Getting Ready for Sunday December 27th at The Crossing


This week Kermit Summerall takes a break from our John series with a sermon entitled, “The One Thing We Take for Granted” from Exodus 34:6. The Scripture reads,

And he [the Lord] passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.

What have you taken for granted this year? It’s a tricky question. It’s hard sometimes to stop and be aware of what we’re taking for granted, precisely because it’s usually so mundane. Moreover, we take things for granted not just because they’re everyday, but because they’re dependable—they’re always there. But what if there are really crucial things that we’re taking for granted that we shouldn’t? Join us Sunday as Kermit helps us take a fresh look at God and what we shouldn’t take for granted when it comes to him.

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

O Come, All Ye Faithful [lyrics; Chris Tomlin version] – John Francis Wade; translated by Frederick Oakeley and William Brooke
