CALL TO WORSHIP

DANIEL 7:9-14
9 “As I looked, thrones were placed,
and the Ancient of Days took his seat;
his clothing was white as snow,
and the hair of his head like pure wool;
his throne was fiery flames; its wheels were burning fire.
10 A stream of fire issued and came out from before him;
a thousand thousands iserved him,
and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him;
the court sat in judgment,
and the books were opened.
. . .
13 “In the night I  saw visions,
and behold, with the clouds of heaven
there came one like a son of man,
and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him.
14 And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom,
so that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him;
his dominion is an everlasting dominion,
which shall not pass away,
and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed.

 

PRAISE & WORSHIP

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”!

HIS MERCY IS MORE by Matt Boswell and Matt Papa
What love could remember no wrongs we have done?
Omniscient, all knowing, He counts not their sum—
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore,
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more.

Praise the Lord! His mercy is more!
Stronger than darkness, new every morn,
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more.

What patience would wait as we constantly roam,
What Father so tender is calling us home,
He welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor—
Our sins they are many His mercy is more.

What riches of kindness He lavished on us,
His blood was the payment, His life was the cost.
We stood ‘neath a debt we could never afford,
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more.

ANCIENT OF DAYS
Though the nations rage, kingdoms rise and fall,
There is still one King reigning over all.
So I will not fear, for this truth remains
That my God is the Ancient of Days.

None above Him, none before Him,
All of time in His hands.
For His throne, it shall remain and ever stand.
All the power, all the glory!
I will trust in His name
For my God is the Ancient of days.

Though the dread of night overwhelms my soul,
He is here with me; I am not alone.
O His love is sure and He knows my name,
For my God is the Ancient of Days

Though I may not see what the future brings,
I will watch and wait for the Saviour king.
Then my joy omplete, standing face to face
In the presence of the Ancient of Days.

For my God is the Ancient of Days!

MINISTRY OF THE WORD

Scripture: Colossians 3:12-17

 

SERMON:
Take it in, Live it out
Luke 6:37-49

 

RESPONSE TO THE PREACHED WORD

THE SOLID ROCK (HYMN 272)
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ the solid rock I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils his lovely face
I rest on his unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil.

His oath, his covenant, his blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.

When he shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in him be found,
Dressed in his righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

 

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

 

IN CHRIST ALONE by Keith Getty & Stuart Townend
In Christ alone my hope is found:
He is my light, my strength, my song—
This Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm!
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All!
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! —who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This Gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save,
Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied—
For every sin on Him was laid:
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain,
Then bursting forth in glorious Day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death:
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till he returns or calls me home;
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand!
