COME THOU FOUNT

Come Thou fount of ev'ry blessing,

Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;

Streams of mercy, never ceasing,

Call for songs of loudest praise.

Teach me some melodious sonnet,

Sung by flaming tongues above;

Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it,

Mount of thy redeeming love.

 

Here I raise my Ebenezer

Hither by thy help I've come

And I hope, by thy good pleasure

Safely to arrive at home

Jesus sought me when a stranger,

Wand'ring from the fold of God;

He, to rescue me from danger,

Interposed His precious blood.

 

O to grace how great a debtor

Daily I'm constrained to be!

Let Thy goodness, like a fetter

Bind my wand'ring heart to Thee.

Prone to wander, Lord I feel it,

Prone to leave the God I love;

Here's my heart, O take and seal it;

Seal it for Thy courts above.

 

Prone to wander, Lord I feel it,

Prone to leave the God I love;

Here's my heart, O take and seal it;

Seal it for Thy courts above.

GOD YOU’RE SO GOOD

Amazing love that welcomes me,

the kindness of mercy

That bought with blood wholeheartedly,

my soul undeserving

 

Chorus

God, You’re so good,

God, You’re so good

God, You’re so good,

You’re so good to me

 

Behold the cross, age to age,

and hour by hour

The dead are raised, the sinner saved,

the work of Your power

 

Chorus (2x)

God, You’re so good,

God, You’re so good,

God, You’re so good,

You’re so good to me

 

Bridge (2x)

I am blessed, I am called,

I am healed, I am whole

I am saved in Jesus’ name

Highly favored, anointed,

filled with Your power

For the glory of Jesus’ name

 

And should this life bring suffering,

Lord, I will remember

What Calvary has bought for me,

both now and forever

 

Chorus (2x)

God, You’re so good,

God, You’re so good,

God, You’re so good,

You’re so good to me

 

Bridge (2x)

I am blessed, I am called,

I am healed, I am whole

I am saved in Jesus’ name

Highly favored, anointed,

filled with Your power

For the glory of Jesus’ name

 

Chorus

God, You’re so good,

God, You’re so good,

God, You’re so good,

You’re so good to me

SPEAK O LORD

Speak, O Lord as we come to You,

To receive the food of Your Holy Word.

Take Your truth, plant it deep in us;

Shape and fashion us in Your likeness,

That the light of Christ

might be seen today

In our acts of love and our deeds of faith.

Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us

All Your purposes, for Your glory.

 

Teach us Lord, full obedience,

Holy reverence, true humility.

Test our thoughts and our attitudes

In the radiance of Your purity.

Cause our faith to rise,

Cause our eyes to see

Your majestic love and authority.

Words of power that can never fail;

Let their truth prevail over unbelief.

 

Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds;

Help us grasp the heights

of Your plans for us.

Truths unchanged from the dawn of time,

That will echo down through eternity.

And by grace we'll stand on Your promises;

And by faith we'll walk

as You walk with us.

Speak, O Lord, ‘till your church is built

And the earth is filled with Your glory.

Sermon Notes

Day 1: The Testimony of John the Baptist
And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?” (20) He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ.” (21) And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he answered, “No.” (22) So they said to him, “Who are you? We need to give an answer to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?” (23) He said, “I am the voice of one crying out in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of the Lord,’ as the prophet Isaiah said.” (24) (Now they had been sent from the Pharisees.) (25) They asked him, “Then why are you baptizing, if you are neither the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?” (26) John answered them, “I baptize with water, but among you stands one you do not know, (27) even he who comes after me, the strap of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie.” (28) These things took place in Bethany across the Jordan, where John was baptizing.

Day 2: More Testimony of John
(29) The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! (30) This is he of whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who ranks before me, because he was before me.’ (31) I myself did not know him, but for this purpose I came baptizing with water, that he might be revealed to Israel.” (32) And John bore witness: “I saw the Spirit descend from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him. (33) I myself did not know him, but he who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain, this is he who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ (34) And I have seen and have borne witness that this is the Son of God.”

 

Day 3: John’s Disciples Become Jesus’ Disciples
(35) The next day again John was standing with two of his disciples, (36) and he looked at Jesus as he walked by and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!”   (37) The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. (38) Jesus turned and saw them following and said to them, “What are you seeking?” And they said to him, “Rabbi” (which means Teacher), “where are you staying?” (39) He said to them, “Come and you will see.” So they came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day, for it was about the tenth hour. (40) One of the two who heard John speak and followed Jesus was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. (41) He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means Christ). (42)   He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon the son of John. You shall be called Cephas” (which means Peter).

Day 4: Jesus Seeks Disciples in Galilee
(43) The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.” (44) Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. (45) Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found him of whom Moses in the Law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” (46) Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” (47) Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!” (48) Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” (49) Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” (50) Jesus answered him, “Because I said to you, ‘I saw you under the fig tree,’ do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” (51) And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”

 

From this passage, let us fix our minds and hearts on three realities about Following Jesus.

  1. Following Jesus means surrendering to self to serve a new King.

  2. Following Jesus means inviting others to see and serve the King.

  3. Following Jesus requires that we see the King rightly and believe.

COME BEHOLD...

Come behold the wondrous myst'ry,

in the dawning of the King

He the theme of heaven's praises,

robed in frail humanity

In our longing, in our darkness,

now the Light of Life has come

Look to Christ who condescended,

took on flesh to ransom us

 

Come behold the wondrous myst'ry,

He the perfect Son of Man

In His living, in His suff'ring,

never trace nor stain of sin

See the true and better Adam,

come to save the hellbound man

Christ the great and sure fulfillment

of the law, in Him we stand

 

Come behold the wondrous myst'ry,

Christ the Lord upon the tree

In the stead of ruined sinners,

hangs the Lamb in victory

See the price of our redemption,

see the Father's plan unfold

Bringing many sons to glory,

grace unmeasured, love untold

 

Come behold the wondrous myst'ry,

slain by death, the God of life

But no grave could e'er restrain Him,

praise the Lord, He is alive

What a foretaste of deliv'rance,

how unwavering our hope

Christ in power resurrected,

as we will be when He comes

 

What a foretaste of deliv'rance,

how unwavering our hope

Christ in power resurrected,

as we will be when He comes

SAVED MY SOUL

You my God have saved my soul

I am Yours forevermore

I won't be moved of this I'm sure

You are my God and You saved my soul

 

I was lost when you came for me

Held in chains by the enemy

But You broke them in victory

Now I'm free, I am free

 

You're my joy and You are my hope

I am saved by Your grace alone

I will sing of Your love for me

I am free, I am free

 

You my God have saved my soul

I am Yours forevermore

I won't be moved of this I'm sure

You are my God and You saved my soul

Now I stand with the King of Kings

He has paid for my every sin

And from now through eternity

I am free, I am free

 

You my God have saved my soul

I am Yours forevermore

I won't be moved of this I'm sure

You are my God and You saved my soul

 

Bridge (2x)

What once was dead is now alive

You gave to me the breath of life

You brought me up out from the grave

I'm bursting out with songs of praise

 

I'm bursting out with songs of praise

I'm bursting out with songs of praise

 

You my God have saved my soul

I am Yours forevermore

I won't be moved of this I'm sure

You are my God and You saved my soul
