SONG

All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou, burning sun with golden beam
Thou, silver moon with softer gleam
O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Let all things their Creator bless
And worship Him in humbleness
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son
And praise the Spirit, Three-in-One
O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

All the redeemed washed by His blood
Come and rejoice in His great love
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Christ has defeated every sin
Cast all your burdens now on Him
O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

He shall return in pow’r to reign
Heaven and earth will join to say
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Then who shall fall on bended knee?
All creatures of our God and King
O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

PRAYERS

 

Our children and young people leave us to go to their groups

 

SONG

Turn your eyes upon Jesus!
Look full in His wonderful face!
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

Turn your eyes to the hillside,
Where justice and mercy embraced.
There the Son of God gave His life for us
And our measureless debt was erased.

Jesus, to You we lift our eyes!
Jesus, our glory and our prize!
We adore You, behold You, our Saviour ever true!
Oh Jesus, we turn our eyes to You!

Turn your eyes to the morning
And see Christ the Lion awake.
What a glorious dawn, fear of death is gone,
For we carry His life in our veins!

Jesus, to You we lift our eyes…

Turn your eyes to the heavens,
Our King will return for His own.
Every knee will bow, every tongue will shout,
‘All glory to Jesus alone!’

Jesus, to You we lift our eyes…

 

BIBLE READING

Matthew 24:36-51

36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. 37 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, 39 and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left. 42 Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

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.

 

BIBLE TALK

 

SONG

Jesus is Lord – the cry that echoes through creation;
resplendent power, eternal Word, our Rock.
The Son of God,
the King whose glory fills the heavens,
yet bids us come to taste this living Bread.

Jesus is Lord –
whose voice sustains the stars and planets,
yet in His wisdom laid aside His crown.
Jesus the Man,
who washed our feet, who bore our suffering
became a curse to bring salvation’s plan.

Jesus is Lord – the tomb is gloriously empty!
Not even death could crush this King of love!
The price is paid,
the chains are loosed, and we’re forgiven,
and we can run into the arms of God.

‘Jesus is Lord’ – a shout of joy, a cry of anguish,
as He returns, and every knee bows low.
Then every eye and every heart will see His glory,
the Judge of all will take His children home.

 

CONFESSION

Lord God, you created all things.
Each of us owes everything to you
and ought to serve you wholeheartedly.
Thank you for all you have given us.

But we have all sinned
and failed to acknowledge you as God.
In turn, we don’t deserve anything good from you.
We are sorry for many sins.

Thank you that in love
you sent your Son Jesus Christ to us.
He lived a sinless life, pleasing to you.
Yet He died a shameful death in our place.
Thank you for His death for us.

Then you raised Him from the dead,
conquering sin, death and hell.
In Him new life and His righteousness
are given to those who believe.
Thank you for His glorious resurrection.

To all who trust in Him,
you pour out your Holy Spirit,
equipping us to live for you
and making us more like Jesus day by day.
Thank you for your life-changing Spirit.

Jesus will return to judge the living and the dead,
Taking those who belong to Him to be with Him for ever,
But condemning those who do not belong to Him.
Thank you that He will return in majesty.

This past week, we have had ups and downs.
In our battle with sin, sometimes we triumphed
and sometimes we have given in.
Thank you for those victories.
We are sorry for our failures.

You promise to strengthen and keep
all who continue in repentance and faith
until you bring us home to glory.
Thank you for these wonderful truths.
Please help us to believe them now and to go on believing them. In Jesus’ name, Amen

 

SONG

When I fear my faith will fail,
Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail,
He will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold
Through life’s fearful path;
For my love is often cold; He must hold me fast.

He will hold me fast, He will hold me fast;
For my Saviour loves me so, He will hold me fast.

Those He saves are His delight,
Christ will hold me fast;
Precious in His holy sight, He will hold me fast.
He’ll not let my soul be lost;
His promises shall last;
Bought by Him at such a cost, He will hold me fast.

For my life He bled and died, Christ will hold me fast;
Justice has been satisfied; He will hold me fast.
Raised with Him to endless life, He will hold me fast
‘Till our faith is turned to sight
When He comes at last!

 

THE LORD’S SUPPER

On the night he was betrayed, Jesus shared a meal with his friends. He took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.”

And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, for this is the blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

Father God, we gather now as Jesus’ friends. We thank you for Jesus’ body which was broken for us. We thank you for his blood, poured out for our forgiveness. We thank you for the hope of that day when we feast with you forever. We who trust in Jesus come to this meal now at your invitation, remembering Christ’s death for us and longing for his return. In eating and drinking together, we declare these truths with joy:

Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.
Hallelujah!

Father, we eat in remembrance of Jesus.

Father, we drink in remembrance of Jesus

And we continue to rejoice:

Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.
Hallelujah!

 

SONG

When peace like a river, flows by my way,
or when sorrows like sea billows roll;
whatever my lot, you have taught me to say:
it is well, it is well, with my soul.

It is well (it is well), with my soul (with my soul).
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan may shake me,
though trials may come,
let this sweet assurance control;
that Christ has regarded my helpless state
and has shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

O Lord, it’s for you, for your coming we wait.
The sky, not the grave, is our goal.
The trumpet shall sound, and the Lord shall come down
Blesséd hope, blesséd rest of my soul!
