Sunday P.R.E.P - March 1, 2015
Sunday P.R.E.P. is a weekly tool designed to enhance our Sunday gatherings at Redemption Hill. As we individually pray, reflect, expect and pursue, God will prepare us for his great work in our worship together.
Pray and ask your heavenly Father to reveal ways you can live as Gospel family this week. Who in our gospel family do you need to encourage on Sunday? Pray with? Speak the truth in love? Support financially? God is able. He will guide you.
Reflect on these words from Christ Be All Around Me, which we will sing Sunday: “Your life, your death, your blood was shed, for every moment, every moment.” It is in the thousand of small moments that God brings about his transformation in our lives.
Expect God to show you the unsearchable riches of Christ and his manifold wisdom displayed through the Church from Ephesians 3:1-13:
For this reason I, Paul, a prisoner for Christ Jesus on behalf of you Gentiles--assuming that you have heard of the stewardship of God's grace that was given to me for you, how the mystery was made known to me by revelation, as I have written briefly. When you read this, you can perceive my insight into the mystery of Christ, which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit. This mystery is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel. Of this gospel I was made a minister according to the gift of God's grace, which was given me by the working of his power. To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things, so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was according to the eternal purpose that he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through our faith in him. So I ask you not to lose heart over what I am suffering for you, which is your glory.
Since we are partaking of the Lord’s Supper Sunday, pursue anyone within the church whom you need to seek reconciliation. Confess your sin, ask for forgiveness, and seek reconciliation. Forgive as God in Christ has forgiven you (Eph. 4:32).
