Hymn # 362 – Nothing but the Blood 

  1. What can wash away my sin?
    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
    What can make me whole again?
    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

    Refrain:

    O precious is the flow
    that makes me white as snow;
    no other fount I know;
    nothing but the blood of Jesus.

  2. For my pardon this I see:
    nothing but the blood of Jesus.
    For my cleansing this my plea:
    nothing but the blood of Jesus.
    (Refrain)

  3. Nothing can for sin atone:
    nothing but the blood of Jesus.
    Naught of good that I have done:
    nothing but the blood of Jesus.
    (Refrain)

 

 

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE  – Worship Assistant

Dear Lord God, we constantly hear so much each day that’s confusing. So many people are talking for so long, and so loudly, and with so much anger. And so much of what we hear contradicts so much else of what we hear.

 

We can try to sort it all out, Lord, but it’s not easy. We can try to filter out what’s distracting, and demeaning, and harmful. But that’s really hard, too.

 

Above all, we need to focus on that which CAN ONLY be true, because there’s no falsehood in it at all. And that, Father, is Your Word. Your Word is the beacon that’ll guide us home when the world is dark, and confusing, and filled with doubt and fear.

 

Help us to be hungry to hear from You in Your Word. Give us discernment to hear Your Spirit speak to us through Your Word. Give us willing hearts to follow the leading of Your all-wise Spirit.

 

[This morning, Lord, please hear the praises and the prayer requests of Your people….]

 

Father, we pray today for those in our congregation who are in need of healing. Some of us need our bodies healed. Some of us are dealing with physical conditions that hold us down, and hold us back, and hold us in the vise grip of fear.

 

We also pray, Father, for those who need their hearts healed. Some of us are mourning over losses that have left painful empty spaces in our hearts. Some of us are dealing with disappointments. Some of us are frustrated.

 

Some of us have relationships that hurt and make us sad. Some of us are fearful for the future. We wonder if You’ve forgotten about us. We wonder if You actually can see us through and take care of us. Some of us are even wondering if You’re real, Father.

 

And so, we need You to work in a mighty way, Lord. Either change our circumstances through Your mighty power, OR, change the way that we RESPOND to those circumstances. Replace our fear with assurance, and our grief with confidence that You won’t disappoint us.

 

Please bless all of our military and our first responders. We thank You, Lord, for the desire that You’ve put in their hearts to protect us. And we ask that You steer all of them into a saving relationship with Your Son, Jesus.

 

Father, please bring encouragement and growth into the hearts of all those of our congregation who are living in nursing homes and retirement communities. May they always feel strengthened by the love of their church family.

 

We pray that each of us, individually, will be faithful in living out what it is that You have for us to do and to be. Help us to be people of mercy and faithfulness who are devoted to spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to others who don’t yet know Him as their Savior and their Lord.

 

What we want, Lord, is to be a church that people are attracted to because they see You here and feel You here among us. We don’t want the right recipe. We don’t want the right gimmick. We want YOU, and Your living power displayed among us.

 

And Father, this week, give each one of us the opportunity to tell someone who doesn’t know You why we love Jesus. And when that opportunity comes, help us to say YES to Your Spirit, and open our mouths, and share the words that You’ll give us to say.

 

In faith, we pray these things in the holy name of Jesus, amen.



***OFFERTORY 

[

***   Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
praise him, all creatures here below;
praise him above, ye heavenly host;
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Amen.

 

 

***SCRIPTURE READING... Revelation 2:18-29 (NIV) 

              

 

18 “To the angel of the church in Thyatira write:

These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze. 19 I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first.

 

20 Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. 21 I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. 22 So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. 23 I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds. 24 Now I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets (I will not impose any other burden on you): 25 Only hold on to what you have until I come.

 

26 To him who overcomes and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations—

27‘He will rule them with an iron scepter;

he will dash them to pieces like pottery’—

just as I have received authority from my Father. 28 I will also give him the morning star. 29 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. 

 

The Word of God for the people of God.

Ø  Hymn #465 – Holy Spirit, Truth Divine 

  1. Holy Spirit, Truth divine,
    dawn upon this soul of mine;
    Word of God and inward light,
    wake my spirit, clear my sight.

  2. Holy Spirit, Love divine,

    kindle every high desire;
    perish self in thy pure fire.

    be my Lord, and I shall be
    firmly bound, forever free.
