CALL TO WORSHIP

PSALM 138
Give Thanks to the Lord

1  I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart;
before the gods I sing your praise;
2  I bow down toward your holy temple
and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your ­faithfulness,
for you have exalted above all things
your name and your word.
3  On the day I called, you answered me;
my strength of soul you increased.

4  All the kings of the earth shall give you thanks, O Lord,
for they have heard the words of your mouth,
5  and they shall sing of the ways of the Lord,
for great is the glory of the Lord.
6  For though the Lord is high, he regards the lowly,
but the haughty he knows from afar.

7  Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you preserve my life;
you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies,
and your right hand delivers me.
8  The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me;
your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.
Do not forsake the work of your hands.

 

PRAISE & WORSHIP

LET US EXALT HIS NAME TOGETHER (from Psalm 34) by Stuart Dauermann
At all times I will bless Him; His praise will be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the Lord.
The humble man will hear of Him; the afflicted will be glad
And join with me to magnify the Lord.

Let us exalt His name together forever.
I sought the Lord; He heard me and delivered me from my fears.
Let us exalt His name together forever.
Oh, sing His praises, magnify the Lord.

The angel of the Lord encamps ’round those who fear his name
To save them and deliver them from harm.
Though lions roar with hunger, we lack for no good thing.
No wonder, then, we praise Him with our song.

Come, children, now and hear me if you would see long life.
Just keep your lips from wickedness and lies.
Do good and turn from evil; seek peace instead of strife.
Love righteousness and God will hear your cry.

THERE IS A REDEEMER by Melody Green
There is a Redeemer: Jesus, God’s own Son,
Precious Lamb of God, Messiah, Holy One.

Thank You, O my Father,
for giving us Your Son;
And leaving Your Spirit ’til
the work on earth is done.

Jesus, my Redeemer, Name above all names,
Precious Lamb of God, Messiah,
hope for sinners slain.

When I stand in glory I will see His face,
And there I’ll serve my King forever
in that holy place.

SALVATION BELONGS TO OUR GOD by Adrian Howard and Pat Turner
Salvation belongs to our God who sits upon the throne
And unto the Lamb:

Praise and glory, wisdom and thanks,
honor and power and strength
be to our God forever and ever,
be to our God forever and ever,
be to our God forever and ever! Amen.

And we the redeemed shall be strong
In purpose and unity declaring aloud . . .

SHINE, JESUS, SHINE by Graham Kendrick
Lord, the light of Your love is shining
in the midst of the darkness shining;
Jesus, Light of the World, shine upon us,
set us free by the truth You now bring us,
Shine on me, shine on me.

Shine, Jesus, shine—
fill this land with the Father’s glory;
Blaze, Spirit, blaze—set our hearts on fire.
Flow, river, flow—
flood the nations with grace and mercy;
Send forth Your word, Lord,
and let there be light.

Lord, I come to Your awesome presence,
From the shadows into Your radiance;
By the blood I may enter Your brightness,
search me, try me, consume all my darkness,
Shine on me, shine on me. 

As we gaze on Your kingly brightness,
So our faces display Your likeness;
Ever changing from glory to glory,
Mirror’d here may our lives tell Your story,
Shine on me, shine on me.

MINISTRY OF THE WORD

Scripture: Joshua 1:6-9

Sermon: Embracing Victory
Deuteronomy 16-20

 

ONE BIG IDEA
Remember, celebrate, and embrace the victory in Jesus.

1) We are thankful for the victory.

2) We humbly and completely depend on the strength
and direction of the Lord.

3) We can live joyfully and victoriously even in the midst of struggle.

 

RESPONSE TO THE PREACHED WORD

MIGHTY TO SAVE by Reuben Morgan and Ben Fielding
Everyone needs compassion,
Love that’s never failing;
Let mercy fall on me!
Everyone needs forgiveness,
The kindness of a Saviour,
The hope of nations.

Saviour!
He can move the mountains.
My God is mighty to save,
He is mighty to save,
Forever.
Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave;
Jesus conquered the grave!

So take me as You find me,
All my fears and failures,
Fill my life again.
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in,
Now I surrender.

Shine your light
And let the whole world see,
We’re singing for the glory
Of the risen King, Jesus!
Shine your light
And let the whole world see,
We’re singing for the glory
Of the risen King!

CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER
Feel free to respond in prayer, aloud or silently, as the Lord leads.

 

HALLELUJAH! WHAT A SAVIOR! (HYMN 127)
Man of Sorrows! what a name
For the Son of God, who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In my place condemned He stood;
Sealed my pardon with His blood.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Guilty, vile, and helpless we;
Spotless Lamb of God was He;
“Full atonement!” can it be?
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Lifted up was He to die;
“It is finished!” was His cry;
Now in Heav’n exalted high.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

When He comes, our glorious King,
All His ransomed home to bring,
Then anew His song we’ll sing:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!
