Worship Preparation: May 31, 2020

Read the sermon text: Galatians 3:1-9
Read the sermon summary: Yes, we’re saved by grace alone through faith alone. But after coming to Christ, how our salvation be carried to completion? In this passage Paul continues arguing that faith is the instrument not only by which we’re saved, but also by which our salvation will be brought to completion. The public portrayal of Christ crucified should be enough to ground the Galatians in the graciousness of the gospel. Further, he shows that the idea of receiving the favor of God by faith is nothing new. In fact, this good news was preached long ago to Abraham, the man of faith. Contrary to what the Judaizers are teaching, it is those of faith, not those of the law, who receive the blessing of God. In preparation for the sermon consider the following questions: How many questions does Paul ask in this passage? What is his purpose in asking these questions? What does it mean that “Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified”?
Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:
Behold Our God
Who has held the oceans in His hands
Who has numbered every grain of sand
Kings and nations tremble at His voice
All creation rises to rejoice
Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him
Who has given counsel to the Lord
Who can question any of His words
Who can teach the One who knows all things
Who can fathom all His wondrous deeds
Who has felt the nails upon His hands
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man
God eternal humbled to the grave
Jesus Savior risen now to reign 

You will reign forever
(Let Your glory fill the earth)

You will reign forever
(Let Your glory fill)
