Psalm 86

1   Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me,
        for I am poor and needy.
2   Preserve my life, for I am godly;
        save your servant, who trusts in you-you are my God.
3   Be gracious to me, O Lord,
       for to you do I cry all the day.
4   Gladden the soul of your servant,
       for you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

5   For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving,
       abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.
6   Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer;
       listen to my plea for grace.
7   In the day of my troublel I call upon you,
       for you answer me.

8   There is none like you among the gods, O Lord,
       nor are there any works like yours.
9   All the nations you have made shall come
       and worship before you, O Lord,
        and to glorify your name.

10  For you are great and do wondrous things;
       you alone are God.
11  Teach me your way, O Lord,
       that I may walk in your truth;
        unite my heart to fear your name.
12  I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart,
       and I will glorify your name forever.
13  For great is your steadfast love toward me;

       you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

14  O God, insolent men have risen up against me;
        a band of ruthless men seeks my life,

       and they do not set you before them.
15  But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious,
        slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.
16  Turn to me and be gracious to me;
        give your strength to your servant,
        and save the son of your maidservant.
17  Show me a sign of your favor,
        that those who hate me may see and be put to shame

       because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.


I Can't Even Walk

I thought number one would surely be me
I thought I could be what I wanted to be
I thought I could build on life's sinking sand
But now I can't even walk without you holding my hand

   Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand
   The mountains too high and the valleys too wide
   Down on my knees that's where I learned to stand
   Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand

I thought I could do a lot on my own
I thought I could make it all alone
I thought of myself as a mighty big man
But Lord I can't even walk without you holding my hand

   Chorus

I think I'll make Jesus my all and all
And if I'm in trouble on his name I'll call
If I didn't trust him, I'd be less of a man
'Cause Lord I can't even walk without you holding my hand

   Chorus

Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand


I Will Follow

When the sea is calm and all is right
When I feel your favor flood my life
Even in the good, I'll follow you
Even in the good, I'll follow you
When the boat is tossed upon the waves
When I wonder if you'll keep me safe
Even in the storms, I'll follow you
Even in the storms, I'll follow you

   I believe everything that you say you are
   I believe that I have seen your unchanging heart
   In the good things and in the hardest part
   I believe and I will follow you
   I believe and I will follow you

When I see the wicked prospering
When I feel I have no voice to sing
Even in the want, I'll follow you
Even in the want, I'll follow you

   Chorus

When I find myself so far from home
And you lead me somewhere I don't wanna go
Even in my death, I'll follow you
Even in my death, I'll follow you
When I come to end this race I've run
And I receive the prize that Christ has won
I will be with you in paradise
I will be with you in paradise

   Chorus (2x)


Here is Love

Here is love vast as the ocean 
Loving kindness as the flood
When the Prince of Life, our ransom
Shed for us his precious blood
Who his love will not remember
Who can cease to sing his praise
He will never be forgotten
Throughout heaven's eternal days

On the mount of crucifixion
Fountains opened deep and wide
Through the floodgates of God's mercy
Flowed a vast and gracious tide
Grace and love, like mighty rivers
Poured incessant from above
Heaven's peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty wourld in love

Grace and love, like mighty rivers
Poured incessant from above
Heaven's peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love
Heaven's peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love


The Challenge of Jesus (1)
The World's True King: A Study in Matthew

Matthew 22:15-22
Steve Gilbertson

Advent, which begins today, is a season of repentance in preparation for the arrival of
the Messiah. Our current study of Matthew is an excellent text to guide us in this respect.
For at Jesus' first advent, many of those who were expecting him ended up rejecting him.
How could this be? And what can we learn from their mistakes?

Matthew 22:15-22

15 Then the Pharisees went and plotted how to entangle him in his words. 16 And they sent their
disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that you are true and teach
the way of God truthfully, and you do not care about anyone's opinion, for you are not swayed by
appearances. 17 Tell us, then, what you think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?" 18 But
Jesus, aware of their malice, said, "Why put me to the test, you hypocrites? 19 Show me the coin
for the tax." And they brought him a denarius. 20 And Jesus said to them, "Whose likeness and
inscription is this?" 21 They said, "Caesar's." Then he said to them, "Therefore render to Caesar the
things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." 22 When they heard it, they marveled.
And they left him and went away.
