Thank you for joining with us to worship together through praying and singing, and through hearing and engaging with God’s Word.
Have someone lead your group in a prayer of adoration, exalting and glorifying God for who He is. You may use this prayer as a guide.
Heavenly Father, You are the Sovereign God of the universe. All things are in Your hands, and nothing falls outside of your grasp. All that You purpose to do, is done. Your faithfulness endures to all generations; you have established the earth, and it stands fast. We entrust our lives to You, Lord, from the beginning to the end. We ask that you fill us with Your Spirit today as we worship and exalt You.
Worship: Join your group in worshipping the Lord as you watch these videos. The lyrics are on the screen. As you sing, focus on God and His glorious attributes. Sing to Him and give Him the praise He deserves.
Sermon: Listen as Brother Ty shares on Phil.1:3-8 and reflects on God who is Faithful to the End. Open your heart to God’s Word and be prepared for reflection, discussion and response.
Reflect on these questions and discuss with your family, friends and/or GCG:
1) What is keeping you from sharing the Gospel with others, or with listening to others that you may point them to the Gospel? How can you be a better listener and a bolder evangelist?
2) Is there anything you are withholding (time, talents, treasures) from that you feel the Lord is calling you to give to support the work of the Gospel? How can you give that over to the Lord in faith?
3) Are there any comforts and conveniences that are distracting you from the advancement of God’s Kingdom? How can you surrender these over to the Lord?
Have someone pray a prayer of confession for the group. You may use this prayer as a guide:
Lord Jesus, we have failed to honor You and keep Your commands. We deny You with our words and actions, and because of this we deserve Your judgments. But you are the founder and perfecter of our faith, and for the joy that was set before You endured the cross, despising the shame, and You are seated at the right hand of the throne of God. You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. Your faithfulness is our salvation. Thank You Jesus for Your deliverance from sin and death by the power of Your name.
Closing Prayer: Have someone in your group close in a prayer of supplication and asking the Spirit to transform us by His grace. You may use this prayer as a guide.
Holy Spirit, empower us to be witnesses to all the earth of the good news that salvation can be found in Christ alone. Help us to open our ears to our neighbors so that we can point them to the only hope which is the Gospel. Help us to support the work of the Gospel by giving our time, talents and treasures to the work of ministry. Change our hearts to surrender even our very lives for Your sake, just as You did for ours. In Jesus name, Amen.
