-       **Call to Worship: Psalm 150

-      **Sing

o   Song recommendations: “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” “Is He Worthy?

§  Why These Songs? Our sermon text today focuses in closely on our own hearts as the source and fountain of our sin. This leads us to long for the day when we will be fully and totally removed from the presence of sin. Both of these songs look forward to the day when we will be freed from sinning and will only enjoy the One who is worthy.

§  If you prefer, feel free to find other songs that exalt Christ, flow from Scripture, and prepare your heart to receive the Word.

-       **Scripture reading: Colossians 2:16-23

o   Think: Here we see the regulations surrounding the old covenant (dietary restrictions, festivals, Sabbaths) were only shadows that pointed towards Christ and His work. Trying to keep these regulations may have an “appearance of godliness” but they ultimately lack any power in stopping the sinful desires of our hearts—the true source of defilement.
