This week in preparation reflect on these things

Scripture 

Call to Worship - Psalm 47:5-9

 "God has gone up with a shout,
    the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.
 Sing praises to God, sing praises!
    Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
 For God is the King of all the earth;
    sing praises with a psalm!

 God reigns over the nations;
    God sits on his holy throne.
 The princes of the peoples gather
    as the people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
    he is highly exalted!"

Scripture Reading (Sermon Text) - Psalm 2

"Why do the nations rage
    and the peoples plot in vain?
 The kings of the earth set themselves,
    and the rulers take counsel together,
    against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying,
 “Let us burst their bonds apart
    and cast away their cords from us.”

 He who sits in the heavens laughs;
    the Lord holds them in derision.
 Then he will speak to them in his wrath,
    and terrify them in his fury, saying,
 “As for me, I have set my King
    on Zion, my holy hill.”

 I will tell of the decree:
The Lord said to me, “You are my Son;
    today I have begotten you.
 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,
    and the ends of the earth your possession.
 You shall break them with a rod of iron
    and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.”

 Now therefore, O kings, be wise;
    be warned, O rulers of the earth.
 Serve the Lord with fear,
    and rejoice with trembling.
 Kiss the Son,
    lest he be angry, and you perish in the way,
    for his wrath is quickly kindled.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him."

Liturgy

There is no planned Liturgy this week, but we encourage you to take time to prepare for our gathering in prayer this week. Pray for the gospel to transform your neighbor, your community, our church body, and you as you encounter Christ in worship this Sunday.
