Invocation


Scripture: Genesis 29:15-28


15 Then Laban said to Jacob, "Because you are my kinsman, should you therefore serve me for nothing? Tell me, what shall your wages be?"

16 Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.

17 Leah's eyes were lovely, and Rachel was graceful and beautiful.

18 Jacob loved Rachel; so he said, "I will serve you seven years for your younger daughter Rachel."

19 Laban said, "It is better that I give her to you than that I should give her to any other man; stay with me."

20 So Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed to him but a few days because of the love he had for her.

21 Then Jacob said to Laban, "Give me my wife that I may go in to her, for my time is completed."

22 So Laban gathered together all the people of the place, and made a feast.

23 But in the evening he took his daughter Leah and brought her to Jacob; and he went in to her.

24 (Laban gave his maid Zilpah to his daughter Leah to be her maid.)

25 When morning came, it was Leah! And Jacob said to Laban, "What is this you have done to me? Did I not serve with you for Rachel? Why then have you deceived me?"

26 Laban said, "This is not done in our country—giving the younger before the firstborn.

27 Complete the week of this one, and we will give you the other also in return for serving me another seven years."

28 Jacob did so, and completed her week; then Laban gave him his daughter Rachel as a wife.


“Sanctifying Power”

Hymn #509

There is sanctifying pow’r,

Like a sweet refreshing show’r.

Waiting for each consecrated heart:

Pow’r to cleanse us from all sin,

Pow’r to keep us pure within,

Pow’r for service which He will impart.


I’m so glad,

I’m so glad,

For this saving, Sanctifying pow’r!

Waves of glory

O’er me roll;

Peace abides within my soul.

I’m so glad for this sanctifying pow’r.


I’m so glad it reaches me,

All unworthy tho’ I be,

Overcoming grace made freely mine.

Since the comforter abides,

And within my heart resides,

I am walking in the light divine.


I’m so glad,

I’m so glad,

For this saving, Sanctifying pow’r!

Waves of glory

O’er me roll;

Peace abides within my soul.

I’m so glad for this sanctifying pow’r.


This God’s will for you and me,

That we sanctified should be,

Dwelling in this land of plenteousness.

Fling your doubts and fears aside;

Boldly cross the Jordan’s tide,

And your heritage in Christ possess.


I’m so glad,

I’m so glad,

For this saving, Sanctifying pow’r!

Waves of glory

O’er me roll;

Peace abides within my soul.

I’m so glad for this sanctifying pow’r.


Songs of praises let us sing

To our blessed Lord and King

For this great salvation rich and free:

Ev’ry needed grace supplied,

Ev’ry longing satisfied,

Saved for time and for eternity.


I’m so glad,

I’m so glad,

For this saving, Sanctifying pow’r!

Waves of glory

O’er me roll;

Peace abides within my soul.

I’m so glad for this sanctifying pow’r.


“Dwelling in Beulah Land”

Hymn #517


Far away the noise of strife

Upon my ear is falling;

Then I know the sins of earth

beset on ev’ry hand.

Doubt and fear and things of earth

in vain to me are calling:

None of these shall move me

from Beulah Land.


I’m living on the mountain,

Underneath a cloudless sky.

I’m drinking at the fountain

that never shall run dry.

Oh yes, I’m feasting on the manna

From a bountiful supply,

For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.


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 then can reach me-

‘tis Beulah Land.


I’m living on the mountain,

Underneath a cloudless sky.

I’m drinking at the fountain

that never shall run dry.

Oh yes, I’m feasting on the manna

From a bountiful supply,

For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.


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.


I’m living on the mountain,

Underneath a cloudless sky.

I’m drinking at the fountain

that never shall run dry.

Oh yes, I’m feasting on the manna

From a bountiful supply,

For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.


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 will I tarry

In Beulah Land.


I’m living on the mountain,

Underneath a cloudless sky.

I’m drinking at the fountain

that never shall run dry.

Oh yes, I’m feasting on the manna

From a bountiful supply,

For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.


Scripture: Psalm 119:129-136


129 Your decrees are wonderful; therefore my soul keeps them.

130 The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple.

131 With open mouth I pant, because I long for your commandments.

132 Turn to me and be gracious to me, as is your custom toward those who love your name.

133 Keep my steps steady according to your promise, and never let iniquity have dominion over me.

134 Redeem me from human oppression, that I may keep your precepts.

135 Make your face shine upon your servant, and teach me your statutes.

136 My eyes shed streams of tears because your law is not kept.

Doxology


Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns


Scripture: Matthew 13:31-33, 44-52


31 He put before them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field;

32 it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches."

33 He told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened."


4 "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

45 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls;

46 on finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.

47 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was thrown into the sea and caught fish of every kind;

48 when it was full, they drew it ashore, sat down, and put the good into baskets but threw out the bad.

49 So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous

50 and throw them into the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

51 "Have you understood all this?" They answered, "Yes."

52 And he said to them, "Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like the master of a household who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old."

“You Are My King (Amazing Love)”


I'm forgiven because You were forsaken

I'm accepted, You were condemned

I'm alive and well, Your Spirit is within me

Because You died and rose again


Amazing love, how can it be

That You, my King, should die for me?

Amazing love, I know it's true

And it's my joy to honor You

In all I do, to honor You

I'm forgiven because You were forsaken

I'm accepted, You were condemned

I'm alive and well, Your Spirit is within me

Because You died and rose again


Amazing love, how can it be

That You, my King, should die for me?

Amazing love, I know it's true

And it's my joy to honor You


In all I do, to honor You

You are my King

You are my King

Jesus, You are my King

You are my King


Amazing love, how can it be

That You, my King, should die for me?

Amazing love, I know it's true

And it's my joy to honor You

Amazing love, how can it be

That You, my King, should die for me?


Amazing love, I know it's true

And it's my joy to honor You

In all I do, to honor You

In all I do, I honor You


Scripture: Romans 8:26-39


26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words.

27 And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

28 We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.

29 For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn within a large family.

30 And those whom he predestined he also called; and those whom he called he also justified; and those whom he justified he also glorified.

31 What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us?

32 He who did not withhold his own Son, but gave him up for all of us, will he not with him also give us everything else?

33 Who will bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies.

34 Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us.

35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written, "For your sake we are being killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep to be slaughtered."

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,

39 nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
