January 26, 2018 - Preparing for the Lord's Day and Bulletin
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 nation and a royal priesthood, and yet these earthly Nazirites also foreshadowed the true Nazirite, Jesus, who, from birth, was set apart to live a blameless life and make atonement for our sins, even those of the Nazirites. To come prepared for the sermon take time this week to read and to meditate upon Numbers 6:1-21, Hebrews 7:11-28, and Westminster Confession of Faith Chapter 8.
As we gather to worship our loving Father this Lord’s day, we will join our hearts in song, singing the Hymn of Praise “Tell Out, My Soul, the Greatness of the Lord”, the Acclamation of Praise “Before the Throne of God Above” and the Hymn of Response “Jesus, I am Resting, Resting”. Let us come to worship this Sunday prepared to hear God’s Word, to receive it in faith, to love and treasure it in our hearts, and to practice it in our lives that we may continue to glorify and enjoy Him!
If you’re going to be out of town this Sunday, let me encourage you to listen to the sermon online (usually posted by Monday afternoon) or you can download the REPC podcast, which will be delivered to your mobile device.
