Worship Preparation: February 9, 2014

Worship Preparation – Sunday, February 9, 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 95, Colossians 3:16, Psalm 150

3. Read sermon summary: What we will do this week is consider what songs we ought to sing. As we look back over the considerations we have made in this series, we will draw from those conclusions new insights about what kind of songs we should be singing. If we sing to God because he is worthy or praise, then what kind of songs should we sing? If we are preaching to each other through our songs, then what kind of songs should we sing? If we are supposed to be participating in exuberant praise, then what kind of songs should we sing? Review these three passages with these questions in mind as you prepare for our time together on Sunday morning.

4. Consider the following song and its relationship to the sermon:

How Rich A Treasure We Possess
How rich a treasure we possess
In Jesus Christ our Lord
His blood our ransom and defense
His glory our reward
The sum of all created things
Are worthless in compare
For our inheritance is Him
Whose praise angels declare

How free and costly was the love
Displayed upon the cross
While we were dead in untold sin
The Sov'reign purchased us
The will of God the Father
Demonstrated through the Son
The Spirit seals the greatest work
The work which Christ has done

How vast and measureless the flood
Of mercy unrestrained
The penalty was paid in full
The spotless Lamb was slain
Salvation what a priceless gift
Received by grace through faith
We stand in robes of righteousness
We stand in Jesus' Name

Matt Boswell and Matt Papa

All I Have Is Christ
I once was lost in darkest night
Yet thought I knew the way
The sin that promised joy and life
Had led me to the grave
I had no hope that You would own
A rebel to Your will
And if You had not loved me first
I would refuse You still

But as I ran my hell-bound race
Indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state
And led me to the cross
And I beheld God's love displayed
You suffered in my place
You bore the wrath reserved for me
Now all I know is grace

Hallelujah all I have is Christ
Hallelujah Jesus is my life

Now Lord I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me
O Father use my ransomed life
In any way You choose
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You
