“Oh come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the LORD is the great God, and the great King above all gods.” ~Psalm 95:1-3
What a privilege to come and worship the Great I Am together! While every service isn’t exactly the same, we usually have some opening Scripture, announcements, a memory verse, singing, prayer requests and prayer time, and a sermon from God’s Word. May the Lord draw each one closer to Himself and work in powerful ways through His Spirit and Word!
This Sunday we plan to continue our sermon series about the Church; Lord willing, in this series we will cover the cause and the purpose of the Church, its structure and integrity, its purity and its power, and the roles and responsibilities of men and women. Our expected passage this week is Ephesians 5:22-33 in a sermon titled “Submission, Love, and Honoring Christ: The High Calling of God In Marriage – Part 1″. As we dig into this section of God’s Word, we will be challenged to throw off the old way of thinking and replace it with God’s desire for wives, husbands, and the Body of Christ. The commands contained in this passage (and others like it) are as difficult and impossible for finite human beings as all of the commands of God, but we who are in Christ have been equipped, with the Spirit of God and the grace of God, to live holy and abundant lives in Him. May our submission to Him overflow in our submission to each other, may our love for Him and His love for us produce a deep and intimate love for each other, and may He get all the glory and honor that He is due!
September’s Memory Verse: “Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” ~Ephesians 5:17
