The Free Gift that Costs Everything (Pt 3)

The parable of the tax collector and the Pharisee. Those who trust in themselves and their own righteousness will perish. Those who humbly plead with the Lord for mercy in Christ will be saved.

Praise and Prayer

Because of Your Love

As we come into Your presence
We remember ev’ry blessing
That You’ve poured out so freely from above
Lifting gratitude and praises
For compassion so amazing
Lord we’ve come to give You thanks
For all You’ve done
Because of Your love we’re forgiven
Because of Your love our hearts are clean
We lift You up with songs of freedom
Forever we’re changed because of Your love

The Everlasting Love of God

Verse 1
How vast the everlasting love of God
How sure and faithful as the morning
This love so great for us could never fail
Nor end for it had no beginning

Verse 2
How strong the Father’s beating heart for us
What mercy runs to meet the sinner
As rivers yearn to reach the lowest place
His grace shall flow to me forever

Oh the everlasting love of God
It shall ever be my song
So immense and free more than life to me
The everlasting love of God

Verse 3
How great and precious my Redeemer’s blood
How pure the passion of the Savior
My sins are drowned beneath this mighty flood
My soul is swept away with wonder

Verse 4
How deep the measure of the Spirit’s work
Who dwells in us who seals the promise
God’s love through time and all eternity
Shall stand and we shall stand upon it
What now could separate us from it

Opening Hymn

All Praise to God Who Reigns Above (TH #4)

1 All praise to God, who reigns above,
The God of all creation,
The God of wonders, power, and love,
The God of our salvation!
With healing balm my soul He fills,
The God who every sorrow stills, –
To God all praise and glory!

2 What God’s almighty power hath made
His gracious mercy keepeth;
By morning dawn or evening shade
His watchful eye ne’er sleepeth;
Within the kingdom of His might
Lo, all is just and all is right, –
To God all praise and glory!

3 I cried to Him in time of need:
Lord God, oh, hear my calling!
For death He gave me life indeed
And kept my feet from falling.
For this my thanks shall endless be;
Oh, thank Him, thank our God, with me, –
To God all praise and glory!

4 The Lord forsaketh not His flock,
His chosen generation;
He is their Refuge and their Rock,
Their Pace and their Salvation.
As with a mother’s tender hand
He leads His own, His chosen band, –
To God all praise and glory!

5 Ye who confess Christ’s holy name,
To God give praise and glory!
Ye who the Father’s power proclaim,
To God give praise and glory!
All idols under foot be trod,
The Lord is God! The Lord is God!
To God all praise and glory!

6 Then come before His presence now
And banish fear and sadness;
To your Redeemer pay your vow
And sing with joy and gladness;
Though great distress my soul befell,
The Lord, my God, did all things well, –
To God all praise and Glory!

Blessed Jesus at Your Word (TH #303)

1 Blessed Jesus, at your word
we are gathered all to hear you.
Let our hearts and souls be stirred
now to seek and love and fear you.
By your gospel pure and holy,
teach us, Lord, to love you solely.

2 All our knowledge, sense, and sight
lie in deepest darkness shrouded,
till your Spirit breaks our night
with your beams of truth unclouded.
You alone to God can win us;
you must work all good within us.

3 Glorious Lord, yourself impart;
Light of Light, from God proceeding,
open lips and ears and heart;
help us by your Spirit’s leading.
Hear the cry your church now raises;
Lord, accept our prayers and praises.

4 Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
praise to you and adoration!
Grant that we your Word may trust
and obtain true consolation,
while we here below must wander,
till we sing your praises yonder.

Closing Hymn

My Hope is Built on Nothing Less (TH #521)

1 My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

2 When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

3 His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.

4 When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
In Him, my righteousness, alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.
