WORSHIP FOCUS

Worship Focus for Sunday, June 20th

 

Greetings–

As we prepare to gather together for worship on Sunday, we are grateful for a day to reflect on the men who have nurtured and loved us in our lives. For many, our dad's were our primary supporter. But the reality is that often times those godly men in our lives have also been our grandfathers, youth advisors, brothers, uncles, coaches or friends whose encouragement and presence has been an extension of God's love in our lives. We are grateful for the healthy and positive ways that these men have shape and formed us.

This Sunday we continue in our summer sermon series called “That’s a good question!” Each week we are focusing on a question raised in scripture and consider how the question itself and the passage invite us into a deeper reflection of faith and awareness of God’s truth. This week we will look at an early story in scripture that introduces violence as a response of the human heart when one is not aligned with God. Our question “Am I my brother’s keeper?” is asked by Cain after he has killed his brother Abel in Genesis, chapter 4.

I look forward to worshipping with you this Sunday!


Grace & Peace,
Steve

Sunday's Message: Am I my brother’s keeper?

Scripture:
Genesis 4:1-16
Matthew 5:1-9

 

Genesis 4:1-16
Now the man knew his wife Eve, and she conceived and bore Cain, saying, ‘I have produced a man with the help of the Lord.’ Next she bore his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, and Cain a tiller of the ground. In the course of time Cain brought to the Lord an offering of the fruit of the ground, and Abel for his part brought of the firstlings of his flock, their fat portions. And the Lord had regard for Abel and his offering, but for Cain and his offering he had no regard. So Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell. The Lord said to Cain, ‘Why are you angry, and why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is lurking at the door; its desire is for you, but you must master it.’

Cain said to his brother Abel, ‘Let us go out to the field.’ And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel and killed him. Then the Lord said to Cain, ‘Where is your brother Abel?’ He said, ‘I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?’ And the Lord said, ‘What have you done? Listen; your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground! And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you till the ground, it will no longer yield to you its strength; you will be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth.’ Cain said to the Lord, ‘My punishment is greater than I can bear! Today you have driven me away from the soil, and I shall be hidden from your face; I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth, and anyone who meets me may kill me.’ Then the Lord said to him, ‘Not so! Whoever kills Cain will suffer a sevenfold vengeance.’ And the Lord put a mark on Cain, so that no one who came upon him would kill him. Then Cain went away from the presence of the Lord, and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden.

Matthew 5:1-9
When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:
‘Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
‘Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
‘Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
‘Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.
‘Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

PASTORAL PRAYER & LORD’S PRAYER Pastor Denia Segrest

HYMN OF DEDICATION: #371 (GH) Our Father, We Have Wandered (vss. 1 & 3, tune: Munich)


Vs. 1 Our Father, we have wandered and hidden from your face;
In foolishness have squandered your legacy of grace.
But now, in exile dwelling, we rise with fear and shame,
As, distant but compelling, we hear you call our name.

Vs. 3 O Lord of all the living, both banished and restored,
Compassionate, forgiving and evercaring Lord,
Grant now that our transgressing, our faithlessness may cease.
Stretch out your hand in blessing, in pardon, and in peace.
