Getting Ready for Sunday February 21st at The Crossing

Prepare

This week Keith Simon preaches from John 9:1–3 in a sermon entitled, “Why God?” The Scripture reads,

1 As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. 2 His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”

3 “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.

The question is a poignant one. “Why God?” When confronted with suffering, like the early death of someone we love, or the agony of a broken relationship, or the loss of a job, or however the brokenness of our world strikes us, we often turn to God and ask why. How could this be happening? What is it supposed to mean? Join us this Sunday to eavesdrop on Jesus’ disciples asking that question and Jesus’ surprising answer.

We sing a new song this week, “King of My Heart.” It’s a meditative prayer for God to satisfy our hearts. He is good, the chorus repeats, calling us to trust his character amidst the challenges of life. Take a listen ahead of time to be ready to sing with us on Sunday.

We’re also trying something new this week, including a Spotify playlist of Sunday’s songs. So if that’s your thing, check it out (and let us know what you think).

Here’s our song list for this Sunday (with links to lyrics and music):

10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) [lyrics and listen] – Jonas Myrin and Matt Redman

The Christ, our Light [lyrics; listen] – Martin Reardon

Sovereign Over Us [lyrics and listen] – Aaron Keyes, Jack Mooring, and Bryan Brown

See you on Sunday!

    Absolutely love the Spotify playlist idea! Makes it so easy to live with our worship music individually before coming in to worship together.
