Worship Preparation: February 2, 2014

Worship Preparation – Sunday, February 2, 2014

1. Ways to use this worship preparation:
• Print it out Friday and place it in your bible for the weekend
• Use it as a family devotion and time of prayer on Saturday evening.

2. Read sermon text: Psalm 150

3. Read sermon summary: As we continue our series "Singing Praises, Receiving Grace", we will study Psalm 150 this week. The Psalm itself is simply calling for exuberant praise. In light of who God is, and what he has done, we ought to employ every means available to praise him. If that is true, then what should our corporate singing be like? How should we join together to praise our God "according to his excellent greatness"? Consider these questions as we approach Sunday.

4. Lord’s Supper: We will be celebrating the Lord’s Supper together this Sunday, as we do the first Sunday of each month. In preparation for this visible celebration of the gospel, please take advantage of this time to consider the state of your soul. Resolve conflicts that you have ignored, repent of sins that you have hidden, and take time to consider the great love of a Savior who has reconciled us to God by his death and resurrection.

5. Consider the songs and their relationship to the sermon:

Come Thou Fount
Come thou fount of every blessing tune my heart to sing thy grace
Streams of mercy never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above;
Praise the mount I'm fixed upon it mount of Gods redeeming love.

Here I raise mine Ebenezer; hither by thy help I'm come;
And I hope, by thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger, wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger, interposed His precious blood.

O to grace how great a debtor daily I'm constrained to be!
Let thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee:
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love;
Here's my heart take it seal it; seal it for thy courts above.

Robert Robinson and John Wyeth

The mountains standing in Your strength
The oceans roaring out Your praise
All creation glorifies Your name

The angels bow before Your throne
The heavens shine for You alone
All creation glorifies Your name
All creation glorifies Your name

Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord
Almighty, Worthy, All the earth is filled
With Your glory, glory
We give You glory, glory

In Your hand You hold the universe
At Your feet the nations of the earth
All creation glorifies Your name
All creation glorifies Your name

Blessing honor, Glory power
All our praise is Yours forever

Pete Kipley and Phil Wickham
