Worship Preparation: April 24, 2016

Sunday, April 24, 2016

1. Read the sermon text: Genesis 28:1-22

2. Read the sermon summary: In this passage, the Lord comforts a lonely Jacob by making promises to him. Promises to bless him and promises to be with him and never leave him. In wonder and amazement, Jacob proclaims that this is the very “house of God.” And yet, it wasn’t really. Rather it was a shadow of God making his home among us in the incarnation of Christ. And it was a shadow of the new heavens and the new earth. Though we will all experience loneliness in this life, we who are in Christ can be assured of God’s unfailing presence with us. And we can look forward to that never-again-lonely experience, when we will hear that loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God” (Rev. 21:3).

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

I Will Glory in My Redeemer
I will glory in my Redeemer
Whose priceless blood has ransomed me
Mine was the sin that drove the bitter nails
And hung Him on that judgment tree
I will glory in my Redeemer
Who crushed the power of sin and death
My only Savior before the holy Judge
The Lamb Who is my righteousness
The Lamb Who is my righteousness

I will glory in my Redeemer
My life He bought my love He owns
I have no longings for another
I'm satisfied in Him alone
I will glory in my Redeemer
His faithfulness my standing place
Though foes are mighty and rush up on me
My feet are firm held by His grace
My feet are firm held by His grace

I will glory in my Redeemer
Who carries me on eagle's wings
He crowns my life with loving kindness
His triumph song I'll ever sing
I will glory in my Redeemer
Who waits for me at gates of gold
And when He calls me it will be paradise
His face forever to behold
His face forever to behold
