The Faithfulness to All Generations

September 15, 2019

 

 

The Faithfulness to All Generations

Psalm 100:1-5 (ESV)

 

"1 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!

2 Serve the Lord with gladness!

Come into his presence with singing!

3 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.

4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,

and his courts with praise!

Give thanks to him; bless his name!

5 For the Lord is good;

his steadfast love endures forever,

and his faithfulness to all generations."



A Call to Worship


"1 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!"


"27 What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops." Matthew 10:27 


"2 Serve the Lord with gladness!

Come into his presence with singing!

3 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."


"True delight is rooted in true doctrine. God-centered Exultation is rooted in God centered Education. If education does not lead to exultation in God, it fails." - John Piper


“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. 3 He restores
my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness…” Psalm 23:1-3 


"4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,

and his courts with praise!

Give thanks to him; bless his name!"


“But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge,
that I may tell of all your works.” Psalm 73:28 


“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.” Galatians 6:7 

 

"I might speak concerning a nation or concerning a kingdom to build up or to plant it; if it does evil in My sight by not obeying My voice, then I will think better of the good with which I had promised to bless it." Jeremiah 18:9-10

 

The Cause of Worship


"5 For the Lord is good;

his steadfast love endures forever,

and his faithfulness to all generations."

 

SO WHAT?

 

 

 

LIFEGROUP SESSION 2                           

Paths & The Valley

 

 

BIG IDEA

When the Lord is our shepherd, we receive the righteousness of Christ as a free gift that he extends to us for the glory of his name. Our hope

in times of darkness is the presence of God, not the resolution of our circumstances.

 

BIBLE STUDY NOTES 

Psalm 23:1-6

 

 

 

PERSONAL REFLECTION

Do you find yourself resorting to white-knuckled discipline? How should the truth that Christ purchased your righteousness on the cross change the way you think about obedience? If verse 4—and Psalm 23 as a whole—is painting an accurate picture of reality, do you believe Christians today

have a good understanding of what the Bible teaches about suffering? Do you understand? Why or why not?

 

 

Where do you find yourself discouraged today? What is fueling that discouragement? In what ways should your faith in Christ be strengthened by the truth that the creator of the world cares for you?

 

 

LIVE IT OUT

Select at least one activity below to complete before next week. 

 

⊲ MEMORIZE 

Continue working on memorizing Psalm 23. This week, focus on verse three & four reciting it to yourself over the next few days.

 

⊲ PRAY 

If the Lord revealed to you any ways that you have misunderstood the righteousness he freely gives, confess that to him throughout this next week. Ask that he would free you from false belief in order to walk in the truth of his Word.

 

Whether or not you are currently in a season of difficulty, ask the Lord to prepare you for suffering. Pray that he would remove all other shepherds that compete for priority in your life so that he alone would be your comfort in both good and bad times.

 

⊲ SERVE

Identify a need somewhere in your day-to-day routine (workplace, neighborhood, school, etc.) and make an intentional effort to serve that need to make much of the name of the Lord. 

 

⊲ JOURNAL 

Set aside some time this next week to reflect on times you have faced suffering in the past. For each instance, write down 2-3 specific ways that God comforted you throughout that time with his protection and guidance.
