Gathering Preparation 08.14.2016

For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LordI will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God,
and they shall be my people.
-Jeremiah 31.33


As I go through difficult seasons in my life it is easy for me to forget that this promise applies to me-- to us.  I have been grafted into the promises of the children of Abraham. The Spirit has come and written God's law on my heart. I am, together with the church, a member of God's family. We are His people and He is our God. 

Let this truth be what propels us through the rest of the week and on to Sunday in a spirit of worship. 

To practically prepare for Sunday, continue to use the Spotify playlist we put together for you to remind you of the promises of God in those songs. Pay specific attention to:

House of God Forever

Come Ye Sinners

Living in a Land of Death

Nothing but the Blood

O God our Help in Ages Past

All Glory be to Christ


Our sermon text will be I Corinthians 12.1-11.

My prayer for you all this week is that you grow in your affections for Jesus and what He's done for you. I love you all so dearly.
