Sunday Rhythm | April 10, 2011

Plan on joining us this fifth Sunday of Lent as we continue our march towards Easter, and our voyage through The Book of Acts: Enjoying God and Engaging His Mission. We would encourage you to take some time before Sunday to pray for our gathering, and come prepared to expressively worship God together through the songs we sing, the prayers we pray, the scriptures we read, and the communion we partake in. Using the 2011 Redemption Hill Lent Guide as a reference, pray for unbelievers in Richmond, and that they would be drawn by God, to Jesus Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Pray that God would use us to find Jesus’ lost sheep living in the community, and as we are generous in sharing our material blessings, we will also share the spiritual blessing of the gospel.

God Calls His People to Worship

Our Continuation of Worship will be Isaiah 50:4-10, where we are reminded of the obedience of Jesus as he puts his full trust and confidence in God on his way to the cross. The passage then concludes proclaiming God’s glory and greatness as we meditate upon what it means to desire the Lord above all things.

God Speaks to His People Through His Word

The Bible is the means by which God graciously reveals Himself to His people. Pastor Robert will continue with our journey through The Book of Acts: Enjoying God and Engaging His Mission. Sunday’s text will be Acts 15:1-41. We would encourage you to read the text in advance of Sunday, and prepare your hearts to be open to the truth God wants to reveal to you about himself.

God Strengthens His People At His Table

We take communion, or the Lord’s Supper, every week at Redemption Hill. The Lord’s Supper is a time in the service where we are tangibly reminded of the broken body of Christ and the sacrifice of sin he became for us on the cross.

God’s People Respond in Grateful Praise

Scripture teaches us that our lives and hearts continually give response to the Word of God (Nehemiah 8:6). We respond with either hardened hearts or with praise and brokenness. Here we have a chance to stand and respond to the Living God with songs of praise.
