1 John 2:28-3:10 - When NOT to listen in church

Thanks for dropping by the DIY Sunday Service Kit this week.

Caleb just dropped into my room as I was researching hymns and songs for this DIY SSK today and we enjoyed some of these songs together and talked about how much we really feel the need to be meeting together again soon.

We are now first in line for some premises in Llandovery that look as if they might become available and are really suitable as a replacement for the old Ty'r Bugail on Market Square ... which is exciting ... but we really need to pray that if He wills the Lord will simply make this happen.

In the meantime, let's sing like nobody but our God is listening!





Let's pray

Dear Lord and loving Heavenly Father we thank you for every example we've seen this week of your love, your compassion and your care.
We acknowledge that we don't deserve this and that it comes to us by your grace, and we give you thanks that you are patient with us.
Lift our eyes to you today, fix our gaze on you we pray and enlarge our vision of your grace and your glory.
We ask this in our Saviour's name.
Amen.

We honour the Lord in this old hymn of William Gadsby





Here's the Word for the Week video




Prayer points

  • Let's give thanks to God that all the remaining civilians in the steel works in Mariupol have now been evacuated and pray for everyone who now remains in that place.

  • Let's give thanks for all the emergency medical supplies we've been able to get into the hands of frontline medical personnel in Ukraine and give thanks for the generosity of all the donors. Let's also pray that the next consignment leaving us this week will find its way into the hands of those who need it the most and will make the best use of it.

  • Let's pray also for Alex and for Caleb as they tackle the technicalities of sorting through the streamlining of sourcing as cheaply as possible the goods we are sending to Ukraine, and work hard on administering the gifts most efficiently and effectively.

  • Let's pray too for the outreach in the marts, for wisdom and God-given words, and for good use to be made of New Testaments, books and online resources.

We thank you Lord, maker of Heaven and earth, that you have made us and chosen to call us to serve you in such a time as this. 
Give us each what we need to serve you faithfully and well, and make us joyful to be used in your service.

We ask for Jesus's Name's sake.

Amen.



Our Bible passage for today is on this link 👇






Today's sermon ('When not to listen in Church') is available here:



And here's a quick taster for the sermon ...





The studio cam for today's sermon is here:






Let's glorify the God Who is worthy of the praise of lips and lives:





Finally, it would be great to bless one another by lifting our eyes to Heaven in the words of Jude's doxology:

" To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— 

to the only God our Saviour be 
    glory, 
        majesty, 
            power and 
        authority, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord, 
    before all ages, 
        now 
            and forevermore! 

Amen."
