Worship Preparation: April 10, 2016

1. Read the sermon text: Genesis 26:1-35

2. Read the sermon summary: In this passage we see God’s continuing faithfulness to Abraham. And we find an answer to the question of what becomes of the promises for Abraham’s successive generations. Just as God was with Abraham, so he would be with his son of the promise, Isaac. And this is a great comfort to the people of God. For if God has been faithful to keep his promises to his people for thousands of years, what would make us think he would be any less faithful to his people now? This passage draws us up from our momentary trials into the great story of God’s faithfulness. For it is God himself who says through the prophet Malachi, “I the LORD do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.” This faithfulness finds its fullest expression in the person and work of Jesus Christ. For he is the promised son of Abraham through whom all the nations are blessed and through whom we are saved.

3. Read the following song lyrics in relationship to the sermon:

How Rich a Treasure We Possess
How rich a treasure we possess
In Jesus Christ our Lord
His blood our ransom and defense
His glory our reward
The sum of all created things
Are worthless in compare
For our inheritance is Him
Whose praise angels declare

How free and costly was the love
Displayed upon the cross
While we were dead in untold sin
The Sov'reign purchased us
The will of God the Father
Demonstrated through the Son
The Spirit seals the greatest work
The work which Christ has done

How vast and measureless the flood
Of mercy unrestrained
The penalty was paid in full
The spotless Lamb was slain
Salvation what a priceless gift
Received by grace through faith
We stand in robes of righteousness
We stand in Jesus' Name

For Yours is the Kingdom
And the power and the glory
Yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory
Yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory
Amen yeah amen amen
