"Getting Ready for Sunday" is a resource we provide to help the church look ahead to the upcoming Sunday. We want to prepare well for gathering together by reading God’s word, praying, and singing.
This week we are beginning our new sermon series “Multiply: a Journey Through the Book of Acts.”
We are looking at Acts 1:1-11 and seeing how incarnational living is embodying the mission and the message of Jesus.
Our Call to Worship is Psalm 29:1-2.
Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.
The object of our focus is the object of our worship. Whatever dominates our outlook, drives our thoughts, or holds our attention is the thing that we serve and worship. Psalm 29 calls us to worship God by having our vision of the world and our hearts dominated by the glory of God. As we look to the glory of God we worship him “in the splendor of holiness.” This means when our hearts are ruled by the glory of God we get to enjoy the riches of his goodness, justice, and perfection. God’s glory is so very good for us!
Read Psalm 29:1-2 and pray that God would:
1. Draw our eyes and hearts to him.
2. Set us free from the things that draw our attention away from God.
Here are the songs we are singing this week. We chose these songs because they remind us of God’s heart to seek and save the lost and proclaim his power to bring many to himself.
Here is last week's sermon in case you missed it.
