Livestream for Sunday, January 16th:

How Firm a Foundation

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!
What more can He say than to you He hath said-
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

“Fear not, I am with thee, oh, be not dismayed,
For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by My gracious, omnipotent hand.

“When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
For I will be with thee thy trouble to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.

“When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not harm thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine.

“The soul that on Jesus doth lean for repose,
I will not, I will not, desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.”

That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.”

Thy Word

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet,
And a light unto my path
(repeat)

When I feel afraid, think I’ve lost my way,
Still, you’re there, right beside me
Nothing will I fear as long as you are near;
Please be near me to the end!

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet,
And a light unto my path
(repeat)

I Will Arise (Come Ye Sinners)

Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love and pow’r.

Come, ye thirsty, come, and welcome,
God’s free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.

I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
Oh, there are ten thousand charms

Come, ye weary, heavy-laden,
Lost and ruined by the fall;
If you tarry till you’re better,
You will never come at all.

I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
Oh, there are ten thousand charms

Let not conscience make you linger,
Not of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him

I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
Oh, there are ten thousand charms

Only a Holy God

Who else commands all the hosts of heaven?
Who else could make every king bow down?
Who else can whisper and darkness trembles?
Only a Holy God

What other beauty demands such praises?
What other splendor outshines the sun?
What other majesty rules with justice?
Only a Holy God

Come and behold him,
the One and the only!
Cry out, sing holy!
Forever a Holy God;
Come and worship the Holy God!

What other glory consumes like fire?
What other power can raise the dead?
What other name remains undefeated?
Only a Holy God!

Come and behold him,
the One and the only!
Cry out, sing holy!
Forever a Holy God;
Come and worship the Holy God!

Who else could rescue me from my failing?
Who else would offer his only Son?
Who else invites me to call him Father?
Only a Holy God!
Only my Holy God!

Come and behold him,
the One and the only!
Cry out, sing holy!
Forever a Holy God;
Come and worship the Holy God!

Worthy is the Lamb!

Sermon: Remember, God Judges Sin!

Text: Jude 5-7
I. A Reminder for the Church (v5a). Now I want to remind you. Although you once fully knew it…

His reminder is that God judges sin. (verse 4)

The ongoing need to be reminded of this truth –

Scripture speaks exactly to this point – (1 Cor 6:9-11; Eph 5:5-8; Gal 6:7; on God judging sin, see Acts 10:42; Rom 2:16; 2 Tim 4:1; Heb 13:4; 2 Cor 5:9-10; ; Mat 7:21-23; Rev 20:11-15).

II. Examples of God’s Judgment (v5b-7). Jude backs up his reminder with three examples of God judging sin.

All three of these examples involve those who stepped outside the boundaries set by God, and received his judgment.

(1) Unbelieving Israel (5b).

Jesus –

Israel was rescued –

Israel rebelled – (Num 14:11-12, 29; see Heb 3:16-19)

(2) Fallen Angels (6).

Genesis 6:1-4

Rebellion – The angels did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling.

“kept” –

(3) Sodom and Gomorrah (7).  another link with sexual sin (Gen 19:4-5).

“sexual immorality” –

”and pursued unnatural desire” (literally, “other flesh”) – homosexuality (see Romans 1:24, 26-27).

An example for us – “undergoing a punishment of eternal fire”

Summary – Jude’s language for all three of these examples: “destroyed” (v5), “judgment” (v6), and “punishment” (v7).
