Welcome, Church! This week we will be continuing to delve deeper into God’s creation as John talks to us about neuroscience. The message today is breaking down a psychological concept known as the theory of mind, and John is going to be talking about how we can see God in that mechanism within the brain, as well as what it means for Jesus to be fully human and fully God in the context of the human brain. Now, let us engage our minds as we listen to this music, think about these things, and worship our God together.
Give Thanks To God – Housefires
So Will I – Hillsong Worship
The book of Psalms ends with the following exultation:
“Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!” (Psalm 150:1-6, ESV)
We have so many reasons to praise the Lord, and we have so many ways to do so. Today, let us praise God together for the intricate perfection with which he created us and for the profound brilliance in the way our minds have been put together
Revelation Song – Jenn Johnson
You’re Beautiful – Phil Wickham
In Philippians 2, we are told this:
“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:5-11, ESV).
No One But You – Hillsong Worship
In the book of Matthew, Jesus states that the greatest commandment is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind… and the second is like it: you shall love your neighbour as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39). We are not simply called to love and worship God, but we are to love ourselves and love others also. These things are paired together because we can honor God, others, and ourselves by pointing out and naming where God is in creation. Church, today as we conclude our time of worship, I pray that we will be able to love one another in the ways we look, think, and talk to each other, and let us remember that we are all fearfully and wonderfully made.
