King David was known as a man who was after God's own heart, he wrote nearly 80 of the Psalms that we study and love today. Yet David was not without his faults. We'll look at a story of David committing adultery and murder. How can a man who has done these heineous acts be looked at so highly by the church?

Jay O'Brien will be preaching from 2 Samuel 11:1-12:31

 

Through the liturgy, we celebrate that God does not love us for what we've done but He loves us because of His goodness and grace.

Reflect on this Assurance that we'll read together:

By true faith in Jesus Christ,
We are right with God
and heirs to life everlasting.
Even though our conscience accuses us
of having grievously sinned against all God’s commandments
and of never having kept any of them,
and even though we are still inclined toward all evil,
nevertheless, without our deserving it at all,
out of sheer grace, God grants and credits to us
the perfect satisfaction, righteousness, and holiness of Christ,
as if we had never sinned nor been a sinner,
as if we had been as perfectly obedient
as Christ was obedient for us.
—from Heidelberg Catechism, Q&A’s 59-60

 

Some songs that we will be singing are:

All Creatures - An older hymn with a new arrangement. This song is a calling for us to give all of our worship and praise to God

White as Snow - Written from Psalm 51, this song is a song of confession. We sing together, asking God to forgive us and wash us as white as snow.

May Your Power Rest on Me - This is a new song for Scarlet City Church. We've been looking to 2 Corinthians 12:9 throughout this series and through this song, we'll celebrate the truth of that verse. The Lord sustains us and His power is perfected in our weakness!!!

 

We are so excited to know and celebrate that truth that the gospel is for everyone!!! Please join us as we pray towards Sunday morning. Pray that God's grace would be known to those who've never heard it and would be known deeper to those who already know it. We pray for the worship gathering at 10am and all are welcome to join us. See you on Sunday!!!
