Psalm 132

 

Sermon Bible Passage

A song of ascents.

Lord, remember David     and all his self-denial.

He swore an oath to the Lord,     he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob: “I will not enter my house     or go to my bed, I will allow no sleep to my eyes     or slumber to my eyelids, till I find a place for the Lord,     a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

We heard it in Ephrathah,     we came upon it in the fields of Jaar: “Let us go to his dwelling place,     let us worship at his footstool, saying, ‘Arise, Lord, and come to your resting place,     you and the ark of your might. May your priests be clothed with your righteousness;     may your faithful people sing for joy.’”

For the sake of your servant David,     do not reject your anointed one.

The Lord swore an oath to David,     a sure oath he will not revoke: “One of your own descendants     I will place on your throne. If your sons keep my covenant     and the statutes I teach them, then their sons will sit     on your throne for ever and ever.”

For the Lord has chosen Zion,     he has desired it for his dwelling, saying, “This is my resting place for ever and ever;     here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it. I will bless her with abundant provisions;     her poor I will satisfy with food. I will clothe her priests with salvation,     and her faithful people will ever sing for joy.

“Here I will make a horn grow for David     and set up a lamp for my anointed one. I will clothe his enemies with shame,     but his head will be adorned with a radiant crown.”

Psalm 132 NIV

Ephesians 1:15-23 “Three things about prayer”

 

Sermon Bible Passage

Thanksgiving and Prayer

For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you,remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

Ephesians 1:15-23 NIV

Evening Service – Colin Jones

Colin Jones preaches from the book of Psalms

Psalm 114

 

Sermon Bible Passage

When Israel came out of Egypt,     Jacob from a people of foreign tongue, Judah became God’s sanctuary,     Israel his dominion.

The sea looked and fled,     the Jordan turned back; the mountains leaped like rams,     the hills like lambs.

Why was it, sea, that you fled?     Why, Jordan, did you turn back? Why, mountains, did you leap like rams,     you hills, like lambs?

Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord,     at the presence of the God of Jacob, who turned the rock into a pool,     the hard rock into springs of water.

Psalm 114 NIV

Galatians 5:13-26 “Living as free people”

 

Sermon Bible Passage

Life by the Spirit

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.

So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit,you are not under the law.

The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

Galatians 5:13-26 NIV

Colin Jones continues the series in Psalms

Psalm 101

 

Sermon Bible Passage

Of David. A psalm.

I will sing of your love and justice;     to you, Lord, I will sing praise. I will be careful to lead a blameless life—     when will you come to me?

I will conduct the affairs of my house     with a blameless heart. I will not look with approval     on anything that is vile.

I hate what faithless people do;     I will have no part in it. The perverse of heart shall be far from me;     I will have nothing to do with what is evil.

Whoever slanders their neighbor in secret,     I will put to silence; whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart,     I will not tolerate.

My eyes will be on the faithful in the land,     that they may dwell with me; the one whose walk is blameless     will minister to me.

No one who practices deceit     will dwell in my house; no one who speaks falsely     will stand in my presence.

Every morning I will put to silence     all the wicked in the land; I will cut off every evildoer     from the city of the Lord.

Psalm 101 NIV

Galatians 5:1-12 “Free in Christ”

 

Sermon Bible Passage

Freedom in Christ

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all. Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law. You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value.The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

You were running a good race. Who cut in on you to keep you from obeying the truth? That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you. “A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough.” I am confident in the Lord that you will take no other view. The one who is throwing you into confusion, whoever that may be, will have to pay the penalty. Brothers and sisters, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been abolished. As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!

Galatians 5:1-12 NIV
