June 11th Worship Program


Welcome!!

I’m glad to have you join us. Today we begin a new message series SOUL DETOX. Summer is here and for most of us it’s a time when we have been looking forward to for a while. It’s a chance to relax, unwind, go fishing, get down to the beach, or anything else we can do to break out of tired routines. However you plan to spend this summer, I want to encourage us to take some time to recharge spiritually as well. In SOUL DETOX we will discover again how to live the life that Jesus has planned for us.

Our church is a community of believers who come together to worship, pray, and learn from each other. We value the importance of family and strive to create an environment where individuals and families can grow closer to God and to each other.

At our church, we believe that everyone has the potential to impact the world. In our programs and ministries, we seek to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to make a difference in our communities and in the world.

So, if you are looking for a church home that seeks to make a positive impact in Rock Hall and the world, we invite you to join us. No matter who you are or where you come from, you are welcome here. We look forward to getting to know you and to growing in our faith together.

If you have any questions or want to discuss your faith journey, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly. My email is gary@yourrockhall.church and my office telephone is 410-639-2144.

Thank you again for joining us.

Pastor Gary

Benediction

Life is much more than an accident. Wherever I go, I believe God needs me there. Wherever I am, I trust God has put me there. He has a purpose for me being there -

Christ, alive in me, wants to do something through me, no matter where I am.

I believe this and go in His grace and His love and His power.


If you would like someone to pray with you, please come and meet one of our ministry leaders at the end of the service.

Message Notes

SOUL DETOX: THE RESTLESS SOUL


WE ARE NOT A BODY WITH A SOUL, WE ARE A SOUL WITH A BODY.


And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7 KJV


THE CURSE OF THE RESTLESS SOUL


Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand. 12 When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth. Genesis 4:11-12


What does a man get for all the toil and anxious striving with which he labors under the sun? 23 All his days his work is pain and grief; even at night his mind does not restEcclesiastes 2:22-23


WHERE DO WE FIND REST FOR OUR SOULS?

  • OUR SOULS FIND REST IN GOD ALONE.

My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. Psalm 62:1


“You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our soul is restless until it finds rest in you.” Augustine


Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:28-29


HOW DO WE FIND REST IN GOD?

  • BE STILL BEFORE GOD.

Be still, and know that I am GodPsalm 46:10


But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me. Psalm 131:2

  • WAIT FOR GOD.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for himPsalm 37:7


I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. 6 My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning… Psalm 130:5-6


What do you want to say to me?

What do you want to show me?

What do you want to do in me?

  • REFLECT ON GOD’S GOODNESS.

Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you. 8 For you, O Lord, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, 9 that I may walk before the Lord in the land of the living. Psalm 116:7-9

 

This week’s YouVersion Bible Reading Plan:

We are not a body with a soul. We are a soul with a body. While the world rightly teaches us to detox our bodies, sometimes we need to detox our soul. This 35-day plan will help you identify what's chipping away at your soul, and what's getting in the way of you becoming the person who God created you to be. You will learn from God's Word how you can neutralize these damaging influences and embrace clean living for your soul.
