People of Jesus Christ, in whom are you trusting?

My Soul Finds Rest/Psalm 62   Sandra McCracken

Oh my God hear my cry
from the depths I call out to you
You give your mercy and light
in the dark, in the wilderness

 

   Chorus

   My soul finds rest in God alone
   my salvation comes from him
   My soul finds rest, God is my home
   I will not be shaken, I will not be shaken

 

You are my shield and my strength
train my feet for this battle
Our God is mighty to save
I will wait, I will wait for him

 

Bridge

O my strength, I sing praise to you
O my strength, I sing praise to you
In joy or pain, I sing praise to you
Night or day, I sing praise to you

Psalm 5:1-3 (unison)

For the director of music. For pipes. A psalm of David.

Listen to my words, Lord, consider my lament.
Hear my cry for help, my King and my God,
    for to you I pray.

In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
    in the morning I lay my requests before you
    and wait expectantly.

I Will Wait for You - Psalm 130    Getty

(Listen & meditate on this scripture song as we consider Psalm 130 today)

Opening Scripture    based on Psalm 130

Lift up your voice and call out to God.
   We cry out, believing that God hears us.
Come together and wait for God.
   We come together, trusting that God is still speaking.
Surely God’s presence is here with us now.
   We wait in hope, for God’s steadfast love lifts our hearts.
Come, worship the Lord.
   We celebrate the power of God that restores us.

Cornerstone    Hillsong

My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus' blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
but wholly trust in Jesus' Name (2x)

 

     Chorus

     Christ alone cornerstone
     weak made strong in the Savior's love
     Through the storm He is Lord - Lord of all

When darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil
My anchor holds within the veil (chorus)

He is Lord, Lord of all… (chorus 2x)

When He shall come with trumpet sound
oh may I then in Him be found
Dressed in His righteousness alone
faultless stand before the throne…

Merciful God,
I confess that I have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed,
by what I have done,
and by what I have left undone.

(silence)


I have not loved you
with my whole heart and mind and strength.

(silence)


I have not loved my neighbors as myself.

(silence)


In your mercy forgive what I have been,
help me amend what I am,
and direct what I shall be,
so that I may delight in your will
and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your holy name.
Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Sermon Scripture

 

Psalm 130  A song of ascents.

   1  Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord;
   2  Lord, hear my voice.
       Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.

   3  If you, Lord, kept a record of sins,
       Lord, who could stand?
   4  But with you there is forgiveness,
       so that we can, with reverence, serve you.

   5  I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
       and in his word I put my hope.
   6  I wait for the Lord
       more than watchmen wait for the morning,
       more than watchmen wait for the morning.

   7  Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
       for with the Lord is unfailing love
       and with him is full redemption.
   8 He himself will redeem Israel
       from all their sins.

I Will Wait for You - Psalm 130    Shane and Shane

(sing along as a response to the word)

Out of the depths I cry to You
 in darkest places I will call
Incline Your ear to me anew

and hear my cry for mercy, Lord

 

Were You to count my sinful ways
how could I come before Your throne
Yet full forgiveness meets my gaze
I stand redeemed by grace alone

     Chorus

     I will wait for You, I will wait for You
     on Your word I will rely
     I will wait for You, surely wait for You
     till my soul is satisfied

 

So put your hope in God alone
take courage in His power to save
Completely and forever won
by Christ emerging from the grave (chorus)

 

(interlude 2x)

 

Now He has come to make a way
and God Himself has paid the price
That all who trust in Him today
find healing in His sacrifice

 

That all who trust in Him today
find healing in His sacrifice

 

     Final Chorus

     I will wait for You I will wait for You
        through the storm and through the night
     I will wait for You surely wait for You

        for Your love is my delight

 Celebration at the Lord's Table

Jesus said, “I am the bread of life.

Whoever comes to me will never be hungry,

and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”

John 6:35

                      *Use traditional or abridged communion liturgy below.

 

Traditional Liturgy

Meaning of the Sacrament

Beloved in the Lord Jesus Christ,

the Holy Supper we are about to celebrate

is a feast of remembrance, of communion, and of hope.

We come remembering that our Lord Jesus Christ

perfectly fulfilled the law, even to death on the cross.

Because of God’s eternal covenant of grace, we are accepted.

We will never be forsaken.

 

We come to commune with this same Christ

who has promised to be with us always.

Christ is the true Bread which nourishes us

and the Vine in whom we must live if we are to bear fruit.

The Holy Spirit unites us into one body

and in communion with all the saints.

So we receive this supper in Christ’s love

and our affection for one another.

We come in hope believing that

as surely as we eat this bread and drink this cup,

we will be raised from the dead into eternal life.

 

This is the Lord’s Table. Come, for all things are now ready.

 

Communion Prayer

The Lord be with you.

     And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

     We lift them up to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

     It is right to give our thanks and praise.

 

It is right, and a good and joyful thing,

always and everywhere to give thanks to you,

almighty and everlasting God.

You created the heavens and the earth;

you preserve us with your care;

you revealed the fullness of your love for us

by sending Jesus Christ.

By his life, death, and resurrection

you have reconciled us to yourself.

 

With the heavenly host

and with the saints of all times and places,

we lift up our hearts in joyful praise, saying:

 

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,

heaven and earth are full of your glory.

Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the highest.

 

Gracious God,

send your Holy Spirit upon us, we pray,

that the bread which we break

and the cup which we bless

may be to us the communion

of the body and blood of Christ.

Accept the gift of our lives

that we may live in you and serve your kingdom.

Being joined together in Christ,

may your whole church be one;

and at the last day bring us with all your saints

into the joy of your eternal kingdom.

Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

Amen.

 

Words of Institution

The Lord Jesus, the same night he was betrayed, took bread;

and when he had given thanks,

he broke it

 

(Break the bread)

Jesus broke the bread and gave it to his disciples, saying,

“Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you:

do this in remembrance of me.”

 

(Lift the cup)

After the same manner also, he took the cup when they had eaten,

saying, “This cup is the new testament in my blood:

this do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

 

Sharing of the Bread and Cup

(As the bread is distributed say to one another)

     The Body of Christ, broken for you.

(As the cup is distributed, say to one another)

     The Blood of Christ, shed for you.

Blessing     


Wait for the LORD,
   I wait with deep longing;
   and in his word I stand, waiting in hope.

Hope in the LORD!
   For with the LORD there is steadfast love, 
   and with the LORD is great power to save.

Go into this week with assurance, hope and promise:
the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ rest upon you – and even unsettle you;
the love of God, creator and giver of life, embrace you – and even confront you;
and the presence of the Holy Spirit encourage you – and surprise you,
this day and all your days.   

Amen
