Preparing for Sunday - April 29, 2018

Hi Shoreliners,

“In the beginning was the word!” What a great start last Sunday to our study in the book of John. This Sunday, we’ll continue in chapter one and hear more from John the Baptist. He correctly states that he was unworthy to even “untie the strap of His sandal.” Our songs this week are focused on the worth of Christ versus our unworthiness. 

Check out what we’ll be singing this week:

Famous One - Chris Tomlin

We’ll start this Sunday with this song of adoration and praise. Taken in part from Psalm 19, it declares the sovereignty and majesty of our God over creation. It encourages us to thank the Lord for all He has done and all He will do in the future. His name is great and his heart is kind!

Cannons - Phil Wickam

This song goes along well with our theme this week. When confronted with the beauty of this world and what God has done, we can’t help but feel small & unworthy. That’s where this encouraging line comes in - “I’m so unworthy yet still you love me”. What a glorious truth! Amen!

Come Thou Fount - Robert Robinson (arr. by David Crowder)

God’s amazing grace flows to us through Jesus, not only in our salvation, but in every single good gift we receive from his hand. James writes, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change” (James 1:17)." This quote is taken from a great article on this hymn from Desiring God. You can check out the whole article here - https://www.desiringgod.org/articles/come-thou-fount-of-every-blessing

My Jesus, I Love Thee - William Ralph Featherstone

1 John 4:10 says, “In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” It’s because we have this assurance of God’s love & salvation that we can sing this hymn. We love will love him in life, love him in death, and praise him as long as he lends us breath!

Revelation Song - Kari Jobe

We’ll finish our service by once again declaring the worth of Christ! He is the worthy lamb who was slain and holy, holy is He!
