Last week we learned from the example of first century Church members to see what kind of people God uses. He uses those who commit, labor, endure, use their resources, and embrace their calling. All these traits are only possible by the grace of God working in our lives.
Spend some time thanking God for his grace in your own life and asking for more grace to grow in your usefulness to him.
Listen to The People God Uses
PREPARING TO HEAR
This Sunday is our final sermon from the book of Colossians in this series. JD will wrap up his series by addressing Colossians 4:18, which concludes the book on a note of grace. In order to prepare for Sunday, take some extra time and read the entire book of Colossians. As you read, think about the following:
- Where is grace evident in Colossians?
- What was Paul's purpose for writing Colossians?
- Why is Paul's imprisonment mentioned multiple times in the letter?
- How has God's grace been evident in your own life?
Let's pray that God's word is clearly proclaimed and received on Sunday. Pray for believers to be encouraged and strengthened, for unbelievers to be drawn to Christ, and for God to be glorified in all we do.
PREPARING TO SING
Below are the songs we will be singing together on Sunday. Use this as a resource to learn unfamiliar songs, to meditate on Christ-centered truth throughout the week, and teach your children songs that will fill their minds and shape their hearts.
If you haven't already, make sure to listen to our new song, His Mercy is More. We are excited to learn it together Sunday morning, and having people who have heard it already will be helpful to the entire body.
