Our passage this Sunday ends with this strong exhortation.
“You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”
(1 Corinthians 6:19b-20)
Each week, Paul David Tripp tweets a reason God has called us to gather weekly for corporate worship. (If you’re on Twitter, he’s an edifying voice to follow!) Looking ahead to our passage in 1 Corinthians this Sunday, here are two that stand out.
Corporate worship is designed to lure you away from your little kingdom of one and enthrall you again with God’s kingdom of glory and grace.
Corporate worship is designed to ignite a worship of the Lord that doesn’t just live in corporate gatherings, but that shapes our living every day of the week.
The Good News we will remind one another of this Sunday has the power to do both.
Erik Thoennes will be preaching 1 Corinthians 6:12-20 and Kenny Clark will be leading our time of sung worship. Would you pray for each as they prepare? And as always, we encourage you to read the passage ahead of time and reflect prayerfully on it this week.
See you Sunday. Let’s come hungry!
SONG OF THE WEEK
We (re)introduced this song this past Sunday and will be singing it again this week
How free and costly was the love displayed upon the cross
While we were dead in untold sin, the Sovereign purchased us
