Livestream for Sunday, October 17th:

Crown Him with Many Crowns/All Hail the Power

Crown Him with many crowns,
the Lamb upon His throne.
Hark! How the heavenly anthem drowns
all music but its own.
Awake, my soul, and sing
of Him who died for thee,
And hail Him as thy matchless King through all eternity.

Crown Him the Lord of love,
behold his hands and side
Rich wounds, yet visible above,
in beauty glorified
No angel in the sky
can fully bear that sight
But downward bends his wondering eye
at mysteries so bright

Crown Him the Lord of life,
who triumphed over the grave,
And rose victorious in the strife
for those He came to save.
His glories now we sing,
who died, and rose on high,
Who died eternal life to bring,
and lives that death may die.

Crown Him the Lord of heaven,
one with the Father known
One with the Spirit thru him giv’n
from yonder glorious throne
To thee be endless praise,
for thou for us hast died!
Be thou, O Lord, thru endless days
adored and magnified!

Crown Him the Lord of lords,
who over all doth reign,
Who once on earth, the incarnate Word,
for ransomed sinners slain,
Now lives in realms of light,
where saints with angels sing
Their songs before Him day and night,
their God, Redeemer, King.

Crown Him the Lord of Heaven,
enthroned in worlds above,
Crown Him the King to Whom is giv’n
the wondrous name of Love.
Crown Him with many crowns,
as thrones before Him fall;
Crown Him, ye kings, with many crowns,
for He is King of all.

All hail the pow’r of Jesus’ name!
Let angels prostrate fall!
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown him Lord of all!
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown him Lord,
Crown him Lord;
Crown him Lord of all!
Crown Him with Many Crowns – Lyrics by Matthew Bridges/Godfrey Thring; Music by George Elvey;

Good and Gracious King

I approach the throne of glory
Nothing in my hands I bring
But the promise of acceptance
From a good and gracious King

I will give to You my burden
As You give to me Your strength
Come and fill me with Your Spirit
As I sing to You this praise

You deserve the greater glory!
Overcome, I lift my voice
To the King in need of nothing,
Empty handed I rejoice!
You deserve the greater glory!
Overcome with joy I sing
By Your love I am accepted
You’re a good and gracious King!

Oh, what grace that You would see me
As Your child and as Your friend
Safe, secure in You forever
I pour out my praise again!

You deserve the greater glory!
Overcome, I lift my voice
To the King in need of nothing,
Empty handed I rejoice!
You deserve the greater glory!
Overcome with joy I sing
By Your love I am accepted
You’re a good and gracious King!

Holy, holy, Lord Almighty!
Good and gracious, Good and gracious
Holy, holy, Lord Almighty!
Good and gracious King!
(repeat)

You deserve the greater glory!
Overcome, I lift my voice
To the King in need of nothing,
Empty handed I rejoice!
You deserve the greater glory!
Overcome with joy I sing
By Your love I am accepted
You’re a good and gracious King!

O Great God

O great God of highest heaven
Occupy my lowly heart
Own it all and reign supreme
Conquer every rebel power
Let no vice or sin remain
That resists Your holy war
You have loved and purchased me
Make me Yours forevermore

I was blinded by my sin
Had no ears to hear Your voice
Did not know Your love within
Had no taste for heaven’s joys
Then Your Spirit gave me life
Opened up Your Word to me
Through the gospel of Your Son
Gave me endless hope and peace

Help me now to live a life
That’s dependent on Your grace
Keep my heart and guard my soul
From the evils that I face
You are worthy to be praised!
With my every thought and deed
O great God of highest heaven
Glorify Your Name through me!

You are worthy to be praised!
With my every thought and deed
O great God of highest heaven
Glorify Your Name through me!

Awesome is our strong God!
Mighty is our God!

Ev’ry breath and ev’ry step,

Awesome is our strong God!
Mighty is our God!
Sing out! Raise your hands and shout out!
Awesome is our strong God!
Mighty is our God!

There is none higher! (No!)
There is none greater! (No!)
There is none stronger than our God!

Sermon: The Basics of Christian Giving

Text: 2 Corinthians 9:6-15

1. Give Generously (v6).

Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you“ (Luke 6:38).

2. Give Willingly (v7).

If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother, but you shall open your hand to him and lend him sufficient for his need, whatever it may be. …You shall give to him freely, and your heart shall not be grudging when you give to him…” (Deut 15:7-8, 10).

3. Give Cheerfully (v7).

4. Give Expectantly (v8).

5. Give Faithfully (v8).

6. Give Freely (v9). Psalm 112:9.

7. Give Fearlessly (v10).  Isaiah 55:10

8. Give Increasingly (v11).

9. Give Purposefully (v12).

10. Give Humbly (v13, 14).

11. Give Boldly (v13, 15). We want them to know why we are giving!

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.” 2 Cor 8:9

12. Give Worshipfully (12b-15). Our generosity is all for the glory of God!

Apply God’s Word:

 

Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee,
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not,
As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be.

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see!
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today, and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside.

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see!
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!
