Welcome – church family, visitors…
18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Jesus is King!
- Our Good and Gracious King
- The King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
- Let us worship our King today!
In Matthew 6, when Jesus said to seek first the kingdom, he didn’t ask us to seek a kingdom that would fade away, but one that will last forever.
When Jesus said, in this life you will have tribulation, but take heart for I have overcome the world.
He said this because HE IS the KING of THIS everlasting kingdom.
When Jesus calls us to go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of F S HS… and teaching them to obey his commands…He said this because he has all authority in heaven and earth. We can be bold in our proclamation of the Good news of Jesus Christ.
And we know that all who hear and call upon the name of the Lord will be saved!
And when we worship Jesus, we worship the name that is high above every other name.
Let us worship our King, our Lord, our God, today!
Scripture Reading After 3rd Song in Worship
The Preeminence of Christ
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.
16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.
17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent.
19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell,
20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
