March 9, 2018 - Preparing for the Lord's Day and Bulletin

Preparing for the Lord's Day What is your favorite thing to grumble about? I think that we all have something that truly gets under our skin. Something that we feel compelled to complain about. Maybe it is traffic or bad grammar. We grumble about our government or our families. In Numbers 11, the people of Israel begin to grumble about their situation and their food. Trav...

Preparing for the Lord's Day Our sermon series through Numbers is called, "The Journey Home." However, over the last eight sermons, Israel hasn't gone anywhere. They haven't taken a journey. They have only been prepared for their journey. As we continue in chapter nine and through chapter ten, Israel finally begins their journey to the land of Canaan. The command to march...

Preparing for the Lord's Day If we are saved by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, how were people saved prior to the coming of Christ? This is a very common question. And it has received several different answers throughout the years. Nevertheless, the consistent answer of God's Word is that the only way to the Father is through the Son. Faith in the saving work of God in C...

Preparing for the Lord's Day To represent one's country in the Olympics is one of the greatest honors an athlete can achieve. This week, many of us have watched as competitors in skiing, skating and other winter sports have sought to win gold, not just for themselves, but for their country. While only one person wins the cross-country skiing event, the achievement is coun...

Preparing for the Lord's Day Numbers chapter 7 can read a bit like a year-end giving receipt; repetitive details of who gave what to whom. Over the past few weeks we have received an accounting of all the charitable gifts that we have given in 2017 so that we can claim them as deductions. Yet more than a tax deduction, these year-end statements are a good witness of our a...

Preparing for the Lord's Day It may be the one passage of Numbers that you have memorized. Many of us have heard it for years at the end of worship services as the pastor gives the benediction. "May the Lord bless you and keep you" This week we will turn our attention to Numbers 6:22-27. In this passage we find the Aaronic Blessing, the benediction that the Lord commanded...

Who inspires you? Whose life encourages you and/or convicts you as you grow in Christ? We learn in chapter 6 that for the nation of Israel, those individuals were the Nazirites. These were men and women who made a vow to separate themselves to God in special service. Their service was to encourage and convict the people of Israel who they were meant to be as a holy natio...

We have all experienced entropy. Order naturally devolves into disorder. It happens all around us every day. Rooms don't stay clean. Gardens don't stay maintained. Laundry never comes out of the dryer folded. When we leave things to themselves they quickly fall into chaos. In Chapters 1-4 of Numbers, the Lord has taken great pains to ensure that the people of Israel are or...
