Thought For Today “God’s Road Is Not Easy, But It Leads To Eternal Satisfaction.” 1550 S W W White Road San Antonio, TX 78220 Church: (210) 337-2044 Fax: (210) 337-2106 E-Mail: [email protected] Web Page Address: www.dellcrestchurchofchrist.org Using God’s Word Although proper worship is directed to God, the one who worships benefits greatly from it. Singing allows us the opportunity to offer our praise to God and to pour out our hearts, whether in joy or sorrow, to Him. Through prayer, we similarly express both thanksgivings and requests. These actions allow us to verbalize things that might otherwise cause anxiety and strife (cf. Philippians 4:6) Both remind us of God’s greatness and foster an attitude of humility and dependence (cf. James 4:6). When we observe the Lord’s Supper, our meditation regarding Jesus’ death reminds us that we have the opportunity to be forgiven because He came to earth and shed His blood on the cross. Giving of our means provides us with a sense of joy and fellowship as we take part in the work of the church. By reading and studying God’s Word, we receive direction for our lives. This lesson will focus on the benefits derived from using God’s Word in worship. How can you prepare for worship on Sunday morning? Seize the Rest of the Week: Practice family worship and secret worship throughout the week knowing that this will inform and encourage your experience in corporate worship. Be Boring: Go to bed early on Saturday night. Friday nights can be filled with late-night activity, but Saturday nights should routinely be safeguarded. Sleepy heads make for drowsy worshippers. Right Attitude: Cultivate a spirit of joy on Sunday mornings in your home. If this is the highlight of our week, then let’s act like it. Talk about how wonderful the day is going to be, wake the kids up with excitement, turn on good Christian music for the whole family to listen to, and put a smile on your face. Media Blackout: Refrain from turning on the television, watching Netflix, or catching up on Facebook Sunday mornings. Our minds are so easily distracted. Safeguard your mental space. Plan Ahead: Lay out your Sunday morning clothes on Saturday night, so you don’t have to change ten times on Sunday morning before finding an outfit that fits well, looks right, or is ironed (of course, this point was not intentionally directed to any particular sex!). Early Bird: Rise early on Sunday morning and spend time reading the Word, praying, and meditating to prepare your heart for worship.

The Bible speaks of just one church: Read Matt. 16:18; Eph. 1:22-23; 4:4; Col. 1:18; I Cor. 12: 12-27. 2. Denominational division is contrary to the teaching of the Bible? Read: I Cor. 1:10; Phil. 3:16 3. In order to become a Christian, one must: a) Hear the gospel - Rom. 10:17; Acts 15:7 b) Believe in Christ - John 8:24; Heb. 11:6 c) Repent of sins - Luke 13:3; Acts 17:30 d) Confess faith in Christ - Matt. 10:32; Romans 10:9-10 e) Be baptized for remission of sins - Acts 2:38 4. When one obeys Christ in being baptized: a) He gets into Christ - Gal. 3:27; I Cor. 12:13 b) He is saved from his past sins - I Pet. 3:2021; Mark 16:15-16 Why not obey the gospel of Christ!
