The Worship of God

November 17, 2019

11:00 AM

The prelude music is a time for beginning worship.  Observing a time of silence and prayer will free the congregation to focus on the worship of God.

The Prelude                                                                                      Mrs. Beth Braun

The Chiming of the Hour

The Call to Worship                        This is the Day

The Welcome and the Lord’s Prayer                                    Mrs. Candice Lewis                                                                                

*The Opening Hymn# 231 Come, Christians, Join to Sing

The Scripture Lesson                 Luke 21:27-38                                 

“At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.  When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

He told them this parable:  “Look at the fig tree and all the trees.  When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near.  Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.

I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.  Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.  Be careful or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap, for it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth.  Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”

Each day Jesus was teaching at the temple, and each evening he went out to spend the night on the hill called the Mount of Olives, and all the people came early in the morning to hear him at the temple.

This is the gospel of Christ.

Thanks be to God.

The Prelude                                                                                     Mrs. Beth Braun

The Call to Worship #635                 The Star-Spangled Banner

The Welcome and the Lord’s Prayer                                      Ms. Becky Wiliford                                                                               

                                                                                                                                                                                       *The Opening Hymn   (see insert)

The Scripture Lesson                     Luke 20: 27-38                   

Some of the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus with a question.  “Teacher” they said, “Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and have children for his brother.

Now there were seven brothers.  The first one married a woman and died childless. The second and then the third married her, no children.  Finally, the woman died too. Now then, at the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?”

Jesus replied, “the people of this age marry and are given in marriage.  But those who are considered worthy of taking part in that age and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage, and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels.  They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection.

 But in the account of the bush, even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord ‘the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’  He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.”

This is the gospel of Christ.

Thanks be to God.

*The Offertory Hymn # 476                       Be Strong in the Lord

We are pleased that we have veterans who are serving as ushers this  morning as our country will be celebrating Veterans Day on Monday.

The Choral Worship                   Thank You, Soldiers

 The Sermon                                                                                    Dr. Cecil Chambers

The Resurrection Changes Things Angelic?

A strange question leads the way

In the resurrection family will be different

What does it mean to be angelic?

*The Hymn of Decision # 515       There’s a Land that is Fairer than Day

The Dismissal and Blessing

Go now in the peace of God’s great vision for the world to come.

We go in peace remembering His promise, “He will wipe every tear from their eyes.  There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

The Choral Response                   Amen

The Greeting and the Lord’s Prayer Miss Becky Wiliford

*The Opening Hymn # 54             Great is Thy Faithfulness    

The Scripture Lesson          Psalm 37: 1-10   (read responsively)    

Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.

Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.                                                     

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.

Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret – it leads only to evil. For evil men will be cut off, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.

A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found.

Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.  Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.  For,

“Whoever would love life and see good days, must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech. He must turn from evil and do good; he must seek peace and pursue it.

For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”

*The Opening Hymn # 382                God, the Father of your People  

The Gospel Lesson             Luke 15: 1-10    NIV

Now the tax collectors and “sinners” were all gathering around to hear him.  But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.

Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them.  Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?  And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulder and goes home.  Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 

I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one.  Does she not light

a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully  until she finds it?     And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin. 

In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”    

This is the gospel of Christ.

Thanks be to God.

For, “All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever.”

And this is the word that was preached to you.

This is the word of God for the people of God.

Thanks be to God.

The Chiming of the Hour

The Greeting and the Lord’s Prayer                                              Mrs. Pat Myers

*The Opening Hymn # 136      Are You Washed in the Blood

The Scripture Lesson                    Psalm 73: 1-17 

Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart.  But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold for I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong.  They are free from the burdens common to man; they are not plagued by human ills.

Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence.  From their callous hearts comes iniquity, the evil conceits of their minds know no limits.   They scoff, and speak with malice; in their arrogance they threaten oppression. Their mouths lay claim to heaven, and their tongues take possession of the earth. Therefore their people turn to them and drink up waters in abundance.  They say, “How can God know?  Does the Most High have knowledge? 

This is what the wicked are like – always carefree, they increase in wealth.  Surely in vain have I kept my heart pure; in vain have I washed my hands in innocence.  All day long I have been plagued; I have been punished every morning.   If I had said, “I will speak thus,” I would have betrayed your children.  When I tried to understand all this, it was oppressive to me till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny.

This is the word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

Have you changed your address or know members who have changed their address?  Please let the office know of any changes so we will have accurate information.  Even if members are out of town and rarely attend, the deacons send cards periodically and accurate information is a big help in ministering to folks through the mail.

2. Would you have an interest in helping with transportation with members who are not comfortable driving after dark but enjoy the Wednesday program.  Please ask the pastor, Mrs. Taylor, or Mr. McGuire for more information.

3. Have you joined the Skipwith Baptist Church Facebook Page.  Check us out and let us hear from you.

A Prayer for Worship

O God, light of the minds that know you,

Life of the souls that love you,

Strength of the thoughts that seek you;

Help us to so know you

That we may truly love you,

 To so love you

That we may fully serve you,

Whose service is perfect freedom;

Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Chiming of the Hour

The Welcome and Lord’s Prayer                                              Mr. Will Silvestre                                                                          

*The Opening Hymn # 54                  Great is Thy Faithfulness

The Scripture Lesson              Luke 13: 10-17

On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years.  She was bent over and could not straighten up at all.  When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.”  Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.

Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, the synagogue ruler said to the people, “There are six days for work.  So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath.”

The Lord answered him, “You hypocrites!  Doesn’t each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water?  Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?”

When he said this, all his opponents were humiliated, but the people were delighted with all the wonderful things he was doing.

This is the gospel of Christ.

Thanks be to God.
