Worship Preparation: December 5, 2021

Sunday, December 5, 2021
 
Read the sermon text: Acts 17:1-15

Read the sermon summary: Where were you on September 11, 2001? I remember being in a bookstore as we got news that the plane had hit the first tower. We watched in horror as the second plane crashed. That day turned our world upside down. The reality of the day changed our country, and lives of many, many people forever. In our passage for this Sunday, the opponents of Paul and Silas charge them with turning the world upside down, “acting against the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus” (Acts 17:7). They unwittingly speak the truth about Jesus. As the King who has come down from heaven, he turns the world upside down. However, he is not the kind of king they are familiar with, but one who died for sinners and rose from the dead. Consider the following questions in preparation for the sermon: In what ways has Jesus as King turned the world upside down? What is the contrast between how some in Thessalonica received the word versus those in Berea?
 
Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:
 
Lamb Of God
You came from heaven's throne
Acquainted with our sorrow
To trade the debt we owe
Your suff'ring for our freedom
 
Chorus
The Lamb of God in my place
Your blood poured out my sin erased
It was my death You died I am raised to life
Hallelujah the Lamb of God
 
My name upon Your heart
My shame upon Your shoulders
The pow'r of sin undone
The cross for my salvation

There is no greater love
There is no greater love
The Savior lifted up
There is no greater love
