Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany


Announcements


Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 112:1-10

1 Praise the Lord! Happy are those who fear the Lord, who greatly delight in his commandments.

2 Their descendants will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.

3 Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever.

4 They rise in the darkness as a light for the upright; they are gracious, merciful, and righteous.

5 It is well with those who deal generously and lend, who conduct their affairs with justice.

6 For the righteous will never be moved; they will be remembered forever.

7 They are not afraid of evil tidings; their hearts are firm, secure in the Lord.

8 Their hearts are steady, they will not be afraid; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.

9 They have distributed freely, they have given to the poor; their righteousness endures forever; their horn is exalted in honor.

10 The wicked see it and are angry; they gnash their teeth and melt away; the desire of the wicked comes to nothing.


“Bless the Lord

Hymn #27


Bless the Lord, Oh my soul

And all that is within me

Bless His holy name.


He has done great things.

He has done great things.

He has done great things,

Bless His holy name.


“Since Jesus Came into my Heart”

Hymn #420


1. What a wonderful change in

my life has been wrought

Since Jesus came into my heart!

I have light in my soul

for which long I had sought,

Since Jesus came into my heart.


Since Jesus came into my heart,

Since Jesus came into my heart,

Floods of joy o’r my soul

Like the sea billows roll,

Since Jesus came into my heart.


2. I have ceased from my wandering

and going astray

Since Jesus came into my heart;

And my sins which were many

Are all washed away,

Since Jesus came into my heart.


Since Jesus came into my heart,

Since Jesus came into my heart,

Floods of joy o’r my soul

Like the sea billows roll,

Since Jesus came into my heart.


3. I’m possessed of a hope

That is steadfast and sure,

Since Jesus came into my heart;

And no dark clouds of doubt

Now my pathway obscure,

Since Jesus came into my heart.


Since Jesus came into my heart,

Since Jesus came into my heart,

Floods of joy o’r my soul

Like the sea billows roll,

Since Jesus came into my heart.


4. There’s a light in the valley

of death now for me,

Since Jesus came into my heart;

And the gates of the city

beyond I can see,

Since Jesus came into my heart.


Since Jesus came into my heart,

Since Jesus came into my heart,

Floods of joy o’r my soul

Like the sea billows roll,

Since Jesus came into my heart.


5. I shall go there to dwell

In that city I know,

Since Jesus came into my heart;

And I’m happy,

So happy, as onward I go,

Since Jesus came into my heart.


Since Jesus came into my heart,

Since Jesus came into my heart,

Floods of joy o’r my soul

Like the sea billows roll,

Since Jesus came into my heart.


“Jesus Saves”

Hymn #694


1. We have heard the joyful sound:

Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Spread the tidings all around:

Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Bear the news to ev’ry land;

Climb the steeps and cross the waves.

Onward! Tis our Lord’s command.

Jesus saves! Jesus saves!


2. Waft it on the rolling tide;

Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Tell the sinners far and wide:

Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Sing ye islands of the sea;

Echo back, ye ocean caves.

Earth shall keep her jubilee,

Jesus saves! Jesus saves!


3. Sing above the battle strife:

Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

By His death and endless life,

Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Sing it softly through the gloom,

When the heart for mercy craves;

Sing in triumph o’r the tomb:

Jesus saves! Jesus saves!


4. Give the winds a mighty voice:

Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Let the nations now rejoice:

Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Shout salvation full and free,

Highest hills and deepest caves.

This our song of victory:

Jesus saves! Jesus saves!


Scripture: Isaiah 58:1-12

1 Shout out, do not hold back! Lift up your voice like a trumpet! Announce to my people their rebellion, to the house of Jacob their sins.

2 Yet day after day they seek me and delight to know my ways, as if they were a nation that practiced righteousness and did not forsake the ordinance of their God; they ask of me righteous judgments, they delight to draw near to God.

3 "Why do we fast, but you do not see? Why humble ourselves, but you do not notice?" Look, you serve your own interest on your fast day, and oppress all your workers.

4 Look, you fast only to quarrel and to fight and to strike with a wicked fist. Such fasting as you do today will not make your voice heard on high.

5 Is such the fast that I choose, a day to humble oneself? Is it to bow down the head like a bulrush, and to lie in sackcloth and ashes? Will you call this a fast, a day acceptable to the Lord?

6 Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?

7 Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover them, and not to hide yourself from your own kin?

8 Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up quickly; your vindicator shall go before you, the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.

9 Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry for help, and he will say, Here I am. If you remove the yoke from among you, the pointing of the finger, the speaking of evil,

10 if you offer your food to the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted, then your light shall rise in the darkness and your gloom be like the noonday.

11 The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your needs in parched places, and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters never fail.

12 Your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to live in.


Offering


Doxology

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns”


Scripture: 1 Corinthians 2:1-12


1 When I came to you, brothers and sisters, I did not come proclaiming the mystery of God to you in lofty words or wisdom.

2 For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

3 And I came to you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling.

4 My speech and my proclamation were not with plausible words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Spirit and of power,

5 so that your faith might rest not on human wisdom but on the power of God.

6 Yet among the mature we do speak wisdom, though it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to perish.

7 But we speak God's wisdom, secret and hidden, which God decreed before the ages for our glory.

8 None of the rulers of this age understood this; for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

9 But, as it is written, "What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the human heart conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him"—

10 these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.

11 For what human being knows what is truly human except the human spirit that is within? So also no one comprehends what is truly God's except the Spirit of God.

12 Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit that is from God, so that we may understand the gifts bestowed on us by God.

“We Want to See Jesus Lifted High”

We want to see Jesus lifted high A banner that flies across this land That all men might see the truth and know

He is the way to Heaven

We want to see Jesus lifted high A banner that flies across this land That all men might see the truth and know He is the way to Heaven

We want to see we want to see We want to see Jesus lifted high We want to see we want to see

We want to see Jesus lifted high


Step by step we're moving forward Little by little we're taking ground Every prayer is a powerful weapon Strongholds come tumbling down

And down and down and down


We want to see Jesus lifted high A banner that flies across this land That all men might see the truth and know

He is the way to Heaven


We want to see we want to see We want to see Jesus lifted high We want to see we want to see

We want to see Jesus lifted high


We're gonna see we're gonna see

We're gonna see Jesus lifted high

We're gonna see we're gonna see

We're gonna see Jesus lifted high

Scripture: Matthew 5:13-20

13 "You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot.

14 "You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid.

15 No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.

16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.

17 "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.

18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished.

19 Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
