Getting Ready for Sunday 10/8

FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER

I would assume most of us have heard of the Protestant Reformation. Still, it's likely that we aren't familiar with its great impact and influence on our understanding and practice of Christianity, for example, believers' baptism and English translations of the Bible.


This month marks the 506th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, and there are many areas of the Reformation we could acknowledge and celebrate. As a way of joining the Protestant celebration throughout the world, for October, our focus will be on The Glory of God In the Church of Jesus Christ. Ephesians 3:21 sums it up well.

To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen -Ephesians 3:21

Goals for October (and passages to study):

  1. Understanding the glory of God is the highest priority of all creation. (Ephesians 3:21, Romans 11:36, 1 Corinthians 10:31 )

  2. Understanding that the church of Jesus Christ exists to house and exalt the glory of God to the world. ( 1 Corinthians 3:16-17, Ephesians 3:21)

  3. Understanding how church polity (government) and discipleship, specifically as practiced at Ozarks Bible Church, plays a major role in OBC's pursuit of exalting the glory of God in Fulton County. (1 Timothy 3:15, Jude 3-4,

  4. Connecting the history of the Protestant Reformation to all the above. Below is a documentary that will introduce you to the Protestant Reformation, the church before the Reformation, and Martin Luther, the spark that lit the fire.




THIS SUNDAY


Our goal this Sunday will be to better understand the glory of God and our call to live for God's glory above all things.


The main text will be Ephesians 3:21 (stated above), but we will inevitably find ourselves all over the scriptures reaffirming that God's glory is His number one priority and consequently should be our number one priority. Other passages include: Romans 11:36, 1 Corinthians 10:31



October Catchesim Question and Answer:

Question 41: What is the sum of the Ten Commandments?

A. The sum of the ten commandments is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our strength, and with all our mind; and our neighbor as ourselves (Mat 22:37-40).
