On Sunday we discussed who was worthy of worship. Idols are constantly vying for our attention and promising that they can give us what we want, but ultimately they fall flat. Only God can satisfy our deepest needs and desires, and only God can save us from our sins. God alone is worthy of worship.
This week, consider where you are looking for satisfaction and salvation. And worship God, who alone is worthy of praise.

PREPARING TO HEAR
This Sunday we will hear from Hosea chapter 13. We will see how Hosea pulls back the curtain and exposes the folly of idolatry, while at the same time pointing to God as worthy of our worship and praise. To prepare for this Sunday, read Hosea 13 and think about the following questions:
- Where do you look for satisfaction?
- What reasons does Hosea 13 give us to worship God?
- How does Paul use Hosea 13:14 when he quotes it in 1 Corinthians 15:55?
- How can we reconcile God's loving character with the brutal descriptions of judgment in verse 16?
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.
