Coram Deo – Before The Face Of
God
• By Faith, turn to the real Savior

God’s promises
• Take the time to think about what you
really want as individuals and as a
church.
• Meditate on the promise that we shall see
the Salvation of the Lord!
Communion.
• We have Communion weekly, because
we have church weekly (1Cor. 16:2,
11:18; Acts 2:42; Rev. 1:10).
• We take Communion with solemnity and
joy because our Savior died for us (c.f.
1Cor 15:1ff It is of “first importance”)
• We apply the sermon text to the weekly
Communion, so we do not interpret it apart
from Gospel lenses. Read Heb. 3:1-6
Glorify the Builder!
