Preparing for the Lord's Day

As I write this post there is no clear winner of the 2020 Presidential election. It looks to be decided by the most razor-sharp of margins in a few battleground states. However, as Christians, there is no question as to who will ultimately be in control for the next four years. Whatever the outcome we know that the Lord Jesus is the King of kings. That is not to say that political outcomes are not important. Nor that we should ignore or denigrate politics. They are important. Nevertheless, they are temporally important and can become an idol to both individuals and the church. In our Psalm for this Sunday, we will see that as the people of God we are called to bring the judgment of God upon the nations through our act of worship. What this means is that the worshipping community is to take up the weapon of worship to establish Christ’s kingdom. While politics are important, the power that they afford does not lead to salvation so often promised by campaigns. Rather Christ alone will bring the salvation this world needs. Therefore every Christian is called to take up the weapon of worship to see the kingdom of Christ established. To come prepared for the sermon, take time this week to read and to meditate upon Psalm 149, Exodus 15:1-21, Psalm 2, Ephesians 6:10-20, and Revelation 5:9-10

This Sunday our Sanctuary Choir will sing at the 11:00 service, "Jesus, Thou Joy of Loving Hearts" and our hymns include “Holy, Holy, Holy,”Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven,” and “Onward Christian Soldiers
