   Sent with Hope – ecclesia!


Psalm 60

 

1    O God, you have rejected us, broken our defenses;
        you have been angry; oh, restore us.
2    You have made the land to quake; you have torn it open;
        repair its breaches, for it totters.
3    You have made your people see hard things;
        you have given us wine to drink that made us stagger.
      
4    You have set up a banner for those who fear you,
        that they may flee to it from the bow.       Selah

5    That your beloved ones may be delivered,
        give salvation by your right hand and answer us!

6    God has spoken in his holiness;
        "With exultation I will divide up Shechem

         and portion out the Vale of Succoth.
7     Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;
        Ephraim is my helmet;
        Judah is my scepter.
8    Moab is my washbasin;
        upon Edom I cast my shoe;
        over Philistia I shout in triumph."

9    Who will bring me to the fortified city?
        Who will lead me to Edom?
10   Have you not rejected us, O God?
        You do not go forth, O God, with our armies.
11   Oh, grant us help against the foe,
        for vain is the salvation of man!
12   With God we shall do valiantly;
        it is he who will tread down our foes.


My Beloved

My Beloved, bring me awake
Take me up to your resurrection place
My Beloved, bring me awake
'Cause I want to feel your light on my face

There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul
There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul
(Repeat all above)

   I see the light, I see the light
   I see the light, I see the light
   Oh thank you God, I see the light

My Beloved, bring me away
Over Jordan and out of this place
My Beloved, for you I wait
With you here 'til forever face to face

There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul
There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul

   Chorus

No more sorrow, no more pain
No more darkness weighing down on me
No longer blind, now I can see
Forever light, forever free...

Forever light, forever light
Forever light, forever light
I see the light, I see the light
I see the light, I see the light
Oh, thank you, God, I see the light

I see the light, I see the light
I see the light, I see the light
Oh thank you God, oh thank you God
I see the light


I've Been Changed

Well, I've been to the river, I've been baptized
I've been washed in the blood of the lamb
I've been changed from the creature that once I was
And "Redeemed" is now my name

   I've been changed
   I've been "new-born"
   All my life has been rearranged
   What a diff'rence it made
   When the Lord came and stayed in my heart
   Oh, yes, I've been changed

Though my sins were as scarlet, they're white as snow
I was bound, but today I am free
I was lost in darkness but now am found
I was blind but now I see

   Chorus

Like the poor Hebrew children, I wandered along
In a bare desert land to and fro
But I've crossed over Jordan to Canaan's land
Where the milk and honey flow

   Chorus

When at last in his presence I stand alone
He will wipe all the tears from my eyes
And I'll thank him for giving a wretch like me
Lasting hope beyond the skies

   Chorus


We are a Family

   We are a family, for Christ has made us one
   His blood is flowing through our veins
   We are sisters and brothers, daughters and sons

When one of us is hurting, the rest all share the pain
When another is rejoicing, there is singing and shouting
Celebration reigns!
There is in us a unity which cannot be destroyed
In Christ we have become a family

   Chorus

You are my brother, though I do not know your name

You are my sister, though you speak a different language
And we don't even look the same
There is in us a unity which cannot be destroyed
In Christ we have become a family

   Chorus

You are my mother, come and comfort me again
You are my father, won't you offer me forgiveness
And help me to find grace again
There is in us a unity which cannot be destroyed
In Christ we have become a family

   We are a family, for Christ has made us one
   His blood is flowing through our veins
   We are sisters and brothers
   Fathers and mothers
   Daughters and sons
   Hmmm ... Amen


More than Conquerors
Eastertide, 2021

Romans 8:31-39
Steve Gilbertson

Since Easter Day we have been touring some of the seminal scriptures which
explore the magnificent blessings which are ours because of Jesus' resurrection.
It's been a beautiful trip! Today we climb one of the highest peaks of these
scriptural treasures: Romans 8. Let's study it together.

Romans 8:31-39

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not
also with him graciously give us all things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against
God's elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one
who dided-more than that, who was raised-who is at the right hand of God, who
indeed is interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall
tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 
36 As it is written,

        "For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
            we are regarded 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 sure 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.
