribes praise for his gracious and holy nature
- “No Condemnation” – A beautiful song telling you that when in Christ you are no longer condemned for your sins
- “Our Treasure” – A song that speaks to the fact that Jesus satisfies our souls and is worthy of worship
Here is a link to a Spotify playlist. 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.
