PRELUDE

Beautiful Savior, Fairest Lord Jesus.

 

CALL TO WORSHIP

ROMANS 9:4-8

4 To the Israelites belong the adoption, the glory,
the covenants, the giving of the law,
the worship, and the promises.
5 To them belong the patriarchs,
and from their race, according to the flesh,
is the Christ, who is God over all, blessed forever.
Amen.

6 But it is not as though the word of God has failed.
For not all who are descended from Israel belong to Israel,
7 and not all are children of Abraham
because they are his offspring,
but “Through Isaac shall your offspring be named.”
8 This means that it is not the children of the flesh
who are the children of God,
but all the children of the promise
are counted as offspring. 

 

PRAISE & WORSHIP

HOLY, HOLY, HOLY (HYMN 70)
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, Holy, Holy! Merciful and Mighty!
God in Three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Holy, Holy, Holy! All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,
Which wert and art and evermore shalt be.

Holy, Holy, Holy! Though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;
Only Thou art holy—there is none beside Thee
Perfect in pow’r, in love and purity.

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy name in earth and sky and sea;
Holy, Holy, Holy! Merciful and Mighty!
God in Three Persons, blessed Trinity!

 

BUILD YOUR KINGDOM HERE by Rend Collective
Build Your kingdom here, let the darkness fear!
Show Your mighty hand, heal our streets and land,
Set Your church on fire! Win this nation back,
Change the atmosphere!
Build Your kingdom here, we pray!

Come set Your rule and reign in our hearts again.
Increase in us, we pray. Unveil why we’re made.
Come set our hearts ablaze with hope
Like wildfire in our very souls.
Holy Spirit, come, invade us now.
We are Your Church, and we need Your power in us.

We seek Your kingdom first, we hunger and we thirst,
Refuse to waste our lives, for You’re our joy and prize.
To see the captive hearts released, the hurt, the sick, the poor at peace,
We lay down our lives for Heaven’s cause.
We are Your church, and we pray, “Revive this earth!”

Unleash Your kingdom’s power, reaching the near and far.
No force of hell can stop your beauty-changing hearts.
You made us for much more than this.
Awake the kingdom seed in us.
Fill us with the strength and love of Christ.
We are Your church, and we are the hope on earth.

HOLY SPIRIT by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend
Holy Spirit, living Breath of God,
Breathe new life into my willing soul!
Let the presence of the risen Lord
Come renew my  heart and make me whole!
Cause Your word to come alive in me!
Give me faith for what I cannot see!
Give me passion for Your purity!
Holy Spirit, breathe new life in me!

Holy Spirit, come abide within
May Your joy be seen in all I do—
Love enough to cover ev’ry sin
In each thought and deed and attitude,
Kindness to the greatest and the least,
Gentleness that sows the path of peace!
Turn my strivings into works of grace!
Breath of God, show Christ in all I do!

Holy Spirit, from creation’s birth
Giving life to all that God has made,
Show Your power once again on earth!
Cause Your church to hunger for Your ways!
Let the fragrance of our pray’rs arise!
Lead us on the road of sacrifice,
That in unity the face of Christ
May be clear for all the world to see!

MINISTRY OF THE WORD

Scripture:  Isaiah 64:1-4

Sermon: Actively Waiting

Acts 2

 

ONE BIG IDEA
God’s plans come together in his perfect time.

1) The Spirit empowers in amazing ways.

2) We can choose to live into the promises of God.

 

RESPONSE TO THE PREACHED WORD

BREATHE by Marie Barnett (Michael W. Smith)
This is the air I breathe, this is the air I breathe:
Your Holy presence living in me.

This is my daily bread, this is my daily bread:
Your very word, spoken to me.

And I’m desperate for you
And I’m lost without you.

CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER

 

SONG FOR THE NATIONS by Chris Christensen

May we be a shining light to the nations,
a shining light to the peoples of the earth;
till the whole world sees the glory of your name,
may your pure light shine through us.

May we bring a word of hope to the nations,
a word of life to the peoples of the earth;
till the whole world knows there’s salvation through your name,
may your mercy flow through us.

May we be a healing balm to the nations,
a healing balm to the peoples of the earth;
till the whole world knows the power of your name,
may your healing flow through us.

May we sing a song of joy to the nations,
a song of praise to the peoples of the earth;
till the whole world rings with the praises of your name,
may your song be sung through us.

May your kingdom come to the nations,
your will be done to the peoples of the earth;
till the whole world knows that Jesus Christ is Lord,
may your kingdom come in us.
G (© 1986 Integrity’s Hosanna! Music; ARR.; CCLI #692008)
