Below is a brief review of our meeting on Sunday, followed by projection from the message, as well a few discussion questions for Community Group or personal study this week.
Bruce Robertson opened our time together with a Call to Worship.
We sang All Creatures of Our God and King, Grace Unmeasured, and He Will Hold Me Fast.
Chris let the pastoral prayer and Bob Shanks read the scripture for the day's message, Psalm 18.
Josh honored Daniel Crichigno and Korina Reap, a newly engaged couple from our church. He then preached the last message in our miniseries, Songs of the Savior, "Faithful One". To listen to the message again, visit our Audio Resources page.
After the message, we sang One Thing Remains and He's Always Been Faithful.
Josh announced the upcoming Day of Prayer on January 16th and closed our time with a benediction.
Projection from the message:
- Past faithfulness revealed
- Future faithfulness promised
- A response solicited
"Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." - Lamentations 3:22-23
"Your faithfulness continues through all generations." - Psalm 119:90
"For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever." - Psalm 117:2
"Remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ." - Ephesians 2:12-13
1. When David felt the weight of suffering, what did he do? What results when one cries out for help from the Lord instead of only turning to friends for comfort?
2. How do we see God's faithfulness expressed to David in Psalm 18?
3. Why does God delight in our righteousness? How is this possible when we are sinful and God is holy?
4. David was confronted by enemies who were too mighty for him. But, not too mighty for the God he served. The same God's faithfulness is available to us today. What "enemies" did you face last year that God saved you from? Looking into 2016, from what enemies do you need deliverance?
