Worship Preparation: October 29, 2017

Sunday, October 29, 2017

Read the sermon text: 1 Thessalonians 2:1-8

Read the sermon summary: In the passage we’ll be considering for this Sunday, the Apostle Paul reminds the Thessalonians of when and how he preached the gospel to them. His particular aim is to convey his motivations in preaching the gospel to them. What negative motivations for preaching the gospel do you see in this text? How can Paul’s example here instruct us as we seek to proclaim the gospel to others? How does this passage and Paul’s example ultimately point us to Jesus Christ? As we consider the future of our church, how can this passage lead us to be faithful in the task of evangelism?

Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:

Let Your Kingdom Come
Your glorious cause O God
Engages our hearts
May Jesus Christ be known
Wherever we are
We ask not for ourselves
But for Your renown
The cross has saved us so we pray
Your kingdom come

Chorus
Let Your kingdom come
Let Your will be done
So that ev’ryone might know Your Name
Let Your song be heard ev’rywhere on earth
Till Your sov’reign work on earth is done
Let Your kingdom come

Give us Your strength O God
And courage to speak
Perform Your wondrous deeds
Through those who are weak
Lord use us as You want
Whatever the test
By grace we'll preach Your Gospel till
Our dying breath
