Psalm 34

 

1 I will bless the Lord at all times;
    his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
    let the humble hear and be glad.
3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
    and let us exalt his name together!

4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me
    and delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant,
    and their faces shall never be ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
    and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps
     around those who fear him, and delivers them.

8 Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
    Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
9 Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints,
    for those who fear him have no lack!
10 The young lions suffer want and hunger;
    but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.


11 Come, O children, listen to me;
     I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 What man is there who desires life
   and loves many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep your tongue from evil
     and your lips from speaking deceit.
14 Turn away from evil and do good;
     seek peace and pursue it.


15 The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
     and his ears toward their cry.
16 The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
     to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17 When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears
   and delivers them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
     and saves the crushed in spirit.


19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
   but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
20 He keeps all his bones;
     not one of them is broken.
21 Affliction will slay the wicked,
     and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
22 The Lord redeems the life of his servants;
     none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.


Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Come thou fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing thy grace
Streams of mercy never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount I'm fixed upon it
Mount of thy redeeming love

Here I raise my Ebenezer
Hither by thy help I come
And I hope by thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home
Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God
He to rescue me from danger
Interposed his precious blood

O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I'm constrained to be
Let thy goodness like a fetter
Bind my wandering heart to thee
Prone to wander Lord I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love
Here's my heart, O take and seal it
Seal it for thy courts above


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)

 


This is My Father's World

This is my Father's world, and to my listening ears
All nature sings, and round me rings
The music of the spheres
This is my Father's world: I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas
His hand the wonders wrought

This is my Father's world, the birds their carols raise
The morning light, the lily white
Declare their Maker's praise
This is my Father's world: he shines in all that's fair
In the rustling grass I hear him pass
He speaks to me everywhere

This is my Father's world. O let me ne'er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong
God is the ruler yet
This is my Father's world: the battle is not done
Jesus who died shall be satisfied
And earth and Heav'n be one


Are You the One?

Steve Gilbertson
Matthew 11:1-19

Matthew's gospel presents Jesus as "the World's True King." As we resume our study,
we observe that, having spent the first portion of his book showing Jesus' kingly
lineage (chs. 1-4), his kingdom teaching (5-7) and his kingdom deeds (8-10), Matthew
now begins to catalog the various responses people had to Jesus' kingdom message
(11-12). Some welcomed him, some rejected him, and others, like John the Baptist,
were not sure what to think: "Are you the one..., or shall we look for another?"

1 When Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach
and preach in their cities.

2 Now when John heard in prison about the deeds of the Christ, he sent word by his disciples
3 and said to him, "Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?" 4 And Jesus
answered them, "Go and tell John what you hear and see: 5 the blind receive their sight and
the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the
poor have good news preached to them. 6 And blessed is the one who is not offended by me."

7 As they went away, Jesus began to speak to the crowds concerning John: "What did you go
out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? 8 What then did you go out to see?
A man dressed in soft clothing? Behold, those who wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.
9 What then did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet.
10 This is he of whom it is written,

"'Behold, I send my messenger before your face,
who will prepare your way before you.'

11 Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has arisen no one greater than John
the Baptist. Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 12 From
the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the
violent take it by force. 13 For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John, 14 and if
you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah who is to come. 15 He who has ears to hear, let him
hear.

16 "But to what shall I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces
and calling to their playmates,

17 "'We played the flute for you, and you did not dance;
we sang a dirge, and you did not mourn.'

18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon.' 19 The Son of
Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Look at him! A glutton and a drunkard, a friend
of tax collectors and sinners!' Yet wisdom is justified by her deeds."

20 Then he began to denounce the cities where most of his mighty works had been done,
because they did not repent. 21 "Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the
mighty works done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long
ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I tell you, it will be more bearable on the day of judgment
for Tyre and Sidon than for you. 23 And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? You
will be brought down to Hades. For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Sodom,
it would have remained until this day. 24 But I tell you that it will be more tolerable on the day
judgment for the land of Sodom than for you."

25 At that time Jesus declared, "I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have
hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children;
26 yes, Father for such was your gracious will. 27 All things have been handed over to me by
my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father and no one knows the Father except
the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. 28 Come to me, all who labor and
are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for
I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and
my burden is light."
