Psalm 145

1   I will extol you, my God and King,
        and bless your name forever and ever.
2   Every day I will bless you
        and praise your name forever and ever.
3   Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
       and his greatness is unsearchable.

4   One generation shall commend your works to another,
       and shall declare your mighty acts.
5   On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
       and on your wonderous works, I will meditate.
6   They shall speak of that might of your awesome deeds,
       and I will declare your greatness.
7   They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
       and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.

8   The Lord is gracious and merciful,
       slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
9  The Lord is good to all,
       and his mercy is over all that he has made.

10 All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord,
       and all your saints shall bless you!
11 They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom
       and tell of your power,
12 to make known to the children of man your mighty deeds,
       and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
        and your dominion endures throughout all generations.

    [The Lord is faithful in all his words
        and kind in all his works.]
14 The Lord upholds all who are falling
        and raises up all who are bowed down.
15 The eyes of all look to you,
        and you give them their food in due season.

16 You open your hand;
        you satisfy the desire of every living thing.
17 The Lord is righteous in all his ways
        and kind in all his works.
18 The Lord is near to all who call on him,
        to all who call on him in truth.
19 He fulfills the desire of those who fear him;
        he also hears their cry and saves them.
20 The Lord preserves all who love him,
        but all the wicked he will destroy.

21 My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord,
        and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.

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


Give me souls for my hire, let my life 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


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 what 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 


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)

Yet Not I But Through Christ in Me

What gift of grace is Jesus my redeemer
There is no more for heaven now to give
He is my joy my righteousness and freedom
My steadfast love my deep and boundless peace

To this I hold my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to his 
Oh how strange and divine I can sing all is mine
Yet not I but through Christ in me

The night is dark but I am not forsaken
For by my side the Savior he will stay
I labor on in weakness and rejoicing 
For in my need his power is displayed

To this I hold my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley he will lead
Oh the night has been won and I shall overcome
Yet not I but through Christ in me

No fate I dread I know I am forgiven
The future sure the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon
And he was raised to overthrow the grave

To this I hold my sin has been defeated
Jesus now and ever is my plea
Oh the chains are released I can sing I am free
Yet not I but through Christ in me

With every breath I long to follow Jesus
For he has said that he will bring me home
And day by day I know he will renew me 
Until I stand with joy before the throne

To this I hold my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to him
When the race is complete still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I but through Christ in me ending
When the race is complete still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I but through Christ in me
Yet not I but through Christ in me

Preserving the Truth of the Gospel
The Gospel Changes Everything: A Study in Galatians #4
Galatians 2:1-10
Steve Gilbertson

In this autobiographical section of his letter to the Galatians, Paul defends his
apostolic authority to those who are questioning it. In the process, he mentions
his primary concern that "the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you."
We wonder: what is the truth of ht egospel? And why was it in danger of being
spoiled? We'll talk about that this morning.

Galatians 2:1-10 (ESV)

2 Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus
along with me. 2 I went up because of a revelation and set before them (though privately
before those who seemed influential) the gospel that I proclaim among the Gentiles, in
order to make sure I was not running or had not run in vain. 3 But even Titus, who was
with me, was not forced to be circumcised, though he was a Greek. 4 Yet because of false
brothers secretly brought in-who slipped in to spy out our freedom that we have in Christ
Jesus, so that they might bring us into slavery- 5 to them we did not yield in submission even
for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you. 6 And from those
who seemed to be influential (what they were makes no difference to me; God shows no
partiality)- those, I say, who seemed influential added nothing to me. 7 On the contrary, when
they saw that I had been entrusted with the gospel to the uncircumcised, just as Peter had
been entrusted with the gospel to the circumcised 8 (for he who worked through Peter for his
apostolic ministry to the circumcised worked also through me for mine to the Gentiles), 9 and
when James and Cephas and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given
to me, they gave the right had of fellowship to Barnabas and me, that we should go to the
Gentiles and they to the circumcised. 10 Only, they asked us to remember the poor, the very thing
I was eager to do.
