Psalm 72

1  Give the king your justice, O God,
         and your righteousness to the royal son!
2   May he judge your people with righteousness,
         and your poor with justice!
3   Let the mountains bear prosperity for the people,
        and the hills, in righteousness!
4   May he defend the cause of the poor of the people,
        give deliverance to the children of the needy,

    and crush the oppressor!

5   May they fear you while the sun endures,
        and as long as the moon, throughout all generations!
6   May he be like rain that falls on the mown grass,
        like showers that water the earth!
7   In his days may the righteous flourish,
        and peace abound, till the moon be no more!

8   May he have dominion from sea to sea,
        and from the River to the ends of the earth!
9   May desert tribes bow down before him,
        and his enemies lick the dust!
10  May the kings of Tarshish and of the coastlands
        render him tribute;
      may the kings of Sheba and Seba
         bring gifts!
11  May all kings fall down before him,
        all nations serve him!

12  For he delivers the needy when he calls,
        the poor and him who has no helper.
13  He has pity on the weak and the needy,
        and saves the lives of the needy.
14  From oppression and violence he redeems their life,
        and precious is their blood in his sight.

15  Long may he live;
        may gold of Sheba be given to him!
    May prayer be made from him continually,
         and blessings invoked for him all the day!
16  May there be abundance of grain in the land;
        on the tops of the mountains may it wave;
         may its fruit be like Lebanon;
      and may people blossom in the cities
         like the grass of the field!
17  May his name endure forever,
        his fame continue as long as the sun!
      May people be blessed in him,
         all nations call him blessed!

18  Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
        who alone does wondrous things.
19  Blessed be his glorious name forever;
        may the whole earth be filled with his glory!
    Amen and Amen!

20  The prayers of David, the son of Jesse, are ended.

God so Loved the World

Come all you weary, come all you thirsty
Come to the well that never runs dry
Drink of the water, come and thirst no more

Come all you sinners, come find his mercy
Come to the table, he will satisfy
Taste of his goodness, find what you're looking for

   For God so loved the world that he gave us
   His one and only Son to save us
   Whoever believes in him will live forever

Bring all your failures, bring your addictions
Come lay them down at the foot of the cross
Jesus is waiting there with open arms (see his open arms)


   The power of hell forever defeated
   Now it is well, I'm walking in freedom
   For God so loved, God so loved the world

Praise God, praise God
From whom all blessings flow
Praise him, praise him
For the wonders of his love

For God so loved the world that he gave us
His one and only Son to save


   The power of hell forever defeated
   Now it is well, I'm walking in freedom
   For God so loved, God so loved the world

Bring all your failures, bring your addictions
Come lay them down at the foot of the cross
Jesus is waiting
God so loved the world

Lord I Need You

Lord I come, I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
Without you, I fall apart
You're the one that guides my heart

   Lord, I need you, oh I need you
   Every hour I need you
   My one defense, my righteousness
   Oh God, how I need you

Where sin runs deep, your grace is more
Where grace is found is where you are
*And where you are Lord I am free
Holiness is Christ in me (repeat *)


So teach my song to rise to you
When temptation comes my way
*And when I cannot stand I'll fall on you
Jesus youre my hope and stay (repeat *)


Mutual Accountability (in the Church)
The World's True King: A Study in Matthew

Matthew 18:15-20
Steve Gilbertson

In Matthew 18, Jesus teaches his disciples what life is to be like in his new kingdom
community (the church). We saw last week that the sign of true greatness in the
community is humility. This week and next we will see two more characteristics
of Jesus' kingdom community: mutual accountability and abundant forgiveness.

Matthew 18:15-20

10 "See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels
always see the face of my Father who is in heaven. 12 What do you think? If a man has a hundred
sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go
in search of the one that went astray? 13 And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more
than over the ninety-nine that never went astray. 14 So it is not the will of my Father who is in heaven
that one of these little ones should perish.

15 "If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to
you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you,
that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. 17 If he refuses to listen
to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile
and a tax collector. 18 Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and
whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19 Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth
about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are
gathered in my name, there am I among them."

21 Then Peter came up and said to him, "Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him?
As many as seven times?" 22 Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.

23 "Therefore the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his
servants. 24 When he began to settle, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents. 25 And
since he could not pay, his master ordered him to be sold, with his wife and children and all that he had, and
payment to be made. 26 So the servant fell on his knees, imploring him, 'Have patience with me, and I will
pay you everything.' 27 And out of pity for him, the master of that servant released him and forgave him
the debt. 28 But when that same servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a
hundred denarii, and seizing him, he began to choke him, saying, 'Pay what you owe.' 29 So his fellow
servant fell down and pleaded with him, 'Have patience with me, and I will pay you.' 30 He refused and went
and put him in prison until he should pay the debt. 31 When his fellow servants saw what had taken place, they
were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their master all that had taken place. 32 Then his master
summoned him and said to him, 'You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me.
33 And should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?' 34 And in anger his master
delivered him to the jailers, until he should pay all his debt. 35 So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of
you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart."
