Worship Preparation: January 2, 2022

Sunday, January 2, 2022
 
Read the sermon texts: John 14:6-11; Acts 17:31; Galatians 2:15-16
 
Read the sermon summary: Years ago, Oprah Winfrey summed up what many people believe today concerning the path to God, saying, “There couldn’t possibly just be one way!” Like the bold woman in Oprah’s audience that day, we confess that there is only one way to God and that is through Jesus. But what is it that makes Christianity unique among the other world religions? In our sermon for this Sunday, we’ll be kicking off our “Big Questions” sermon series answering that very question. In preparation for the sermon consider the following questions: What would you say makes Christianity different from other faiths? Why might someone considered it arrogant to claim that Christianity is the only truth faith? Why might some people conclude that all religions are essentially after the same things?
 
Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:
 
How Deep The Father's Love For Us
How deep the Father's love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory
 
Behold the Man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished
 
I will not boast in anything
No gifts no pow’r no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
Why should I gain from His reward
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
