Last week I started a 4 week sermon series hoping to help get us as a church family on the same page in terms of how we refer to, think of, and apply the Gospel to our lives both individually and corporately. We started by simply defining the Gospel as the historical life, death, and resurrection of Jesus as opposed to simply a moral code or way of life. This week we'll begin to consider what it looks like when we do actually "proclaim the gospel to our hearts, home, and the hopeless."
The first thing we need to see is that we'll begin to delight in Christ in our hearts. We will study Psalm 63 and consider what David had to say about this. Please read this beautiful passage prior to Sunday and prayerfully think through what your heart truly delights in. This exercise will likely (in my case, most assuredly) lead to confession and repentance for realizing that our heart seeks to delight itself in so many things other than Christ ... many of them being "good" things, yet there's nothing able to satisfy our heart as does Christ! This will also help prepare us for participating in the Lord's Supper together. Come expecting to delight in Christ ... delight in Him during worship ... and leave in His grace that enables you to delight in Him continually.
