SUNDAY PRAYER PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE 45 EXPERIENCING UNITY THROUGH HUMILITY
OUR FEATURED CHURCH FOR THE WEEK IS THE EMMANUEL CHURCH IN ANDHRAPRADESH, INDIA WITH BROTHER BATHINA AS IT’S LEADER
Good Morning CHILDREN OF GOD, welcome to the worship service this morning. As we come together let’s forget about ourselves and draw our wondering minds to the throne of grace prepared for this moment in time. We are truly blessed and it is now time to draw from the fountain of learning, designed to encourage our hearts and equip us to bring wondering souls to Christ. This time has been set aside for edification, restoration and rebuilding of shattered lives and hearts, as well as healing and comfort for those who are sick and in need of a special blessing. As the man-servant of God humbles himself so he can be used as an instrument, let us pray that his message will enlighten, comfort and bring hope to those who are seeking, open and ready to receive. “It is good to give thanks to the Lord and to sing praise to your name, O Most High” (Psalm 92:1 NKJV). May you be filled with great joy this day!!
TODAY’S SONG OF PRAISE:
CHILDREN FROM THE EMMANUEL CHURCH OF INDIA LIFTING UP HOLY HANDS IN PRAISE AND WORSHIP FOR OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST
LIFT UP HOLY HANDS AND PRAISE THE LORD
I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.
I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy loving kindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. (Psalm 138:1-2 KJV)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE READING AND BACKGROUND SCRIPTURES FOR TODAY’S BIBLE STUDY SESSION
UNITY THROUGH HUMILITY (PHILIPPIANS 2:1-4 AMP) (MATTHEW 11:28-30) (MATTHEW 12:33) (COLOSSIANS 3:12)
So by whatever [appeal to you there is in our mutual dwelling in Christ, by whatever] strengthening and consoling and encouraging [our relationship] in Him [affords], by whatever persuasive [a]incentive there is in love, by whatever participation in the [Holy] Spirit [we share], and by whatever depth of affection and compassionate sympathy,
2 Fill up and complete my joy by living in harmony and being of the same mind and one in purpose, having the same love, being in full accord and of one harmonious mind and intention.
3 Do nothing from factional motives [through contentiousness, strife, selfishness, or for unworthy ends] or prompted by conceit and empty arrogance. Instead, in the true spirit of humility (lowliness of mind) let each regard the others as better than and superior to himself [thinking more highly of one another than you do of yourselves].
4 Let each of you esteem and look upon and be concerned for not [merely] his own interests, but also each for the interests of others.
MATTHEW 11:28-30 AMP
28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will [a]ease and relieve and [b]refresh [c]your souls.]
29 Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest ([d]relief and ease and refreshment and [e]recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.(A)
30 For My yoke is wholesome (useful, [f]good—not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.
MATTHEW 12:33 AMP
33 Either make the tree sound (healthy and good), and its fruit sound (healthy and good), or make the tree rotten (diseased and bad), and its fruit rotten (diseased and bad); for the tree is known and recognized and judged by its fruit.
Clothe yourselves therefore, as God’s own chosen ones (His own picked representatives), [who are] purified and holy and well-beloved [by God Himself, by putting on behavior marked by] tenderhearted pity and mercy, kind feeling, a lowly opinion of yourselves, gentle ways, [and] patience [which is tireless and long-suffering, and has the power to endure whatever comes, with good temper].
TODAY’S BIBLE STUDY SESSION TITLE:
EXPERIENCING UNITY THROUGH HUMILITY:
In today’s Bible Study Session, Pastor Davis takes us on a journey into the heart of the Church at Philippi as the Apostle Paul, its leader, was bound in chains in a prison in Rome. He wrote one of his most important letters to his Church and His Beloved Brethren. Now click on this video clip and lets begin our study and worship session for this day.
TODAY’S ALTER CALL:
If you are a person studying this lesson with us today and have not received the saving grace of the Lord and would like to join the Lord’s family of believers and receive eternal life, repeat this short prayer with me: “Lord I am a sinner, I have sinned against you, I believe that Jesus died for my sins, and on the third day you raised him from the grave and today He lives. I ask you to forgive me of my sins, and come into my heart and cleanse me of my sins. If you have prayed this prayer with me, you now are saved and have eternal life in glory.”
We encourage you to find a local Bible Teaching Church and begin to study and fellowship with other believers. You can also return back here daily and study God’s word with us. We share the truth of the scriptures daily, and you will find over 1000 topics for study and discussions. May the saving grace of our Lord and Savior be with you now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!
Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writings has been made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith—to the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen.
We came in to Worship, now let us go out and serve in Jesus name. May the Lord’s Peace and Blessings be with each one of you for an awesome week of SERVICE.
