ecclesia song

We are called to faith, gathered in love
Sent with hope to change the world
We are called to faith, gathered in love
ecclesia, ecclesia, Church at the Chip

   Called to Faith, Gathered in Love,
   Sent with Hope – ecclesia!

Psalm 98

1   Oh sing to the Lord a new song,
        for he has done marvelous things!
     His right hand and his holy arm
        have worked salvation for him.
2   The Lord has made known his salvation;
        he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations.
3   He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness
       to the house of Israel.
     All the ends of the earth have seen
        the salvation of our God.

4   Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth;
       break forth into joyous song and sing praises!

5   Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,
       with the lyre and the sound of melody!
6   With trumpets and the sound of the horn
        make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord!

7   Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
        the world and those who dwell in it!
8   Let the rivers clap their hands;
        let the hills sing for joy together

9   before the Lord, for he comes
        to judge the earth.
     He will judge the world with righteousness,
        and the peoples with equity.

Come People of the Risen King

Come, people of the risen King
Who delight to bring him praise
Come all and tune your hearts to sing
To the morning star of grace
From the shifting shadows of the earth
We will lift our eyes to him
Where steady arms of mercy reach
To gather children in

   Rejoice, rejoice
   Let every tongue rejoice
   One heart, one voice
   Church at the Chip, rejoice!

Come those whose joy is morning sun
And those weeping through the night
Come those who tell of battles won
And those struggling in the fight
For his perfect love will never change
And his mercies never cease
But follow us through all our days
With the certain hope of peace


Come, young and old from every land
Men and women of the faith
Come those with full or empty hands
Find the riches of his grace
Over all the world his people sing
Shore to shore we hear them call
The truth that cries through every age
Our God is all in all


My Beloved

My Beloved, bring me awake
Take me up to your resurrection place
My Beloved, bring me awake
'Cause I want to feel your light on my face

There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul
There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul
(Repeat all above)

   I see the light, I see the light
   I see the light, I see the light
   Oh thank you God, I see the light

My Beloved, bring me away
Over Jordan and out of this place
My Beloved, for you I wait
With you here 'til forever face to face

There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul
There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul


No more sorrow, no more pain
No more darkness weighing down on me
No longer blind, now I can see
Forever light, forever free...

Forever light, forever light
Forever light, forever light
I see the light, I see the light
I see the light, I see the light
Oh, thank you, God, I see the light

I see the light, I see the light
I see the light, I see the light
Oh thank you God, oh thank you God 
I see the light

Oh How I Need You

Lord, I find you in the seeking
Lord, I find you in the doubt
And to know you is to love you
And to know so little else

   I need you
   Oh, how I need you
   Oh, how I need you
   Oh, how I need you
   (repeat all)

Lord, I find you in the morning
Lord, I seek you every day
Let my life be for your glory
Woven in your threads of grace

   Oh, how I need you
   Oh, how I need you
   Oh, how I need you
   Oh, how I need you

   Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh

Light, glorious light, I will go where you shine
Break the dawn, crack the skies
Make the way bright before me
In your light I will find
All I need, all I need is you

   Oh, how I need you
   Oh, how I need you
   Oh, how I need you
   Oh, how I need you

Unity, Liberty, Charity (2)
Romans 14:1-15:7
ecclesia examen (5)
Steve Gilbertson

Romans 14:1-15:7

"In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity." These words
summarize the way we approach our beliefs. Last week we discussed our essential
beliefs: "The inspiration and authority of scrioture; the incarnation and resurrection
of Jesus; salvation by grace through faith." But what about the many other questions
about which equally devoated Christians disagree? We'll talk about that today.

14 As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. 2 One
person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. 3 Let
not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass
judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. 4 Who are you to pass judgment
on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be
upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

5 One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike.
Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. 6 The one who observes the day, observes
it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God,
while the one who abstains, abstans in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God. 7 For none of
us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. 8 For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we
die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's. 9 For to
this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.

10 Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we
will all stand before the judgment seat of God; 11 for it is written,

"As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God."

12 So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.

13 Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put
a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother. 14 I know and am persuaded in the Lord
Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself, but it is unclean for anyone who thinks it unclean. 15 For
if your brother is grieved by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. By what you eat, do
not destroy the one for whom Christ died. 16 So do not let what you regard as good be spoken of
as evil. 17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and
peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18 Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved
by men. 19 So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.

20 Do not, for the sake of food, destroy the work of God. Everything is indeed clean, but it is wrong
for anyone to make another stumble by what he eats. 21 It is good not to eat meat or drink wine or
do anything that causes your brother to stumble. 22 The faith that you have, keep between yourself
and God. Blessed is the one who has no reason to pass judgment on himself for what he approves.
23 But whoever has doubts is condemned if he eats, because the eating is not from faith. For whatever
does not proceed from faith is sin.

15 We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please
2 Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. 3 For Christ did not please
himself, but
as it is written, "The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me." 4 For whatever
was written in
former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the
encouragement of
the Scriptures we might have hope. 5 May the God of endurance and encouragement
grant you to live in
such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, 6 that together you may
with one voice glorify
the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 7 Therefore welcome one another as
Christ has welcomed you,
for the glory of God.
