Sunday, January 29

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,” – Psalms 103:1–4

These words remind us that the greatest benefits transcend this physical existence.  This Lord’s Day is a grace-shaped opportunity to fasten your joy in God and the rich benefits that are yours in Christ.


Singing:

Some of the songs we plan to sing together are:

You are encouraged to begin listening and learning a new hymn entitled “My Worth Is Not In What I Own.” We will be singing this song soon.


Preaching:

Please pray and ask God to grant you spiritual understanding as you thoughtfully read Galatians 5:1-15. This effort provides worthwhile preparation for the preaching ministry.

  • Do you notice any contrasts between 5:1 and 5:13?
  • According to the Apostle Paul, how should Christian freedom be used?
  • In what ways does this passage draw you to love Christ more?

One more thing: we plan to have a financial update at the end of the service about the first quarter of our fiscal year.

Of course, we “labor in vain unless the Lord builds” (Ps. 127:1).  We must, must, MUST be a praying people.  No matter what, be sure you spend time asking God to build us up together into a greater knowledge of Christ. That is a prayer God delights to answer.

Grace and peace to you in Christ,
