Sermon Preview – Week of August 7

Our preaching text for Sunday will be John 4:27-42. We are still in the long narrative (4:1-42) of Jesus’ time in Samaria on his way to Galilee. Last week we saw Jesus engaging a Samaritan woman with a scandalous life. We learned that what was happening was the Father seeking and saving a true worshiper in and through Jesus Christ. However, the story doesn’t end with this Samaritan woman finding eternal life in Jesus, the fountain of living water. The story continues with what the woman does next, and what that means for her community. The town of Sychar will never be the same because of what God does in the heart of this scandalous woman, and the way this woman responds to what God does in her heart. What happens next will also serve as one of the most important lessons Jesus’ disciples will learn, it is a lesson that consumes the rest of their lives. It is a lesson that is to consume our lives as well. May we be eager to go the Word this week and learn what that lesson is and how it should shape our lives!

Songs For Sunday:

Hallelujah For The Cross

Holy, Holy, Holy

His Mercy Is More (*New Song*)

Verse 1

What love could remember no wrongs we have done
Omniscient all knowing He counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore
Our sins they are many His mercy is more

Verse 2

What patience would wait as we constantly roam
What Father so tender is calling us home
He welcomes the weakest the vilest the poor
Our sins they are many His mercy is more

Verse 3

What riches of kindness He lavished on us
His blood was the payment His life was the cost
We stood ‘neath a debt we could never afford
Our sins they are many His mercy is more


Praise the Lord His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness new every morn
Our sins they are many His mercy is more

I Will Glory In My Redeemer

Christ Is Mine Forevermore
