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

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


Psalm 115

1   Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory,
        for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!

2   Why should the nations say,
        "Where is their God?"
3   Our God is in the heavens;
       he does all that he pleases.

4   Their idols are silver and gold,
       the work of human hands.

5   They have mouths, but do not speak;
       eyes, but do not see.
6   They have ears, but do not hear;
        noses, but do not smell.
7   They have hands, but do not feel;
        feet, but do not walk;
        and they do not make a sound in their throat.
8   Those who make them become like them;
        so do all who trust in them.

9   O Israel, trust in the Lord!
        He is their help and their shield.
10  O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord!
        He is their help and their shield.
11  You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord!
        He is their help and their shield.

12  The Lord has remembered us; he will bless us;
        he will bless the house of Israel;
        he will bless the house of Aaron;
13  he will bless those who fear the Lord,
        both the small and the great.

14  May the Lord give you increase,
        you and your children!
15  May you be blessed by the Lord,
        who made heaven and earth!

16  The heavens are the Lord's heavens,

        but the earth he has given to the children of man.
17  The dead do not praise the Lord,
        nor do any who go down into silence.
18  But we will bless the Lord
        from this time forth and forevermore.
     Praise the Lord!


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)

   Chorus

   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
(repeat)

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

   Chorus

   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


Only a Holy God

Who else commands all the hosts of heaven
Who else could make every king bow down

Who else can whisper and darkness trembles
Only a Holy God

What other beauty demands such praises
What other splendor outshines the sun

What other majesty rules with justice
Only a Holy God

   Come and behold him
   The One and the Only
   Cry out sing holy
   Forever a Holy God
   Come and worship the Holy God

What other glory consumes like fire
What other power can raise the dead
What other name remains undefeated
Only a Holy God

   Chorus

Who else could rescue me from my failing
Who else would offer his only Son
Who else invited me to call him Father
Only a Holy God
Only my Holy God

   Chorus


I Will Follow

When the sea is calm and all is right
When I feel your favor flood my life

Even in the good, I'll follow you
Even in the good, I'll follow you

When the boat is tossed upon the waves
When I wonder if you'll keep me safe
Even in the storms, I'll follow you
Even in the storms, I'll follow you

   I believe everything that you say you are
   I believe that I have seen your unchanging heart

   In the good things and in the hardest part
   I believe and I will follow you
   I believe and I will follow you


When I see the wicked prospering
When I feel I have no voice to sing

Even in the want, I'll follow you
Even in the want, I'll follow you

   Chorus

When I find myself so far from home
And you lead me somewhere I don't wanna go
Even in my death, I'll follow you
Even in my death, I'll follow you
When I come to end this race I've run
And I receive the prize that Christ has won
I will be with you in paradise
I will be with you in paradise

   Chorus (2x)


Christian Citizens
1 Peter 2:9-17
Steve Gilbertson

What does it mean to be a citizen of God's Kingdom while also being a citizen of a
particular country - whether our own or any other? This has been an important
question for followers of Jesus from the first century onward. Let us see what the
Bible has to say about this issue.

1 Peter 2:9-17 (ESV)

2 So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. 2 Like newborn
infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation- 3 if indeed you
have tasted that the Lord is good.

4 As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious,
5 you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood,
to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For it stands in Scripture:

"Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone,
a cornerstone chosen and precious,
and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame."

7 So the honor is for you who believe, but for those who do not beleive,

"The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone."

8 and

"A stone of stumbling,
and a rock of offense."

They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do.

9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that
you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but
now you have received mercy.

11 Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage
war against your soul. 12 Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak
against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.

13 Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme,
14 or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. 15 For
this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people.
16 Live as people who are free, not suing your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of
God. 17 Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.

18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the
unjust. 19 For this is a gracious thing, when, mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly.
20 For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But if when you do good and
suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God. 21 For to this you have been called,
because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. 22 He
committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. 23 When he was reviled, he did not revile in
return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly.
24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By
his wounds you have been healed. 25 For you were straying like sheep, but have not returned to the Shepherd
and Overseer of your souls.
