September 15, 2017 - Preparing For The Lord’s Day
Have you ever been trapped? Maybe when you were a child you got your head stuck in the banister. Or, as an adult you have been locked in a room by accident or stuck in traffic for hours. It is a rather helpless feeling to be trapped. To know that unless someone comes to rescue you, you have no hope of freedom. This week we will continue our study of Colossians focusing on Colossians 2:13-15. Here the Apostle Paul explains that we are trapped, but that Christ has come to save us from all our captors by His life, death and resurrection.
Reading: Colossians 2:8-15, Ephesians 2:1-9, 1 Peter 1:3 and Westminster Shorter Catechism #25, #26.
As we gather to worship our Savior, we will join our hearts in song, singing the Hymn of Praise “To God be the Glory”, the Acclamation of Praise “There is a Redeemer”, and the Hymn of Response “Before the Throne of God Above”. 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!
If you’re going to be out of town this Sunday, let me encourage you to listen to the http://www.rivermont.org/sermons (usually posted by Monday afternoon) or you can download the REPC podcast, which will be delivered to your mobile device.
