Rejoice? Always?

September 27, 2020 Speaker: Tom Jones Series: General Sermons

Topic: Expository Passage: Philippians 4:4–4:7


September 27, 2020 at 1:00 pm

Worship of the Triune God is our most important duty.  John 4:23-24 says that God seeks those who worship Him in spirit and truth.  As you worship today, purpose to enter fully into the praise offered by singing, in joyful giving of tithes and offerings, in prayer, and in carefully listening to God speak through the reading and preaching of His Word.  May our sovereign Lord receive glory as you actively worship Him.

Please use this time to set your hearts on Christ and pray for the Word, our worship, and that holiness and reverence will be known among us.


Call to Worship*                                                          Psalm 33:18-22

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, that he may deliver their soul from death and keep them alive in famine.  Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.  For our heart is glad in him because we trust in his holy name.  Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.

What is the Lord’s Supper?


The Lord’s Supper is a sacrament of the new testament, wherein, by giving and receiving bread and wine according to the appointment of Jesus Christ his death is showed forth; and they that worthily communicate feed upon his body and blood, to their spiritual nourishment and growth in grace; have their union and communion with him confirmed; testify and renew their thankfulness, and engagement to God, and their mutual love and fellowship with each other, as members of the same mystical body.

Preparation for Confession of Sin                  Romans 6:12-13

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions.  Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. 

Confession of Sin

Assurance of Pardon                                              Romans 5:17

For if, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.
