Prepare your heart for Sunday
Here we go! This is week four of Easter, or put another way, the fourth week we have set aside to explore the resurrected Jesus and what he means in our everyday lives.
I encourage you to prepare your heart for Table and Word this week. Our time in the word will be based on Psalm 23 and John 10:1-21. Kyle Johnson will be preaching the message: The Good Shepherd. Our time at the table will be based on Mark 6:30-44. Our worship in giving of our first fruits will be rooted in Philippians 4:15-20. I want to encourage you to read these texts that will be the foundation of our time together.
The links will take you to a Bible Gateway page that enables you to read the texts in the five versions I read on a regular basis: The New International Version, The New Revised Standard Version, The Common English Bible, The New Living Translation, and The Message.
Kyle writes regarding his sermon for Sunday: “I am the gate for the sheep.” “I am the good shepherd.” In a parable originally meant to challenge the Pharisees, Jesus offers some fascinating and uplifting images concerning who he is and who we are in relation to him. Read John 10:1-21 to prepare.
