This Sunday

This Sunday – March 5th, 2017

Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lord his God.
Psalm 146:5

Each week we gather together to declare that God alone is our help. This is an incredible mercy. Because each day we are tempted to believe and act upon the belief that somehow our help is found in ourselves, other people, or things.

But the good news is that even as we struggle to believe this truth, God’s Spirit is helping us. Every Sunday God’s Spirit is working to strengthen our faith and confirm his Word.

So come ready to receive and ask God that he would enlighten the eyes of our hearts so that we may truly experience the freedom of being God’s children.

Eric will continue our series looking at how we are to respond to current events, and I will lead our times of singing.

There is none like you among the gods, O Lord,
nor are there any works like yours.
All the nations you have made shall come
and worship before you, O Lord,
and shall glorify your name.
For you are great and do wondrous things;
you alone are God.
Teach me your way, O Lord,
that I may walk in your truth;
unite my heart to fear your name.
I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart,
and I will glorify your name forever.
Psalm 86:8-12

You and I are citizens. We have a king, who rules over this world with complete control and in perfect wisdom. Our own feelings of independence are an illusion, fueled by the lie of sin that we can live independent from God and his reign over us.

I say all of this to remind us there is never a moment in our lives or in this world which is outside of God’s control. As we come to worship together this Sunday, we are responding to the gracious invitation from our God to come and behold him. To remember his power and glory. To learn from him. To be changed. We come to be reminded that the God who reigns is the God who purchased us, redeemed us, and is with us.

God’s authority brings us to a place of grateful dependence. He is great, he is good, and he is our life.

Eric will continue our series in how to think through the times that we live in. I will lead our times of singing.

See you there!

“Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.” Psalm 95:2-3

Here is something to consider as we prepare to gather with our church family. God wants to use YOU to encourage and build up this community. God will speak to us through his word, yes. But he also uses his people to demonstrate his grace, love, and care. You (yes you!) are called to be an active participant, both in receiving from the Lord and being used by him as we respond.

How might he do this through you?
– Singing with engagement
– Encouraging a friend
– Reaching out to someone new
– Giving a public prayer or word
– Practically serving someone
– A gracious challenge
The list goes on.

As we prepare to gather, let us pray that God would use us to strengthen his people.

Caleb will lead our times of singing and Curt Allen, pastor at Solid Rock Church in Maryland, will preach from Luke 17:11-19.

“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.”
Isaiah 1:18

Right now, I’m reading through Exodus in my daily Bible reading plan. In Exodus 19 and 20, the Israelites have their first experiences with the power and glory of this God who has just rescued them out of Egypt. Verse after verse describes the preparation needed to consecrate themselves to prepare to meet with God. Once they do meet with him, their response was fear. They were terrified. Because they were confronted with a God who was unlike them: holy, majestic, and powerful.

Each Sunday, when God calls us to gather and worship him, we get to meet with the Lord. One of the most amazing commands of the Bible is the call to ‘with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Heb. 4:6) You and I worship a holy, majestic, and glorious God, who has provided a way that we can meet with him in reverence, yes, but also with confidence and boldness.

Friends, as we gather with our church family to sing, to consider how God has called us to live for his glory, and to remember his death, let us come knowing that God invites us with his mercy. We can celebrate that Jesus has covered our sins with his righteousness. He invites us to experience the joy of salvation, so we can freely follow him with our lives.

This is good news!

“Turn to the earth and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other.” Isaiah 45:22

God invites us to gather together to testify that he is God and there is no other.

In the turmoil and confusion of this day and age, our weekly gathering reminds us that God is in control, and he is working for his glory and for our good.

This Sunday we have the privilege of welcoming 13 individuals who want to commit to be members at Redeemer.

Also, for the next two weeks, Eric is going to preach on how we should think Biblically about the current events and environment that we live in. You’ll have the opportunity to text in questions which he will answer at the end of the sermon. Let’s pray that God would give us clarity where there is confusion and conviction where there is apathy.

See you Sunday!

“Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.” Psalm 42:11

This Sunday we come to praise God together. Why do we celebrate? Because God has revealed himself to be our salvation and our God. He is one who has forever purchased our rescue, and will forever be our protector and strength.

We gather to be reminded of his glory and goodness as we sing, study his word, and take communion together.

I will lead our times of singing, including a new song, and Mike Belamy will preach to us from God’s word.

This Sunday we have the privilege to gather together to sing, study God’s word, and take communion together.

Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”

The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Psalm 46:10-11

As we prepare to gather as a church family this Sunday, let’s be reminded that God is far more great and glorious than we think he is.

Our small thoughts of God do not define him. Our doubts that he isn’t powerful, good, sovereign, or merciful enough are met with the truth of who God has revealed himself to be.

Come to look up and respond to God’s call to us to “be still and know that he is God.”
