CALL TO WORSHIP

PSALM 119:33-48
He
33 Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes;
and I will keep it to the end.
34 Give me understanding, that I may keep your law
and observe it with my whole heart.
35 Lead me in the path of your commandments,
for I delight in it.
36 Incline my heart to your testimonies,
and not to selfish gain!
37 Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things;
and give me life in your ways.
38 Confirm to your servant your promise,
that you may be feared.
39 Turn away the reproach that I dread,
for your rules are good.
40 Behold, I long for your precepts;
in your righteousness, give me life!

 

PRAISE & WORSHIP

Turn your eyes upon Jesus

BE MAGNIFIED by Lynn DeShazo
I have made You too small in my eyes—
Oh Lord, forgive me—
And I have believed in a lie
that You were unable to help me.

But now, oh Lord, I see my wrong.
Heal my heart and show Yourself strong;
and in my eyes and with my song,
Oh Lord, be magnified. Oh Lord, be magnified!

Be magnified, oh Lord! You are highly exalted
and there is nothing you can’t do.
Oh Lord, my eyes are on you.
Be magnified, Oh Lord, be magnified!

I have leaned on the wisdom of men.
Oh Lord, forgive me;
And I have responded to them
Instead of Your light and Your mercy.

But now, oh Lord, I see my wrong.
Heal my heart and show Yourself strong;
and in my eyes and with my song,
Oh Lord, be magnified! Oh Lord, be magnified!

OPEN THE EYES OF MY HEART, LORD by Paul Baloche
Open the eyes of my heart, Lord!
Open the eyes of my heart, Lord!
I want to see you, I want to see you:

See you high and lifted up,
shining in the light of your glory.
Pour out your power and love
as we sing Holy, Holy, holy;
Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy,
Holy, holy, holy. I want to see you.

HERE I AM TO WORSHIP by Tim Hughes
Light of the world, You stepped down into darkness,
Opened my eyes, let me see
Beauty that makes this heart adore You,
Hope of a life spent with You.

Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that you’re my God.
You’re altogether lovely,
Altogether worthy, 
Altogether wonderful to me.

King of all days, so highly exalted,
Glorious in heaven above.
Humbly you came to the earth you created,
All for love’s sake became poor.

I’ll never know how much it cost,
to see my sin upon that cross.

MINISTRY OF THE WORD

Scripture: Isaiah 25:6-9

SERMON: Disciple Training
Luke 9:10-36

 

ONE BIG IDEA
We are constantly invited to go deeper
in our praise of and obedience to our glorious Lord.

1) Little is much in the hands of Jesus.

2) Jesus came on a sacrificial mission and we are called to follow his selfless path.

3) The glory of Jesus demands a response.

 

RESPONSE TO THE WORD

COME, PEOPLE OF THE RISEN KING, Words and Music by Keith and Kristyn Getty and Stuart Townend
Come, people of the Risen King,
Who delight to bring Him praise;
Come all and tune your hearts to sing
To the Morning Star of grace.
From the shifting shadows of the earth
We will lift our eyes to Him,
Where steady arms of mercy reach
To gather children in.

Rejoice, Rejoice! Let every tongue rejoice!
One heart, one voice; O Church of Christ, rejoice!

Come, those whose joy is morning sun,
And those weeping through the night;
Come, those who tell of battles won,
And those struggling in the fight.
For His perfect love will never change,
And His mercies never cease,
But follow us through all our days
With the certain hope of peace.

Come, young and old from every land—
Men and women of the faith;
Come, those with full or empty hands—
Find the riches of His grace.
Over all the world, His people sing—
Shore to shore we hear them call
The Truth that cries through every age:
“Our God is all in all”!

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

 

TURN YOUR EYES UPON JESUS (HYMN 204)
O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
in the light of His glory and grace.

Through death into life everlasting
He passed and we follow Him there;
Over us sin no more hath dominion—
for more than conqu’rors we are!

His word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell.
