Music and Worship: Sunday, May 28th, 2017
This past week we gathered as a church family to declare the goodness and greatness of our God, and to dig deeper into the Word as we continue on in our Revelation Series. Here is a recap of the songs we sang, along with some of the scriptures that inform them!
We hope you are encouraged and refreshed by the truths that you hear and read below.
Enter the Gates
For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. (Matthew 7:14)
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4)
A voice cries: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain. And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” (Isaiah 40:3-5)
The Same Power
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:57)
In Christ Alone
But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead. (Philippians 3:7-11)
