Lord’s Day Service – February 9, 2020
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.
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.
Hymn 19 Amid the Thronging Worshipers (Tune: 79) – This sung version of Psalm 22 helps us to do exactly what the psalm commands—bless the Lord among the thronging worshipers.
Glory Be to the Father (12)
Matthew 5:13–20 – Jesus became incarnate, not to abolish the Law, but to fulfill and Law and provide a means of cleansing and forgiveness for law-breakers who put their faith in him.
Hymn 269 My Faith Looks Up to Thee – This hymn gives expression to repentant hearts that cry to the Lamb of Calvary, “take all my guilt away.”
Galatians 4:4–5 – But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.
Hymn 183 Look, Ye Saints, the Sight Is Glorious – Because Jesus was made a little lower than the angels to accomplish salvation through his death on the cross, God exalted him and crowned him with glory.
Hebrews 2:5–16 – “Christ Superior to Angels by His Incarnation”
Hymn 196 Crown Him with Many Crowns – Our only response to these wondrous truths is to do what the angels do, crown Jesus Christ Lord of all.
Through this same glorified Christ, who ever intercedes for us, we draw near to the throne of grace to intercede for the world, the church around the world, and our own congregation.
Hymn 163 In the Cross of Christ I Glory – We depart with our mission to glory in the cross of Jesus Christ by telling the world of his incarnation, death, resurrection, and exaltation for us.
