Prepare for Worship (2 Sep 2018)

What kind of help from God are you in need of right now? Ponder over this and humbly beseech our Advocate, Jesus Christ, sent to help us face sin's penalty. 

WORSHIP PREPARATION

Call to Worship: Isaiah 41:8-10

But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, the offspring of Abraham, my friend;

you whom I took from the ends of the earth, and called from its farthest corners,

saying to you, “You are my servant, I have chosen you and not cast you off”;  

fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God;

I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

  

SONGS OF WORSHIP

Here are the songs for this week. 

 

GOD'S WORD IN WORSHIP

This week, we kick-off the 1st sermon on the 2nd chapter of 1 John for the month of September and  are delighted to have one of our Elder Associates, Caleb Yap  to bring God's word to us. He will be preaching from 1 John 2:1-6 and his sermon is titled "When God Sends an Advocate". The big idea of his sermon is that because we have Jesus as our advocate, we have help to face sin’s penalty and power. Let's be praying that God will use him to convict hearts to respond in Christlike living.

 

PRAYING FOR THE COMMUNITY

We thank God for this privilege of serving the GBC community through sharing our lives and praying for one another. This week, let us remember those overseas students in our midst who will be returning to a new academic year that God will continue to guard their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. For more opportunities to serve the community, please refer to this week's ministry guide by prayerfully considering either participating in or praying for them.
