Last week we considered the preeminence of Christ. He is over all and in all, and all things were created by him for his glory. Jesus' nature reflects the fact that he is supreme over all, as he is truly God. The truth of Christ's supremacy is denied by many religions and worldviews, and is often functionally denied in our every day lives as we place ourselves or other competing worries or desires above him. This week, reflect on the one who is truly over all things and glorify the worthy Christ.
Listen to "The Preeminence of Christ Pt 1"
PREPARING TO HEAR
This week we will consider the preeminence of Christ again. One week just doesn't do it justice! Colossians 1:18-20 focuses on Christ's supremacy displayed in salvation. Spend some time this week reading these verses and consider the following questions:
- What does it mean that Christ is the head of the church?
- How does this passage help me shape my worldview?
- What does it mean that Christ is the firstborn from the dead?
- How does the peace of God affect our lives?
Please take a moment in preparation for this Sunday to pray for those God will bring to the service, both believers and unbelievers, and that he will work in their hearts to understand the Scripture and apply it to their hearts. Pray for JD as he prepares and proclaims God's Word, and for the Holy Spirit to work through his words and in the hearts of all who hear. Pray that God would defeat our enemy's attempts to hinder the proclamation of the gospel at Redemption Hill.
PREPARING TO SING
Below are the songs we will 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.
