This blog gives you a glimpse into the upcoming Sunday Gathering. It's an opportunity to read through the passage we'll be studying together, pray through some of the liturgy we'll be using, and listen to a selection of the songs we’ll be singing.
EXODUS - You Shall Not Commit Adultery
As Exodus is a big book we won’t read all of the Bible text in our Sunday gathering. Each week we will give you the full section of Exodus here on the blog for you to read in your own time. This is a great way to prepare your heart to hear from God’s word on a Sunday. We'll be slowing down a little now and taking a week to look at each of the 10 commandments. This week Gary Aston will be preaching to us on adultery from Exodus 20:14.
CALL TO WORSHIP
Awesome and compassionate God, you have loved us with unfailing, self-giving mercy, but we have not loved you. You are a faithful God, yet we are unfaithful, time and time again.
Forgive us for running after other things to find joy and satisfaction, remind us that in doing this we take the cross for granted. Show us, once again, that it cost Jesus his life to save us from our sin.
As you come to us in mercy, we repent in spirit and in truth, admit our sin, and gratefully receive your forgiveness through Jesus Christ, our Redeemer. Amen.
(Adapted from the Worship Sourcebook)
Lead us Back (Sojourn) : A song of confession reminding us that we so often seek security, comfort and the worship of other idols above God. A plea that God would lead us back to life in him.
- In Tenderness He Sought Me (Citizens and Saints): A glorious reminder that whilst we were still sinners, Jesus died for us.
