Psalm 66

1    Shout for joy to God, all the earth;
2        sing the glory of his name;
         give to him glorious praise!
3    Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds!
        So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you.
4    All the earth worships you
        and sings praises to you;

         they sing praises to your name."     Selah

5    Come and see what God has done:
        he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man.
6    He turned the sea into dry land;
         they passed through the river on foot.
     There did we rejoice in him,
7       who rules by his might forever,
     whose eyes keep watch on the nations-
         let not the rebellious exalt themselves.     Selah

8    Bless our God, O peoples;
         let the sound of his praise be heard,
9    who has kept our soul among the living
         and has not let our feet slip.
10   For you, O God, have tested us;
         you have tried us as silver is tried.
11   You brought us into the net;
         you laid a crushing burden on our backs;
12   you let men ride over our heads;
         we went through fire and through water;
      yet you have brought us out to a place of abundance.

13   I will come into your house with burnt offerings;
         I will perform my vows to you,
14   that which my lips uttered
         and my mouth promised when I was in trouble.
15   I will offer to you burnt offerings of fattened animals,
         with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams;
      I will make an offering of bulls and goats.    Selah

16   Come and hear all you who fear God,
         and I will tell what he has done for my soul.
17   I cried to him with my mouth,
         and high praise was on my tongue.
18   If I had cherished iniquity in my heart,
         the Lord would not have listened.
19   But truly God has listened;
         he has attended to the voice of my prayer.

20   Blessed be God,
         because he has not rejected my prayer
         or removed his steadfast love from me!

Lift Your Voice, Bow Your Head

When the world has let you down
Seems a friend just can't be found
When you're lost and far from home
Know you're never all alone

   Lift your voice, bow your head
   Let not one word go unsaid
   Give it to the Lord instead
   Lift your voice, bow your head

Simple words are all you need
For his love is guaranteed
Though your voice be still and small
He will hear you when you call


If you take the time to pray
Through his grace you'll find your way
He will dry each tear you send
Lift your voice, bow your head


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

Raise a Hallelujah

I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah, heaven comes to fight for me

   I'm gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
   Louder and louder, you're gonna hear my praises roar
   Up from the ashes, hope will arise
   Death is defeated, the King is alive!

I raise a hallelujah, with everything inside of me
I raise a hallelujah, I will watch the darkness flee
I raise a hallelujah, in the middle of the mystery
I raise a hallelujah, fear you lost your hold on me!


Sing a little louder (In the presence of my enemies)
Sing a little louder (Louder than the unbelief)
Sing a little louder (My weapon is a melody)
Sing a little louder (Heaven comes to fight for me)
Sing a little louder!


"No Signs for You!"
The World's True King: A Study in Matthew

Matthew 16:1-12
Steve Gilbertson

Jesus is not a happy camper! To obdurate Pharisees, Jesus says, "No signs for you!" 
To obtuse disciples, he says, "How is it that you fail to understand?" Why is he so
upset, and what lessons do these stories teach us about how to approach Jesus? We'll
talk about that today. 

Matthew 16:1-12

1 And the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and to test him they asked him to show them a
sign from heaven. 2 He answered them, "When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather,
for the sky is red.' 3 And in the morning, 'It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and
threatening.' You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret
the signs of the times. 4 An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will
be given to it except the sign of Jonah." So he left them and departed.

5 When the disciples reached the other side, they had forgotten to bring any bread. 6 Jesus said
to them, "Watch and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees." 7 And they began
discussing it among themselves, saying, "We brought no bread." 8 But Jesus, aware of this,
said, "O you of little faith, why are you discussing among yourselves the fact that you have no
bread? 9 Do you not yet perceive? Do you not remember the five loaves for the five thousand,
and how many baskets you gathered? 10 Or the seven loaves for the four thousand, and how
many baskets you gathered? 11 How is it that you fail to understand that I did not speak about
bread? Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees." 12 Then they understood that he
did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do
people say that the Son of Man is?" 14 And they said, "Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah,
and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." 15 He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?"
16 Simon Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." 17 And Jesus answered him,
"Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father
who is in heaven. 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates
of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever
you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
20 Then he strictly charged the disciples to tell no one that he was the Christ.
