Worship Preparation – Sunday, June 24, 2012

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 text for Sunday: Col. 3:1-4 (ESV).
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

3. Read sermon summary:
There are many things that call for our attention and affection. The world around us is running hard after the things of the world, and Paul is instructing us in this text to set a new direction. We have a new identity in Christ. We have been raised with him. Therefore, we should set our hearts and minds on things above, not on things that are on earth. Paul wants us to cast our eyes on what lies ahead, our future with God.

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

Behold Our God

Who has held the oceans in His hand?
Who has numbered every grain of sand?
Kings and nations tremble at His voice
All creation rises to rejoice

Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King, nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him!

Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of His words?
Who can teach the one who knows all things?
Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds?

Who has felt the nails upon His hands
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man?
God eternal, humbled to the grave
Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign

You will reign forever!

At the Cross

We are singing songs of redemption,
We are Christ's possession bought with the precious blood
He’s given us pardon and forgiveness; we are freed to love Him
Bought with the precious blood

At the cross, wrath was taken away,
Christ was in our place
Oh what marvelous grace
At the cross, Justice was supplied,
By the blood of Christ,
Forever we will praise

Amazing pity, grace made known to me,
Love beyond all I conceived
Bought with the precious blood
Righteous, now is how He looks at me,
Aroma of Christ to God from me,
Bought with the precious blood

Burdens were lifted away
God caused this heart to awake, to his glorious grace
