Getting Ready for Sunday June 8th

 June 8th Sermon “Assignment 1:Family”

Your greatest opportunity to reach others begins in your own home.  You have the greatest influence on those who are under your own roof.  Whether you’re a child, a parent or a spouse in your home, you can impact the lives of those you live with each day.  They see who you really are and who Christ is in you.  Through devotions and other family events, you can let God be a part of your daily home life.  Today, discover some simple ways to reach your family.

     We begin a new series entitled “Mission Possible” this Sunday in which we will discover how we can better reach those around us for Christ.  Today’s sermon deals with our first mission which is our family.  Our music today deals with God’s love for us, our love for Him, and the fact that we are His children.  My main thought behind the music for today is the fact that our first motivation in reaching others is that we love our God.

     “Jesus Loves Even Me” & “O How I Love Jesus” are two pretty familiar hymns.  Because of their simplicity, many times these songs are viewed as songs for children.  The good news is we are children of God, so I suppose they apply.  I think they are a good reminder of the fact that Christ loved us before we where born, and we love Him, because He first loved us. 

     “Our Love Is Loud” continues our theme of love for our God.  It’s one thing to say it, but another to show it.  I challenge you this week to make sure your love is loud through actions, and not just the notes and words we sing on Sunday.  I think if we truly make it a point to live out our love this week, when we sing it on Sunday, it will be bigger and louder than ever before.  Take a listen to “Our Love Is Loud” by clicking the link in the chart above.

     I am so excited to be singing “Children of God” this Sunday.  I make sure it plays in my mp3 player every morning when I’m out jogging.  What a reminder to know that I am His Child, and nothing can change that.  One of my favorite things in the world right now is when I see Saigel for the first time after being away for a few hours.  She’ll come running with a big smile saying “DADDY!”  She’s at that age where Mommy and Daddy are big time and she’s not afraid to show her excitement when she sees us.  I think it makes God smile when we come running to Him with excitement claiming our relation to Him.  Take a listen to “Children of God” by clicking the link in the chart above.

     “There Is No Greater Love” follows the same theme as the previous song as we celebrate the fact that God is our Father.

     We will finish up the music portion of the service with the song “Everything to Me” which sums up the entire musical theme for the day.  He is our everything, we are His, and because of our love for Him we want to reach others for His glory.  You can listen to a rough version of this song by clicking the link in the chart above.

     Thanks for taking time to check out what will be happening on Sunday.  Let’s show our big love for God with our lives this week as we prepare to worship together this week.  I look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.
