Sermon Videos

Friday, April 10: Good Friday

A Panel Discussion on Mark 15

 

Saturday Prayer & Fasting

We want to invite those in our Linworth family that are able and interested, to join us tomorrow for a day of fasting and prayer. There is no pressure for you to participate. We recognize that for a number of different reasons, you may be unable to participate. Isaiah 57 reminds us that fasting is not meritorious in any way, and is only helpful if it leads to deeper focus on God and obedience to Him, especially as it relates to serving others around us in need.

Matthew 9 reminds us that fasting is a discipline that teaches us to long for the coming of Christ.  The physical hunger we experience serves as a reminder to ask God to give us a deeper hunger for Him and His soon return.

The encouragement would be to drink only water throughout the day and focus our time on prayer. This may be a big step for you, so feel free to participate at whatever level you choose.

If you are able....

In the morning, spend some time reading Psalm 139 and thanking God for His intimate knowledge of you and ask God to deepen your knowledge of Him.

At Noon, spend some time reading Revelation 2:1-7 and ask God to use this time to bring about revival throughout the globe.

In the evening, spend some time reading Acts 1:1-5 and ask God use this time to bring many people to become His followers.

Music

Our annual Good Friday service typically has a musical component that seeks to facilitate a time of reflection. The Hardjono family had been preparing some special music for this service. But since we cannot be together to listen, they have recorded several songs for you to enjoy where you are today as we reflect on the crucifixion and wait with anticipation for Sunday. We are so grateful to the Hardjonos for all of their work and effort on these, and hope you enjoy.

Psalm 34

 

Supplemental Scripture Reading

Matthew 6:25-34Psalm 34:4 says that David "sought" the Lord. Read this passage in Matthew and consider the many blessings Jesus promises his followers who seek him above all things.

Music

We are grateful that Michael was able to come in to record a few songs for us to sing along to this morning. We hope that you enjoyed some time worshipping "alongside" a familiar face during the sermon video this week.

Reflecting on the Final Days of Jesus

This week, we are providing daily Scripture readings along with a daily summary of what took place during each of Jesus' final days before his crucifixion. We hope this resource helps to set the tone for both the weight of Good Friday, and ultimately the joy of Easter! This daily resource starts today and is available in the center block on the bottom half of our main page, or by clicking HERE.

Giving

If you are looking to take part in worship through giving, you can still do so during this time by dropping your offering in the secure box on the front porch of the church office, or by mailing a check to the church at 6200 Linworth Rd, Columbus, OH, 43085. You can also give online HERE

Around the Table

These questions seek to create discussion around the theme of this week's passage as a family, one-on-one, or in a small group, for all ages.

Psalm 34
In verse 4 of this week's Psalm, David said he sought the Lord, and he was answered and delivered from his fears.

Who or what are you personally most tempted to seek, other than God, when you experience tough times? During the past several weeks of this trial, where do you find you seek security or comfort from your fears, anxieties, or boredom?

Read aloud 1 Peter 5:6-11.

What does it mean to be sober-minded and watchful as a Christian? What are some specific ways we can seek the Lord in moments when we are tempted to seek other things?

In verse 9, Peter reminds his readers about the suffering of Christians throughout the world - how can this reminder be a source of strength to us as we struggle during this current trial?

Describe a time where you gave in to temptation that led to suffering and eventually to restoration, confirmation, strengthening, and establishment? What does it mean to be able to rely on God in those difficult times?

Psalm 27

 

Supplemental Scripture Reading

2 Corinthians 5:1-10Like Psalm 27, this passage compares our life on earth where we must walk by faith, not by sight, to the glorious day when we will see our Lord and Savior in the Heavenly Dwelling he has prepared for us.

Music

Psalm 59:16 says, I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress. While nothing can replace coming together as one body, we encourage you to sing where you are.

If you have access to a guitar or piano and are able, we encourage you to use the sheet music to "sing aloud of His love" to some of these song this morning.

If you don't have access to an instrument, or ability to play one, there are lyric video links for each song that you can watch and sing along to, or listen to as a time of reflection this morning.

Around the Table

These questions seek to create discussion around the theme of this week's passage as a family, one-on-one, or in a small group, for all ages.

Psalm 27
David spends much of Psalm 27 speaking to fear, and he ends the psalm with an exhortation to wait for the Lord.

It seems like the whole world is in a unique time of both fear and waiting right now.

Describe another time of waiting you have experienced in your life. What was or has been the most difficult part of that experience? What was or has been the most rewarding?

How should the waiting of those who are believers look different than those who don't know the Lord?

Read the words that Paul writes from prison in Colossians 4:2-6 aloud.

Is waiting on the Lord a passive state, or an active one? What three things did Paul encourage the Colossians to do in this passage?

What is one practical way you can actively seek to wait on the Lord this week? What is one way you can encourage someone else in their waiting?

Psalm 16

 

Supplemental Scripture Reading

John 10:1-18Consider how, much like Psalm 16, Jesus affirms us in his Word that he will not let go of his followers. 

Music

Psalm 59:16 says, I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress. While nothing can replace coming together as one body, and praising God with one voice, we are grateful for our Music & Worship Director, Michael Clutz who has provided a few ways for us to sing wherever we are this morning.

If you have access to a guitar or piano and are able, we encourage you to use the sheet music to "sing aloud of His love" this morning.

If you don't have access to an instrument, or ability to play one, there are lyric video links for each song that you can play and sing along to, or listen to as a time of reflection this morning.

Around the Table

These questions seek to create discussion around the theme of this week's passage as a family, one-on-one, or in a small group, for all ages.

Psalm 16
In verse 2 of this Psalm, David says that apart from God, he has no good thing.

What would you say is typically your favorite part of a normal week? What are some of the things or experiences in life that you enjoy the most?

Is it okay to enjoy things other than God (family, friends, possessions, etc,)? When do they become idols?

Read James 1:2-3 aloud.

When faced with hardships, trials, and the loss of the things we enjoy, we can be tempted to seek a quick resolution instead of a reason for joy. Whether it is this time of isolation, or another hardship in your life, how have you seen God's inheritance through these circumstances?

What does it look like this week to "count it all joy?"
