Psalm 32

 

1 Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,
    whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity,
    and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

3 For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away
    through my groaning all day long.
4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;
    my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah

5 I acknowledged my sin to you,
    and I did not cover my iniquity;
   I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,"
     and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.     Selah

6 Therefore let everyone who is godly
    offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found;
   surely in the rush of great waters,
     they shall not reach him.
7 You are a hiding place for me;
     you preserve me from trouble;
     you surround me with shouts of deliverance.     Selah

8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
    I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
9 Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding,
    which must be curbed with bit and bridle,
    or it will not stay near you.

10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked,
    but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in
     the Lord.
11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,
    and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!


Let My Life Be a Light

Let me live, blessed Lord, in the light of thy word
Let my life be a light on a hill
Leading souls now astray to the straight narrow way
Help me do some good deed while I live

   Let my life be a light shining out through the night
   May I help struggling ones to the fold
   Spreading cheer everywhere to the sad and the lone
   Let my life be a light to some soul

Give me wisdom and power, every day, every hour
Let me drink from the fountain above
And guide my footsteps aright through this dark and stormy night
Give me peace, give me joy, give me love

   Chorus

Give me souls for my hire, let my light be on fire
Shining out to the world as a guide
Help me rescue someone sinking now with no hope
That in Heaven we shall ever abide

   Chorus


All the People Said Amen

You are not alone, if you are lonely
When you feel afraid, you're not the only
We are all the same, in need of mercy
To be forgiven and be free
It's all you got to lean on but thank God it's all you need

   And all the people said Amen
   And all the people said Amen
   Give thanks to the Lord for his love never ends
   And all the people said Amen

If you think you're poor, well it don't matter
Weak or strong, we know love is all we're after
We're all broken but we're all in this together
God knows we stumble and fall
And he so loved the world
He sent his son to save us all

   Chorus

Blessed are the poor in spirit who are torn apart
Blessed are the persecuted and the pure in heart
Blessed are the people hungry for another start
For theirs is the Kingdom, the Kingdom of God

   Chorus (2x)


Because He Lives (Amen)

I believe in the Son
I believe in the risen One
I believe I overcome
By the power of his blood

   Amen, Amen
   I'm alive, I'm alive because he lives
   Amen, Amen
   Let my song join the one that never ends
   Because he lives

I was dead in the grave
I was covered in sin and shame
I heard mercy call my name
He rolled the stone away

   Chorus

(Because he lives) I can face tomorrow
Because he lives every fear is gone
I know he holds my life, my future in his hand

   Chorus (2x)
   Because he lives
   Because he lives


Our Mission: Living Witnesses

Steve Gilbertson
Luke 24:44-49

"You are witnesses of these things," Jesus said to his disciples just before
he took his place at the right hand of the Father. From the very beginning,
then, we were given the mission to be "living witnesses of God's new
creation in Christ Jesus" -- as our church vision statement reminds us.
What does it mean to be a living witness, and what are some practical ways
we can do this in the context of our own church family?

44 Then he said to them, "These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still
with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets
and the Psalms must be fulfilled." 45 Then he opened their minds to understand
the Scriptures, 46 and said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Christ should
suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, 47 and that repentance for the
forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning
from Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things. 49 And behold, I am
sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are
clothed with power from on high."

Acts 1:8
8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you
will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the
end of the earth."

John 17:18
18 As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.

Matthew 28:18-20
18 And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth
has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy
Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And
behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
