Preparation for Worship: Sunday, November 19, 2017

John 10:14–15 ESV, “I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.”

We worship our Good Shepherd.  He knows his sheep and he laid down his life for his sheep.  What wondrous love we experience from our Good Shepherd!  Come and worship.


Singing:

The voices of the church are the most important instruments in our music ministry. Singing together is one way we obey Scripture’s commands to encourage and exhort one another. Get ready to sing!


Preaching:

The expository sermon will be preached from Psalm 18. Please prepare yourself to grow in the grace of God by reading through the Psalm before Sunday. Before you read, ask God to open your heart to God’s Word and God’s Word to your heart.

  • How does Psalm 18 strengthen your faith in God?
  • How does Psalm 18 humble you before God?

Pray:

Be sure to pray about the Lord’s Day.  We need more than a gathering of people.  We need God’s powerful Word by and with God’s Spirit to transform us to be more like Jesus.  Ask God to accomplish his perfect work in us.

Psalms 18:30 ESV, “This God—his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.”
