Weekly Update - September 22, 2019

DNA 2 Series.jpg

<September 22>

This week we’ll be continuing in our series, “DNA: A Series on Who We Are” that focuses on our purpose: We exist to display the greatness of Jesus, through proclaiming the gospel of God’s kingdom, pursuing Christ in community, and participating in God’s mission.

Rayshawn will be preaching from Romans 12:9-13. Last week’s sermon can be heard here.

We want to encourage you to take a moment this week as you prepare for our time together on Sunday by reading and praying through the passages. 

Consider thinking through these four questions as you read and pray. 

  1. How can I adore God from this passage?

  2. What sin does this passage lead me to confess?

  3. How does this passage help me to thank Jesus?

  4. From this passage, in what ways can I ask God's Spirit to help me this week?

Songs We'll Be Singing Together

Because Sunday morning is a time and space where we come together around God's word, we want to come expectant and prepared to gather with God's people. An additional way we want to encourage this is by providing the songs we'll be singing together in advance.

  1. Blessed Be Your Name

  2. I Will Sing of My Redeemer

  3. O Great God

  4. Before The Throne of God Above

  5. O How Good It Is

Weekly Resources

Here are some resources that our elders recommend checking out this week. Please feel free to use them as discipleship opportunities to discuss with one another.

What You Share When You Show Christian Hospitality “Hardly anything is more characteristic of Christian love than hospitality. Through the ministry of hospitality we share the things we value most: family, home, financial resources, food, privacy, and time. In other words, we share our lives.”

The Ministry of Presence The local church doesn’t need people of outsized talents or rare abilities as much as it needs normal people with full-out commitment. Your church and my church can thrive only when there is a dedicated core who make it their mission to be there, to make their main ministry the ministry of presence.

How Long? So we continue to pray. We weep with those who weep. We seek out and reach out our hands to our struggling brothers and sisters. We don’t ignore the suffering around us, but we live with the hope that makes every suffering grow impossibly dim. All things will be made new, and it will be far more beautiful than the most creative human mind can begin to imagine.

5 Biblical Encouragements For Depressed Believers if you look to Christ and listen to the promises of God, your faith and hope will be strengthened as you wait on him. And if you lean on the love and care of others who are trying to help, the Lord will work his sovereign plan for his glory and your good—even through the perplexing trial of depression.

The Offensively Ordinary Steps To Godliness The pursuit of holiness, then, is both easier and harder than many of us imagine: Easier because our growth in grace often happens gradually, one small step at a time. Harder because sanctification has now invaded all of life. Holiness is hidden in offensively ordinary tasks, and those tasks are all around us.

You Need Gospel Community Dear reader, my heart for you and for all those who’ve professed allegiance to the gospel of Christ, is that their gospel-community, whatever and wherever that is, would become ever-increasingly important and vital to their spiritual health. You must understand and be made to realize, by the influence of the Holy Spirit, that you need others. You weren’t made to “do life” on your own. You need community. Your spiritual health is dependent upon it!

5 Reasons Why Our Work Matters To God The gospel changes the way we see our work. It adds a newfound significance. It elevates us from hum drum, cynical employees to servants of the King. Every day may not feel like heaven, but every day at the job matters in heaven.

An Elevator Pitch For Church Membership Is church membership in the Bible? Show me a Christian in the Bible (other than the Ethiopian eunuch, who is in the middle of a desert) who is not committed to a local church. Throughout the entire New Testament, believers unite their professions and their lives together.

How To Stop Praying The Same Old Things One of the reasons Jesus prohibited the mindless repetition of prayers is because that’s exactly the way we’re prone to pray. Although I don’t recite intentionally memorized prayers, my own tendency is to pray basically the same old things about the same old things. And it doesn’t take long before such prayers fragment the attention span and freeze the heart of prayer.
