Call to Worship                                                                      Psalm 96:1-2

Affirmation of Faith:            Westminster Larger Catechism, Q. and A. 90

Q. What shall be done to the righteous at the day of judgment?

A. At the day of judgment, the righteous, being caught up to Christ in the clouds, shall be set on his right hand, and there openly acknowledged and acquitted, shall join with him in the judging of reprobate angels and men, and shall be received into heaven, where they shall be fully and for ever freed from all sin and misery; filled with inconceivable joys, made perfectly holy and happy both in body and soul, in the company of innumerable saints and holy angels, but especially in the immediate vision and fruition of God the Father, of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of the Holy Spirit, to all eternity. And this is the perfect and full communion, which the members of the invisible Church shall enjoy with Christ in glory, at the resurrection and day of judgment.

Outline: Jeremiah 9:23-24     “Christ: The Power and Wisdom of God”

God’s people must not boast either in themselves or in the gifts that God has given them, but must boast in who God is, in what He has done, and in their knowledge of and relationship with Him through union with Christ, the power and wisdom of God.


 Do not boast

In Yourself




Example: Nebuchadnezzar

In the gifts God has given you




Example: Solomon

Application: The end of boasting in self

Do boast

In God himself

In God’s works

In the knowledge of God

Knowledge and understanding

Application: The end of boasting in God

How do we know and understand God better?




Luke 10:17-20



  • Romans 11:33-36

    Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!
    For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been His counselor? Or who has given a gift to Him that he might be repaid?
    For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen.
