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 125

1   Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
        which cannot be moved, but abides forever.
2   As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
        so the Lord surrounds his people,
        from this time forth and forevermore.
3   For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest
       on the land allotted to the righteous,
     lest the righteous stretch out
        their hands to do wrong.
4   Do good, O Lord, to those who are good,
       and to those who are upright in their hearts!

5   But those who turn aside to their crooked ways
        the Lord will lead away with evildoers!
        Peace be upon Israel!


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


Abide with Me

I have a home, eternal home
But for now I walk this broken world
You walked it first, you know our pain
But you show hope can rise again up from the grave

   Abide with me, abide with me
   Don't let me fall, and don't let go
   Walk with me, and never leave
   *Ever close, God abide with me
   (repeat last time)


There in the night, Gethsemane
Before the cross, before the nails
Overwhelmed, alone you prayed
You met us in our suffering and bore our shame

   Chorus

Oh love that will not ever let me go
Love that will not ever let me go
You never let me go
Love that will not ever let me go

And up ahead, eternity
We'll weep no more and sing for joy, abide with me
We'll weep no more and sing for joy, abide with me

   Chorus


Beautiful, Scandalous Night

Go on up the mountain of mercy
To the crimson perpetual tide
Kneel down on the shore
Be thirsty no more
Go under and be purified

Follow Christ to the holy mountain

Sinner sorry and wrecked by the fall
Cleanse your heart and your soul
In the mountain that flowed
For you and for me and for all

   At the wonderful, tragic, mysterious tree
   On that beautiful, scandalous night you and me
   We're atoned by his blood and forever washed white
   On that beautiful, scandalous night

On the hillside, you will be delivered

At the foot of the cross justified
And your spirit restored by the river that poured
From our blessed Savior's side

   Chorus


The Fateful Question
Matthew 26:57-68
The World's True King: A Study in Matthew

Steve Gilbertson

Jesus has been brought before the high priest, who says, "I adjure you by the living
God, tell us if you are the Messiah, the Son of God." Here for the first time (and under
oath!), Jesus must respond to the direct question. This is the climactic moment toward
which Matthew has been building his presentation of Jesus as "the world's true king."
Jesus' response will seal his fate. It seals our fate, too.

Matthew 26:57-68 (ESV)

57 Then those who had seized Jesus led him to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and
the elders had gathered. 58 And Peter was following him at a distance, as far as the courtyard
of the high priest, and going inside he sat with the guards to see the end. 59 Now the chief
priests and the whole council were seeking false testimony against Jesus that they might put him
to death, 60 but they found none, though many false witnesses came forward. At last two came
forward 61 and said, "This man said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to rebuild it in
three days.'" 62 And the high priest stood up and said, "Have you no answer to make? What is it
that these men testify against you?" 63 But Jesus remained silent. And the high priest said to him,
"I adjure you by the living God, tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God." 64 Jesus said to him,
"You have said so. But I tell you, from now on you will see the Son of Man seated at he right hand
of Power and coming on the clouds of heaven." 65 Then the high priest tore his robes and said, "He
has uttered blasphemy. What further witnesses do we need? You have now heard his blasphemy.
66 What is your judgment?" They answered, "He deserves death." 67 Then they spit in his face and
struck him. And some slapped him, 68 saying, "Prophesy to us, you Christ! Who is it that struck you?"
