Worship Guide



Welcome!

We're so glad you are here. We hope you discover the same hope and life-change that we have found in Jesus. Discovery is more than just an hour on Sunday. We are a family -- family on mission in Tacoma!

We started Discovery to be a safe place for everyone in the community to experience God. Everyone is welcome here--with all your stories, questions, and doubts. Let's explore faith together.

Simple

Part 4 of 5: Doing

Pastor Jon Fredricks

Today’s Scripture: 1 John 2:26-29


1 John 2:26-29 (NIV)

I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray. As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him. And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming. If you know that he is righteous, you know that everyone who does what is right has been born of him.

2 Corinthians 5:15 (NIV)

And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

Mark 10:45 (NIV)

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.


Serve to Reflect the Father

Luke 15:1-7 (NIV)

Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus. But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.”

Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

John 6:28-29 (NIV)

Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?” Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”


Serve from Healthy Relationship

Romans 15:13 (NIV)

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

2 Corinthians 8:2 (NIV)

In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity.


Serve in Your Unique Giftedness

Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.


Serve – Just Do It – Carve it out! Practice!

1 John 2:27 (NIV)

As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you.

1 John 2:29 (NIV)

If you know that he is righteous, you know that everyone who does what is right has been born of him.


AFTER THE LIVESTREAM

Pray
Jesus, I know that I have been separate from you my entire life. I have tried to pretend otherwise, but I realize today that my decisions, choices...my sin has separated me from God. I believe you are the Son of God and my only way forward. Please save me as I surrender the rest of my life into your hands. Thank you that you hear me!
