Psalm 37

 

1 Fret not yourself because of evildoers;
    be not envious of wrongdoers!
2 For they will soon fade like the grass
    and wither like the green herb.
3 Trust in the Lord, and do good;
    dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
4 Delight yourself in the Lord,
    and he will give you the desires of your heart.


5 Commit your way to the Lord;
    trust in him, and he will act.
6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
    and your justice as the noonday.


7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;
    fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,

    over the man who carries out evil devices!
8 Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!
    Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.

9 For the evildoers shall be cut off,
    but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land.

10 In just a little while, the wicked will be no more;
    though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there.

11 But the meek shall inherit the land
    and delight themselves in abundant peace.


12 The wicked plots against the rightous
    and gnashes his teeth at him,

13 but the Lord laughs at the wicked,
    for he sees that his day is coming.

14 The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows
    to bring down the poor and needy,
    to slay those whose way is upright;
15 their sword shall enter their own heart,
    and their bows shall be broken.

16 Better is the little that the righteous has
    than the abundance of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,
    but the Lord upholds the righteous.

18 The Lord knows the days of the blameless,
    and their heritage will remain forever;
19 they are not put to shame in evil times;
    in the days of famine they have abundance.

20 But the wicked will perish;
    the enemies of the Lord are like the glory of the pastures;
    they vanish- like smoke they vanish away.

21 The wicked borrows but does not pay back,
    but the righteous is generous and gives;
22 for those blessed by the Lord shall inherit the land,
    but those cursed by him shall be cut off.

23 The steps of a man are established by the Lord,
    when he delights in his way;
24 though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,
    for the Lord upholds his hand.

25 I have been young, and now am old,
    yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken
    or his children begging for bread.

26 He is ever lending generously,
    and his children become a blessing.

27 Turn away from evil and do good;
    so shall you dwell forever.
28 For the Lord loves justice;
    he will not forsake his saints.
   They are preserved forever,
    but the children of the wicked shall be cut off.
29 The righteous shall inherit the land
    and dwell upon it forever.

30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,
    and his tongue speaks justice.
31 The law of his God is in his heart;
    his steps do not slip.

32 The wicked watches for the righteous
    and seeks to put him to death.
33 The Lord will not abandon him to his power
    or let him be condemned when he is brought to trial.

34 Wait for the Lord and keep his way,
    and he will exalt you to inherit the land;
    you will look on when the wicked are cut off.

35 I have seen a wicked, ruthless man,
    spreading himself like a green laurel tree.
36 But he passed away, and behold, he was no more;
    though I sought him, he could not be found.

37 Mark the blameless and behold the upright,
    for there is a future for the man of peace.
38 But transgressors shall be altogether destroyed;
    the future of the wicked shall be cut off.

39 The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
    he is their stronghold in the time of trouble.
40 The Lord helps them and delivers them;
    he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
    because they take refuge in him.


Welcome Table

 

   I'm gonna sit at the welcome table
   I'm gonna sit at the welcome table one of these days
   I'm gonna sit at the welcome table
   Sit at the welcome table one of these days, one of these days

I'm gonna feast on milk and honey
I'm gonna feast on milk and honey one of these days
I'm gonna feast on milk and honey
Gonna feast on milk and honey one of these days

   Chorus

All God's children gonna sit together

   Chorus


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


Who You Say I Am

Who am I that the highest King
Would welcome me
I was lost but he brought me in
Oh his love for me
Oh his love for me

 Who the Son sets free
 Oh is free indeed
 I'm a child of God
   Yes I am

Free at last
He has ransomed me
His grace runs deep
While I was a slave to sin
Jesus died for me
Yes he died for me

 Who the Son sets free
 Oh is free indeed
 I'm a child of God
 Yes I am
 In my Father's house
 There's a place for me
 I'm a child of God
   Yes I am

I am chosen
Not forsaken
I am who you say I am
You are for me
Not against me
I am who you say I am


Lord of the Sabbath

Steve Gilbertson
Matthew 12:1-14

We are in the middle of that section of Matthew which describes the various responses
people had to Jesus, "the world's true king." Some questioned him, some embraced him,
but
many rejected him. Chief among these were the religious leaders of the day, as we
shall see
in today's study.

Matthew 12:1-14

1 At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry,
and they began to pluck heads of grain and to eat. 2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said
to him, "Look, your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath." 3 He said to
them, "Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, and those who were with him:
4 how he entered the house of God and ate the bread of the Presence, which it was not lawful
for him to eat nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests? 5 Or have you not read
in the Law how on the Sabbath the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath and are guiltless?
6 I tell you, something greater than the temple is here. 7 And if you had known what this means,
'I desire mercy, and not sacrifice,' you would not have condemned the guiltless. 8 For the Son of
Man is lord of the Sabbath."

9 He went on from there and entered their synagogue. 10 And a man was there with a withered
hand. And they asked him, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?'-so that they might accuse him.
11 He said to them, "Which one of you who has a sheep, if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will
not take hold of it and lift it out? 12 Of how much more value is a man than a sheep! So it is
lawful to do good on the Sabbath." 13 Then he said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." And the
man stretched it out, and it was restored, healthy like the other. 14 But the Pharisees went out
and conspired against him, how to destroy him.

15 Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. And many followed him, and he healed them all
16 and ordered them not to make him known. 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken by the
prophet Isaiah:

18    "Behold, my servant whom I have chosen,
          my beloved with whom my soul is well pleased.
        I will put my Spirit upon him,
          and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.
19    He will not quarrel or cry aloud,
          nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets;
20    a bruised reed he will not break,
          and a smoldering wick he will not quench,
       until he brings justice to victory;
21       and in his name the Gentiles will hope."
