Preparing for the Lord's Day
EXILES IN A FOREIGN LAND
1 Peter Sermon Series
In our passage for this Sunday, the Apostle Peter exalts Jesus Christ as the living stone, the cornerstone, and the precious stone chosen by God. To the world, Christ is the stone that the builders rejected and the stone that causes men to stumble. Yet to us Christ is the One Whom we worship and pursue. And through our verses, Peter affirms that He is building us up like living stones into His spiritual house. To come prepared for worship, please be in prayer! Meditate upon 1 Peter 2:4-8 and ponder “spiritual sacrifices acceptable God” (v. 5) by considering Acts 10:4, Romans 12:1, Romans 15:15-16, Ephesians 5:1-2, and Hebrews 13:15-16.
As we gather to worship the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit this Lord’s day, we will join our hearts in song, singing the Hymn of Praise “Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise,” the Acclamation of Praise “My Hope is Built on Nothing Less,” and the Hymn of Response “Christ Is Made the Sure Foundation.” Please also look forward to receiving our newest members as well as our students who have just walked through their confirmation! 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!
