For the Lord’s Day 5.1.16

Dear Covenant Church Family,

We have the privilege this week of having Rev. Jim Coad preach the Word to us from Psalm 23.  He is from our sister denomination, the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, having served for many years, even decades, as a missionary to Mexico.  So, make plans to be at the Lord’s Day worship service and we’ll see each other then.

Hymns for Worship:

#110 Hallelujah, Praise Jehovah (Psalm 148:1-13)

#457 Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Behold the Lamb (Getty, Townend)

The Creed of Timothy (Nathan Clark George)

Sermon Outline:

“The Faithful, Strong, and GOOD SHEPHERD”

Psalm 23:1-6

Main Idea:  Because the LORD cares for His people in all circumstances through the ministry of His Son applied to us by His Spirit, we can be confident and secure in His presence.

1) The LORD, our Shepherd cares for his people all the time

2) The LORD cares for his people in good times

3) The LORD cares for his people in bad times

4) The LORD cares for his people through the ministry of Jesus Christ, our Good Shepherd, applied to us by his Holy Spirit.

5) The LORD cares for his people as Jesus lives in us by His Spirit who feeds us on Christ by His word and by the Lord’s supper.

May God bless you,

pastor scott
