CALL TO WORSHIP

PSALM 133
A song of ascents. Of David.

1 How good and pleasant it is
    when brothers live together in unity! 

2 It is like precious oil poured on the head,
    running down on the beard,
running down on Aaron’s beard,
    down upon the collar of his robes.

3 It is as if the dew of Hermon
    were falling on Mount Zion.
For there the Lord bestows his blessing,
    even life forevermore.

 

PRAISE & WORSHIP

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!

 

BETTER IS ONE DAY  (Psalm 84) by Matt Redman
How lovely is your dwelling place, Oh Lord Almighty!
My soul longs and even faints for You,
For here my heart is satisfied, within your presence.
I sing beneath the shadow of your wings.

Better is one day in Your courts, Better is one day in Your house,
Better is one day in Your courts Than thousands elsewhere.

One thing I ask and I would seek: to see Your beauty,
To find You in the place Your glory dwells.

ALL CREATURES  by Francis of Assisi, music by David Crowder
All creatures of our God and King,
Lift up your voice and with us sing:
Oh, praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam,
Oh, praise Him! Oh, praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Thou rushing wind that art so strong,
Ye clouds that sail in heav’n along,
Oh, praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou rising moon in praise rejoice!
Ye lights of evening find a voice!
Oh, praise Him! Oh, praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Let all things their Creator bless
And worship Him in humbleness!
Oh, praise Him! Alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
And praise the Spirit three in one!
Oh, praise Him! Oh, praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

MINISTRY OF THE WORD

Scripture: Psalm 146

Sermon: Abundant Blessing
Deuteronomy 33 and 34

 

ONE BIG IDEA
Blessing is God’s desire for us. 

1) The love of our King is like no other. 

2) God knows and loves us by name. 

3) Intimate relationship with the Lord produces great fruit. 

 

RESPONSE TO THE PREACHED WORD

YOU ARE MY ALL IN ALL by Dennis Jernigan
You are my strength when I am weak,
You are the treasure that I seek:
You are my all in all.
Seeking you as a precious jewel,
Lord, to give up, I’d be a fool:
You are my all in all.

Jesus, Lamb of God,
Worthy is your name!

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame,
Rising again—I bless your name:
You are my all in all.
When I fall down you pick me up,
When I am dry you fill my cup—
You are my all in all.
D ©1991 Shepherd’s Heart Music, Inc.; CCLI #692008

 

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

 

IT IS YOU by Newsboys
As we lift up our hands,
will You meet us here?
As we call on Your name,
will You meet us here?
We have come to this place to worship You,
God of mercy and grace.

It is You we adore.
It is You, praises are for.
Only You, the Heavens declare:
It is You, It is You.

And Holy, Holy is our God Almighty,
And Holy, Holy is His name alone.
It is You we adore, It is You, only You.
