The text this week is Matthew 21:28-46. Jesus tells two parables which show the Jewish leaders the perils of rejecting him. The Worship will be “He Sent His Son.” The idea is that we worship God for sending his Son even though he would be rejected.
O Sacred Head Now Wounded
Galatians 4:4-5 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.
Stricken, Smitten and Afflicted
John 1:9-13 The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 10He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. 12But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
Lead Me to the Cross Hannah says “We’re doing it musically more like Chris and Conrad do it though the lyrics will be the same as usual. Here is another nice arrangement by Brooke Fraser/Hillsong: Lead Me to the Cross”
Hebrews 12:2-3 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Come and Welcome – Indelible Grace – Hannah says “You should totally purchase the album Beams of Heaven from Indelible Grace. It is very good.:) This song is the first track on the album. If you can’t afford it, then just purchase the first song on iTunes. If you can’t afford that, then please just listen to the YouTube link that I’ve attached here. HOWEVER, it should be noted that the recorded version is much better than the YouTube version. The music starts about 34 seconds into the video as someone talks at the beginning.”
