PROVIDENCE CHURCH
JUNE 21, 2020

Welcome

Passing of the Peace: Though we are separated by distance our hearts are one in Christ. The peace of Christ be with you!

Doxology:
Praise God from Whom all blessings flow, Praise Him all creatures here below,
Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts, Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.

Call to Worship: Psalm 103
Pastor: As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him.
People: For He knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
Pastor: As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone and its place knows it no more.
People: But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children,
Pastor: to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.
People: The LORD has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all.
Pastor: Bless the LORD, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, obeying the voice of his word!
ALL: Bless the LORD, all his hosts, his ministers, who do his will! Bless the LORD, all his works, in all places of his dominion. Bless the LORD, O my soul!

Songs of Praise

Rejoice the Lord is King (Charles Wesley, 1746; tune John Darwall, 1770)
Rejoice, the Lord is King: your Lord and King adore!
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing, and triumph evermore.
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice!
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Jesus, the Savior reigns, the God of truth and love;
when he had purged our stains, he took his seat above.
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice!
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

His kingdom cannot fail, he rules o’er earth and heav’n;
the keys of death and hell are to our Jesus giv’n.
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice!
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Rejoice in glorious hope! Our Lord, the Judge, shall come,
and take his servants up to their eternal home.
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice!
Rejoice, again, I say, rejoice!

 

Open the Eyes of My Heart (Paul Baloche, 1997)
Open the eyes of my heart, Lord, open the eyes of my heart;
I want to see You, I want to see You. (2X)

To see You high and lifted up, shining in the light of Your glory.
Pour out Your power and love, as we sing holy, holy, holy.
(Repeat all)

Holy, holy, holy—Holy, holy, holy—Holy, holy, holy; I want to see You. (2X)
(Repeat all)
Open the eyes of my heart, Lord, open the eyes of my heart;
I want to see You, I want to see You. (2X)

 

One Thing I Ask (Andy Park)
One thing I ask, one thing I seek:
that I may dwell in Your house, O Lord,
all of my days, all of my life—
that I may see You Lord.

Hear me O Lord, hear me when I cry;
Lord, do not hide Your face from me.
You have been my strength, You have been my shield,
and You will lift me up.

One thing I ask, one thing I seek:
that I may dwell in Your house, O Lord,
all of my days, all of my life—
that I may see You Lord.

Confession/Assurance

Respond in Praise:

Nothing But the Blood (Robert Lowry, 1876)
What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

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

Nothing can for sin atone—nothing but the blood of Jesus;
naught of good that I have done—nothing but the blood of Jesus. (Chorus)

This is all my hope and peace—nothing but the blood of Jesus;
this is all my righteousness—nothing but the blood of Jesus. (Chorus 2X)

Scripture Reading: Colossians 3:12-17
This is the Word of the Lord.

Sermon: “Do Everything for Christ”

Hymn of Dedication:

You Are My All in All (Dennis Jernigan, 1991)
You are my strength when I am weak, You are the treasure that I seek;
You are my all in all.
Seeking You as a precious jewel, Lord, to give up, I’d be a fool.
You are my all in all.

Chorus: Jesus, Lamb of God, worthy is your name!
Jesus, Lamb of God, worthy is your name!

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame, rising again, I bless Your name;
You are my all in all.
When I fall down You pick me up, when I am dry You fill my cup.
You are my all in all. (Chorus)

You are my strength when I am weak, You are the treasure that I seek;
You are my all in all.
Seeking You as a precious jewel, Lord, to give up, I’d be a fool.
You are my all in all. (Chorus 2X)

Lord’s Prayer:
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil:
for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory. Amen

Hymn of Thanksgiving:

My Faith Looks Up to You (Renee Allsbrook, 2008)
My faith looks up to you, O Lamb upon the cross;
there, you exchanged righteous robes for my rags.
Nothing I feel or do can make it come untrue—
I am your child, I am your child.

Let your rich grace flow down and melt my heart of stone.
Kindle my love, since your love bled for me.
In me this flame will grow; our world your love will know—
a living fire, a living fire.

Anxious thoughts cloud my mind and grip my heart with fear;
dark threats alarm, cold waves splash, gale winds blow.
My faith smiles up at you; your voice of hope is true—
Jesus, my peace, Jesus, my peace…

I will hold on; I will hold on; I will hold on to the One who’s holding me!

When shadows of this world fade in heaven’s light—
all my life long just the hour before dawn—
all things will be made new; I will be there with you
forevermore, forevermore.

Benediction
