TEACHING SERIES | Crushing It
There’s something that stirs within each one of us, bringing out the worst in us. It’s keeps us from apologizing or forgiving, it keeps us from showing weakness and to obsess over our own glory and to take joy in other people’s failures. It turns our relationships with friends and families toxic and shuts out the grace of God. What is it? Come on, you already know. It’s your pride...and we're taking a look at it in this three-week teaching series.

SCRIPTURE READING | Philippians 2:3-8
Don’t act out of selfish ambition or be conceited. Instead, humbly think of others as being better than yourselves. 4 Don’t be concerned only about your own interests, but also be concerned about the interests of others. 5 Have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Although he was in the form of God and equal with God, he did not take advantage of this equality. Instead, he emptied himself by taking on the form of a servant, by becoming like other humans, by having a human appearance. He humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, death on a cross.
CONFESSION & ABSOLUTION
God of mercy
We confess that we are by our very nature, a sinful people
We sin against you with our thoughts, our words and our actions.
We have sinned against you by not doing the things we know we should do.
We have not loved you with our whole hearts and
We have not loved our neighbors with the love you have called us to.
For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, we ask for your mercy.
Forgive us, renew us and lead us so that we can daily walk in your ways
bring glory to you and blessing to our neighbors. Amen
God in his divine mercy
has loved us enough to give His own Son to die and rise for us
And for his sake, God forgives every one of our sins
in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.
SONG | Praise God From Whom All Blessing Flow Arr. by Blake Flattley
Everything we have is a gift from God
All that we have and are belong to God,
Bought with the blood of Jesus
Lord, help us be a people who live lives of sacrifical generosity
that through our generosity, Your love would be known.
Keep us from the delusion fo wealth and riches
and remind us that our treasure is in Christ
Increase our genersoity so that there are no needy person among us.
Grant us faithfulness in our stewardship of such a small thing as money
that Christ may trust us with true riches
Above all, let us be generous because our Father is generous
And it is our joy to share His generous heart with the world.

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE
Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven;
give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen
