Yours is the Greatness, the Power, and the Glory

10-15-2017

As you go to bed on Saturdays and come to worship on Sundays, if you're anything like me, your mind is often full of the week or the morning behind you..., "I wonder why that meeting went that way? I wish my car didn't make that weird noise. I shouldn't have said that to my daughter, stayed up late watching tv or spent all that time on my pet project.", etc.  Or, it's full of the week ahead..., "I wonder what's for lunch.  I hope that doctor's appointment goes well.  This week, I'm going to get up on time, read my bible, pray, and eat right every day. That person better come through on what they promised.", etc.  

Some of those thoughts are less than helpful, some pretty benign, and some are even good thoughts to have.  But none of them are what we should be dwelling on as we prepare to worship the God of Heaven with his people.  The thoughts that should be filling are minds are these:

 " There is none like you, O Lord;
    you are great, and your name is great in might.
 Who would not fear you, O King of the nations?
    For this is your due;
for among all the wise ones of the nations
    and in all their kingdoms
    there is none like you." - Jeremiah 10:6-7

 "Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all. Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all.  And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name. " - I Corinthians 29:11-13

Let's come together this Sunday having trained our minds to focus on the One to whom belongs all the greatness, power, glory, victory and majesty...

Here are the songs we'll be singing that will help us to direct our thoughts and hearts to the King of Kings on his glorious throne.

Behold Our God
He is Our God
At Your Name
Great and Mighty King
Before the Throne
 
Here's a Spotify list of these songs (except He is Our God, which is off the new Sovereign Grace Music album that hasn't released yet).

A God and A Gospel That Never Change

October 1, 2017
 
As we celebrate our church's 12th Anniversary this weekend, it is amazing to think back on all of the things that have happened in the past 12 years.  People that have come, children that have been born, families that have moved away, lives have been transformed, new believers have been baptized, and Frisco has grown from a small town to one of the largest cities in North Texas.  After meeting in two hotels and three elementary schools as our earliest meeting places, followed by a fixed-up warehouse building, we have finally landed in our permanent facility in Frisco Square.  
 
And yet, with all those changes, some things have remained the same.  The Gospel has not changed.  The effects of the Gospel on the lost and the redeemed continue to be on display in and among us. And God has not changed.  His faithfulness has been on display in the midst of all kinds of changes in our lives and circumstances as a church family.  His power and provision have never been in doubt, as He has continually worked on our behalf to provide ministry opportunities and resources to support them.  His unfailing mercy has sustained us, His steadfast love has comforted us, and His empowering grace has enabled us to build a church centered on His Word and His Gospel.  How great is his faithfulness!  This Sunday, let's come ready to sing about and to this Faithful God we serve.
 
Here are the songs we'll be singing:
 
How Great Is Your Faithfulness
Great Is Thy Faithfulness
Reading of The Apostles' Creed
This I Believe
Grace Alone
Grace So Glorious
