Preparing for Sunday - September 16, 2018

Hi Shoreliners,

John MacArthur recently said, “The heart can only go as high in worship as it can go deep in theology.” That’s why it is important to study the word verse by verse, especially the “hard sayings” that we learned about last week. This Sunday we’ll get in to chapter seven and continue our study together.

Come ready to sing the following songs:

Forever - Chris Tomlin

Psalm 148 tells us that all of the universe is involved in praising the Lord. We’ll start by praising Him for his faithfulness, His strength and His committed love.

Hymn of the Ages - Rend Collective

As we continue singing, we’ll turn our praise to Jesus as we sing about the author of salvation, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is the preeminent one throughout all of history, and every knee will bow in worship!

Your Name - Paul Baloche

Our last two songs, before we worship by hearing God’s word, focus on exalting Christ for who He is and what He’s done. This song by Paul Baloche is taken from Acts 4:12, “And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Behold our God - Sovereign Grace

In this song, we worship God for His shear majesty and greatness. Taken from Isaiah 40:12-17, it asks us questions that we would not dare to answer except with “Only You, Lord!” We are called to consider and adore Him, there is nothing that can compare to Him!

All Glory be to Christ - Kings Kaleidoscope

We introduced this song last week. It goes along well with the book of John as we study the “I AM” statements. Jesus is the great I AM, He is faithful and true. When we seek to live our lives centered in His will, we know we can have confidence that everything will “work together for good”. It’s when we look to do things in our own strength that “no legacy will survive”. When we have this perspective we can truly say “All glory be to Christ our King!”
