SONG

Come and stand before your maker full of wonder, full of fear;
Come behold his power and glory yet with confidence draw near,
For the one who holds the heavens and commands the stars above
Is the God who bends to bless us with an unrelenting love.

Rejoice!
Come and lift your hands and raise your voice;
He is worthy of all praise, Rejoice!
Sing the mercies of your King and with trembling, rejoice.

We are children of the promise, the beloved of the Lord.
Won with everlasting kindness, bought with sacrificial blood.
Bringing reconciliation to a world that longs to know
The affections of a father who will never let them go.

Rejoice…

All our sickness, all our sorrows Jesus carried up the hill.
He has walked this path before us, he is walking with us still;
Turning tragedy to triumph, turning agony to praise,
There is blessing in the battle so take heart and stand amazed.

Rejoice!
When you cry to Him, He hears your voice;
He will wipe away your tears, Rejoice!
In the midst of suffering, He will help you sing

Rejoice…

 

BIBLE READING

Luke 7:1-10

7 When Jesus had finished saying all this to the people who were listening, he entered Capernaum. 2 There a centurion’s servant, whom his master valued highly, was ill and about to die. 3 The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant. 4 When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, ‘This man deserves to have you do this, 5 because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue.’ 6 So Jesus went with them.

He was not far from the house when the centurion sent friends to say to him: ‘Lord, don’t trouble yourself, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. 7 That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed. 8 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, “Go”, and he goes; and that one, “Come”, and he comes. I say to my servant, “Do this”, and he does it.’

9 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said, ‘I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.’ 10 Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well.

 

SONG

Jesus is the King, ruler over everything
Jesus is the one, promised one the Son of God
Jesus is the Lord, he’s the one you can’t ignore
Jesus, Jesus, he is the King. He is the King

He commanded the fisherman
Hey come follow me, and they did and they did
And they did because…

Jesus is the King…

He commanded the evil ones
Hey come out of him, and they did and they did
And they did because…

Jesus is the King…

He commanded the wind and waves
Hey be still be still, and they did and they did
And they did because…

Jesus is the King…

He promised that three days after death
He’d rise again, and He did and He did and He did because…

Jesus is the King…

 

 

BIBLE TALK by Richard Hopkins

Sermon outline:

See the power of Jesus

Copy the faith of the centurion
▪ Ask humbly
▪ Ask confidently

 

SONG

By faith we see the hand of God in the light of creation’s grand design,
in the lives of those who prove His faithfulness,
who walk by faith and not by sight.

By faith our fathers roamed the earth,
with the power of His promise in their hearts
of a holy city built by God’s own hand; a place where peace and justice reign.

We will stand as children of the promise.
We will fix our eyes on Him, our soul’s reward,
till the race is finished and the work is done, we’ll walk by faith and not by sight.

By faith the prophets saw a day when the longed-for Messiah would appear
with the power to break the chains of sin and death
and rise triumphant from the grave.

By faith the church was called to go in the power of the Spirit to the lost,
to deliver captives and to preach good news in every corner of the earth.

We will stand…

By faith this mountain shall be moved and the power of the gospel shall prevail.
For we know in Christ all things are possible for all who call upon His name.

We will stand…

 

PRAYERS led by Helen and guests.
During the prayers please join in with the words in bold if you are able.

 

Lord Jesus, we know that if you say it:
It will happen! Amen.

 

SONG

Everyone needs compassion,
love that’s never failing: let mercy fall on me.
Everyone needs forgiveness,
the kindness of a Saviour, the hope of nations.

Saviour, he can move the mountains.
My God is mighty to save, he is mighty to save.
Forever – author of salvation.
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave.

So take me as you find me,
all my fears and failures: fill my life again.
I give my life to follow
everything I believe in; now I surrender.

Saviour, he can move the mountains…

Shine your light and let the whole world see.
We’re singing for the glory of the risen King!
(repeat)
