FBC Robinson Online 4-26-2020

Before we begin our time this morning, would someone in your home please pray and ask God to bless this time of worship?

Thanks so much for doing that!

Our passage of Scripture today is from Matthew’s Gospel, Chapter 25, verses 14 thru 30. Please have someone read this out loud and then begin your time of worship with the videos below.

All Hail The Power

All Hail The Power Lyrics:

All hail the pow’r of Jesus’ Name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all!

Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all!

Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race,
Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him Who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all!

Hail Him Who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all!

Lord of all, You are Lord of all, Lord of all, You are Lord of all!

Let every kindred, every tribe,
On this terrestrial ball,
To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all!

To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him Lord of all!

Lord of all, You are Lord of all, Lord of all, You are Lord of all!

And crown Him Lord of all, And crown Him Lord of all, And crown Him Lord of all! Lord of all! Lord of all! Amen!

10,000 Reasons

10,000 Reasons Lyrics:

The sun comes up
It’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass
And whatever lies before me
Let me be singing
When the evening comes

Bless the Lord oh my soul
Oh my soul
Worship His Holy name
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your Holy name

You’re rich in love
And You’re slow to anger
Your name is great
And Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness
I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons
For my heart to find

Bless the Lord oh my soul
Oh my soul
Worship His Holy name
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your Holy name
Bless You Lord

And on that day
When my strength is failing
The end draws near
And my time has come
Still my soul will
Sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years
And then forevermore
Forevermore

Bless the Lord oh my soul
Oh my soul
Worship His Holy name
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your Holy name

Bless the Lord oh my soul
Oh my soul
Worship His Holy name
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your Holy name
I’ll worship Your Holy name
I’ll worship Your Holy name!

Sermon

Further Discussion After Viewing:

Pastor Brooks asked two questions for Christians to think through toward the end of this message:

“What gifts has God entrusted to you? and “What work has good entrusted to you?

Have you thought about these questions much?

For the second question, if someone were to ask you about the Great Commandment and Great Commission, would you know how to recite and explain them in your own words?

These are the work God has entrusted to us. We need to first know what He expects us to be working toward…and then we must busy ourselves with this work!

He then mentioned three gifts that all Christians have been entrusted with. These gifts enable us to do the work God has given us. Of these three, how would you assess your use of them?

1) Your testimony

a) Have you ever shared your testimony? b) Who could you share with this week? c) Be on the lookout for a blog post with help on this coming soon.

2) Your vocation

a) Have you ever thought about asking a co-worker this question:

“Would you mind if I shared with you sometime during a break or over lunch how God has guided me through seasons of difficulty like the one we are all going through right now?

or

“Would you mind if I asked those of our co-workers who would be willing to pray with me at the beginning of every week that all of us would stay safe in the midst of these uncertain times?”

These questions are great to ask, and they show you care and respect other people enough to at least ask them permission first, without seeming like you are set on forcing something on them.

b) Your job is also the place people see you live out your faith by doing everyday activities in a Christ-like way. What a great opportunity to demonstrate the difference Jesus makes!

3) Your experiences

a) Have you ever been tempted to think that your best life is now or in the past? For the faithful servant, our best life is always yet to come!

b) Jesus’ words to the first and second servant were, “Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.

How might anticipating this future day of reward and increased responsibility help you in what “little” thing you’ve been entrusted with today?

Memory Verse – Matthew 5:21: “His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.'”

Use this verse to close your time in prayer.
