Psalm 118

1   Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
        for his steadfast love endures forever!

2   Let Israel say,
        "His steadfast love endures forever."
3   Let the house of Aaron say,
       "His steadfast love endures forever."
4   Let those who fear the Lord say,
       "His steadfast love endures forever."

5   Out of my distress I called on the Lord;
       the Lord answered me and set me free.
6   The Lord is on my side; I will not fear.
        What can man do to me?
7   The Lord is on my side as my helper;
        I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.

8   It is better to take refuge in the Lord
        than to trust in man.
9   It is better to take refuge in the Lord

        than to trust in princes.

10  All nations surrounded me;
        in the name of the Lord I cut them off!
11  They surrounded me, surrounded me on every side;
        in the name of the Lord I cut them off!
12  They surrounded me like bees;
        they went out like a fire among thorns;
        in the name of the Lord I cut them off!
13  I was pushed hard, so that I was falling,
        but the Lord helped me.

14  The Lord is my strength and my song;
        he has become my salvation.
15  Glad songs of salvation
        are in the tents of the righteous:
     "The right hand of the Lord does valiantly,
16     the right hand of the Lord exalts,

        the right hand of the Lord does valiantly!"

17  I shall not die, but I shall live,

        and recount the deeds of the Lord.
18  The Lord has disciplined me severely,
        but he has not given me over to death.

19  Open to me the gates of righteousness,
        that I may enter through them
        and give thanks to the Lord.
20  This is the gate of the Lord;
        the righteous shall enter through it.
21  I thank you that you have answered me
        and become my slavation.
22  The stone that the builders rejected 
        has become the cornerstone.
23  This is the Lord's doing;
        it is marvelous in our eyes.

24  This is the day that the Lord has made;
        let us rejoice and be glad in it.

25  Save us, we pray, O Lord!
        O Lord, we pray, give us success!

26  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
        We bless you from the house of the Lord.
27  The Lord is God,
        and he has made his light to shine upon us.

     Bind the festal sacrifice with cords,
        up to the horns of the altar!

28  You are my God, and I will give thanks to you;
        you are my God; I will extol you.
29  Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
        for his steadfast love endures forever!


For He is Good (Psalm 118)

   For he is good, for he is good
   His steadfast love endures forever

   For he is good, for he is good
   His steadfast love endures forever


   O give thanks to the Lord (4x)
   (repeat all above)

(Leader): Let all the women say
(Ladies): "His steadfast love endures forever!"

(Leader): Let all the men-folk say
(Men): "His steadfast love endures forever!"
(Leader): Let those who fear the Lord say
(All): "His steadfast love endures forever!"

   Chorus


God is So Good (You Are Worthy)

No height or depth can separate
Your steadfast love who can escape

Your faithfulness an endless sea
So full of grace and mercy

   We sing God is so good
   God is so good
   God is so good
   He's so good to me

Haunted by the past no more
My innocence as been restored
Forgiveness flows from your veins
Your kindness shown in all your ways

   Chorus

(Oh there's) never been anyone like you
Never been anyone like you
You are worthy you are worthy
(repeat)

Hope is rising like the sun
The old is gone the new has come
I fix my eyes on Christ alone
My Rock, my Shield, my Cornerstone

   Chorus

God is so good
He's so good to me


Come As You Are

Come out of sadness from wherever you've been
Come, brokenhearted let rescue begin

Come find your mercy, O sinner come kneel
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal

   Lay down your burdens
   Lay down your shame

   All who are broken
   Lift up your face
   O wanderer, come home
   You're not too far

   So lay down your hurt, lay down your heart
   Come as you are

There's hope for the hopeless
And all those who've strayed

Come sit at the table
Come taste the grace
There's rest for the weary

Rest that endures
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't cure (to chorus) ...So...

   Chorus

Come as you are
Come as you are
Fall in his arms
Come as you are

There's joy for the morning
O sinner, be still
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal

   Chorus


Faithful Servants and Foolish Women
Matthew 24:45-25:13
The World's True King: A Study in Matthew

Steve Gilbertson

Jesus closes his famous "Olivet Discourse" with a series of parables and warnings,
encouraging his followers in every age to live faithfully and refuse to live foolishly.
What does it look like to live faithfully or foolishly? We'll take a look at that this
morning.

Matthew 24:45-25:13 (ESV)

45 "Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household,
to give them their food at the proper time? 46 Blessed is that servant whom his master will
find so doing when he comes. 47 Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions.
48 But if that wicked servant says to himself, 'My master is delayed,' 49 and begins to beat
his fellow servants and eats and drinks with drunkards, 50 the master of that servant will
come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know 51 and will
cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and
gnashing of teeth.

25 "Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went to
meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3 For when the
foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, 4 but the wise took flasks of oil with
their lamps. 5 As the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and slept. 6 But at
midnight there was a cry, 'Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.' 7 Then all those
virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of
your oil, for our lamps are going out.' 9 But the wise answered, saying, 'Since there will not
be enough for us and for you, go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.' 10 And while
they were going to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to
the marriage feast, and the door was shut. 11 Afterward the other virgins came also, saying,
'Lord, lord, open to us.' 12 But he answered, 'Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.' 13 Watch
therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.
