Worship Preparation: January 18, 2014

Worship Preparation – Sunday, January 18, 2015

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: Philippians 3:8-11

3. Read sermon summary: Knowing Christ himself exceeds the worth of all other things. He changes our eternal standing before God and embodies true righteousness as an example for us to follow. Only in relationship to him and his resurrection power, do we have a future hope as we suffer with him.

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 Sovereign 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
