PREPARING FOR LCC GATHERED – WEEK OF 5.3.15
This Week’s Message
This week, we continue our series, “Core,” with our discussion of “Gospel Centrality.” Check out Galatians 2:11-14, as we prepare for Sunday.
But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned. For before certain men came from James, he was eating with the Gentiles; but when they came he drew back and separated himself, fearing the circumcision party. And the rest of the Jews acted hypocritically along with him, so that even Barnabas was led astray by their hypocrisy. But when I saw that their conduct was not in step with the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas before them all, “If you, though a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you force the Gentiles to live like Jews?”
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
“We gather because we cannot stay away from each other. We gather to celebrate a diversity that goes beyond mere cultural groupings. We gather to learn in common and to bring our daily learning into each other’s conversation. We gather as the body of Christ, his bride, and our continuing worship turns to a gathered feast.” Harold Best, Unceasing Worship
