We're Back!

Please pray with us that the virus will be contained soon, that God would grant healing to those near and far away who are affected by it, and that God would give wisdom to medical and government personnel who are on the front lines of dealing with the crisis.

Psalm 81

1   Sing aloud to God our strength;
        shout for joy to the God of Jacob!
2   Raise a song; sound the tambourine,
        the sweet lyre with the harp.
3   Blow the trumpet at the new moon,
       at the full moon, on our feast day.
4   For it is a statute for Israel,
       a rule of the God of Jacob.

5   He made it a decree in Joseph
       when he went out over the land of Egypt.
    I hear a language I had not known:
6   "I relieved your shoulder of the burden;
       your hands were freed from the basket.
7   In distress you called, and I delivered you;
       I answered you in the secret place of thunder;
       I tested you at the waters of Meribah.       Selah
8   Hear, O my people, while I admonish you!
       O Israel, if you would but listen to me!
9   There shall be no strange god among you;
       you shall not bow down to a foreign god.
10  I am the Lord your God,
       who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.
        Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.

11  "But my people did not listen to my voice;
         Israel would not submit to me.
12  So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts,
         to follow their own counsels.
13  Oh, that my people would listen to me,
         that Israel would walk in my ways!
14  I would soon subdue their enemies
         and turn my hand against their foes.
15  Those who hate the Lord would cringe toward him,
         and their fate would last forever.
16  But he would feed you with the finest of the wheat,
         and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you."

I've Been Set Free

   I've been set free
   I've been set free
   Since Jesus saved my soul I've been set free
   With blinded eyes I could not see
   But the Lord delivered me

   Now I praise his holy name I've been set free

Once when Jesus came to town
Everybody gathered 'round
All the sick and lame were brought to him that day
When the blind man begged for sight
He shouted out with great delight
Jesus touched his eyes and healed him on that day


Once my life was steeped in sin
But I wouldn't let him in

I thought that I could make it on my own
Farther down sin's road I went
Saw no reason to repent
Then Jesus intervened and rescued me


Sinner friend if you're in doubt and you see there's no way out
You find yourself alone in sinkin' sand
Why not give my God a try
Your thirsty soul he'll satisfy
You'll find your place in heaven when you die


I Can't Even Walk

I thought number one would surely be me 
I thought I could be what I wanted to be
I thought I could build on life's sinking sand
But now I can't even walk without you holding my hand

   Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand
   The mountains too high and the valleys too wide
   Down on my knees that's where I learned to stand
   Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand

I thought I could do a lot on my own
I thought I could make it all alone
I thought of myself as a mighty big man
But Lord I can't even walk without you holding my hand


I think I'll make Jesus my all and all
And if I'm in trouble on his name I'll call
If I didn't trust him, I'd be less of a man
'Cause Lord I can't even walk without you holding my hand


Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand

Open Our Eyes, Lord
The World's True King: A Study in Matthew

Matthew 20:29-34
Steve Gilbertson

As Matthew transitions into Jesus' final week, he tells a healing story remarkably
similar to one he has already told in chapter 9: the healing of two blind men who
recognize him as "the Son of David." What is significant about these two events,
why does Matthew tell them both, and what are we meant to learn from these
magnificent miracles? We'll talk about that this morning.

Matthew 20:29-34

17 And as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside, and on
the way he said to them, 18 "See, we are going up to Jerusalem. And the Son of Man will
be delivered over to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death.
19 and deliver him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified, and he will
be raised on the third day."

20 Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee came up to him with her son, and kneeling before
him she asked him for something. 21 And he said to her, "What do you want? She said to him,
"Say that these two sons of mine are to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your
kingdom." 22 Jesus answered, "You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the
cup that I am to drink?" They said to him, "We are able." 23 He said to them, "You will drink my
cup, but to sit at my right hand and at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom
it has been prepared by my Father." 24 And when the ten heard it, they were indignant at the two
brothers. 25 But Jesus called them to him and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord
it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 26 It shall not be so among you.
But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever would be first among
you must be your slave, 28 even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give
his life as a ransom for many."

29 And as they went out of Jericho, a great crowd followed him. 30 And behold, there were two blind
men sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was passing by, they cried out, "Lord,
have mercy on us, Son of David!" 31 The crowd rebuked them, telling them to be silent, but they
cried out all the more, "Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!" 32 And stopping, Jesus called them
and said, "What do you want me to do for you?" 33 They said to him, "Lord, let our eyes be opened."
34 And Jesus in pity touched their eyes, and immediately they recovered their sight and followed him.

Matthew 9:36
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like
sheep without a shepherd.

Matthew 14:14
When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them, and healed their sick.

Matthew 15:32
Then Jesus called his disciples to him and said, "I have compassion on the crowd because they have been
with me now three days and have nothing to eat."

Matthew 20:34 (NIV)
Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes.
