Third Sunday after the Epiphany


Announcements


Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 19


1 The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.

2 Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge.

3 There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard;

4 yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In the heavens he has set a tent for the sun,

5 which comes out like a bridegroom from his wedding canopy, and like a strong man runs its course with joy.

6 Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them; and nothing is hid from its heat.

7 The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the decrees of the Lord are sure, making wise the simple;

8 the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is clear, enlightening the eyes;

9 the fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever; the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey, and drippings of the honeycomb.

11 Moreover by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.

12 But who can detect their errors? Clear me from hidden faults.

13 Keep back your servant also from the insolent; do not let them have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression.

14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.


“Spirit of the Living God”

Hymn #297


Spirit of the living God

Fall fresh on me.

Spirit of the living God,

Fall fresh on me.

Melt me, mold me,

Fill me, use me.

Spirit of the living God

Fall fresh on me.


“The Comforter Has Come”

Hymn #291


O spread the tidings 'round Wherever man is found, Wherever human hearts and human woes abound; Let every Christian tongue proclaim the joyful sound: The Comforter has come!


Refrain: The Comforter has come, the Comforter has come! The Holy Ghost from heaven, the Father's promise given; O spread the tidings 'round wherever man is found: The Comforter has come!

2 The long, long night is past, the morning breaks at last, And hushed the dreadful wail and fury of the blast, As o'er the golden hills the day advances fast! The Comforter has come!


Refrain: The Comforter has come, the Comforter has come! The Holy Ghost from heaven, the Father's promise given; O spread the tidings 'round wherever man is found: The Comforter has come!


3 Lo, the great King of kings with healing in His wings, To every captive soul a full deliverance brings; And through the vacant cells the song of triumph rings; The Comforter has come!


Refrain: The Comforter has come, the Comforter has come! The Holy Ghost from heaven, the Father's promise given; O spread the tidings 'round wherever man is found: The Comforter has come!


4 O boundless Love divine! how shall this tongue of mine To wondering mortals tell the matchless grace divine: That I, a child of hell, should in His image shine! The Comforter has come!


Refrain: The Comforter has come, the Comforter has come! The Holy Ghost from heaven, the Father's promise given; O spread the tidings 'round wherever man is found: The Comforter has come!


“Beulah Land”

Hymn #527


I’ve reached the land of corn and wine, And all its riches freely mine; Here shines undimmed one blissful day, For all my night has passed away.


Refrain: O Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land, As on thy highest mount I stand, I look away across the sea, Where mansions are prepared for me, And view the shining glory shore, My heav’n, my home forevermore!


My Savior comes and walks with me, And sweet communion here have we; He gently leads me by His hand, For this is Heaven’s borderland.


Refrain: O Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land, As on thy highest mount I stand, I look away across the sea, Where mansions are prepared for me, And view the shining glory shore, My heav’n, my home forevermore!


A sweet perfume upon the breeze, Is borne from ever vernal trees, And flow’rs that never fading grow Where streams of life forever flow.


Refrain: O Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land, As on thy highest mount I stand, I look away across the sea, Where mansions are prepared for me, And view the shining glory shore, My heav’n, my home forevermore!


The zephyrs seem to float to me, Sweet sounds of Heaven’s melody, As angels with the white-robed throng Join in the sweet redemption song.


Refrain: O Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land, As on thy highest mount I stand, I look away across the sea, Where mansions are prepared for me, And view the shining glory shore, My heav’n, my home forevermore!


“Dwelling in the Beulah Land”

Hymn #517


1 Far away the noise of strife upon my ear is falling, Then I know the sins of earth beset on every hand; Doubt and fear and things of earth in vain to me are calling, None of these shall move me from Beulah Land.


Refrain: I’m living on the mountain, underneath a cloudless sky; I’m drinking at the fountain that never shall run dry; O yes! I’m feasting on the manna from a bountiful supply, For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.


2 Far below the storm of doubt upon the world is beating, Sons of men in battle long the enemy withstand; Safe am I within the castle of God’s word retreating, Nothing there can reach me, ’tis Beulah Land.


Refrain: I’m living on the mountain, underneath a cloudless sky; I’m drinking at the fountain that never shall run dry; O yes! I’m feasting on the manna from a bountiful supply, For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.


3 Let the stormy breezes blow, their cry cannot alarm me, I am safely sheltered here, protected by God’s hand; Here the sun is always shining, Here there’s naught can harm me, I am safe forever in Beulah Land.


Refrain: I’m living on the mountain, underneath a cloudless sky; I’m drinking at the fountain that never shall run dry; O yes! I’m feasting on the manna from a bountiful supply, For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.


4 Viewing here the works of God, I sink in contemplation; Hearing now His blessed voice, I see the way He planned; Dwelling in the Spirit, here I learn of full salvation, Gladly I will tarry in Beulah Land.


Refrain: I’m living on the mountain, underneath a cloudless sky; I’m drinking at the fountain that never shall run dry; O yes! I’m feasting on the manna from a bountiful supply, For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.


Scripture: Nehemiah 8:1-3, 5-6, 8-10


1 all the people gathered together into the square before the Water Gate. They told the scribe Ezra to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the Lord had given to Israel. 2 Accordingly, the priest Ezra brought the law before the assembly, both men and women and all who could hear with understanding. This was on the first day of the seventh month. 3 He read from it facing the square before the Water Gate from early morning until midday, in the presence of the men and the women and those who could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive to the book of the law.


5 And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people, for he was standing above all the people; and when he opened it, all the people stood up. 6 Then Ezra blessed the Lord, the great God, and all the people answered, "Amen, Amen," lifting up their hands. Then they bowed their heads and worshiped the Lord with their faces to the ground.


8 So they read from the book, from the law of God, with interpretation. They gave the sense, so that the people understood the reading. 9 And Nehemiah, who was the governor, and Ezra the priest and scribe, and the Levites who taught the people said to all the people, "This day is holy to the Lord your God; do not mourn or weep." For all the people wept when they heard the words of the law. 10 Then he said to them, "Go your way, eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions of them to those for whom nothing is prepared, for this day is holy to our Lord; and do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength."

Scripture: Luke 4:14-21


14 Then Jesus, filled with the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee, and a report about him spread through all the surrounding country.

15 He began to teach in their synagogues and was praised by everyone.

16 When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read,

17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written:

18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free,

19 to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."

20 And he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him.

21 Then he began to say to them, "Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing."


“Holy Spirit”


There's nothing worth more,that will ever come close No thing can compare, You're our living hope Your Presence (Lord) [Verse 2] I've tasted and seen, of the sweetest of Loves Where my heart becomes free, and my shame is undone In Your Presence (Lord) [Chorus] Holy Spirit You are welcome here Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere Your Glory God is what our hearts long for To be overcome by Your Presence Lord Bridge Let us become more aware of Your Presence Let us experience the Glory of Your Goodness


“Nothing to Fear”


When you pass through the waters I will be with you And the depths of the river shall not overwhelm When you walk through the fire you will not be burned I am the Lord, I am the Lord

And there is nothing to fear, nothing to fear There is nothing to fear, nothing to fear For I am with you always

In the depths of your sorrow I wept beside you When you walked through the shadow I drew you near And yesterday, today, tomorrow, always the same I am the Lord, I am the Lord

And there is nothing to fear, nothing to fear There is nothing to fear, nothing to fear For I am with you always

And there is nothing to fear, nothing to fear There is nothing to fear, nothing to fear For I am with you always

What can separate you from My perfect Love? What can separate you from My perfect Love? What can separate you from My perfect Love? Do not fear Do not fear Do not fear


Scripture: 1 Corinthians 12:12-31


12 For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.

13 For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.

14 Indeed, the body does not consist of one member but of many.

15 If the foot would say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," that would not make it any less a part of the body.

16 And if the ear would say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body," that would not make it any less a part of the body.

17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole body were hearing, where would the sense of smell be?

18 But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose.

19 If all were a single member, where would the body be?

20 As it is, there are many members, yet one body.

21 The eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you," nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you."

22 On the contrary, the members of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable,

23 and those members of the body that we think less honorable we clothe with greater honor, and our less respectable members are treated with greater respect;

24 whereas our more respectable members do not need this. But God has so arranged the body, giving the greater honor to the inferior member,

25 that there may be no dissension within the body, but the members may have the same care for one another.

26 If one member suffers, all suffer together with it; if one member is honored, all rejoice together with it.

27 Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.

28 And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers; then deeds of power, then gifts of healing, forms of assistance, forms of leadership, various kinds of tongues.

29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles?

30 Do all possess gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret?

31 But strive for the greater gifts. And I will show you a still more excellent way.
