CALL TO WORSHIP

 
I Thessalonians 5:12-22

12 We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you
and are over you in the Lord and admonish you,
13 and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work.
Be at peace among yourselves.
14 And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle,
encourage the fainthearted, help the weak,
be patient with them all.
15 See that no one repays anyone evil for evil,
but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone.
16 Rejoice always,
17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
19 Do not quench the Spirit.
20 Do not despise prophecies, 21 but test everything;
hold fast what is good.
22 Abstain from every form of evil.

 

PRAISE & WORSHIP

HOW DEEP THE FATHER’S LOVE FOR US by Stuart Townend

 
How deep the Father’s love for us—how vast beyond all measure—
That He would give His only Son to make a wretch His treasure!
How great the pain of searing loss! The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One Bring many sons to glory.

Behold the Man upon a cross, my guilt upon His shoulders!
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held Him there until it was accomplished;
His dying breath has brought me life. I know that it is finished.

I will not boast in anything—no gifts, no pow’rs, no wisdom—
But I will boast in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection.
Why should I gain from His reward? I cannot give an answer,
But this I know with all my heart: His wounds have paid my ransom.

DAYS OF ELIJAH, words and music by Robin Mark

 
These are the days of Elijah, declaring the Word of the Lord;
And these are the days of Your servant, Moses, righteousness being restored;
And though these are days of great trials, of famine and darkness and sword,
Still we are the voice in the desert crying, “Prepare ye the way of the Lord.”

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds, shining like the sun at the trumpet call;
Lift your voice, it’s the year of Jubilee, and out of Zion’s hill salvation comes.

And these are the days of Ezekiel, the dry bones becoming as flesh;
And these are the days of Your servant, David, rebuilding a temple of praise;
And these are the days of the harvest—the fields are as white in the world;
And we are the laborers in Your vineyard, declaring the Word of the Lord.

There is no god like Jehovah (repeat)

MY SAVIOR, MY GOD by Aaron Shust

 
I am not skilled to understand
What God has willed, what God has planned;
I only know at His right hand
Stands One who is my Savior.
I take Him at his word and deed:
Christ died to save me, this I read,
And in my heart I find a need of Him to be my Savior.
That He would leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die,
You count it strange; so once did I,
before I knew my Savior.

My Savior loves, my Savior lives;
My Savior’s always there for me.
My God He was, my God He is,
My God He’s always going to be.

Yes, living, dying, let me bring
My strength, my solace from this spring!
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior,
That He would leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die—
You count it strange; so once did I,
before I knew my Savior!

 

THY WORD by Amy Grant (Ps. 119:109)

 
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.

When I feel afraid And think I’ve lost my way,
Still, you’re there right beside me.
Nothing will I fear As long as you are near.
Please be near me to the end.

I will not forget your love for me and yet,
My heart forever is wandering.
Jesus, be my guide, Hold me to your side,
And I will love you to the end.

RESPONSE TO TEACHING OF THE WORD

BE IT UNTO ME by Don Moen & Claire Cloninger

 
You promised your blood will deliver; Lord, we believe it’s true;
You’ve promised us joy like a river; Lord, we receive it from You.
These things you have spoken and You’re bringing to pass;
This world’s disappearing, but Your Word will last. So. . . 

Be it unto me according to Your Word;
according to Your promises, I can stand secure;
Carve upon my heart the truth that sets me free,
according to Your Word, O Lord,
be it unto me.

You promised to carry our sorrows; Lord, we believe it’s true;
You’ve promised unending tomorrows;
Lord, we receive them from You.
You’ll be our provider; in Your Word it’s revealed;
By the stripes that you bore, Lord, we have been healed. So. . .

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

 

NEAR THE CROSS (HYMN 351) by Fannie J. Crosby (1869)

 
Jesus, keep me near the cross! There a precious fountain
Free to all, a healing stream flows from Calvary’s mountain.

In the cross, in the cross, be my glory ever;
Till my raptured soul shall find rest beyond the river.

Near the cross, a trembling soul, love and mercy found me;
There the bright and morning star sheds its beams around me.

Near the cross! O Lamb of God, bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day, with its shadows o’er me.

Near the cross I’ll watch and wait, hoping, trusting ever,
Till I reach the golden strand, just beyond the river.
