Welcome to our online service for Sunday 26th April 2020
It would be good to access the sermon video around 11am with others, so that we are watching together, even if we are physically apart. Prior to that, we can listen to the songs linked below, and spend some time in prayer.
First - come to the Lord in prayer, asking him to be at work in all who are setting this time aside to read, pray and listen around the country, and to be at work in us!
Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits -
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
A question for us... What is the greatest problem in the world? Corona virus? The climate crisis? The economy?
What is your greatest problem? This video "What's our Greatest Problem?" has an answer that ties in with the passage we are looking at today!
Spend some time in prayer:
Praise God for his justice and mercy to us in giving his Son for our forgiveness.
Give thanks that we can be his adopted children through faith in Jesus, knowing him as our heavenly Father!
Readings, Prayer and Sermon: Leviticus 16
Pray in response to the Bible passage and sermon.
Finally: You have either a new song or an old hymn to choose from (or both if you like): they point to the Lord Jesus Christ and his work on our behalf.
May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever.
