Worship Preparation: January 12, 2014

Worship Preparation – Sunday, January 12, 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

3. Read sermon summary: This week we will begin a four part series on singing in the church. I want to think together about why we sing and what we gain in singing. This week we will be thinking specifically about why we sing. Psalm 95 answers that question beautifully in two different ways. We sing because God is worthy of singing and because it is the only appropriate response to his great kindness to us.

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

Great Are You Lord
You give life You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope You restore
Ev'ry heart that is broken
And great are You Lord

It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise
We pour out our praise
It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only

And all the earth will shout Your praise
Our hearts will cry these bones will sing
Great are You Lord

Jason Ingram, Leslie Jordan, and David Leonard

Holy
What heart could hold the weight of Your love
And know the heights of Your great worth
What eyes could look on Your glorious face
Shining like the sun

You are holy holy holy
God most high and God most worthy
You are holy holy holy
Jesus You are Jesus You are

Your name alone has pow'r to raise us
Your light will shine when all else fades
Our eyes will look on Your glorious face
Shining like the sun
Who is like You God

Who shall we say You are
You're the living God
Who shall we say You are
You're the Great I Am
The highest name of all
You're all You say You are

And You will come again in glory
To judge the living and the dead
All eyes will look on Your glorious face
Shining like the sun
Who is like You God

Jason Ingram, Jonas Myrin, and Matt Redman
