OCTOBER 11, 2017
"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.
Our Call to Worship is 2 Corinthians 8:9.
9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.
What grace and mercy God has for us! God humbly surrendered to death on the cross so that we could gain everything in Christ. We were helpless and poor, unable to atone for our sins and Christ intervened and paid for our sins out of his immense riches. This is the God that we get to serve and worship together! Let’s come ready to be humbled and encouraged by the gospel as we behold the good character of our God.
Praise God for his gracious character, that he would become poor to give us the riches of the gospel.
Pray that we would pursue humility and godliness.
Here are the songs we are singing this week. We chose these songs because they show us how God’s character is worthy of our worship and obedience.
