First United Reformed Church of Oak Lawn

Preparing for corporate worship March 26, 2023

Tomorrow is the Lord's Day. The blessing of the day to the Christian is obvious. To the world, it's just part of the "weekend." It is a blessing to be part of a church which highly values this day.

Tomorrow we take up "To the Cross" #3 and #4.

 There is good reason for that division. In the morning we will pay attention to various responses to the Lord. Each of those responses shows once again that Jesus is in charge. But then a great change occurs. At the end of the morning text Jesus is flogged. This terrible torture sets the stage for more abuse and mocking in the evening text. We might be inclined to ask why the Bible is so transparent and blunt to record the torture the Lord endured. Come morning and evening tomorrow to find out more!

The morning text is Matthew 27.1-26.

 Scripture Reading: Matthew 27.1-26

 Text: Matthew 27.1-26

Message:   “To the Cross, #3”

The evening will be Matthew 27.27-31.

Responsive Reading of Psalm 22.1-11
Scripture Reading: Matthew 27.27-31              

Text: Matthew 27.27-31

Sermon:      “To the Cross, #4
Let's pray for one another as we work through busy days and nights and come for divine rest tomorrow!
