20.03.01 CTK Worship Guide The hardness of heart demonstrated by the Hebrews during their wilderness wandering is often representative of our own sinful wandering as we journey through this life toward our rest across the Jordan.

Revelation Psalm 95:1–7a – God has given us every reason to praise him as the rock of our salvation, the King above all gods, and the shepherd who guides and protects us along the way.

20.02.23 CTK Worship Guide The climax of Jesus’s ministry prior to his crucifixion came when he was transfigured before his closest disciples, displaying the glory of his divinity and receiving affirmation from his Father. This same Son of God is the one through whom and to whom we draw near in worship. Revelation Exodus 24:12–18 – The glory of the Lord was displayed to Moses and the people when they drew near to Mt. Sinai to receive his Law. This same glorious God reveals himself to us and calls us to draw near to him in worship. Adoration Hymn 3 […]

20.02.16 CTK Worship Guide As sinners, we are unworthy to draw near to the presence of God. Yet in his great mercy, God provided a means for sinners to approach him through a sacrifice of atonement offered by a high priest. Jesus Christ took on flesh so that he could become our merciful and faithful high priest, accomplishing atonement for those who trust in his sacrifice. Revelation Leviticus 9:7–8, 22–24 – God called his people to draw near to him at Sinai, but in order to do so, Aaron the high priest had to offer a sacrifice of atonement. God […]

20.02.09 CTK Worship Guide This Lord’s Day we will rejoice in the superiority of Jesus Christ as one who was made lower than the angels in his incarnation, but was crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, accomplishing the salvation of his people. Revelation Psalm 22:22–31 – We begin with a psalm that calls us to praise the Lord in the midst of the congregation, yet Hebrews 2 applies this very passage to Jesus Christ, he through whom we offer our sacrifices of praise. Adoration Hymn 19 Amid the Thronging Worshipers (Tune: 79) – This sung […]

20.02.02 CTK Worship Guide This Lord’s Day’s service will remind us afresh that God alone deserves our worship, yet we regularly fail to worship him exclusively. Therefore, only through the perfect righteousness of Christ can we draw near to a Holy God in worship. Revelation Psalm 15 – As God calls us to worship, he reminds us that only those who are blameless may enter his presence. Adoration Hymn 58 Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven – A central theme of the service is a critical reminder that God alone deserves our highest praise and adoration. Corporate Prayers of Praise Glory […]

20.01.19 CTK Worship Guide Revelation This Lord’s Day, as we do each week, we will draw near to God in his heavenly temple, joining our voices and hearts with adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and praise with the angels and saints who forever surround his throne. We come, not through our own efforts or merit, but only through the atonement of Christ on our behalf. Psalm 40:1–3 – As the Scripture which calls us to worship reminds us, we come as a people whom the Lord drew up from the pit of destruction, and in whose hearts he put a new song, […]
